I used your templete to make this blog for my father. I like your templete clean cut and very flexible to modify. I will try to use it more like content management. My father have quite a bit of published articles to upload[Chinese]. So far, it work out very good. I haven’t fully test it yet. Hope it will work fine in firefox and Chinese article upload.

You forgot to include the Email RSS icon png file into your templete image folder.

Good work!

Eric on Jan 21, 2008, 11:55 am  

Andy T, thanks for your kind support!

Andy T on Jan 21, 2008, 1:14 pm  

You miss to include a plun-in in the above plug-in list:
wp-gbcf[contact form], which from http://green-beast.com or http;//blue-anvil.com

David Cowgill on Jan 21, 2008, 4:28 pm  

Hi Andy T, the email and rss icons are both hosted on feedburner or photobucket so they aren’t included in the download .zip file. They should automatically be there for you once you install the theme. If you have problems, you can just download them directly and change your link within your theme.




Andy T on Jan 21, 2008, 7:20 pm  

I saw the icon when I install the theme. However, the mail feed service is from feedburner.com, the icon served by photobucket.com. It make me uncomfortable. If something go wrong, you don’t know the feedburner.com go down or the image server from photobucket.com go down or my server go wrong. Unless photobucket.com = feednurner.com, under the same server.

If I’m wrong, please execuse me! I’m new on blog theme.

Peter on Mar 19, 2008, 8:57 am  

I already install this themes but it shown me error message like this

“Fatal error: Call to undefined function: akpc_most_popular() in /home/acadamy/public_html/viewdental/wp-content/themes/AdsTheme/sidebar.php on line 18”

How do I do???

David on Mar 19, 2008, 9:43 am  

Peter, you need to download the Popularity Contest plugin and install it. The Ads Theme requires it.

Peter on Mar 20, 2008, 4:38 am  

Thank you for your suggestion, David 😆

sunga on May 16, 2008, 6:16 am  

My ads theme is not displaying correctly at http://www.sunganani.com What did I miss?

David on May 18, 2008, 5:39 am  

@sunga, I’m not sure. I just tried looking at your site and it’s got a different template. You might want to setup a brand new test Blogger blog and install it there first.

GuadagnoBlog on Jul 23, 2008, 11:09 am  

What can I do for change the img AdsTheme ecc. on the top of the blog?

Andy T on Aug 31, 2008, 6:01 pm  

I upgraded to WordPress 2.61, the Ads Theme still work fine to me, except Top Commentators plug-in. I will try to install a more update version and see.

masterbisnis on Sep 22, 2008, 6:59 pm

“Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.”

mrpopsalot on Oct 10, 2008, 8:10 am  

Do we need to build our own SQL with the template? I want to ensure i don’t accidentally install before making sure i have everything ready beforehand 🙂 Thanks!

LC on Nov 7, 2008, 5:42 pm  

What do you put for line 51 if for wordpress – we have no MyBlogLog ID, so what should be there?

enrico on Nov 22, 2008, 1:04 am  

the zip file is corropted

Agent 001 on Jan 3, 2009, 8:52 pm  

Will this theme work with wordpress 2.7.

David on Jan 6, 2009, 12:31 am  

Yes, it should work with 2.7 but you might have to modify it for the paged comments feature to work. Check with the author’s site and see if he has any upgrade instructions.

mj on Jan 9, 2009, 11:00 am  

download link is dead?

pittsburghseo on Mar 10, 2009, 4:52 am  

Was the corrupted file ever fixed or is this what we need to modify?

Patrick Nelson on Mar 17, 2009, 4:45 pm

Супер! Все очень толково и грамотно, и в то же время без умствований и самолюбования, и на доступном языке. Редкий случай когда человек делится актуальной и востребованной инфой. Спасибо автору!
