    I ve downloaded this theme and i am trying to get the german localization working. I mean the supplied *.po file works so far, The problem are the month and weekday translations. I ve edited the de_DE.po file with lines like this:

    msgid “October”
    msgstr “Oktober”

    msgid “November”
    msgstr “November”

    msgid “December”
    msgstr “Dezember”

    msgid “Monday”
    msgstr “Montag”

    msgid “Tuesday”
    msgstr “Dienstag”

    msgid “Wednesday”
    msgstr “Mittwoch”

    and created a new *.mo file, but this doesn’ t do it. January is January and not the german Januar and Tuesday shows up as Tuesday and not the german Dienstag. Is this a php problem and i have to edit the source code?

    Well… is this inspired by your theme or is your theme inspired by praegnanz.de?

    • Jauhari

      Januari 15, 2009 at 1:55pm

      Hi Jaivs, this is the first time I saw “praegnanz.de” and I am not inspired by that design. This is totally my original designer

    I made the Hungarian translation of Ayumi. It is a very nice theme.
    Thank you for a work.

    How can I send the translation for you?

    Hi Nurudin:

    I really like your theme. Will use it for another 6 months at the least. I noticed some small bugs. In footer.php, there is a missing closing span tag as follows:


    <a href=””>


    <a href=””>

    Thanks again,

    Very nice looking theme.

    However I cannot get the 404 page to display right. It displays too far right and not on the regular page.

    Hi Jauhari…!

    I love this layout and was hoping to switch to it, but there were a couple of problems I had…

    1) I cannot figure out how to switch the “About” text under the header image. I tried updating my profile information, but nothing happened.

    2) Is there any way to show the post author? I have a site with five writers, each with their own voice and things they write about, so it would be weird not to know who wrote what…

    3) Is there any way to add a header image randomizer? (This isn’t really a problem, just a curiosity!)

    Hello Jauhari,

    This is a great theme! I like the clean disposition of the menu bars. Great work!
    I’ve had no problem changing some of the characteristics of the theme- except for my lack of php code knowledge :P – but, I’ve been wondering about replacing the image with some code that would allow to load totating images randomly.
    I found some codes that should work, but I can’t figure out which to use and, most importantly, where to place it.
    I’ll be grateful for any kind of help.

    Hi Anne, it’s easy to do this, go to images folder and replaced you.jpg with your own images. And for the best fit, use image width and height some as my original.

  30. Anne

    Desember 28, 2007 at 10:24am

    This is lovely. Can you please tell me how I change the image to one of my own?

  31. Donate Pennies

    Desember 12, 2007 at 11:54am


    Thanks for responding, but I must apologize. I did change the RGB color code and saw that the outer green border did change, however that inner green border color was still there. Sometimes it’s best to just walk away from a problem and let the subconscious work on it for awhile because after I did that, I realized that the image I had put there had the same green border on it!

    Sorry to have bothered you with this:) Thanks again for a GREAT theme!

  32. Jauhari

    Desember 12, 2007 at 11:23am

    Hi DonatePennies

    For the best way to solve the problem, use any editor such as Notepad++ or TextMate and try to find and replace the color RBG code.

    Hi there,

    I have a question about this theme. I am editing the stylesheet to change many colors. The box border color around the “about” box on the top of the sidebars is driving me crazy. I have this CSS:

    #avatr {
    border: 1px solid #6C2D1B; /*#3AC52C;*/

    This changed the outside border color, but there seems to be an inner color defined somewhere that is still 3AC52C, but I can’t seem to find it.

    Could you please help? Thank you so much if you are able.

      Okay, if you using Standard version of WordPress, just activated Ayumi then go to your profile and edit the descriptions and save, after you doing that. The Description text will changed.

      If still have a problem, just let’s me know.

      Best Wishes.

    Dear Jauhari,

    Your template is wonderful! Thanks to you for realising this masterpiece!

    I just have a problem with the edition of the description’s text.


    What’s exactly the description text’s profile for you?

    I tried to edit via My Profile / edit but it doesn’t work, the description’s text remain the same…

    How can I manage it?

    Thanks a lot for this work!

      Did you using WordPress MU installation or using standard WordPress? I will give you detail instructions when I know the detail about your engine.

    yep… i think wordpress doesn’t have post2cat anymore… they change the coding for 2.3 I think… it displays an error with my database name so I temporarily hide the search function.

  36. wiffy

    Oktober 12, 2007 at 5:59pm

    I upgraded my wordpress to 2.3 and apparently they no longer use post2cat for searching. Hence the search feature doesn’t work anymore. Could u suggest a fix for the search? Thanks!!! :)>-

    P.S. Luv this skin :x

      Can you give me more detail information? some screen shot? So I can help you to fix this problem.

      To change Ayumi Pictures is easy, just replaced Ayumi Picture files on images folder.

    Hi Jauhari, nice theme man! I use it in my new blog with minor modification (hope you don’t mind). I have a question, how to put comments-form in About page or other new page. Thanks !

    • Hashi

      Agustus 29, 2007 at 4:51pm

      solved it.. i miss to call the comment function ha3 stupid me :d.
      Thanks again for such a nice theme :)>-

    Agustus 25, 2007 at 12:46am

    Actually, I may have spoken too soon. I’m seeing a few new problems now. :(

    Now my posts with comments appear to be ok with both the sidebar and the footer. But my posts that have no comments aren’t displaying the sidebar at all, and the footer on those pages gets pushed down unusually far, with a big white gap between the end of the content and the footer area.

    I only swapped out the files that you previously said were changed, so I wouldn’t have to try to alter everything else to account for my own changes (like the addition of advertising and such). With 1.2, did you change any files other than the single.php, 404.php, and style.css that you mentioned before? If so, maybe that’s why I have a new issue.

    Thanks for your help!

    • Jauhari

      Agustus 26, 2007 at 8:19pm

      Please change this file too


      I hope this will move out your problem ;)


  42. Jenn

    Agustus 25, 2007 at 12:09am

    Thanks for the help. The comment and footer problems are both fixed, and the theme is working beautifully. :)

  43. Jenn

    Agustus 22, 2007 at 8:51am

    Would it be possible to tell us which files were changed? If I can avoid overwriting all of my visual changes for my site by just uploading the altered file(s), that would be great, because I honestly doubt I’d remember to change everything a second time. :d

    • Jauhari

      Agustus 22, 2007 at 5:27pm

      I just change on

      Agustus 24, 2007 at 3:09pm

      Hi Jenn, I was made some change again to version 1.4 on my latest version I was fix gradient problem and on comment problem too.

      So please download my latest version.


  44. Jenn

    Agustus 15, 2007 at 9:02pm

    Thanks for the great theme. :)

    I’m using it at http://allfreelancewriting.com, and am running into to problems that I haven’t been able to figure out (hopefully you’ll know the answer). :)

    1. The footer floats up on most pages (like any post page), and

    2. On posts where there are comments posted, the sidebars get pushed to the bottom of the page.

    If you have any ideas on fixing those two things, I would appreciate it. :)
