New Theme for BlogEngine.Net

January 11, 2008 | Uncategorized | 35 Comments

I'm working on a new theme that is closer to a lot of WordPress looks out there.

Right now, I've going with a zero-image look to see what I could accomplish without using images for curves. So far it's looking pretty boxy, but the colors aren't too bad. I decided to use curvyCorners instead of images to round things out. Since this is primarly a blog about coding, not design, I think it's appropriate that the design doesn't have a lot of imagery, and that the site uses code to accomplish its look.

BlogEngine.NET makes skinning the site super easy since it's basically just a MasterPage and a CSS file. I also made a small change to the tag cloud and created an alternate version of the recent comments control so it just has the author and post title.

    The Temple of Heaven is located in Beijing. Its in a huge park so you can walk around
    and enjoy the fresh air whilst exercising. Its a very nice park
    and you will see many Chinese
    locals walking around there. Also there is lots of Chinese tourists visitng the site
    just like you. Its nice to spend a few hours there and balance it
    with something else in Beijing.
    You will be amazed by the site and the style.

  33. Even though content is important I still don’t think its the most important factor,
    if your site has 0 links won’t do well in serps
    Added this to my wall, very good

  34. I was just seeking this information for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what’s the lack of Google strategy that don’t rank this type of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top websites are full of garbage.
