    I am using the redline theme but only have the option to have all pages with 3 columns. I would like to have some pages without the side columns. Is that possible?

    Redline theme is great! Please check out my website:

    Is there a way for me to remove the side bar for this theme on all of my pages except the page titled “Portfolio,” which is my blog?

    Thanks so much!

    Hi –
    The visited links don’t change color! I changed every “a:visited” in the links section of style.css, but there was no change in their appearance. What can I do?

    Hi, i made a question here before about Redline for wordpress and you answered. Thanks for that.
    Now, one other question:
    – On IE, even though i use a header image, it still shows the blog title on top of the header image. How to remove that?
    – And also, one of my categories are being shown on the page title,up on the browser top bar. Right before the blog title, and description. How to fix that?

      Max, I did this to my header.php, to fix the I.E header problem:

      <!– Prevent display of blog title over header image
      <a href="” rel=”home”>
