    Hi Folks!

    I’m off for a drive – heading out to a place in Western Qld (Australia) for a few days R&R… Been a bit sick, so well needed rest.. If you have any issues with the new release of BlixKrieg, please post here and I (or another user) will help you sort it out ASAP – so far, so good, no complaints from over 1000 downloads of BlixKrieg, and 200 of the WP 2.1 enabled – good luck!

    I found that your use of the new wp_list_bookmarks function to display the links did not format the title properly. The link icon showed on the side of the title

    I could not figure out how to use the function properly, so I returned to the older get_links(‘-1’, ”, ”, ”, 0, ‘name’, 0, 0, -1, 0). If you know how to call wp_list_bookmarks without displaying the title, so I can display the title as before, let me know!

    Thanks for the fixed theme for the upgrade to 2.1. I am not using Adsense, but am considering it now that I have a compatible theme.

    HI Zachary!

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Yes, I spent a few hours the other day trying to get wp_list_bookmarks working properly, and couldn’t manage to either – I tried heaps of different ways, but it just seemed impossible (as you say) to get the ‘links’ menu to appear without a bullet point next to it..

    I tried modifying the CSS – heaps of different ways – couldn’t do it. So, like you, I had reverted back to get_links (and this is what I’ve been using on this page since).

    THANKYOU for letting me know that I had accidentally released the preproduction version of my new code. You will find that if you download the theme again, I have corrected the problem 🙂

    Cheers and glad you are enjoying BlixKrieg!

    It seems that a minor bug I found and fixed in the original Blix theme
    still shows up in your version. Basically, in single-post view, sidebar.php calls with $p passed to $BX_get_recent_posts when $p is not defined anywhere. It wasn’t a problem for WordPress 1.5, but is a problem for 2.0 and 2.1.
