EboNeo


I have recently gone on a a bit of a rampage. tweaking up my Neo.

I can say what I cam up with was an evolved Neo, not so much as in function but as in look and feel.

This is dark and all together different.

If you want to apply EBoNeo to your blog get it here and save to your computer.


(if you don't like the rounded edges one the buttons get this version).
Some people have requested a right sided main content version. I hope this is to their liking.
If you want the right handed version get it here.

UNO: BEFORE STARTING ANYTHING BACK-UP YOUR CURRENT TEMPLATE

1. If you wish to save some of your own widgets read at the bottom of the post to see how to include them with EboNeo. Otherwise continue with step 2

2.Upload EboNeo and save it to your blog.

3. You should not get any Widgets are about to be deleted message.

4. If you do go and make sure you copy all the widgets shown in the message and paste them in EboNeo again as shown below (otherwise they will be deleted).

5. Upload EboNeo again and save . The template should save without any error or message pop ups. Check the new look!

If you want to change the background picture,

Go to

#outer-wrapper {
width: 950px;
margin:0 auto;
padding:10px;
text-align:left;
font: $bodyfont;
background: $bgcolor;
background: #000000 url(http://diddy47.googlepages.com/dirtyyellow.jpg)
center repeat-x;
}

and insert the HTML of the picture you want and save the template. That's it your EboNeo is ready to go!
Here is an alternative image I recommend, it has a metallic gray instead of a dirty yellow hue. -here- .

dirty yellow
metallic gray

NB: If you have your own widget you wish to use within EboNeo, then open EboNeo on notepad (or similar text editor) and find this section and insert the widgets you want to preserve. they will be uploaded together with it. make sure you copy the unexpanded widgets correctly otherwise they will be permanently lost.



<div id='newsidebar-wrapper'>
<b:section class='sidebar' id='newsidebar' preferred='yes'>
<b:widget id='Posts' locked='false' title='Posts' type='HTML'>
<b:includable id='main'>
<div id='LabelDisplay'>
<div id='LabelTitle'>
</div>
<div class='widget-content' id='LabelPosts'>
<script language='javascript'>fetchLatestPosts('<data:blog.homepageUrl/
>', '');</script>
</div>
</div>
</b:includable>
</b:widget>
YOUR WIDGETS HERE...
</b:section>
</div>

Happy blogging.

(The asynchronous loading of posts and LabelDisplay will not occur if your blog is set to private)


NB: You might want to put your posts in categories like I did instead of each post having unique labels. if you insist on unique labels then you might want to consider a label cloud. Here are the simple instruction on how to do it. Promise, this will look better than a long list of labels.
