Setting up my blog.. new theme & plugins

I’ve installed a couple of plugins to improve my blog a bit and I also uploaded a new theme.

The new theme – Misty Look Theme
The theme used on this blog is called Misty Look, you can download it at WordPress Themes by Sadish. I’ve seen this theme on a couple of other blogs and I’ve decided to use it too because I like the design ๐Ÿ™‚

I also installed a bunch of plugins:
The MyBlogLog widget so you can see who visits this site, along with the MyAvatars plugin to add the MyBlogLog avatars to the WordPress comments. The default WordPress comment style kinda sucks so I also decided to install Brian’s Threaded Comments plugin.

In Firefox everything looked alright but in Internet Explorer on some pages the sidebar appeared on the bottom of the page instead of on the right so I had to make some code changes to fix this problem ๐Ÿ™‚

To improve the user experience I also added some new smileys and used the WP Grins plugin to add clickable smilies in comment post section. Here’s a look at all the smileys:

Now it’s time to get back to work.

ย Update: I’ve decided to disable the MyAvatars plugin. After some testing it turned out that it didn’t work as it should be. I think there’s a conflict between the MyAvatars plugin and the Brian’s Threaded Comments and/or Misty theme but I can’t really find the problem so for now I’m just going to disable it.
