Nulis

I have implemented the Nulis theme on the wiki, which is apparent if you visit the site using a desktop or other large screen device. It still uses wptouch for smaller screens. I have turned off wptouch for this theme. It seems good for my android systems. The rest of this article talks about anchor tags, the header image and additional toolbar buttons.

Snipsnap Themes

Snipsnap offered multiple look and feels and for the advanced CSS coder, offered many opportunities to manage itl. My changes were relatively simple. In fact it might have been Snipsnap that took me to Blue Robot which influenced me a lot.

Green Robot Theme

On the previous bliki, implemented in Snipsnap, I implemented a Green Robot Theme. This was based on Blue Robot, which rather inspired me as you can see if you read the code and comments of what remains of my static site.

This is documented on the Snipsnap wiki at

CSS

I should also capture some comments on the CSS used by Snipsnap, it is/was a good looking blog in my opinion.

Green Robot

It used Georgia as a serif font, and Verdana as the sans-serif font. It’s basic content was san-serif , and the blog headings and dates used the Georgia font. The full css can be found on the snipsnap site.

The picture above suggests that when the blog comes across, some of the articles there, will document the progress and discoveries made as at the time, which it seems was 2006. It’s getting to be a long time ago.

zbench

I have decided to use Zbench as my theme for the my revised blog, for which I have a wiki article, called  davelevy.info v4

See also WordPress themes at davelevy.info, which deals with the header.php, front pages, read more and category and tag lists.

The two initial problems I have are using the heading tags, and their code style.

I also would like to have the pages having individual comment closure dates, so that I can create an always open guest book, which i believe is possible on this wiki.

I need to check out Child Themes. This will make preserving customisations much easier.

Planet (Venus) Themes (CSS)

I use Sam Ruby’s Planet Venus. The package comes with two themes, I have always rather liked the ‘Fancy’ theme. This article was finished in May 2011, and talks about the css required to amend a planet output page in HTML/CSS. It was written for my planet G3 feed which was a G3 RSS repeater. It may just be a useful source for those who wish to create new themes. (I shall be doing this in March/April 2015 as I develop the refresh of davelevy.info.)

Snipsnap Problems

This was copied across from the snipsnap bliki on 26th July. It’s all a bit redundant now, but it might be useful for others. This was a pagfe that documented my work in building the configuration and in some places represented a work in progress. In some cases, the resolution is not documented and in others I failed to resolve it. I eventually gave up on snipsnap. Hope this page helps someone! Continue reading “Snipsnap Problems”
