    I liked this theme so much I decided to re-vamp my WordPress-powered site around it last week. I don’t think my amateur header graphic does your layout design justice, but I just wanted to say I truly appreciate the gift!

    I have found a couple of issues – on the highlight-box, if you have a link in there, the colour of the text is the same as the box itself, so you can’t see the link!

    Secondly, on the main page, it doesn’t show the page numbers on a post when you use the <!-- nextpage --> tag. This means that unless someone clicks to go into the post, they probably won’t know the post is spread over multiple pages!!

    Hope these help. :)

    Sweet looking theme. Couple things I noticed while poking around:

    – fonts in the comment entry box are a little odd (maybe this is just de gustibus)

    – When you click on the # of comments link (if you’re on the main page), it doesn’t automatically scroll the page down to where the comments begin.

    Fantastic theme, though. Keep up the good work.

    I’m glad I thought of moving to WordPress (from http://gloriamundi.blogsome.com) just in time to find Vigilance. As I’m not css-savvy, the flexibility of your code gave me the chance to test different configurations until find a satisfactory layout.

    My only objection would be the basic box not being a bit wider, so the two side bar columns will look less cramped.

    But all in all I feel I’ll got a great time blogging with your design.

    Thank you!

    Thanks Bill!

    Not sure what you mean by the fonts looking odd, they are supposed to be serif if that is what you mean? You are spot on with the comments jumping bug. We have added it to the list for 1.24.

    Sorry…saw the support forums info after I hit submit on my last comment.

    However, I can’t be see the support discussions unless I am a member, and I don’t want to pay to become a member if I’m not going to use this theme, which is in (small) part a consideration in that decision. So, rather than a support answer, can I get a simple yes or no to my question: is there a way to add a time stamp to posts?

    Thanks,
    Valerie

    I really love what you have done here!

    I want to revamp my blog with Vigilance, but it’s a WordPress.com hosted blog. Is the Pro membership helpful for me? Or is it particularly useful for those running their own installation?

    Thanks,

    Maria

  8. Drew Strojny

    Good question Maria!

    If you are looking for support and someone to answer any questions you might have about the theme and making CSS customizations then the membership would be worth it.

    If you are looking for add-ons it wouldn’t make sense because the members only add-ons will not work with WordPress.com. They require a self-hosted WordPress.org installation.

    Hope that helps!
