There’s a new version of 3ColumnK2 out, and it fixes — yes, fixes! — those annoying permission bugs. So now I’m going to stick with this and start styling the site.
Other than that, I got that plugin working that requires SOAP (thanks jrenken!), I haven’t gotten the one working that requires deep voodoo, and that’s about it. If I can think of anything else, I’ll add it.
Thanks for your interest in the site.
