    Very nice theme.

    One question about the dual licensing structure (php files are GPL, others are licensed to Design to WP): am I permitted to modify the stylesheets to customize the colors, swap images, etc., or do I need to request permission from you before doing so?

    Feel free to customize the stylesheet and images. :)

    I really like this theme, thanks for making it available…!

    There seems to be a bug in the control panel, the twitter username isn’t saved so the twitter widget does not function

    Can you please let me know details of your browser and what happens when you press the save button or add widget to the sidebar?

    What is the size of the logo? I want to create my own but cannot seem to figure out the size.

    Thank you for the really cool theme! I went live with it on my site last night and I’m really happy with it!

    @Robin You can upload any size of logo form the theme control panel located in WP Admin -> Appearance -> Control Panel and then the customize tab

    @Haris I’m using Safari Version 4.0.3 (4531.9) on OSX 10.4.11

    When I enter the twitter id and hit save, the id stays in the field as long as I stay in the control panel, if I navigate out of the control panel the entry in the fields reverts to the name of the blog.

    Some times the widget shows on the site with the twitter id in the widget heading but no tweets are shown (it’s set to 3).
