Free BANS Wordpress Template - Single Right Grey

I have had several request to convert over the stock Build A Niche Store Templates to Wordpress/BANS templates. The popular one right now is the new single column templates Adam and Kelvin just released.

I have converted over the single right grey template to start with and the css can be adapted to other colors as well. I wanted to put out a basic one for everyone to play with first and more colors will follow soon.

Here is the demo to the grey Wordpress BANS template.

The free download is here.

You can buy me a cup of coffee if you like my work!

You can probably do this easier than any of us, but can you do the same thing using the 3 column template that is the sister to this template. Looks good.

Thanks for the work and moral support.
Do you know anything about the catagory numbers being changed by ebay?
I went to one of mysites and found that most of my pages showed no product. Did some fishing and found out that the numbers have been changed and the new numbers have not been connectied to the rss feed yet.
So no product.
Do you have any idea when this will be fixed?
Thanks again.

Gday Soggy, Thomas here from Australia. First of all i love your blog and it is a great help and inspiration. Also love the themes you provide. I've purchased Bans and have set 1 site up and had some success. I have a problem because i don't know how to set up the next site and how to actually use one of your templates. Could you post about setting up your second Bans site using one of your templates. If you do i will purchase the templates of you. Eagerly waiting Thoas.

Rolando said...

I downloaded this template and it works great!!

The only thing is I do not know how to have Items on the Front Page.

I know a lot of people say not to have items on the front. But I would like to have at least 3 items on the front page.

Can you tell me how?

This is my first venture into wp and bans (and I'm also new to Bans just a couple of months). I downloaded your 2-right-grey wp/bans template to try and use.
I noticed a couple of issues which I'm having difficulty in resolving.

1) The site looks completely different in explorer6 and firefox3. Why is this? If ex6 can look like the firefox version that would be great. How do I resolve
this issue. Its the menu colours specifically and the extra bars below the right column menus that throws it right out of wack! Could this be because of the use of .png instead of .jpg files?

2) Although a minor issuse which I can get around with basic html, when adding content in order to provide the spacing between each paragraph.

3) Regarding the 'Your Link' in top menu, are these to be edited in header file or is there another place for them. What was your main reason to have them in place - to jump to specific pages in the wp/store site or another reason?

Thanks for sharing the theme anyway and I hope we can work this out somehow. I keep looking at the stylesheet and other files but my eyes have gone all foggy now so I've had to resort to writing to you - lol.

1) IE6 can not handle transparent images. See below:

2) Ive fixed that in the paid versions

3) You can link them whereever you would like, much like the BANS demo link above

email me and I will gladly look at your site.

Thanks Soggy. Now how do I email you? Can't find an address anywhere, But I do recollect your name popping up in the BANS forum so I'll try through there. And perhaps thats where I got to know about your free WP/BANS.
