Temporarily save a theme!

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2009

As designing a nice theme could take a good amount of time, I thought that adding a save function could be useful. In other words, you can start designing a theme, save it, leave the site / turn off your computer and resume editing the theme at another time. Isn’t that great?

Here’s how it works:
1- start customizing the layout of your theme as usual.
2- click on “Save!” (at the bottom of the generator) and close your browser
3- open your browser and go to the generator’s url:
A modal window should appear and ask you what you want to do with the theme you previously saved.
modalbox savedtheme

Be aware that the themes are only stored for 10 days on your computer and you have to make sure that cookies are allowed!

that’s all. When you are satisfied with your theme, click on “generate” to get the zip file.

    Wordpress theme generator v0.4 : new color schemes

    Thursday, February 12th, 2009

    Simple but convenient update!
    I’ve been replacing the suggestions of color schemes by better ones. The previous ones were not good enough and I don’t think you would have use it on your blog :p
    These are good basis to start with for your own theme. I hope you’ll enjoy it.

    I’m already working on the next and bigger update, but for now I miss some time to complete it.
    It will basicly handle with ading some more features around the theme generation… I can’t tell more, just give me some time :)

    Wordpress theme generator v0.3 : playing with fonts

    Friday, January 16th, 2009

    I think one of the big lack of this generator is that there was no way to change the font properties of the elements!

    - I just fixed that in this new update! YHAAA Example :
    wordpress theme generator font element
    You can change at least the font family, size and the color of each font element! I think that’s the minimum, adding more feature is for the moment not necessary.

    - You can also independently change the properties of the blogs Title and Description:
    wordpress theme generator header element

    - In order to keep the generator as ergonomic as possible (not so easy with all tese new features…) and not to get lost, all the sections will be hidden at start. To display/hide it, just click on it!

    Wordpress theme generator update 1

    Saturday, December 27th, 2008

    Over 250 Themes have been generated since the launch of the generator, about 1 month ago. Thank you all guys!
    To help you giving more creativity to your themes, I worked on the generator to fix some bugs and improve some functionalities.

    Bugs fixed:
    - Theme name with spaces caused a bug when generating the theme
    - Background attachment was not working
    - The color picker on the title in the content section couldn’t be displayed

    - You can now customize the layout of images in the main part of your blog. This is available under the “content” section in the generator:
