    I just switched to Coraline, and have a strange problem with the appearance. No matter what layout I choose, the widgets in the sidebars (and yes, I’ve put things in each widget area), the sidebars are blank on the main page. If you select an individual post or category, the sidebars are there just fine.

    How do I get the sidebars to show content on the main page?

    The blog I need help with is white-pebble.net.

    And no, I’m not using custom css or custom background image.

    Hi whitepebble, I think it might have been something to do with your Theme Options. You had chosen a category for posts with galleries, but one of the posts in that category (http://white-pebble.net/2010/08/01/peter-betsy-2/) didn’t have a gallery, so it caused an error.

    I changed the option back to normal to fix the issue.

    Thanks Lance, but I’m still having the same problem with the opening page. I even deleted the post with the problem picture. I am also not getting the usual WP top menubar that appears at the top page when I’m logged in to WP. I’ve also looked at it with different browsers (Safari is main, also tried chrome and firefox — still get same strangeness).

    Let me know if there’s anything else I can try.

    Thanks!

    More strangeness… switched my other blog (http://meandshakespeare.wordpress.com/) to Coraline, and it looks fine.

    @whitepebble We’ve fixed the issue, and I re-activated your “photographs” category, which should work correctly now as the “Gallery” category. Let us know if you see any other issues.

    My blog has switched to coraline without my permission. I’ve lost all my widgits and my site looks terrible. Any idea what is going on?

    I liked the idea of a 3 column layout, however now my custom header only spans two columns, the left and middle. I don’t want to stretch it and I can’t really make it longer without some art intervention. Is there a way to center it?

    What’s going on is that the Cutline theme has been replaced by the Coraline theme. http://en.blog.wordpress.com/2010/08/09/new-theme-coraline/

    If you do have the CSS upgrade then please visit this sticky post at the head of the forum > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/use-custom-css-and-cutline-please-test-your-site?replies=63

    If you do Not have the CSS upgrade then please visit this sticky post at the head of the forum > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/cutline-to-coraline-faqs?replies=10

    Hope this helps.

    I see exactly what you mean. Your blog requires Staff intervention. Please post into this sticky thread at the head of the forum > https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/cutline-to-coraline-faqs?replies=10

    @timethief That isn’t a bug. Just needs a larger image. :)

    @machetera Your image isn’t wide enough to span the three columns. You can replace it (via Appearance > Header) with an image that is 990 x 180 pixels if you would like it to be across all three columns.

    @jomaj — Go to Appearance > Theme Options, and look “Aside Category” and “Gallery Category” and change both to the top-most option (“Select a category…”).

    Those two options give special display values to posts in those categories, which in the case of Asides removes the title of the post.

    Hello,
    I’ve just switched to Coraline Theme and for the most part I’m quite happy. However, it doesn’t seem to handle tables properly,

    Firstly, they seem to expand width-wise, so much so that they spill over into the side-bar. It doesn’t obey the width attribute.

    Secondly, when using the visual editor with a table that contain images, those images expand to their full size (as uploaded), rather than obeying the width and height attributes specified for the images. The result is an astronomically large table (4000 pixels wide, but only in the editor.)

    Ok, i figured out how to drag the wdigets back over, but now I have a big problem.

    I accidentally dragged a widget from INACTIVE to AVAILABLE, thus erasing all its data.

    How can I recover this widget?

    I don’t believe that you can.
