    Hello. First, thank you for this free theme. I enjoy it and I am currently using it on my blog Simplu.

    One question or request. I would very much appreciate a drop-down functionality for menus, since I want to add sub-categories to my blog. How can this be done? Or, can you make a small upgrade to the theme? :)

    Thank you.

      I fully agree with you! This theme is gorgeous and it would be great if there was a tutorial about creating dropdown submenus. I think this is its only disadvantage.

    "SEO Super Comments" is not working with the theme "Blue Grace". SEO Super Comments has an option of 'Template file in use' with "single.php" in it but "Blue Grace" has only "index.php" page. Please help. Regards.

      Alright, I got it working. Have to comment three lines
      // if ($comcountstrip_nofollow($link);
      in file seo-super-comments.php
      and the problem solved.

    Hi again,

    not sure if my first comment came through. Can I change out the pics for custom pics.

    Your stuff is very interesting, well done! We've just built our site on WP platform and I found WP easier to work with than Joomla or Drupal

    Any chance submenus can be fixed to work with WP 3.x menu system? :) I can see the parent menus, but no subs.
