Love the redesign of the site — looks super! Clean (as Mark says) and elegant.
Wish I understood WordPress enough to help, but… I know just barely enough to maintain my own (considerably less ambitious) blog. Whenever something goes awry on my blog, I struggle to set it right. So… I can offer only sympathy. Which, I realize, doesn’t help you solve the problem. Um,… did I mention that the redesign looks really nice?
