    Just incase you want to change, here is a wordpress theme browser:

    http://themes.wordpress.net/

    There are tons out there too, incase you want something besides the default.

    Same themes, different interface.

    Also, and I know that we shouldn't encourage this too much, there is a support forum for wordpress specifically which you may want to look over and perhaps post in. Not saying Omar won't help, but a few people have probably had similar issues as you are having...

    http://wordpress.org/support/

    If that is in violation of OSNN guidelines, linking to another forum, please forgive me and remove it.

    If you ever have any problems, that has the solution.

    You have to get a wordpress.com blog to get an API key for Akismet. Don't know why, but you have to. You can then use the key to use Akismet at kush.ca.

    For the plugins, which ones are you using? Some of them need you to add a bit of code to wordpress to make them work. So you can't just activate them and expect them to work.

    For the gravatar go to gravatar.com

    yeah i got the gravatar one to work i guess, it just has to wait until they approve of my pic, i found out that ill have to edit the sidebar.php to get any change i thought it would automatically put the comments, but i dont know how to do that, and also the posting comments on yours is nice how it scrolls up howd u do that one, can you post a comment on mine to see if the gravatar works? thanks a lot man

    For gravatars to work in the comments you need to get the gravatar plugin.

    http://wp-plugins.net

    For the "nice" comments the easiest way to do that would be to install K2, which is another theme. So you might have to start all over again.
