Almost done with another skin for the b2evolution blogging software. This one is called "blue lunar" and is XHTML Strict compliant. It displays at 800x600 without any horizontal scrolling.
If you'd like to check it out, you can switch to the "blue lunar" skin. This skin was designed for a now obsolete version of b2evo (0.9.x) and has been removed. Check back for an updated release. If you need a custom skin design built for a current b2evo release, leave a comment or send a message.
Some of the features, off the top of my head, include:
- valid css and xhtml-strict compliance
- css-based fluid and dynamic text size across all tested browsers, for accessibility reasons
- title tags for all link text
- post word-count and link to "all posts by author"
- display of last 3 posts made to each blog (customizable)
- optional display of last 5 aggregate posts from each blog
- display of last 5 comments made to each blog (customizable)
- stats page hidden unless user is logged in
- super-cool textured header area
- little white separator line auto-included after each post (gratuitous visual gimmick)
- each blog is numerically auto-identified in the body tag, so custom header graphics can be assigned per-blog
- custom rss, atom, and w3c sidebar shims
- menu bar auto-expands vertically to accomodate for multiple lines in case you have more than the average of 3 or 4 blogs
Additionally, I'm working on completing the CSS to allow multiple columns of text within the main post body.
If you're viewing this post in a skin other than "blue lunar" you won't see this section as two columns...
This skin is a static width and doesn't have a wide version, but dual-columns might be found useful.
It's still a work in progress. Leave me some feedback if you notice any issues, or have any suggestions for things that would be neat to include.
