I love this layout to bits, and I believe you’ve done a good job.
However, I have two major issues with this layout,
1) the search bar doesn’t show up on my blog. All I see is the header “Search”, when I had the code uploaded.
2) Would it be possible to include the date next to the time stamp, at the end of a post?
I tried tweaking it on my own, but it proved too difficult and I was also thinking about switching over to other layouts… but I guess I like this one too much. 🙁
