Make a wish for a BlogEngine.NET theme

27. Oktober 2008 23:04 by Henrik Stenbæk | 12 Kommentare

Do you have a favorite blog theme that sadly only available to Wordpress or Blogger – now it's time to suggest it for adapting to BlogEngine.NET.

Lately I have been like a drug addict converting Wordpress themes for BlogEngine: I haven’t nearly finish one theme before rushing into the next. Now it has to come to an end! :-) But I won’t stop entirely: I just want to try to slow down and only do one theme a week. And to make sure that I actually converting themes that somebody wants to use I’ll ask you all to suggest your favorite theme by posting a comment to this post including at least a link to the theme preview and/or the theme homepage. At the end of the week I’ll decide what theme to adapt – if this decision is too hard I’ll put up a poll and ask you to vote for the one that I should adapt.

Please remember only to suggest themes released under GPL or CC ShareAlike type of licence, this means that I cannot adapt any commercial themes (mostly named something like “premium theme”).

Happy suggesting

Setup tip

  1. Go to [yoursite]/admin/Pages/Controls.aspx
  2. Change the Button text from (default=Search) to . (just a dot) this will fix a IE7 problem with a button that will not look transparent.

22. Oktober 2008 00:22 by Henrik Stenbæk | 7 Kommentare

Finally I got it fixed: the WP theme Illacrimo is ready for BlogEngine 1.4.5.

Untitled

Illacrimo was originally designed by Design Disease

I welcome any comments and suggestions.

Enjoy.

 

Theme highlights

I have seen several BE versions of this theme out of the web but none of theme seems to have got the comments section right.

Please find the commens formatted in the way the original designer ment it to be:

Untitled2

I also had a hard time making the comments form look the "right" way:

Untitled3

Hope you all appreciate it ;-)
