Once the theme is installed and active there will be a new item under the Appearance menu in the admin pages called ‘HD Settings’ which are the theme specific settings.
Checking any of the Header Links check boxes will make the nav items (Categories, Tags, Pages, Archives) in the headers links to /categories, /tags, /pages and /archives respectively. For each of these links to work properly a page, Archive Index for example, must be created and the template set. In order to set the template open the attributes section when editing a page and select the appropriate Index from the Template dropdown. The appropriate templates are called Category Index, Tag Index, Pages Index and Archives Index respectively. In order to have these pages not display in the pages menu after they are published their Visibility should be set to Private.
This theme was created prior to Wordpress 2.7 and so in order to highlight author comments the author id to highlight must be entered in the text field in this section. In order to help discover the appropriate author id the id of the currently logged in user is displayed underneath the text field.
This section contains the option to include sIFR on the page, if the checkbox is not checked sIFR will not be included. In addition to the optional include of sIFR there are also two ‘alternate path’ fields. These are useful if, for example, it is desirable to serve static resources from a different domain (or subdomain). Doing this also allows for using some sort of resource combining script, such as combine.php by rakaz or minify, to reduce the number of http requests.
This is a free form section, anything put into this text area will be be included last in the head element of the page. This is a good place to include site wide keywords or description or more custom scripts or CSS.
This theme is widget ready and has one sidebar. The sidebar is displayed at the bottom of the page as part of the footer.
