Wow.. It is a small world, I live within 10 miles of colonial lol..

Let me know if you need any help, I had fun making the plugin Smile\

PS: Most of the coding of the plugin is NOT for the sidebar form. The code that processes the sidebar is a total of like 50 lines at the most, so most of that plugin can be cut out for you.
thanks for nice theme.
screenshot.png is very large.
useful, but I liked the theme.
Awesome theme - thank you! Works perfektly in FF, Chrome, Safari, Safari mobile. Unfortunately, it does not in IE (8+9). What's gone wrong there?

I have release the new version in extend. The fix is below:

The comment at the top of the template file needs to come after the doctype.

Instead of:
Code:
<!--
Author: Mike Henken
Author URL: http://michaelhenken.com/
Theme Adapated From: http://www.html5webtemplates.co.uk/templates/simplestyle_4/index.html
-->
<!DOCTYPE HTML>

It needs to be:
Code:
<!DOCTYPE HTML>
<!--
Author: Mike Henken
Author URL: http://michaelhenken.com/
Theme Adapated From: http://www.html5webtemplates.co.uk/templates/simplestyle_4/index.html
-->

Or you can just remove the credits to me entirely and just leave the doctype on top

Now that's what I call a quick, helpful, competent reply. I put the doctype on top, and zoom. Fantastic. Thank you!

Thank you Smile
By the way, In the new version (in extend), I included an additional template file with no sidebar.
Another question: The search option only refers to pages, but not to news; news posts (containing the search term) will not be found. Is there any quick fix?
No quick fix that I know of. You could create a new template for your "Blog" page and put the blog search bar in place of the pages search bar in that template file.
Or somebody updates the News Manager to support searching with the I18N Search plugin as described here...
What happened to this guy's screenshots? They disappeared.
