  1. Hey, I definitely actually dig that orange header thingummy on the dashboard (love seeing how many posts & such I have), but otherwise, very nice! Definitely eagerly awaiting a release of this so I can give it a whirl.

  2. Kevin – cool, thanks πŸ™‚

    Jeff – I did wonder if people would want that or not. Maybe I could add an admin screen so that people can toggle the bits that might be more controversial.

  3. Hey Ben –

    I am currently using your theme with a couple of changes (I am on WordPress.com so I didn’t touch the CSS or anything like that). If you check my blog (http://hummingbird604.com) you’ll notice that people seem to want more contrast between the background color and the text. How can I change that within WordPress.com? Or is there anything I can do?


  4. Hi Raul – the only way to change the text colours is to buy the wordpress.com css upgrade and then alter the font properties.

  5. I’m going to turn this into an official plugin. I have applied to WordPress.org for space in the plugin library and will release it once they hand it over.

  6. Thanks for this plugin, I like it a lot. The only problem is that it messes up the formatting of the “Press This” pop up window. Any chance this getting fixed in the next update?


  7. Hi Brad – glad you like it. I don’t think I will be updating the plugin for some time since the next version of WordPress is going to have a totally new interface (read more here… it’s been updated since then as well). I suspect I will end up making more tweaks but I will wait until the new redesign is completed.

  8. Hey that’s great to know Ben, thanks for the good info on Crazyhorse… I guess I’ve been out of the loop on WP dev. No pun intended πŸ™‚
