As James pointed out earlier on, Grazr themes are now available, coming in twelve tasty flavours. I had been looking at my own style for it (although never got around to implementing it) but have to say that I’m quite impressed with the new offering.
If you take a look at the sidebar on the blog you’ll notice my own Grazr window is the new milk_white theme, fits perfectly into the blog and if I may say so looks a hell of a lot nicer than the previous iteration. Fair play lads, ye did a bang up job.
Cool Ken, I’m glad you like them. I’m going to write a couple of posts on how to make custom themes as well as some “advanced” topics, the widget was intentionally built to use standard CSS so people could really go crazy with it (like you discovered). When we get our user accounts system working we’re planning on hilighting the creative abilities of people who like to tweak visual settings like this and showcase some of them with sections like “most popular themes”. Hopefully these twelve will be a primer/introduction and lots more will come!
Ooooo sounds quite nice. Kudos on the new themes though, very tasty indeed! Of course I’ll have to add a little kenmc twist to it all when the time comes 🙂
Looks great Ken! You know, now that I think more about it ‘Skirt’ could almost be used as a replacement for ‘Skin’. TBH I never did like that term…. just a bit too graphic for me! Looking up the definition of ‘Skirt’ I see included – “A piece of fabric that extends over or beyond something to afford protection. An outer edge; a border or margin”.
You could be on to something there James. I almost always refer to a changing the appearance of a site as ‘dressing it up’ (at least within conversation anyway) so ‘Skirt’ isn’t bad at all. I’ll join the campaign to change it so 🙂
