    Hello, i've been trying to make my own theme with this tutorial:

    http://www.techwench.com/05-2005/15-theme-cheat-sheet

    I've got the Header, Index, Style, Content, and Footer

    It works perfect on my home page but when i use the theme on my signup page, it doesnt show but instead only my header ontop.

    What script do i need to use?

    Sign up script is located in wp-newblog.php

    Okay that wasnt exactly what i was asking for but i figured it out anyway =P

    But now i have a DNS problem. I've activated wildcards, and when i type a user of my blog (auric.xanblog.my3host.com) it redirects to the IP, which is not my site (but rather the first site created on the server).

    I put ServerAlias *.xanblog.my3host.com and BIND *xanblog.my3host.com as well.

    That sounds like something you should discuss with your host.

    Does this mean I have to overwrite the wp-newblog.php manually? Is there an offical way to customize this within my theme?

    Is the site working fine otherwise? Does it work with the default theme?

    I have some alignment issues with my customized layout because wp-newblog.php contains some hard coded css settings that I'd like to customize. There is no way to customize wp-newblog.php except overwriting it directly in wp-inst. :(

    I saw that Wordpress.com has an improved version with privacy settings, language selection and legal "flotsam". Any chance that this code can be integrated into wp-newblog.php?

    Yes, I am also thinking of adding a checkbox option for Terms of Use, but have yet to get it working. The warnings when checkbox is not checked and all appears with the new checkbox, but the user is just not brought through to show a new blog created. Anyone has managed checkbox in wp-newblogs.php?

    I haven't done that either. But I need to write it down to the database to have a record that the user accepted the terms and conditions.

    All I did was make a Page of the main blog called Signup. It lists the brief terms and conditions. If you agree, then click the link to get your blog, which goes to wp-newblogs.php.

    Probably added it to the form in the function signup_user in wp-signup.php as a variable. Within the function validate_user_signup, do a check to see if the box was checked with a 'die' if it wasn't and a link back to the form to try again.
