EboNeo 2.0 and Simplicty

EboNeo 2.0

This is the new EboNeo 2.0 template with a horizontal navigation bar.

This is a move up from EboNeo , NeoColours and most definitely Samurai in as far as better management of screen real estate

If you are a person with a lot of labels and prefer having a linklist on the horizontal bar instead then this is the version you want.

follow similar installation instructions as explained here




Simplicity


This is the clean cut Simplicity Template, plus generous amounts of open space

If you prefer a navigation link list on the horizontal bar instead of the labellist then just switch them in the page elements view and save...and you are done!

[there might be need to manually remove the title of the labellist or linklist once in the navigation bar for a more streamlined appearance]

....
(both these templates are Neo Type Templates....they have a post fetching function in javascript meaning you do not have to load each post on a different complete, only the selected post is reloaded on the same page... This saves on browsing time and is much more cool I think...)

hey bro ,,i like the neo template but a problem. In NEO template , back link are not showing in comments . so can you rectified this problem.
for example:- "james said" this line is not clickable in NEO template ..can you change into clickable ...please i m waiting

diddy47 said...

can you show me a specific blog where you are having this problem..possibly a specific post back link to make tracking down easier. I need more to work on since i made a test blog and the back link seems to work fine, my back links also seem to have no problem...so i think i may need to look at your blogospy

you should also realise that Simplicity and the EboNeo series are based on Neo type functionalities. The post fetching features allows the user to update posts without having to reload the page. So when you use it, only the post reloads during navigation...back-links will only appear after you click on the actual url of the post(i.e. the post title)otherwise you are navigating in javascript

jimm said...

on your blog also.... see that "diddy47 said" and "jimm said" these things are not clickable. i want these things to be clickable . if these things are clickable then neo tempalte will be good more....

diddy47 said...

by your response i take it you understand why the backlinks do not intually show up until you click the actual url of the post....

about the "jimm said...diddy47 said" not being clickable.... the javascript for neo functionality was not written with this in mind. The javascript will have to be rewritten to include the feature you requested. I will start on it this week and be back to you asap

jimm said...

ok thanks diddy i am waiting ...please make the java script like wordpress...(after click it should open the commentor's profile or commentor's blog)

diddy47 said...

i have done an initial draft of the comment box javascript...as you can see the name can be clicked. Now I am working on it linking back to the authors profile....

patience

diddy47 said...

jimm...i have some bad news for you...there is a command conflict that interferes with how EboNeo/Simplicity works...i'm afraid i have to postpone introducing the feature you requested indefinitely

Would anyone be willing to help me? I've gone over and over the instructions of installation yet after I've installed the template I get nothing in my POSTS list except a lable and a rss feed icon. What have I done wrong? I feel bad asking since everyone else seems to get it. I would appreciate your time. Thanks

hi william...it seems that there is a problem with the java script...please find in your css body

http://diddy47.googlepages.com/neo.js

and replace with

http://kundaistreet.googlepages.com/neocolours1.js

then save to see effect

if this does not solve your problem, which i suspect then there is corrupted or conflicting code in the css body itself. I'd ask you to upload your original profile template, the one you backed up before installing EboNeo. After that reset your script should be clean and a fresh install should work without a glitch. (If you no longer have it the choosing one of blogger's own templates will do the trick)

Thanks for responding ;) Maybe someone else is having a problem and it can be helped in solving the situation. Changing the code did not work however, I did decide to change the site Settings/Site Feed data. its in advanced as I had read on hackosphere. I had it set to short, when I changed it too full "blog posts feed" it worked. Almost. i get only one post in the list at a time. I know nothing of code at all so i struggle a bit. i love this template. It covers a lot of the ground i was trying with widgets and hoping there was a way of not having too much crap upload at once. Covers the colors and general scheme layout and nifty effects. Some peoples blogs are too long and its my personal fight against long blogs...even though mine will suck either way. i'd love to get this working totally properly. Thanks for responding, it adds the personal touch.

diddy47 said...

heya...i see you have tried eboneo.2.0...the script works fine but the aesthetics are the glitch huh. If you are going for a horizontal label display I suggest that you refine your labels to be fewer or categorised so they can fit snug on the in-line....


i think you have noticed gaps in the 'recent posts' display'...this is because some of your posts do not have titles...the script recognises that there is a post but cannot generate a link because links are generated from title urls.

u'll have you blog looking sleek in no time

and about code ...may i suggest something called blogospy

William said...

I appreciate your help. Though i've decided to flip the colors on the Simplicity template, I neglected to read the 'creative commons' tag which, denies alteration. Therefore if you visit the blog again and decide you don't like it i'll delete it. I remembered it on your blog and thought i'd see what it was about and placed it in my blog which is only seen when you go to add the feed. i read it then. ;-)

how this (code and all)works isn't so much the typewriter for the indigenous rainforest indian tribes. What?!

Thanks again

it's all cool bro...though i can't say i understand everything that you said

anyway cool...later hey

VampireXxX said...

Hi dude....how are you ?

I am thinking to move to a paid hosting from blogspot...just wonder if you have time to design me a website so that I can upload it ? how to reach you ? We can negotiate the price =) 'cos I like your neo tempalte and I'm currently using it for all my blogs.

diddy47 said...

hi...took some time to reply...a bit held up...

but yeah...i think what you ask is possible...tell me the details of what you want it(them?) to look like and what you are offering...

later...
