Support » Themes and Templates » php Editing

  • I’m unclear the proper protocol for editing the themes/templates. I’ve started using one I like, but want to make a few changes. I don’t know php. I took a quick look at the author’s blog, to which he hasn’t posted for about 4 months.

    The changes are probably relatively simple for anyone who knows what to do. How do I pursue this?

    No knowledge of PHP is required. If you know XHTML/CSS, you’re good to go.

    Well, in the case of some themes, a little knowledge of PHP goes a long way. But if you dive in and need help with anything, just ask here.

    Note that mentioning the theme’s name/url/etc. will help at that time for those willing to dig a little.

    Oh, almost forgot a most excellent resource:

    I’m quite certain that the theme I was working with was php. I know html and its close relatives. I will look further into the resources you’ve suggested.

    In the meantime, I selected another theme which makes most of the earlier objections disappear. The one I am now using (maybe not the last!) is a little more “common” but it is exceptionally readable, and that’s more important than unique. I’m sure that I will find interesting ways to make it more distinctive. The content is what really matters.
