[UPDATED on 28th October. Please see the sections in Red for updated features.]
I have been working on this for the last couple of days, and here’s the result. The first WebbyZone WordPress theme release – wz-SimpleArt! Before I go further, I must give credit to Templatemo.com for the original CSS design.

- Replace the URL and Image Path on lines 11, 14, 17 and 20 12, 15, 18 and 21 to display your own 125 x 125 button ads.
- Replace the Twitter URL with your own Twitter URL on line 29 30

- In order to display your recent tweets, replace with your own Twitter username on line 11
- You can change the number of latest tweets to display on line 13
- The encrypted code at the very end of footer.php is used to credit WebbyZone and Templatemo. Removing it might break the template. Please keep them intact and acknowledge the effort.
- Images with width of 450px or less works best with the theme. Larger image might break the theme. Centered images in posts look better.
