    Here is my site using the Graphene Theme. Thanks a lot for an awesome theme!

    Let me know what you guys think.



    Very nice! Simple, yet elegant. Excellent choice of colors. I like the black widget backgrounds with the red “read more” buttons.

    You can make your “read more” buttons show different colors when a user mouses over. Insert something like this into your custom css:

    .block-button:hover {
    background: -moz-linear-gradient(#D1F8FE, #C4EDFC) repeat scroll 0 0 transparent;
    color: #0276FD;

    Of course, you will need to change the colors to your liking. I just think it gives the user a slight, but measurable, increase of an “interactive” experience.

    Good tip, Josh. I’ll use that on my bookblog, which I’m updating. Thanks.



    Thanks guys! I have made some changes. I think it looks pretty nice. Although I cant get a banner in the Header Widget Box to center. Its always left justified no matter what I put in the code.



    All four banners in the widget area looked centered to me. I’m using Opera 11.52 and Firefox 7.0.1

    What browser are you using?



    Im talking about a HEADER widget. At the top of the page. I tried it a few times with no luck.

    See this post for an example of how to format & use a header widget. A header widget really can be made to appear outside of the normal flow using this kind of styling. If you want something that fits in the flow of the page, you might want to try using an action hook.

    If you want to take a closer look at my CSS that I use to style a header widget (I use one bit of code for the widget itself and another for the content), you can see my child theme’s css here.

    Good luck!



    Thanks, I have made some changes. What do you think now?
