    Hey there, thanks for the awesome template! It’s very clean and smooth. However, is there a way to make it display more than just one post? I would like it to display two or three of the latest posts instead of just one. I have no idea on how to do it, so if you could help me out, it would be totally awesome! thanks!.

  2. Nathan says:

    Michael – Here’s how you fix that problem:
    1. Open the index.php file
    2. Go to line 13 in index.php
    3. Line 13 should have the following code:


    4. Delete that line.
    That should do it!

    Excellent template Nathan! Amazing color combinations! I like the font that used in your template logo “Ambient Glow”. I have tried with so many different fonts but not getting the same look and feel.
    I would appreciate if you let me know what font is used for creating the logo.

    Hi Nathan! Great work with this updated version – my problems were finally solved in IE6 after upgrading! Thanx for your effort!
    I just have one little issue – after updating to this version, my latest post has disappeared and it wasn’t on the main page on top of the older posts. Also, when I write a new post I cannot see it if it is in a certain category (which was normally visible in old version). Any help is much apreciated!

    @ Darco – Thanks for the heads up on the bug. It is fixed now, so go ahead and re-download the ZIP file.

    Nathan, thank you for the quick response – the theme is now working perfectly! Wish you all the best in your future projects!

  7. Hi Nathan,

    Is there any way to make the comments appear in the same page below the post instead of a link.

    Thank You for you help.

    Best Rgds,

  8. I love your theme-thank you for it! I’m especially happy for the fluid version.

    Is there a way to always include the same image automatically in only the first post? It’s a way I’m thinking of including the photographic portion of my logo, and don’t want to do it manually every time.

    Thanks again, you’re wonderful!

  9. Many people have contacted me asking how to replace the Ambient Glo logo with their site’s name. Even though there are instructions in the included Readme file, I’ll post the instructions here as well.

    1. Open header.php
    2. find the following code:


    3. replace that code with this code


    That’s it!

  10. Thanks very much . It look great.

    I am using your theme and I love it.
    How can I remove the 2 empty lines seen in the sidebar under Pages?

  12. @ Dr. SciFi – looks like you are using widgets, am I correct?
    Somehow it looks like you’re adding an extra “ul” tag. That’s why there are those extra spaces.
    If you need more assistance, e-mail me and I’ll be happy to help you out.

    hi, this is sweet, Why tags are not showing on each post? How do I fix this?


  14. toni says:

    me again, i just came with this idea, i’d like to ad some background color fill for each post, so you can easily difference each post at first sight, i drew this on photoshop, i hope it explains what i mean. thxs

  15. ameljor says:

    I have been doing a lot of reading on ‘h1’ tags for post headings, and the ambient glo theme is using ‘h2’. Is there any way of changing this? I have tried various ways and nothing seems to work. Also, do you think this is important and should they be changed? It can be a contradictory subject.

  16. Mark Evans says:


    This is a really great theme. I’ve been looking for a split three-column theme for awhile so it was a good day when Ambient Glo came along. I’ll definitely be making a donation.


  17. Dan says:

    Hi Nathan, How can I make this theme allow comments on pages? Thanks in advance!

  18. Dan says:

    Nathan, I figured it out. I added:

    to page.php

    Thanks for a great theme!

    Whoops, the code didn’t come through in the comment… I added:

    Hi there,

    thanks for building up such a nice template i like it much and use it in some blogs.

    Is there a chance to display full posts by choosing the archive pages instead of the shortened version?

    I gess surfers would apreciate to tee the full post to scroll trough in the archive pages as well.

    Thanks for help.

    Once I replace the code to change the header, what do I do next?
