More changes to Illacrimo for WordPress

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

As you can see, i did several other changes to the Illacrimo theme for WordPress.
Between several minor fixes, you will notice that there is more space on the post column now, and I removed the original column for the post’s date too. Instead, the date is located now next to the post title.
I also replaced several images with CSS equivalents, so the site loads a little faster now and uses less bandwidth.

Illacrimo WordPress theme: validated and fixed.

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

As you maybe noticed, i am using the excellent Illacrimo theme for wordpress on this blog because, basically, i was lazy to code and design my own theme, but most importantly, because i just loved this one.

In any case, there were some minor problems about this really wonderful theme:

  1. It was not Valid XHTML
  2. It was not Valid CSS
  3. There were some minor discrepancies around different browsers (specially in the search box)

So i just fixed the whole HTML and CSS code to be 100% valid, and i also corrected the minor CSS related problems in regards to the search box.
I also did some other minor modifications regarding the line and letter spacing on the fonts to make it “easier to the eyes”.

Please note that this theme includes MY OWN ADSENSE code on it. In order to remove or replace the adsense block with your own, you MUST edit the files single.php and sidebar.php and replace the adsense block with your own. I added adsense directly inside the template to avoid the use of an extra plugin.

Also, in order to create the “info” box (like this one) or the “quote” box, you need to use a span with “info” or “quote” as the class name:
<span class=\"info\">the text for the info box goes here</span>

If you want, you can download the “fixed” version by clicking here.
