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: http://theme-generator.net/wordpress
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 2

    Thursday, January 1st, 2009

    I’ve been adding some corrections and more features the past week to improve the engine:

    - You can now change the blog title and description:

    Note that this will have no impact on your final blog. This is just to test as preview while working on the theme.

    - add border element to each section:

    - You can also hide/show some features within a section by clicking on the title (title, font, links, …). This way, you can have a better overview on all the features and maybe avoid to get lost!!

    If you have ideas of usefull features I should had soon, just let me know by contacting me.

    have fun using the wordpress theme generator :p

    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

    Improvements:
    - 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:

    Wordpress theme Generator goes online

    Sunday, November 30th, 2008

    Welcome to the release of the new Wordpress theme generator!

    Ok I know, there is already some other generators on the web but I think they are to basic : none of them has enough features to generate a fully customizable theme. That’s the reason why I decided to build my own.

    I’m planning to add more features in the next updates to always customize more elements in the layout. If you have any suggestions or ideas to improve the generator, feel free to contact me.

    The generated theme is compatible with current browers: FF2|3, IE6|7, Safari 3 and is widget ready but i’ll suggest you just go try it :
