Awhile back, I downloaded and installed the Simplified WordPress theme from justskins.com, basically because of the fact that it was exactly what it stated that it was… SIMPLIFIED. The only problem with it was that there was an open <div> tag left somewhere so that would cause the right sidebar to sometimes fall below the comment form, and on the posts where there were no comments, the entire background of the site would bot show up. After reading a couple of the suggested fixes on justskins.com, I realized that though they fixed the problem on the page that was erroring out, they’d then cause another problem. That’s why I’ve just gone ahead and released this new solution.
I’ve zipped up the comments.php file and it can be downloaded below. It fixes all of the post display problems with the Simplified WordPress Theme. I hope this helps those of you who use the theme! Good luck!
