Hi, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any assistance is very much appreciated.

By refilling spray bottles with natural or home-prepared formulas, you can save money that would otherwise be spent on new containers of commercial solutions. Women who have a normal or oily skin and who also live in a warm climate usually find that their perfumes last longer through the day. Remembering this will help you pick out a satisfactory perfume, as you should pay more attention to the middle and base notes.

Some voluntary work which involves travelling, for an organization like the United Nations or in some well reputed NGO could again be an enriching experience.

Either way, the scent of that candle was an important purchasing factor. It is toxic and might cause dizziness and sickness if you use too much. The magical fragrance of a well prepared perfume can guide our senses to a mystic land, where we can only think of leading our life in a romantic way.

Asking questions are in fact fastidious thing if you are not understanding anything fully, however this paragraph presents pleasant understanding yet.

Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But just imagine if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this website could undeniably be one of the best in its niche. Wonderful blog!

Hey Bob,
You have got the best looking themes out of all I have searched on the web. I have not tested them yet.
I like simple paper a lot but think some of themes lack one particular feature. Is it possible to create a submenu widget, so that secondary level pages would sit in their own window right under 1st level buttons?
It would be really cool.
Thanks mate

Hello, congratulations for the theme. It’s very nice. I would like to change the width
Sidebar, how can I do? Thanks for the answers.

Why is it that the “Simple Paper” template does not have the “more posts” or “older posts” on bottom of the index page (or at the bottom of the archives)?

How can I add/correct this? I not, I’ll have to move from the template, which is not something I care to do.

Thank you.

I love the theme, but was wondering, are comments on pages disabled? Even when “enable comments” is clicked on in my wordpress page settings, no comments come on. I would love to have comments on my pages.

Have installed this theme on my main blog – amazing theme. I’m a web developer myself and know how much time it takes to make something like this.
But some problems arise in IE7 with WP 2.7.1. I’ll drop a note when I’ll have a solution for that.

I’m sorry if this is kind of a shot in the dark here guys, but I’m wondering if you know of a WordPress theme that would work for a download site, or a theme that could easily be modified to be used on a download site?

Hi there,

A big WOW! Thanks, this looks lovely. I’m in the process of designing a theme myself and I would love to submit it to your site to be distributed to other readers. I will get in touch with you once it’s ready.

I really like the minimalism in the theme, and how the menu always carries down as you scroll down the page. Great job, keep up the great work! πŸ˜‰

Wow, this no-header, no-footer layout feels so interesting.

It’s a pity I change themes so rarely (still on customized Statement). πŸ™‚
