Thanks, appreciate it.

Hi Davide, Ok, VOCE RSS come from your Italian translations. Your translations developer already change the FEED RSS to be VOCE RSS. Or the simple way to change, make it manual. Don’t use the META widget.

Bob, I love your theme but if I have an image which is linked it has an ugly yellow border.

For example, if you check out These posts You’ll see each of the images has a nasty yellow outline.

Any ideas how I can remove this.

Great work on the theme and thank you for sharing it 🙂

Cheers

If not then please suggest seo friendly and good looking theme.
waiting for suggestions…
Thanks for suggestions in advance

Thanks.

Cannot get Comments to work. They are enabled in Discussion, but the theme shows just “Comments are closed” and no comment field to allow anyone to enter comments. Any ideas what I need to do? Thank you!

I’m working more and more with this theme and really lke it a lot. I do have one problem that’s driving me nuts. (A very short trip)

I have a page that displays a large picture. There ia a lone or two or three of text below the picture, telling what is going on in the picture.

It’s done in a table, using two … to get the text under the picture.

My problem is that the text clips off (truncates) on the right side. I can’t figure out how to get the text to wrap properly so it displays all the text.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Thanks.

Hi, Absolutely love this theme. It is perfect for my ecommerce sites. I need some help though, how do I get rid of the search box in the header – I have already added one to the side bar. Please help, it is driving me mad! Many thanks

Love this theme, but I’m having a problem.

I modified the header graphic to show the site name and a tagline.

I then copied the theme to a WordPress installation in a subfolder, expecting to get the same title and tagline.

Instead, I get a blank header, no graphic.

Everything is the same on the two sites — header.php, index.php, style.css, both logo files.

This is driving me nuts! Does anyone have any idea where I should look for a solution?

Thanks,

Barry

Hi. Thanks for the wonderful theme. I’m currently testing it using WPRobot plugin for my ebay store but have run into a few problems. One in particular that I can’t figure out. I”m getting the following error: ‘Fatal error: Call to undefined function related_posts()in /home/a8765031/public_html/wordpress/wp-content/themes/limau-orange-toolbar/single.php on line 33’. I’m wondering if I”m missing a plugin or two. Help would be much appreciated.

I really like this theme. As others have said, it’s light, bright and airy — a pleasing combination.

I need to modify the theme to have the posts on the left and a center column that is fixed. I’ve looked at all the files and can’t figure out which ones need to be changed to make this modification.

I know about using a widget to blank out the redundant material on the left side, but that’s only the start. How do I declare that the newly cleared-out area on the left is where the posts are supposed to go and that the center column is to have fixed ocntent?

Any thoughts?

On January 1st. of 2009, I woke up and I looked myself in the mirror with not clothes. I was not happy of what I was seeing and I thought “why do I look like this if I have enough time to work out and a gym?” – I realized that I needed strong motivation to start.
That same day, I decided to go to the gym and search for diet options online. My workout routine was cardio for 20 minutes, weight lifting for 20 minutes. The second day the same, and the third day I stopped because I felt lazy and I preferred stay at home watching TV and that was the end of my exercise motivation. Does this sound like you? This is just one more time I started and finished in a couple of day…that was the end of my weightloss stories’s exercise motivation.
In order to start hCG is important to be fully prepared with all the tools, materials and information you will need along the phases of the hCG diet program.
To make it easy for you, the whole hCG weight loss program using oral sublingual hCG is basically on 2 phases of 21 days each. If you are still thinking on when does hCG start is when you take a serious decision analyzing that “you want to have a definitive physical change and a new figure for life.” Once you decide when you must take account of what we are providing here:http://www.hcgweightlossdiets.com/hcg-diet-products.html We include all the necessary items you must have when you get ready. Give your body a chance to a new figure now!

hi bob

i began using this theme a while ago and what i liked was the crosshair cursor and the yellow highlighting on search results in the page/post – however i have had to reload the theme several times because of db issues unrelated to limau and as a result i have installed the later versions of limau which do not have these classy features – they make the theme very classy! i have managed to put the crosshair back but the yellow highlighting from search word to post/page is not showing yellow – can you provide download for two versions therefore for limau – one with the old features i liked as well as the newer one, keeping the more updated features for 2.7. as well as crosshair, highlighting etc – also would like a page/post template without sidebars – how to do? thanks – at nevin.freehostia.com/thomas

OK I found the fix.

In archive.php the last four lines are as follows:
===============================

Change this to:

Bob, excellent theme, but the footer doesn’t align properly when viewing Archive links. It’s not just my blog doing it. Every other Limau Orange blog I’ve seen does it. Surprised that nobody’s spotted that earlier.

The bottom orange bar spans the length of the screen and the text moves to the right.

What can be done to fix this?

I truly like the simplicity of this blog. It is clean, easy to view and I love the color orange. I have already modified the header with my own info but kept most of the original work intact. With your design, do you offer any kind of assistance with the back-end – not necessarily with programming, but just making sure all configurations are Search Engine Friendly.

Please feel free to email directly at if that is possible. Again, I appreciate your fantastic design!

All the best,
Daniel

Any idea how to make the seach box smaller? I just want to make the text input section of the top search box (header section) a tiny bit smaller but I cannot find anywhere in the theme files to do it. I would have thought it was is in the style.css file? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How do I alter how my categories and sub-categories are displayed? Presently when I click on my main category it displays all of my subs beneath it, one on top of the other. I do not want this. How do I alter these settings? Thanks.

First THANK YOU for your work. I’m using this theme (Orange Limau) but for some reason the footer is not showing on my home page but it is on all other pages. Any suggested fixes?

I want the same theme which the above site have. I came to know from his html source that he get the theme from blogohblog.com but how he can show all post in line. check out this front page.
he had also removed the linkback to your blog and he doesnt mentioned that this blog is powered by wordpress.

pls show me how to show all post like this blog?

@Maeve:-

In the WP-Admin > Settings > Privacy there is one simple setting:

Blog Visibility

I would like my blog to be visible to everyone, including search engines (like Google, Sphere, Technorati) and archivers

I would like to block search engines, but allow normal visitors

It was defaulted to “block”

@Joe:- … Okay, a little research via the trusty twitter and I found a stupid Privacy setting in WP that was set to noindex.

Thought i’d throw the resolution up here in case anyone else comes along with the prob.

Hi .. I am using Limau Orange as well as Firebug themes .. and love them.

However on two sites I’m getting a line in the head
which of course is killing the indexing. Ive looked at the Robots.txt file on the server which is fine .. but it’s appearing in the Head and can’t find out where to kill it.

Any ideas? Help!!

I love this theme, except for the color.
Anyway to change the color?

I only know the basics of how to work with WordPress (i.e. changing themes, widgets, etc)
Don’t know how to edit them, unless given detail instructions.
Hope you can help.
Thanks!

Hi, I really Love the theme you created and i am really happy to get the theme. But I am in a trouble in a sense when i try to place empty comment from internet explorer 7 It shows 500 internal Server Error. in contrast it works fine with IE 6 and Mozilla Fire fox. Please spread little light on it. Waiting for response.

Best Regards

Great simple theme friend, Thanks for the update. I am making a static file using this theme in WP and I have not earned a lot from internet as soon as this site gives some income i will surely donate for the work of this theme so that U can give more beautiful themes like this 🙂

Hi.

I’m having trouble replacing the adsense code that shows up in the upper left-hand corner of my page with your Limau Orange Theme. Can you help me…?

Thanks.

How can I get rid of the gray frame/border around images inserted in my posts?

PS – love the theme…as a small business owner who finds herself wearing MANY hats, I appreciate the simplicity of the design.

Has anyone implemented Google Adsense Search successfully? When I point to a page it just redirects to index.php :[ Any ideas as to why?

I’ve tried both 0.1 and 0.2 and run into the same problem (I’m sticking with 0.1 since I don’t want ads).

The CSS seems to fully apply to the sidebars, but the actual blog entries themselves aren’t rendered properly, and I’ve tested both IE and Firefox. It looks as though the font colour, paragraph spacing and bullet icons just disappear.

This is a straight download and install and I haven’t done anything except change the logo.gif.

Any ideas???

Hi,
Really a nice theme…!

How can remove the “Text link ads” on the top of the hompage and the “get google toolbar” on the keft sudebar?

Sorry but I’m really a novice with the code!!!

Jai,
I’ve been using your Limau Orange theme for some time w/o problems. I like it very much (altho I did get rid of the orange!)

Today I’ve been working with font sizes and something strange is going on. First the entire style.css file vanished during an ftp so I know what happens when there’s no style sheet. I restored it, but now something else is going on.

My site comes up correctly in Safari and Explorer, but in Mozilla and in Fire Fox, it comes up as if the style.css file has gone away.

Please can you advise me on this?

Hi, I’m switching my blog over to WP from Blogger. I love this theme but am wondering if there is a 2-column version? I’ve gotten feedback that the 3-column is too wide for some screens. Is there a 2-column version out there anywhere? Thanks.

I am having some trouble with the left column. I dropped the Search box and Pages widgets into the left column. When Search was on top (in the Widgets Dashboard), it displayed to the right of the Pages menu. When I put the Pages widget on top, Search was flush to the right. Is there something I’m doing wrong? I’m using Firefox. Here is the page I’m working on so you can see it: http://www.brandiekajino.com

I love the theme, and it’s been fun playing with it, as you can see. 😉

Thanks!

Hi There,

Great themes.

I am having an issue with IE7 not displaying the text correctly after the first post. It appears to be larger and in bold.

Yet Firefox seems to handle this okay.

Any ideas or suggestions as it’s starting to drive me nuts?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Author!

I love your theme, there is just one question: How can I add another page widget? I need at least two page widgets and there is just one…?

Please help me!

Rokas, I agree. I will continue posting and wait for google to come back. I’ve installed the all in one seo plugin as well as I’ve seen that it works fairly well with sites that have used it.

Rokas Reply

I can only tell that I have no problems with this theme. And my site is indexed normaly, or at least good enough for me, because i am happy with my traffic.

can you post your blog adress so we could look at it?

I only think that if you have no links, so google-bot came to your site from a ping after a post, and started indexing, and then forgot it. But if you post many times, and then create many links in other sites, and if google-bot comes in 200 times a day, then I am sure everythink will be OK (but you do not want google-bot coming this often, because it will eat up all your bandvidth). This is my personal opinion.

What I would suggest: you can take another skin, or spend the same time posting 10 more posts or getting links from 5 free directories or something. I think it would be better than sitting and thinking about it, and changing the theme and looking at the site for 2 more days 🙂 go spend the time better 🙂 and wait a bit for google to gome back 🙂 we say the skin works great 🙂

Eric Reply

Stewart, I hear what you’re saying but site: is supposed to return with all the pages that google has indexed. When I perform this search with my other sites I dont get a list of generic results rather I get a list of all my posts indexed by google with the title of the post and a description. I’ve tries this three other sites and I dont get generic results. There is something about the theme that is causing this.
For example, productive-creative.com a site above that uses this theme doesnt get generic results. If you do a search on the site: you’ll get a list of the posts indexed by google. I noticed that he is using the All in one SEO plugin and what he has in the plugin is what is returning in the results. Check his source code.

Rokas, I dont know if this is correct. I have one blog that I am using with zero links coming in and almost every page has been indexed by google.

Rokas Reply

to eric >>
I use this theme and it is good,

when i do what you posted, and I click on the google cashed copy of the site, i can see that all the copy is in google cash, not only the left sidebar, or a footer. So it means, that the whole page is indext by google.

It does not matter how long your blog is online, that is is it already 1 year or 1 day. What is important is the number of links to the blog and all its independent pages. If you creat a blog and post there, but have 0 incoming links, google can NOT-TO-FIND you for a year, and will not index you. But if you link to your main page and all the others, (I do it from my big site) then it can be crolled in several hours and appear in google. The trick is to have many links, and through each link google-bot comes to your site from different directions to eat your site up 🙂 have to do a bit of link building eric.

Eric,

I use this theme for my book review blog and I think it’s extremely search engine friendly. The only reason you are getting the same result when you put site:www.whatever.com into Google is because you are not searching for any specific words on the site and it stands to reason that the first thing that should be returned is the left sidebar as this is the first thing declared in the HTML.

Eric Reply

I loved the theme and started using it for my site because it had everything I wanted however, I dont think its SEO friendly.

Recently I checked the index stats for my site and noticed that only one page has been indexed by google. My site has been up now for over a month. What really bothered me about that is that the description that Google had for my page was the information listed in my sidebar i.e. pages, about, instead of providing a description of my post.

At first I thought it might be something wrong with my site but after checking the index stats for the sites in the comments above I noticed the same results.

Here, see for yourself. The following sites use your theme. Copy and paste each line into a google search field and see the results for yourself.

site:blog.brochurebuilders.com
site:www.idratherbewriting.com
site:www.dizi.nl
site:adworldclassifieds.com
site:ezrawinton.com

Is there a fix for this besides installing an SEO plugin?

Hi, I see you have plenty of questions to field. 😉 I love the theme but there is one thing I’d like to change:

The paged archives bring up the full sidebar (pages, archives, blogroll, meta) but the single page sidebar stops after archives and does not display blogroll and meta. How can I change the single.php file to have the full sidebar come up?

Coffee Reply

Great theme! Have a few questions for making some changes….

1. can I change it to 2 column instead of three? How?

2. How to add image to the header?

3. How to increase header size?

Thanks. 🙂

Thanks for theme Bob. i like it so much, because i like orange. i just start to make a website. there is no problem for now. but if there is a problem may i ask anything to you? thanks again.

I removed line #header h1 { text-indent:-10000px; margin:0; padding:0; }
#header h1 a { display:block; background:url(images/logo.gif) no-repeat left top; height:56px; } in your css.

is there a way to show to blog subtitle, too.

Rokelis Reply

Hello,
I have quick question: I am using this theme for some time, still making it look like I want it 🙂 Now taging is on in wordpress 2.3 but I cannot find the tags under the post i make. I guess this theme does nots show tags.

Is there a standard code to place in the post.php so that the tags would appear?

I dont know if you have a reply, but at the moment I will try to use a plugin: something like ‘simple tags’ to try to place a line of tags under the post near the ’email”print”track’ and othe rthings. maybe you have some thoughts will it work? and what should I do? mabe an update of the theme sometime latter?

I will subscribe to comments, so I get all the latter comments of the owner or users/colleques.

Thankx.

So I am using this theme on a blog I work with but we cant seem to get the images to work right.
When we insert an image it only shows at the top left of the post. When we use the image tools to flush right or wrap the text around it it doesnt work but I have seen it done in other blogs using this theme.
Is there something specific that needs to be done to make an image show in side the text?

Hi admin.

Great theme. Thinking about changing to it. But what do I have to do, to make a fluid theme instead of one with fixed width?

Thanks alot in advance,

Love the theme and have been using it for a while.

This is a great template! I just switched over today. I enlarged the header and have covered the search function. Is there a way I can embed the search into the header I’ve created. Thanks a ton!

Hey John (or anyone else out there),

I changed the logo on my blog from the default limau orange to my own creation (like John has done on his blog) only it is not appearing. When you go over it with the mouse something is there, but I don’t see anything. Any advice out there would be great, thanks.

One other thing: does anyone know how to put an image in the sidebars of limau orange? I just want to have one or two static images that I can put in there…

Cheers,
ezra

Hi Lori,

In the CSS file, you will find a section like this:
#header h1 a { display:block; background:url(images/logo.gif) repeat-x right top; height:67px;}
Change “logo.gif” to your image’s name, and you should be able to see your own header image.

Still trying to figure out the excerpt thing, but now I have another issue. When I post in multiple categories, it shows multiple posts on the home page. For example, if I post an article under 3 categories, it shows that same article on the home page 3 times. Could really use some advice!

Thank you!

I tried changing my font size in the .css file from

body { font-family:’Verdana’; font-size:11px; }

to:

body { font-family:’Verdana’; font-size:12px; }

because I want a larger font in the body of my posts…the content.

That didn’t work for the front, main page but the font did get larger when I click a single post.

How do I enlarge the font on the front page?

Thanks for the great theme!

Great theme Bob! Check out my page. I’m learning wp, css, html, and the little bit of php I need as I go. Please forgive me if this is a noob question. When I add a new page in the wp-admin. It still only shows “About” in the links under the Pages header. Is there another bit of code I need to add to the Theme Editor? I’ll keep looking around, but let me know if you have the chance. Thanks!

Jeni Reply

I’m having a small issue- I have excerpts enabled for my homepage (index.php: get_excerpt) but when I use adsense deluxe or even directly add ad code, my excerpts don’t show- only the title. You can see this here: hcgdietinfo.com/articles

However, if I remove excerpts and replace it in index.php with “get_content” the full post is viewable. I prefer having excerpts though. Any clue how to correct this?

Great theme by the way- by far one of the best I’ve worked with.

It’s a very nice theme. Thanks.

I would also like to know how to remove the yellow highlight. Would you be able to point out where the code for the highlighting is? Thanks! 🙂

I noticed some CSS issues with IE7 while testing it on http://themes.wordpress.net/testrun/?wptheme=4213;

A all the sub menu items for example “child 1” push the menu list down on HOVER. It looks like because of the border. There are no two level menu items on your demo.

Trying to decide between Lemao and Big Blue for our blog on redevelopment property (teardowns) – we use orange in our color scheme.

Hi Bob,
Very nice, flexible theme. I’m considering using it on a couple new sites. One question for you – there are text areas throughout the theme where there is a yellow highlight over the text. One example is on the single.php file:

You can follow any responses to this entry through the feed.

Where is the css style for that yellow highlight? I’d like to remove it if possible.

I re-uploaded the css file as you advised but the logo and the hr still do not appear on my IE v.6.0 browser even after I have cleared the browser cache.

Do you know what the problem could be? I made up my own logo to replace default logo, and it came out fine with firefox but there was still nothing with IE.

Grateful for your help.

Hi,

I love this template .. simple and clean. The logo doesn’t show up on IE. I removed the logo like you advised but the tag line is missing. Can anything be done about this? I have a witty tag line that I’d like to appear below the name of the blog.

Also the the lines (hr line?) don’t show on IE.
Is there anything that can be done to correct this? I want to say, to hell with IE, but there are still folks out there who use IE and I want the template to appear as it was intended on both firefox and IE.

Hi Davide, Ok, VOCE RSS come from your Italian translations. Your translations developer already change the FEED RSS to be VOCE RSS. Or the simple way to change, make it manual. Don’t use the META widget.

Hello, i’m italian and i download this theme for my site (excuse for my english). I have a question: when in the right sidebar upload the widget “META”, why in the voice “Syndicate RSS” i’m appear the link “VOCE Rss”. I can sostitute whit the voice “FEED RSS”? Thanks for your great templates.

Hi steve. I think i forgot to upload soft copy for the logo. Now you can download minor update for this theme.

To remove logo and replace with text just remove line #header h1 { text-indent:-10000px; margin:0; padding:0; }
#header h1 a { display:block; background:url(images/logo.gif) no-repeat left top; height:56px; } in your css.

Only text title will show up.
