[SOLVED] Trying to return to Atahualpa - subscription links and padding

Due to a contractual experiment, I had to move my blog to the iNove theme. Big mistake. I found it so extremely "thin", that I must find a way to return to Atahualpa.

I have to keep my site looking as close as possible to the way it is now. You can see it at arielsilverstone.com . And I think I am 95% of the way there. I only have 2-3 open items, and was hoping someone can help me.

So here are the items:

1) I need to create a subscription link set (rss/twitter/email) at the top of the sidebar. Actually, what I would love is to have something similar to the default 'hualpa set that appears as part of the header (a set that I have to disable). I could not find a way to do it so far. BFA_ does the items one UNDER the other, and I am afraid to play with that widget.

2) the part of my site that is the padding (or actually the 17% or so of the page) that shows as red/black , shows up as red/black/white in 'hualpa. I use the very same background png as I use with iNove, but the results are greatly different.

Thank you!

The URL is above: arielsilverstone.com

WP is 2.8.4, Hoopla is 3.4.1

I did not try the text, because I thought/think there might be a theme tweak for that. I did look at widgets, and yet to find one that's perfect. I prefer not to add any to my 25+ roster, if possible.

Right, because I am showing what I *want* to have done, not what is.

Item #1 above is now closed. I found a plugin that would support it. I still think it can be done natively.

Item #2 is still open:

"2) the part of my site that is the padding (or actually the 17% or so of the page) that shows as red/black , shows up as red/black/white in 'hualpa. I use the very same background png as I use with iNove, but the results are greatly different."

How can I see the problem if you are using a different theme?

Ok.....

In the beta, the one I want using haulpa that I to return to, it is "background:transparent url(http://arielsilverstone.com/wp-conte.../ariel_bkd.png) repeat-x scroll center top;"

and in the current www it is "background:transparent url(img/ariel_bkd.png) no-repeat scroll center top;

same png, same transparent, same scroll/center/top. The only diff is the repeat-x vs. the no-repeat. In Haulpa, no-repeat makes the png show up mid screen and only once.


What am I missing?

what's the difference between the backgrounds??? discovering the answer yourself is much better than having it handed to you, don't you agree

The solution was that in Atahualpa, the background was set to be transparent (showing white underneath) while in the other theme, it was set to grey.
