New Template System for Blogit

We're pleased to put in place today a brand new template system for Blogit!

 

The rebuilt template system will allow us to add many frequently requested features, some of which we will be making available shortly. Other benefits include:

  • Quicker display of default templates, using the powerful XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Transformations) technology standard.
  • More stable custom templates. When creating custom templates, please follow the new Style Guidelines section on the Designing Templates help page. We expect this to help prevent custom templates from being affected by future changes to the default templates and/or to the Blogit header and footer.
  • Better accessibility and web standards compliance. This is the first step of a long-term goal to make Blogit as accessible and consistent as possible across web browsers on various computers.

Do you have an existing custom template?

 

To minimize display issues for existing custom templates, there is a new “Use old template styles” box on the custom template editing page. This box is checked for existing custom templates.

 

Although this checkbox appears to resolve most issues, some custom templates may require minor changes. If you would prefer to switch to a default template, go to your blog's editing page, click "Change template" and select the default template.

 

 

Regards,
