Hi Flynn,
Firstly, I love this theme!

Secondly where is the "donate" page - let me know so I can send a small "thankyou" to you.

At my new site www.myfacegraphics.com I want to create a list of links in the left sidebar.

I was going to manually add a link for every category and manually point it to each category. Then I say that other people simply have the categories showing in the left sidebar.

So that is what I ant to know - how to put the categories into the left sidebar.

Plus, are you available for custom work? Please email me or send me a PM.

Thanks
Shaun

Hi, and welcome. I'm a relative newcomer too, and I also love the theme and the support I get here.

Wordpress and Flynn make it really easy to do what you want. In your dashboard, just look over at the left under Appearance. Click on Widgets. In Widgets, up on the upper right, choose left or right sidebar. Look to your left and you'll see some pre-made widgets, including Categories. Click Add. Now click Edit, and choose how you want the categories shown. When satisfied, click Done. IMPORTANT: Now click Save Changes. That's it. You're done.

You can also use the Lists to make sidebar lists of links.

Visit http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ where you can find many plugins that can give you extra functionality. They don't all work well, or work well with this theme, but if you get a dud, just deactivate and/or delete it from your server.

I notice you have some stuff in your left sidebar now. I think anything with the % in it is supposed to go in the logo area, and you can make changes there using the Atahualpa Theme Options page.

Enjoy!

You're welcome, Shaun.

I've been doing HTML since Tim Berners-Lee was a pup, and I still get snagged with all this. It's a whole other way of thinking, really.
