First off well done to all involved in enhancing the out OOTB Blog functionality.  I hope someone will be able to point me in the right direction with my minor issue:-

I've successfull installed and configured EBE 3.0 and activated it on my blog site.

Whilst using the Sharepoint Front End everything is fine, however when i try to connect to the Blog Site via Live Writer I'am having an issue with downloading the sites themes.  With Live Writer I'am able to use all the Blogs functionality, however ideally I would like to have the blogs theme also in live writer, as it does when you connect to the OOTB Blog.

I've connected to the Blog as per instructions ie, provides the Blogs URL http://domain/sites/Blog, provided my Domain credentials, selected MetaWeblog API as the blog type, used for the posting URL http://domain/sites/blog/metaweblog.ashx (i;ve also allowed ashx files now in my web app) .  When I allow Live Writer to connect to the site to determine the Theme I say Yes and then a window appears saying "The theme used for editing your blog posts could not be downloaded.  You will be able to post to this blog, but the editor will not use your blogs theme".

Is there a way to have the Theme downloaded to Live Writer? If so, can someone point me in the right direction.
