Custom b2evolution template design called DecemberI found the high-resolution photograph which is used in this b2evolution template while browsing some stock photography websites. The original image is a very high resolution photo of a leafless branch encrusted with icy crystals. I reduced the scale of the original image to fit a portion of the branches within the header area.

The blurred depth of field in the original photograph makes for a perfect area in which to display the blog name and description, and the overall color-scheme flowed well into the blog’s content area.

The December template for b2evolution blogs is another release in the ‘Smoothe’ series of templates. Like the previous releases in the ‘Smoothe’ series, the December skin is 100% compliant with the XHTML Transitional specification and uses valid CSS 2.0 stylesheets. It has been designed with a static layout for 1024x768 monitor resolutions.

This skin contains the following:

  1. This b2evolution skin contains a revised _lastcomments.php file and accompanying CSS styles for smoother display of most recent comments.
  2. The skin contains customized icons for delete, edit, and permalink
  3. It contains pre-built styles for the Search Cloud plugin for b2evolution
  4. It contains a custom icon and styles for blockquotes
