Q. How do I enable Disqus for my blog?
A. After installing the theme, select "Edit HTML" on the theme options panel, press Ctrl-F (Command-F on Mac), and type "example". Replace "example" where indicated in the code with your Disqus shortname. Save changes, return to the theme options panel, enter your Disqus shortname again where prompted, and save changes again to finish.

Q. The retina graphics aren't displaying properly in my browser.
A. This is a known issue on certain recent builds of Firefox (18.x and 19.x) and is expected to be addressed in the next major release. Chrome and Safari have been tested and work as expected.

Q. Something isn't working! Help!
A. If you're experiencing problems with an unmodified install of Chalkdust, please don't hesitate to let me know! The more information you can provide about your problem, the more likely it is that I'll be able to assist you. Please understand that I can't provide full support for all users running custom installs (i.e. modified HTML), but if it's a simple modification that's causing major issues, feel free to bring it to my attention.

Q. I have a question that's not answered here.
A. Leave me a message here or shoot me a tweet at @mia_caro--I'll get back to you as soon as I can! Thanks for your support!
