Christmas Stylesheet (29 posts)

    I just wanted to invite anyone who wants to to take my Christmas stylesheet. It is at http://josiah.ritchietribe.net/blog/wp-layout.css and you are welcome to take it and try it on your own blog and edit the tar out of it to meet what you like. I think it would work with the default template just fine as mine isn't a large variation if the default. If you do use it let me know. I'd just simply like the pleasure of watching how other deviate.
    For those who don't know how, this is just a replacement for your wp-layout.css file. Backup your current one and put this one in its place then refresh your browser to see your new Christmas look.

    @antifuse: hehe, you should have seen it before I added the red. It was entirely monochrome green before. That one is available at http://josiah.ritchietribe.net/blog/default.css.backup. Nothing but green... :-)

    @Sushubh: Nope? It's not the latest of anything of mine. Did this go in the wrong slot?

    Are we going to the same link? Where's the option to change stylesheets?

    I'm going to need help finding that extension. I installed EditCSS, but that wasn't it. It does look like a helpful tool though.

    This is the one I have installed. There must be more for the alternative stylesheet selector.
    Mozilla sites use them to offer fixed and non-fixed menus.
    Another example of usage is present here:

    Ah, now that I see. That is a neat little extension... I see my X-Mas one there, but the green isn't mine. My green theme was very similar to my Christmas one. The main background was the same color.

    Does Opera have an equivalent of extensions though? Why build it in and bog it down when only a small portion of users will use it? I like the ectension concept. Opera is a good browser, but I'm of the opinion that Firebird surpassed it. I don't need email on my browser so don't want it installed. :-) Now at home I use Opera 6 on a 300Mhz w98 box and also use its then ugly email program, but that's another story. Opera is a very good browser and I think it's more popular than most realize with that whole masquerading as IE bit.

    Does Opera have popup blocking now? I'm using the pre M2 version at home.

    Opera had popup blocking before mozilla had that.
    I read it someplace I can trust.
    It has popup blocking that works real well.
    Just 1 thing, it does not inform u of a block as of now as Moz does.
    See, I am not blind, I know where Opera lacks in comparision to Moz too. But these are few cases... :)

    I use Firebird. That extension's been sorta... obsolete to me.
    http://www.pixelechoes.net/albums/soft/not_correct_susubh.jpg as proof.
    As per the Christmas theme... if it's the one I just saw, I can't see a thing on it. Red + just about any other color becomes something I can't see.

    well my default installation of Firebird 0.7 did not come with any of its own and the 1 I am using is the one installed since 0.6. The problem with Firebird Open Source extension is that for every feature there are xillians of different extensions. Hence the fact I prefer Opera.

    One nice thing about extensions is that the user has more control over the browser. Not interested in Web Development? Fine--don't d/l the extensions. I would rather go get the stuff I want, and ONLY the stuff I want, rather than have the browser ship with a ton of stuff that's not necessary. It keeps the footprint of the browser down on the hard drive and simplifies the design.
    It's virtually the principle of an automobile assembly line - run the chassis through one way, and you get the base model, which is simpler and cheaper; run another chassis through, but this time add tinted glass and air conditioning and a CD stereo system. What's BETTER about Firebird, is that you don't HAVE to have the CD stereo system AND the air conditioning, like they do with cars. You get your choice.

    I am again doing that!
    Opera vs. Firebird... :P
    Opera comes fully loaded at half the price (download size and hence the footprint) of Firebird.
    My point was many extensions doing the same stuff hence creating confusion of mine does that that ways not that ways...
    Not that they have to be installed seperately. ;)

    I think a browser thread should be started and all browser discussion should be routed there.

    Yeah, but this is a 2 years old thread. Not to mention you already posted your request http://wordpress.org/support/topic/50295 and double posting is considered a big NO NO around here :)
    Be patient, wait... or make a theme for Christmas.

    Wow. Another post that's been resurrected. Even better, the link is broken.
