    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?


  21. Gabe Anderson left a comment on August 24, 2009 at 7:26 am |

    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,

  25. ???? left a comment on June 11, 2009 at 7:00 am |

    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!

  34. Detoam left a comment on December 19, 2008 at 7:41 am |

    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?

  35. I-MAN left a comment on December 8, 2008 at 1:04 pm |

    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…

  50. Konc left a comment on July 18, 2008 at 3:25 am |

    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).

  51. Steven left a comment on July 15, 2008 at 3:16 am |


    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…

  56. Jai left a comment on June 26, 2008 at 4:13 pm |

    @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'); ?>

  57. Andre left a comment on June 26, 2008 at 4:12 pm |

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

  58. Andre left a comment on June 26, 2008 at 4:10 pm |

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

  59. Jai left a comment on June 26, 2008 at 2:59 pm |

    @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 🙂

  60. Andre left a comment on June 26, 2008 at 1:54 pm |

    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.

  61. mimi left a comment on June 24, 2008 at 11:51 am |

    @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)

  62. Steven left a comment on June 24, 2008 at 11:28 am |


    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

  63. mimi left a comment on June 24, 2008 at 11:25 am |

    @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.

  64. Jai left a comment on June 24, 2008 at 8:30 am |

    @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.

  65. mimi left a comment on June 24, 2008 at 7:57 am |

    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?


  66. ashwin left a comment on June 19, 2008 at 12:49 am |

    @ 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!!

  67. Joss left a comment on June 18, 2008 at 2:22 pm |


    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

    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.

    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…

    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

  78. Snafzg left a comment on January 8, 2008 at 9:53 pm |

    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?

  82. Keith left a comment on December 11, 2007 at 6:46 pm |

    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?

    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.

    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.

    Excellent work by the way. Just love the designs.

    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 🙂
