    One other detail: custom menus can be deleted with CSS if you want a simpler version of a theme that includes one. That’s what I did and I’ve been very happy with the result.

    This is probably a stupid question but i’ll ask it anyway. I am using the Twenty Ten theme and I was wondering if or how I can use the same sort of slide show that you have that Global Art Junkie uses in the On Demand theme, or is that kind of thing only available on certain themes?
