Simple Balance 2.2 is now available for free downloading. Although it was previously working with the recently released WordPress 2.7, now, the theme has built-in support for threaded comments (you can reply to people’s comments with a maximum depth of 3 steps) which is a new functionality added by the latest WordPress release.

If you’re running a WordPress version prior to 2.7, fear not! The comments section has backwards compatibility.

Another cool feature has been added to the options panel and it refers to the 125×125 right sidebar banners. Now, you can also add Google AdSense code, individually, for each of your banners.

And that’s not all! Christmas is around the corner, and so’s the New Year.

New color scheme: Xmas Edition

Why not give your Simple Balance themed blog a cool new color scheme to match the Holiday spirit? A new color scheme – Xmas Edition – has been added, raising the total number of schemes to 10!

Here’s a quick preview:

Upgrading from prior versions

If you’re upgrading from 1.0 or 2.0/2.1, all you have to do is to copy the new files over the old ones, overwriting those that already exist (if you haven’t done changes to the theme) and adding the new ones.

Once you’ve uploaded the files, by simply entering the theme’s options panel (Design/Appearance > Simple Balance 2.2 CP) the new options will automatically be installed.

Happy Holidays!

It’s time to give you blog a nice present!
