    thanks … it’s very nice

  15. Thanks for the great theme! I’ve been using it on my blog for quite some time. One thing I’d like to see: When on the home page, the “Home” tab should be highlighted blue in active state, as when viewing other pages.

    Suggestions for a quick fix?


  16. Thanks for the great theme!

    Quick question: How can I make the “Home” button blue when viewing home, as with other pages?

    @Rijmar:- With must be width!

  19. Rijmar says:

    Hi Bob,

    Would it be possible to make Silver Light flexible in with, for example a sort of menu with choices for this?

    In the hearder next to the name of the website it would be very handy to have the possiblity to put a banner next to it. (468×60) Perhaps it’s possible to incorporate this so it would be easy to put it there.

    Furthermore it’s a shame the template doesn’t react on putting widgets in the sidebar. For example the tags aren’t placeable there because the template seems to not support it.

    For the rest a real good and simple template.

    Kind regards,

    I need a regular drop down menu for my client and after spending hours setting this up, it appears you don’t have it as a drop down.
    I am really bummed out. It did not even occur to me to check that.

  21. Jonathon says:

    Ohh it’s coolest thmes i have ever seen big big thank you :)

  22. JL says:

    Any chance that you will update this to work with WP 2.7? I like the template, but want to upgrade WordPress and am concerned that the current version does not support 2.7. Currently, my only option is to change themes which is not ideal.

    Thank you!

  23. bean says:

    I have been trying to get threaded comments to work with this theme but no success. I have been able to do it on other themes using these directions at http://ottodestruct.com/blog/2008/09/29/wordpress-27-comments-enhancements/ but I can’t get it to work on Silverlight or techicon.
    Please advise.

    hi BOB,
    this is very very good theme, very easy to customize,

    can you upgrade it for 2.7 please

  26. Detoam says:

    @Detoam:- never mind I missed one div tag

  27. Detoam says:

    First of all it is an awesome theme and is easy to customize. I love it.
    I do have a slight issue though. For some reason the sidebar moved to the extreme right side on the main page (http://www.sumofx.com/). Post pages and single pages are still doing fine.
    I went through the code, but I still can’t see where the mistake is. Could You please help?

  28. I-MAN says:

    can you convert this theme to work with wordpress 2.7

    make be you can also do some small improvements, its the best theme in your theme collection. so it worth it.

    Hey Bob
    You have a nice work with this Silver Bullet theme.
    So nice that we use it at http://www.edu-gate.ro.
    Just that you changed the theme – in the past, we could place our logo near the header of the website.
    Now it simply disappeared all of a sudden (and I don’t know why)
    Any idea why this happened?
    Your time is very appreciated…

  42. M@ says:

    @iCalvyn:- please let me know if you ever find it. I love this theme but I would like three cols as well.

  43. Konc says:

    I’m a bit curious as to why there is no edit link in single entry view. Sure I can go through the WP admin, search for the entry and then edit it but it feels like it would be better to have a direct link to it from the entry itself.

    As far as I can see the edit link only appears in multiple post views (looking at entries by tag, by category or just the entry listing in general).

  44. Steven says:


    You can do this manually by putting code in the footer, or check out http://andywibbels.com/post/1394 on how to use a plugin…

  45. simon says:

    I just launched my first blog and luv this theme and will check out others here.
    One question, how to i add google analytics to the theme. I cannot see a body tag in any of your templates ahead of which to place google’s javascript
    Thank you

  46. Ben says:

    Great theme, had a few issues getting the Gravatars working in WordPress 2.5.1 using the code above, the version check wasn’t working and the extra tag before had to be removed.

  47. Alex says:

    i want add in this template for all category the description !!
    Explain me please to add it …

    tnk u

  48. Andrew says:

    I’ve been using this on my site for the past few months and love it

  49. Jai says:

    @Andre:- For the comments to display on your page, just open page.php file and add this code where ever you want to show the comments. :-

    < ?php comments_popup_link('Leave a Comment', '1 Comment', '% Comments'); ?>

  50. Andre says:

    @Andre:- ah, i already found (in the forum) how to enable comments on posts. thanks again!

  51. Andre says:

    @Jai:- Sorry, i’d like to say “page comments”, not “page posts”.
    And a lot of thanks for the help!

  52. Jai says:

    @Andre:- What do you mean by page posts ?

    And for Gravatar support to the theme, open up comments.php from the theme folder and find this line :-

    < ?php comment_text() ?>

    Replace this with the following code :-

    < ?php
    if (get_bloginfo('version')>=2.5)
    { echo get_avatar( $comment->comment_author_email, $size = '50', $comment->comment_author_link); }
    < ?php comment_text() ?>

    Now, add the following code to your style.css file :-

    .gravs {margin-top:20px;}
    .avatar {float:left; margin-right:5px; margin-bottom:5px; padding:3px; border:1px solid #999999;}

    Voila! You got gravatars :)

  53. Andre says:

    Great work on the theme!
    But i’d apreciate some help: is there a way to enable page posts? and gravatar?
    Both are enabled on wordpress configuration, but they don’t work properly with the theme.

  54. mimi says:

    @Steven – lol, you’re right! When I just added one widget it looked like it blew the whole design of the sidebar… but it actually works :o)

  55. Steven says:


    Does the theme add anything except what is possible with the widgets? I just built sidebar 2 with what was available… see http://www.tidplus.net

  56. mimi says:

    @Jai – Bummer! I thought it was possible to combine them (like… the widget above and then the theme sidebar beneath). But thanks for the quick reply.

  57. Jai says:

    @mimi – That’s because the widgets override the default content in the sidebar. So either you can keep the default content or use widgets to reproduce your sidebars as you want.

  58. mimi says:

    When I put a widget on sidebar 2 as you say (e.g. calendar), the complete sidebar of the theme is erased and only the widget stays…
    Any ideas?


  59. ashwin says:

    @ JOSH

    To put widgets on your website what you have to do is select sidebar 2 instead of sidebar 1. On the widgets page, on the right side, you will see drop-down box with sidebar 1 selected.Change it to sidebar 2!! Thats it!!

  60. Joss says:


    I’ve just installed your silver light theme with WordPress 2.5.1 but the native wordpress widgets are not working displaying. I can’t change the sidebar. If this a known ‘feature’ of this theme?

    Thank you


  61. Steven says:

    Thanks for this! A nice clean theme with room to experiment – just what I was looking for!

  62. ashwin says:

    This is a really good theme, but i had like to know if it is possible to have a header image instead of just text?

  63. Thanks for this theme. I installed it yesterday and it looks really good. I made some small changes to it like enabling hCard, xFolk and hAtom. Maybe I will also add a custom header.

  64. Delio says:

    I’ve installed this theme on my blog and I modified some things, now he got 3 columns and other minor changes.

    Nice work!

  65. Tudor says:

    Very nice theme. I was able to add a sidebar, change the sidebar position and use 2 different sidebars depending on the template without any prior knowledge of PHPor CSS. For the record, I do have limited programming experience. I’ve just used google on the wordpress documentation and then was just trial and error. If any of you guys need help, just le me know and I can share with you the modifications that I made on the theme. Also if the theme author wants I can send the modified theme to his inbox. For the modified theme just take a look at my website.

  66. jay says:

    Hey Bob,
    very nice theme! Anyone knows how to make pictures visible when going to categories? They aren’t displayed there.

  67. otto says:

    Thanks, Bob, I’m very happy to find this theme. I run a blog part of my website on your theme.

    There’s only one thing I need your help.
    There’s no “Previous Article” and “Next Article” showing on posts although it looks like those links exist in index.php. Since I know nothing about php, I cannot find a way to show those “Previous”, “Next” links…

    This situation was same on your test run available on your page.

    Hope you can help…


  68. PleX says:

    Love this theme, I’m using a modified version of it on my site, thanks for the awesome theme :)

  69. Steve says:

    Really like the Theme. Works well with IE6 and IE7 and Firefox.
    One question is how to take out the time in the posts. I just want to display the date when I create a new post.



  70. pigduck says:

    hi, you know how the space is so wide in the right sidebar – is it possible to fit two 120X600 ads next to each other? Please help…

    I don’t want a third column per say – i just want to fit two ads side by side and keep everything else as is…

    thanks in advance

  71. Snafzg says:

    Awesome theme! One quick question:

    Is there a way for me to enable commenting any new page I create that shows up along the top nav bar? Here’s a sample page that I can’t seem to enable comments on, even though I checked both boxes in the discussion tab in the page-edit window.


    Comments are enabled across my entire site, so this is kind of weird. I’m guessing I need to somehow edit the template?

  72. Brendan says:

    Whoops, sorry, Jai. But BOB is a good name anyway.

  73. Brendan says:

    Thanks Bob for this theme. I am using it over at brendan-brewster.com. It has good clean lines and a no-nonsense layout.

  74. Jai says:

    @Keith: Please edit the header.php for this.

  75. Keith says:

    By default, the theme seems to put links to all of the pages at the top. How can I make it not put a link up there for a specific page that I don’t want up there?

  76. Stéphane says:

    Thanks to you!

    It’s a very good theme, simple and pretty.

    I don’t know why the right sidebar gets on the bottom of the page. But it’s a problem with others wordpress’ themes, I guess.

    Have you a paypal account for a (very symbolic) contribution to your work?

    Please let me know!


  77. Bob says:

    pnomsin @
    tags is enabled. if from themes.wordpress.net the files is not update yet.

  78. pnomsin says:

    I updated to wordpress 2.3
    I want to show the related topics and tag cloud. I already uploaded plugin.
    I included tags in new posts.
    But the tags do not show up.
    Tell me how can I modify your theme.

  79. Dan says:

    Love this theme and the new blog oh blog theme.
    I have two questions (;
    1. can I change the sizes of the columns in the blog oh blog theme?
    2. How can I do I put my own header image in. I have been messing around and replaced the header image that came with the theme but my image doesn’t show up.

  80. Rolando says:

    Thanks for the theme! Works well on WP 2.3. I just added a few things like a comments feed, permalinks link, and other post meta information on the single page, which I used on my other themes.

  81. Albert says:

    Will this theme still work with the latest release of WordPress 2.3?

  82. Reez says:

    Would love to see this with 3 column .. will ya?

  83. Albert says:

    Love the theme. I have just one question: Some of my readers like to subscribe to the comments feed of a particular post, where is the link for that? If it there isn’t one, is it easy to add?

    Sorry, I guess that was two questions.

  84. Jay says:

    Hi, this is a great theme, but I was wondering how to change the links in the “Meta” part in the sidebar. Please let me know the answer, thank you!

  85. iCalvyn says:

    this theme will be more prefect if there is 3 column…i personally like it if there have 3 column…simple and nice

  86. I’m trying to use this template with 3 main pages and 10 subpages to each main page.

    Problem is that subpages also appear in the topmenu. See http://www.lokalguide.dk for explanation. Is there any way to change this?

    Excellent work by the way. Just love the designs.


  87. marcus says:

    Hello and good job,
    just wanted to tell you that i loved the theme when i’ve seen it on wordpress theme viewer, i’ve modified it to liquid (percentage) interface and also tweaked a bit on the semantics and removed some code from it (too many un-necesary divs), even transformed into xhtml 1 strict… i find it most suitable for a series of web tutorials for beginer web designers, it looks quite like a wiki interface :)

    Excellent job there, up with it :)

  88. admin says:

    Aaron@ may i know your wordpress version?

  89. Aaron says:

    I keep getting a fatal error when using this theme.

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function: the_search_query() in /www/www/wp-content/themes/silver-light-01/searchform.php on line 2

    Let me know if there’s a fix.


  90. Paul says:

    Nice theme. Yes will be this theme too.
