Hi!

In a few weeks, I want to work on creating new themes for Bludit. For me, it has been a great satisfaction to find so simple and so wonderful CMS system.

For this reason, I feel obliged to start collaborating with the project. To make new Bludit themes, I would like to receive some suggestions.

For example, what type of design you like more? (Modern, minimalist, sober, elegant ...)

Type of menu you prefer? Top, sidebar,...

Hi,
I like more the minimalist themes with sidebar, but any theme are welcome, If you need any help with the part of the PHP I can help you.

PD: I moved the topic to General, this forum is more for publish themes, plugins and hacks.

Thanks for your help.

Hey, that´s a cool idea. I was also thinking about making a theme. Is there something special about the licence I have to know?

Another question I have: is there an overview of all possible php commands you could use in the themes?

Not yet. But you can find some basics in the documentation:

Thx.

Is there a way that you only display one special plugin, like only "tags" or only "pages".
So you can put the tags into the footer and the pages into the header for example.

In the moment everything ist displayed in the sidebar.

Hi you have two options, get the code from the plugin, from the method siteSidebar() (it's better because you don't need to enabled the plugin) or you can uses the array $plugins['all'].

For example,

Code: Select all

echo $plugins['all']['tags']->siteSidebar();

Code: Select all

$db = $dbTags->db['postsIndex'];
$filter = $Url->filters('tag');

foreach($db as $tagKey=>$fields)
{
	$count = $dbTags->countPostsByTag($tagKey);

	echo '<a href="'.HTML_PATH_ROOT.$filter.'/'.$tagKey.'">'.$fields['name'].' ('.$count.')</a>';
}
