    Cap. Is there anyway I can remove the header? I try, but when I click header it says I do not have permission to change header. Just checking. I am trying to remove the photo. Thanks again for putting together this AWESOME wordpress theme!!!! I love your Ice Cap theme – but can’t work out how to change the colour of the title font. Is this possible? Hi. I'm using your Ice Cap theme - love it! But I've noticed that it won't allow me to format in bold or italic. I'm not sure if there's something that I've done wrong (I'm not exactly Mr. Technie) or if it's something that needs to fixed in the code. Would love to hear from you about what might be wrong. OK, so I have set up the WP self hosted at my domain. What I wanted to do is remove the gray bar area and "home" link there too. I do not want these on any pages of site. I attached a screenshot of the homepage, and added red line showing what I mean. Hope its not too hard to modify, and it wont ruin all your coding work! ask: url, screenshot help: file name, line# help
