All included CSS Themes bad?

Feb 13, 2009 at 7:42 PM


I'm not a CSS guru - so I wanted to use one of the included themes. I've tried a bunch of the included CSS/Themes and I have found the following:

1. They won't work on IE 7 and Firefox at the same time
2. They have small bugs(miss aligned graphics and stuff like that)
3. They don't work on IE 8 at all :-) But that may be IE 8 RC1 being bad

Today I'm using "elagante" - The theme properties that I look for is:

* Page like design with fixed size
* Not to much fancy stuff
* Simple and clean disgn
* Shouldn't be sad if the css files are commented....

Any suggetions?

I can’t say I have a suggestion for a theme to offer, but in defense of the existing themes, most all were created for IE6, and not too many have been looked at since.

Since this is open source, the authors are under no obligation to keep them up to date.

And for the most part they are not that bad. If this is a real problem, I would pay somebody to create you a new theme, or move to another product.


P.S. I think the dasEmerald theme has the latest CSS, not much in the way of comments at least for dasblog stuff.

I know it is open source - and that usually means good support for standard CSS since most "free" developers dislike IE 6 :-)

I'd try to run "elegante" through the w3c CSS validator and then make changes suggested and see if that works. Else I'll try migrating to Blog Engine.NET or maybe MS Oxite.
