Silver Lexus Theme

Subtle and classy, just like the car! It might appear to be a little light, but we’ve always been a fan of subtle drop-shadows, and light grays. Picture yourself in a futuristic asylum for futuristic lunatics. That is the Silver Lexus Theme. We’ve also added a dash of orange, just to keep things sane.

    The Silver Lexus theme is a beautiful design.

    I noticed that if I went to a page with the Social bookmarks that my page would get XHTML validation warnings. If you have a post title with a space then this will cause validation warnings. I changed the Delicious anchor as an example and it validates without errors or warnings:

    &url=&” title=”Submit to del.icio.us” rel=”nofollow”>del.icio


    &url=” title=”Submit to del.icio.us” rel=”nofollow”>delicious

    My previous post lost the HTML I submitted.

    Briefly I use the “urlencode” function to deal with the spaces in the title.

    Hi ! thanks for a very nice theme !

    Just one question … I’d like to change the color of those orange broken lines that separates each link in the columns, and I can’t find the code for that. Could you tell me ?

    Ho, and it seems that nothing in would appear …

    I need help with post images, so far a solution has eluded me.

    This post is an example.

    The “W” and “H” parameters are entered correctly and the css to call the drop shadow is correct. (it works on another blog)

    This is the code (example only) the makes the call in a post with an image…

    If possible can you discover why this problem occurs?

    Arrrg… I should have known the code would be stripped out. If you need the code I can send it via email.

    Awesome theme. My only 2 issues is that I can’t figure out how to fix the left sidebar in ie 6. It starts 2/3’s of the way down the page. I also can’t get the footer to appear in both ie 6 or 7. It all looks great in firefox.

    Hi Guys,

    I’m wondering if you can help. I have a FeedBurner account and they offer a FeedFlare service which provides more indepth stats but it involves pasting a snippet of code as follows (starting at instruction #4):

    4. Click Main Index Template in the list of template files. Its contents load in the editor. (For WordPress 1.5: “Main Template”)

    5. Paste the code you copied in step 1 just above the line . If you don’t see this code, don’t panic! Just paste the code near the post metadata (author, date, comments, etc) or contact us for help.

    6. Click Update File » to save your changes. View your blog’s home page; you should now see the Flare item(s) you chose at FeedBurner appear beneath every post.

    7. If you also want to have Flare appear on each post’s archive page (recommended), click the Single Post in the list of template files. (WordPress 1.5: “Single Post Template”)

    8. Once again, paste the code from step 2, this time just above .

    9. Click Update File » to save your changes. View any blog item’s individual archive page (the permalink page) to see what you’ve done.

    Of course the problem I have is that the lines of code that they say to paste above are missing from the Silver Lexus template’s code. Can you advise where I should paste this code?

    I appreciate any help you can provide.

    Thanks for the wonderful theme. I have just put it on my web publishing site (http://www.chimp-simple.com) and love it. I’m going to adjust a few colors but that is it.

    Here are the changes to make to change the widget yellow color issues. In the styles.css look for these two entries:

    #column2 {float: left; position: relative; width: 205px; margin-left: -205px; font-size: 0.8em;}
    .container-left {margin-right: 30px; color: #ffc; }

    #column3 {float: right; position: relative; width: 182px; margin-right: -182px; font-size: 0.8em;}
    .container-right {margin-left: 25px; color: #ffc;}

    Change the ffc color to another color otherwise the font will be yellow. Try 000 for black or fff for white.

    10x for this theme. I was very happy when found it. The most beateful in it, that it has “rabber” middle part. It’s really great.

    But I discovered some bug in it. When I put some widgets instead of default, some of them break from layout (became wider, then left or right column). May be reason is, that I use russian (Cyrillic) localisation of this theme, downloaded from here:

    Anyway, thanx a lot.

    I love the theme, looks fantastic, however, i have one problem….

    There seems to be a bug in the css, when i open this theme under ie7 and hover over a link in the left or right columns, the left column jumps right about 300 pixels or so, and the blog entries on the page disapear…

    Any ideas for this one?

    Great work! This theme is exactly what I’m looking for (3 columns, widget ready and wide text area) :)

    But I have 2 problems:
    1. The topic of the “Calendar” is missing
    2. In the “Recent comments” all the text without a link becomes white (same problem appears in my “Countdown Timer”

    I tried to change the colors in the style sheet, but it just doesn’t work, please help!

    Hello folks

    I am testing the lexus them at my site and i really like it. However, I am wanting to customize the Link and Category Widgets. I want to modify both the order of the categories to suit my needs, as well as how much the child categories get indented.

    Is there a way to do this with the widgets that come with the theme?

  27. 27 On August 11th, 2007, Tim Carr said:

    By the way I love your web site.

    Also, I want that BIG ASS RSS BUTTON to come in a few shades of blue, and I suck at graphics. Did you guys make this button yourself, and if so, how would you feel about making me a button like this that is a cool shade of blue???

    I am new to WordPress and have been working on a site ( http://www.goldcoastsurf.com.au/ ) using a great theme( http://www.highlandsbydesign.com/theme/silver-lexus-theme/ ) that I have modified a bit.
    I used the instructions from this post ( http://wordpress.org/support/topic/21382?replies=9 ) to remove comments but Im almost certain this is not the problem
    The problem I’m having is that it doesnt display properly in IE5, IE5.5 and IE6 . See screenshots here
    and here browsershots.org/…north-shore/
    If you check the screenshots you’ll notice that the right sidebar has dropped but also the icons in the Archive an categories lists/ navigation in the left siebar have appearred twice an or the link is below where vit should be
    Now I know there are 100’s of posts in the forum on this subject and Ive read most of them but I still cant seem to find the problem.
    Most of the posts have the same answer do a search for “sidebar dropped”
    And I realise it has something to do with the widths but I have change everything I can think of and its still no good
    Is there anyone out there who could take a look at it for me an let me know what to look for??
    I know the fix is probably right under my nose. but Im at my wits end an just about ready to abandon it completely Any help greatly appreciate

    Love the theme! It is by far the best one I have seen so far.

    I have only experienced one problem and needed some help. I am trying to modify the sidebars and have tried the Sidebar Widget by Automattic. Everyone that I know raves about the widget, but when I modify the sidebars from default I have an extra “sun.gif” and it shifts the sidebar into the body. Any ideas?

    Thank you so much for the theme and help!
