Mike Little, the author of this theme (Journalized), has released a WordPress 2.7-compliant version. Not only are widgets officially supported now (I had been using a self-hacked version), but tags, gravatars (which I will not be enabling) and threaded and paginated comments (which is coming with 2.7) are as well. Things should look only slightly different because I’m still using the Blue theme (I had been toying around with switching to Winter).
Naturally, I’ve done a wee bit of hacking. I had to put my randomized roll of bloat back in (the stock links widget is alphabetical with no way to change it), and make the search function stand out a bit more (the stock search widget is fugly, with no title).
Thanks, Mike. Glad to see you’re still alive.
