Stevish 2 Final!!! finally…

It’s official! The Stevish 2 Final theme (for WordPress 1.5) (screenshot) is avaliable for download. There is a ton of new features jam packed into this one little theme, but instead of telling you about all of them, I’ll just tell you the one I’m the happiest about: WORKING TRANSPARENT BACKGROUNDS IN INTERNET EXPLORER!!!. It took me two full days of frustrating research and php nightmares, but I finally found a way to get it to work while maintaining a site with valid CSS and XHTML.

As usual, I can’t take all the credit for this milestone success (as I see it). I have to thank :mrgreen: once again for all his ideas and guidance. It was while on the phone with him that I discovered how to finally get the IE transparency working perfectly. So thanks again, :mrgreen:. I also have to thank A List Apart for the coding help. The page in that link is a great resource for info on how to make PNG files transparent in IE. Getting your code to validate however, is a whole ‘nother animal, which I will post about in the near future.

I best be off now. My little brother and I are going to rent Fat Albert. Have fun!

    Good job!

    I am loving the new background. It is so airy, like fresh laundry or a summer rain….serenely obscure yet poetically certain.

    I love this theme, but I’m having a strange problem adapting it. I’ve created a new “centerbg.gif” file and uploaded it to the image directory, but when I activate the theme, I still see YOUR centerbg.

    Any idea how that could be happening — or even possible?!?

    Never mind. I’m an idiot.

    In IE, any idea why there is no slider bar to drag up and down when the window is minimized? The window must be a minimum size before the slider bar appears.

    AlphaOmega Theme

    I’ve changed the default theme, the background graphics, to AlphaOmega (adapted from Stevish 2 almost as-is).
    If you prefer the older Blue Swirly theme (or you *still* see the Blue Swirly theme and want to see the AlphaOmega theme), there&#82…
