    Would it be possible to use your theme in as well?

    Can I follow the same fore mentioned directions?

    Thank you!

    Oh my God!

    I do like the colors and the context behind the theme.

  5. Oskar says:


    I’m using a variation of your theme on my site. I tweaked some stuff, mostly colors.

    Thanks for the great theme!

    Thank you very much for this great theme!

    I never had a blog before and I have to learn a lot about it. I know nothing about “ping”, “permalink” and things like that, but I’ll try to find it out.

    I’m using your fantastic theme, but I´ve got a problem editing code. I don´t want to show the popup which shows the URL and I don´t know how to fix it. I also don´t want to show the big date on the begining of each post.

    How can I do that?

    Thank you very much!

    I really do like your theme Falling Dreams. I’m using and loving it. The only thing I was wondering was if there was a page function that seems to be supported by the other themes.

    I created a page and it does not show up in the side bar… i switched themes and the other themes support it. Is there something that i’ve missed or code that I can insert?

    I hope you continue to create new themes… great mind!

    I loved your theme as a starting point. You can see how i adapted the design to suit my blog at I DID fix the sidebar.php to reference the emoticons folder wp-includes/images, not wp-images, which doesnt exist in my WP installation. I also tweaked the Meta section a bit. Hope you like what i did with your work! It was an inspiration.

    Would be cool if it supported the sidebar widgets, if i can tweak the file i’ll post the code. :)

  20. Joman says:

    Hi – super cool theme ! great. I tried to change the images above (in the header) dream0.jpg, etc… this works fine, but when I add more images (as you suggested), the header images stay blank. Any way to work around ??

    May 19th 2006 at 11:34 am

  21. razvan.teodorescu says:

    Hi Joman!

    You need also to update the header_graphic function located in header.php file.

    May 19th 2006 at 11:44 am

  22. monica says:

    i’m having the same problem w/the header graphics. i updated the header_graphic function in the header.php file like this:

    function header_graphic() {
    echo “/images/”;
    echo “dream”.$num.”.jpg”;

    but i have blank space where my graphic(s) should be.

    i am a coding moron, so i probably did something wrong.

    even with this issue (and again, i’m sure it’s an issue on my end!) this is a FANTASTIC theme, and i am very grateful that you decided so generously to share it with us. :)

    Thanks a lot! Here are some examples to better understand how function works:
