A quick note on amending the template files for the WordPress ‘Now Reading‘ plug-in to work with the LightWord theme. (Tested on version 2.8 only)

As per Rob’s excellent documentation, the problem is in the following section of the default Now Reading templates:
<div class="content">
<div id="content" class="narrowcolumn primary now-reading">
<div class="post">

I followed his instructions and the problem was solved easily:

  1. Create a now-reading directory in your Lightword theme directory and copy the default templates into the new folder (\wp-content\themes\LightWord\now-reading\)
  2. Edit  author.php, library.php, search.php, single.php and tag.php (sidebar.php already works) as follows:

Once in each file, in the first few lines, change:

<div id="content" class="now-reading primary narrowcolumn">

To read:

<div id="content-body" class="now-reading primary narrowcolumn">

That’s all there is to it. Hopefully this will be of use to someone – if it is, leave me a comment to let me know!
