Big Amazing Grace/Blue Grace Themes Update

Thank everyone for voting on the sidebar poll for Amazing Grace enhancements you would like to see.

It looks that most people wanted New Features and Cleaner HTML so I got busy and produced the update to both themes.

Child Themes

Blue Grace now behaves as a child theme for Amazing Grace. That means that both themes share the same code and only have different styling and images.

This will make it much easier to maintain, and you get two themes in one package.

Cleaner Code

I swept the code and removed unnecessary code, made optimizations and made it generally easier to read and change.

Optimized Images

I redid images, optimized them for size and removed the unused ones.

Full WP2.7 Support

Even before WP2.7 is out, both Amazing Grace and Blue Grace are enhanced to support all 2.7 goodies like sticky posts,  nested comments and paging.

The new theme can be downloaded from the link below only, I will update the theme pages once the initial testing period is over.

    thanks for the wordpress theme, looks good and was easy to change. After a few weeks the header went a bit "wobbling", the logo shifted to right and the sometimes rthe depth of header area increases. Is their any simply solution
    Many thanks for your help

      This kind of things naturally don't happen by them selves. Undoing your recent changes to theme/plugins setup should help you fix it.

    I am having the same problem as Irene Dorang. I don't see anywhere that I used the "more" tag however and am not sure how to correct this problem. Can anyone help?

    Never mind my last post about the sidebars being pushed below the content on the main page for the Amazing Grace theme, I figured out it was because I used the 'more' tag on a post. When I removed the more tag the sidebars popped up in the right hand column again.

    Again, thanks for this great theme!

    Hi Vladimir, I love this theme - its simple and beautiful at the same time, and my pages are popping up in search engine results quickly.

    One problem just came up tonight in both Firefox and IE, on the home page the sidebars are now below the main column. This only happens on the home page view, not individual posts, categories, etc.

    I updated all my plugins, had not added any new ones in months, I think I have the latest version of the theme, did not change fonts, etc. I'm using WP 2.7.1 but it was showing fine before - basically, I have not changed anything except I was starting a draft post with a Youtube video of 480 width, did not post it and since then have deleted the draft, problem still occurs.

    Can you tell me what I should do? Thanks, I'd really appreciate the help.

    I have a new WP install and installed your Amazing Grace theme. How do I toggle between Amazing Grace and Blue Grace?

    Also, I added 6 more categories and they do not show up. What am I doing wrong?

      I had the same problem... in the themes admin page, it said it was a problem with the blue. The problem was that I upgraded the theme from previous version, and the name of the folder was AmazingGrace, and shouldn't have any capital letters, so, I renamed to amazinggrace and now it works. :)

      Excellent theme, thx!

    TIP: Try downloading the latest version available from my site

    I really call the amazing grace theme, but when I activate it, the right sidebar gets pushed under the left siderbar...I tried removing widgets from it change. When I try Bluegrace, it seems to work fine, but needed the color of amazing grace..Can you suggest what is the easiest wat to change header background color ONLY.
    Thanks for the great themes. I really like the double navigation in the header (page and category based). Very cool.
    Thanks in advance.

    I've recently loaded Amazing Grace and really like the theme. I'm having a problem though as both side bars will not show. The right side bar presents under the left with a large space on the right. Any thoughts?
