thanks for replying!
the one thing I have noticed with this theme running on joomla 2.5 is that everything in the admin system is labeled in an unfinished manner, is this what you encountered also?
JADMINISTRATION, JSEARCH_FILTER_NAME, COM_MENUS_VIEW_ITEMS_TITLE, etc. etc.
Instead of the labels appearing correctly, this is what I see when I login to http://site/administrator
Other than the difficulty in reading them sometimes, that is the only issue i've experienced.(cross fingers)
