My site is currently running an older version (0.6? 0.7?) of Thematic and I'm contemplating upgrading to the PowerBlog child theme. I can use a couple of the features in it. But I have a couple of questions:
1. I like the color scheme of the original theme and don't really want to change it too much. How much work (for a non-programmer like me) would be to get that color scheme using PowerBlog?
2. I wrote a very simple plugin (or, more accurately, copy/pasted the code for a very simple plugin based on your advice) that implements a home page menu item. I seem to recall you warning me at the time that something was going to change in the next version of Thematic that would break the plugin. How hard would it be (again, for a non-programmer) to add a home page to the menu?
Thanks in advance.
