I uploaded my first theme for dotNetBlogEngine today. You’ll find it at http://dnbegallery.org/cms/List/Themes/NotMetro. It’s powering the very blog you’re reading now. It’s called NotMetro as it borrows from the official Metro styles document but not too much. And of course, it’s not called Metro any more, is it.
Here are the specs.
- HTML5 – Uses the html5shiv to make it IE8- friendly. Not Modernizr as there’s no fancy CSS. Borrows a few ideas from the HTML5 Boilerplate project too.
- CSS – Uses normalize.css and styles from Code52’s wonderful metro.css project
Layout is one wide, 900px column. The widget zone is in the footer at the end of the page. All standard widgets look fine in it.
Any and all feedback would be gratefully received
