    thanks a lot for this theme. It works fine, it looks nice, it improves the readablility of the blog.
    Also, the templates are very well structured and it makes it easy to adapt even for a real real dummy.
    Thanks a lot for sharing this great work.

    This theme is amazing. Only problem is I can’t add pictures to posts as it doesn’t resize around images well.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again for a great theme.

      @conreyt: Hmm…do you have a link to where this is happening? I’m not quite sure what you mean. Thanks.

        I have been hunting for an orange Grey theme for a while. I even tried to edit K2, but that was over my head. Not to mention the problems it created with my widgets. So far I am very impressed with Orange Zest.

        I have noted a couple of problems with the display of photos in this theme as well. In the main page, if a photo is taller than the text, the end of post Grey bar will display just after the text ends, not the photo. See for an example. Also, I have page for my bikes that was a total pain to get the photos to display above the text instead of beside it. None of the alignment selections seemed to fix it. I ended up putting the text and images into tables as a workaround.

        Also, any chance widget collapser might work with this theme in the future? Thanks.

    @Tim Brown: About the issues with image alignment, I think the problem may lie with Orange Zest’s stylesheet. Try to find the following:

    #left_side img { float: left; padding: 0 10px 5px 0 }

    and comment out the float: left; like this:

    #left_side img { /* float: left; */ padding: 0 10px 5px 0 }

    Can you clarify what you mean by widget collapser? Thanks for your comment.

    • Tim Brown

      I made the change above:
      #left_side img { /* float: left; */ padding: 0 10px 5px 0 }
      And the image in the post still overlaps the bottom post border.

      Sidebar Widget collapser is a plug-in that adds a [-] or [+] beside each sidebar widget allowing them to be collapsed or expanded.
      I think the problem may be variable names in the theme and what the plug-in expects to see.
      Thanks for your help.

    @Tim: Okay, this must be some other “float” in the stylesheet causing this. I’ll test some images out on the demo server to see if I can figure it out.

    I’ve never heard about the Sidebar Widget Collapser but I’ll certainly look into it.

    • Tim Brown

      Found the float that was causing the problem. It was right below the first one you recommended commenting out.

      .when { /* float:left; */ color:#999; padding:14px; font-size:11px; }


      • Timm

        That did the trick! Must comment out “float:left” on both the “#left_side img” and “.when” lines. Now that it’s fixed, I’m loving this theme.

  • conreyt

    Did commenting out that line correct the issue?

    My behaviour was the same as Tims..


  • Leland

    @Tim: Thanks for the update, glad you got it working.

    @conreyt: It looks like it should correct the issue. Could you try commenting out those 2 floats in the stylesheet and see if you notice an improvement?

  • conreyt

    @Leland: all fixed.

  • Alex.Rainy

    Very nice theme! But how can I move sidebar to the left instead right?
