I’m currently testing the new Enterprise Theme http://shimworld.wordpress.com/ and found a couple of issues which I have written to support about. I have 10 pages only 7 currently show while the other 3 are tucked under the bar somewhere below Home | Contact Me | About. The bar on the right presently shows 3 categories which I cannot or don’t know how to disable (perhaps through CSS?)
The blog I need help with is shimworld.wordpress.com.

Also…The header text still seems to show up on every page, except home, when you turn it off and use an image for a header instead.
@shimworld: Apparently the theme can only accomodate a single row of page tabs; it’s not the only one with that limitation. And you’d be interested to know that in some browsers your blog shows up like that:
I did indeed.
Should I also contact support.. on the findings that I have on it… though several seem to be ( browser ) related… the problem is… I like Firefox, and strangely, this template works better on IE???
I’m using Firefox 3.6.4 and it display well for me.
1. The top horizontal menu displays static Page tabs with dropdowns to Child Pages.
2. Immediately beneath it in the second row of that horizontal menu Categories are displayed.
@sonsothunder, I checked out you’re site with the dev version of Google Chrome and Firefox 3.6.4 and the site seems to load and display just fine
I did notice your top post the wording is in all bold. Is this what you’re referring to ?
He’s tried a few themes now and he made the text blog himself by coding into the HTML editor.
I just viewed the theme in IE8 and it display fine too.
I have activated enterprise and so far the only glitch so far is that my nestled page only drops down from the parent page on fox and not ie8 .
http://www.sdnovascotian.ca The page is ‘little moments’ and it has ‘test’ nestled. Still testing. I really like this one, I hope it can be ironed out.
@shimworld The issue with header text in Enterprise has been resolved. I’ll be taking a look at your other issues in the next little bit. Also, you can gain some control over the layout and total length of menu items by making some of your top-level pages child pages of a parent page in the Edit Page screen.
@knitvision The header drop-downs for your “Little Moments” page is working correctly for me in IE8. Are they working now?
Sort of.. I have a 2nd test page nestled and it is hidden behind the category header.
That is probably why when I go to move my cursor down to click on the first test page below cat header it disconnects and I am unable to click on it.
I’m contemplating a switch to Enterprise as well since it’s pretty much exactly what I’ve been looking for these last couple of years. I can attest @themeshaper his advice is sound. I had to shorten the title of some of my pages and nest some of the more closely related ones and I now have a design that looks good to me.
BUT, into every life some rain must fall. @timethief has stated, there is that second nav bar that displays categories. If I could just find a way to turn off that nav bar so that it would just be a nice looking static bar, I’d be happier than a pig in mud. As it is, you will be very limited on the number of categories you can use without messing up your layout.
Does anyone know of a way to cut that bottom bar off?
Don’t throw tomatoes :) but I like that display of categories in the horizontal menu. I believe Enterprise is the only theme of the 86 or so of them that is coded to provide that feature for Category display in the horizontal menu.
I don’t know how to remove it, and if it’s coded into the underlying template as I expect that it is then even CSS editing will not remove it. The Theme team can you give a definitive answer when one of them post to this thread again.
