  1. I created a child theme for Thematic... first let me say it was great and the information on the web about customization is fantastic... however... I'm having a problem.

    When I add any functions to my functions.php file, they A) do not work and B) show up in text form at the top of my website. Can anyone tell me why that is and how to fix it?

  2. Allen, can you post the contents of you functions.php file in here? Enclose the code with the back tick ` symbol.

  3. if they show up in text form they must not be properly enclosed in <?php brackets

    functions.php must open w/ <?php

    <?php
    
    function show_bacon(){
      echo " bacon here! ";
    }
    add_action('thematic_belowheader','show_bacon');
    
    ?>
