I love the theme, however m, I’m not getting wordwrap on mobile devices for Big Blue. Words ate cut off and go to the next line broken up.

How can I fix this. Is this for desktop only or for androids, etc ..

Howdy! I could have sworn I’ve been to this website before but after looking at a few of the
astrology articles I realized it’s new to me. Nonetheless, I’m certainly delighted I came across it and
I’ll be book-marking it and checking back frequently!

I need larger font in the posts, and can laboriously edit each paragraph through Dashboard. Size changes in style.css seem to be ignored, such as in “.entry{font-size:”
What would work?

Hi !

Just love the Big Blue theme and all the others you made… been using them a lot !

Got a question.
I’ve tried to add the comments link found in every post to the bottom of pages also. I’ve copied the code from the post page :

Classé dans |

in the page.php. The “categories” and the “modify” link appear but not the “add comments”. I think I should modify the comment.php file to allow comment on pages aside from posts but can’t figure out how !

Anyone can help me ?

Thanks !

Sorry, I meant to comment on the Blue Box theme. I can change this one, it’s the Blue Box where I have the problems.

Robin Reply

I love this theme. I’d just like the comments to be numbered so that people can refer back to a specific comment within the thread. Does anybody know how to make this change? I’d really appreciate the help.

Hi, just wondering if you might be able to help me get rid of the Blue Box logo in the left hand corner and replace it with my website’s name.

@DanGarion: Just put this code in your style.css file to make your entry links bold :-

.entry a {font-weight:bold;}

DanGarion Reply


I’m a big fan of this theme. I was wondering how I would go about making it so that any link showing up in an entry would be bold. I could probably figure it out if I mess with it for long enough, but I was wondering if you could point me in the right direction.

Is it possible (I know it’s possible) to make the comments appear in reverse order – most recent at the top?

Hrw, I for one would be very interesting in seeing your updates. I am very happy with this theme and having been using it for a while, but I know it can stand a little clean up. I posted earlier about a missing gif and never got a reply to that.


Hrw Reply

I am using this theme on my blog for few months.

Did some changes to it:

– WP 2.3 tags instead of categories
– many CSS changes
– full posts in archives

I will try to release my changes soon.

Hi Bob. Let me add my name to the list of people who thank you for this wonderful theme. I’m using it on my blog at the moment, and like it a lot!

I have one “error”, which I see in my logs, but I don’t notice any problems visually on the site. In your style.css file, you refer to “images/latestbck.gif” in the “commentlist” hover section. That file doesn’t exist in the zip file!

Also, I notice that your local download version (called bigblue.zip) has a very differences and is later than the big-blue-01.zip on the wordpress themes site.

Again, thanks for a wonderful theme!

Nice Theme Bob . You are doing great . I will surely try this theme on my blog http://on-life.org and tell you whether it is giving the same error as the theme which I mentioned in the prior comment as well.

You don’t really need or want that lifestyle, it might hurt y’all slowly more…….Just tell him you
don’t wanna repeat something your not too proud of z7uas.

Hi Bob, Thank you for your nice theme, I like it very much. However, I have met some bugs there:

1. When I click “By Archives” or “By Categories”, the displayed post will discard all the format including any html link, you can have a test on my web.

2. The Categories counting seem strange, I have totally 2 posts on a category, but it only displayed 1.

Brian Reply

Hi Bob,

I like your style. First I used the Silver Light theme, but wanted something with three columns, and found Big Blue. It was nice to see that I’d chosen two from the same creator.

Is it possible to modify Big Blue such that the blog posts are in the center, thus having side bars in the left and right margins?

Or do you know of such a theme that’s as elegant as your Big Blue or Blue Green? For example, the page links and blog title are on the same line, and do not take up too much room

In any case, thank you again for making such classy WordPress themes!

Douglas Banks Reply

As previously requested above, I would also like to be able to display an image rather than the blog title. It should be home/url/clickable too.

I’ve had many attempts to do just this but just can’t seem to get it right.

I, and many others I’m sure, would benefit from your wisdom Bob on this point.

It is a smashing theme. Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m loving your theme, but it doesn’t seem to work with WordPress 2.3 as both the sidebars vanish completely!

How do I fix this? I really don’t want to switch to another theme!!

Kind regards

Hi, i have installed your Big Blue template, but i cann’t see the Recent Post & Recents Comments, what i have to do to show it?


Sam Reply

Hi Bob! I really like this theme, but when I use it on my site the entries end up being really really messed up. I’ve tried reinstalling it on my blog and completely removing and reinstalling again..but no luck.

I’m fairly fluent with HTML (but can’t work out WP templates for the life of me!) Could you please take a quick squiz and maybe hint at what could be doin it?

Thanks man!

Hi Bob nice to know. Right know I`m using your big blue theme for my blog. Very nice theme you got. Is it possible to me add an adsense widget to the theme? Thank you.

David Chartier Reply

Any chance you could add some kind of padding to the left side of this theme like you have with Black and White? Otherwise if the browser window is too thin, the content column gets jammed up against the left window border and it’s hard to read.

Gorgeous themes though, especially your 3-columns. Keep ’em coming!

Wonderful theme you have here. I like the simplicity of the layout and calm colors. I’m using it now on my website. Thank you!
