[igiveupfilter] Trying to export my current wordpress-run blog onto a new wordpress-run blog. I keep getting an XML error that says "XML document must have a top level element. Error processing resource 'file:///C:/Users/damnjezebel/Desktop/wordpress.2008-05-16.xml". I've tried this link
which helped me the last time I moved my blog, but that's not working this time. I've tried changing permissions as well and no luck. please help me import my old blog before i pull all of my damn hair out!

Wordpress/PHP/Dreamhost web hosting question: I run Wordpress 1.5.2 on a particular web page which is hosted with Dreamhost. This web page has been running fine for years and I haven't done anything to change it. However, sometime within the last few weeks, the sidebar started "choking" on a particular line of code: Nothing after this line is processed or appears on the page. If this line of code is removed, everything else appears normally. Help? [more inside]

I have a web site using Wordpress and I'm trying to figure out a css problem with IE. The first thing I'm doing is creating a seperate IE stylesheet. I've followed all the instructions found in the Wordpress forums but can't seem to get IE to pick up the new stylesheet. (I've already asked this question there but haven't gotten back anything that worked.)
Here's what I've added to my header.php *below* the call to the regular style.css:
Here's my code:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php bloginfo('template_directory'); ?>/style-ie.css" type="text/css" />
I know that IE is picking up the if-then, because I added a random text string in there and IE showed it. The way I'm testing whether or not IE is getting the style-ie.css sheet is by changing the color of the menu bar from orange (non-IE) to white (IE). I've also tried hardcoding the path to the other css sheet and that didn't help.
I'm at my wits end. What am I doing wrong?

New blog at Wordpress.com
. Would like to use w.bloggar
as my desktop editor for posts. Everything's configured properly and looking great, except for this error I get when I start up w.bloggar: "w.bloggar: 401 / Your blog server returned the following error message: / Sorry, you must be able to edit posts on this blog in order to view categories." I'm sure there's a simple explanation, but googling and FAQ digging turn up nothing. What gives?

I gifted my family a Wordpress blog (it's all up and designed and everything). I want a virtual center for our family that now spans the globe and can't get together often. However, how can I get the older coots to not only understand WHAT a blog is but how to use it. They use the interwebs. But only to look up the goofy stuff old people like - like when Murder She Wrote is on. Or to hate on George Bush. But not so much to interact. More inside. [more inside]

There's a great magazine style Wordpress theme called "Gridlock" which allows for some cool tricks, but appears to be limited in terms of changes.
First take a peek at the theme.
And the download page.
It has a large spot at the top for the newest article, and then below this, side by side, are the next two most recent entries.
The problem is there doesn't seem a way to another row for more posts. The designer explains the reason he doesn't want to make this an option is because he likes it the way it is - however, it is open source, so he encourages others to tweak it.
Any coders out there up to the challenge to figure this out?
The other major request is finding a way to make this theme centered on the page... although I've read of some workarounds online already.
