    I would like to swtich from cascading comments to alternating shaded backgrounds. Is this something that can be quickly and easily done? I can figure out the background part, I’m just having a problem with the code for the rest of the comment functions. Perhaps this is in your next version? Thanks.

    Do you mean you want to switch from the threaded comment to just a simple one, without the threaded comment functionality?

    Is there a function to do this? I may not have come across it…

    I actually don’t mind the cascading effect, but what happens beyond 10 comments? to the same reply?

    If it gets to 10 levels deep already, the last level of the comment reply won’t have the reply link there anymore, so your visitors can only reply to the same comment up to 10 levels deep.

    ok, and is there a simple way to switch it to nonthreaded?

    Yes, in the Settings > Discussion admin page.

    I’m trying to reposition the date and category the way you have it in your current blog… may I ask if you could paste that style.css code for it here? I would like the date to read Month, Day, and Year.

    I have a hunch I should look inside loop.php 🙂

    You need to use the WordPress’ the_time() function to output the date in the format you want. Read more about it here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/the_time.

    Also, please understand that I cannot help you with every single modification that you want to do, since I’m doing this voluntarily and I don’t exactly have a lot of free time. This forum is intended primarily for users of the theme who encounters technical problem with the theme, not to help people do custom modification to the theme to suit their needs. For that, I do accept paid freelance work to do the modifications for you.

    Also, please consider donating to help support the theme’s support and development.

    Thanks.

    Hey thanks, and that’s completely understandable. I ask these questions for quick answers if they should happen to have them (or in this case a copy/paste). I’m not asking you to do the coding for me. I would like to put you onto the credits section for helping me out here. Let me know if this is good for you. Since this is nonprofit and I don’t have a budget (not yet anyway), I am unfortunately unable to pay for freelance work at this time.
