Have just finished (well, nearly) putting this together for a friend. Styled off Custom Skin. Ive enjoyed getting to know 3.x doing this. Im not completely sold but it has some great tricks.

Friend is your classic nutty, creative type and a great writer. The blog suits him.

A blank page is certainly nutty and creative :D

You got a 404 ?

Damn, I was hoping it was just my browser / computer / something noone else would experiance. Refreshing gets there in the end :-/ .

I'll instead blame his host? What else? Cant be B2 because it has done the same with 2 different versions. Will have to fix it.

if you add "index.php" to the end then it works ... might be worth looking into your htaccess ;)

I've considered that except it has done it from the beginning, before and after .htaccess was uploaded. But, yes, i'll have a look. Has driven me n-a-n-a-s.

Might be worth creating one with :

# DEFAULT DOCUMENT TO DISPLAY:
# this will select the default blog template to be displayed
# if the URL is just .../blogs/
<IfModule mod_dir.c>
	DirectoryIndex index.php index.html
</IfModule>

It already has that. Problem isnt just when trying to go to base URL, happens constantly regardless of where you're going of what you're doing.
The base URL is especially temperamental though.

I'd need shedloads of user/pass details off you to have a remote chance of sorting that out

and time ... I'd need time, although the weather's currently in your favour ;)

Wondeful :D

Happy to provide whatever you need.
Can PM them to you?

Jun 06, 2009 17:36

Feel free to PM them, no promises though ;)

I don't think it's a "blog" thing either .... mind you, I'm not the worlds most accoladed thinker :roll:

8| :) :p

Really?

What strings did you pull?

Jun 07, 2009 08:16

I corrected your non-www redirect in htaccess and increased the memory limit in b2evo ( conf/_advanced.php )

My latest effort, not starting a new topic for it because it isnt deserving but...

B2evo 3.2x as a website - http://www.sunflowersheds.co.nz/index.php

No hint of "blog" anywhere. Small and bright!
The requested colour scheme has done my head in on this, and I don't know what sunflowers have to do with sheds but there you go. Im also struggling for ideas on how to make the side bar more interesting so eagerly awaiting bolt of lightening on that one.

I used b2evo for this wanting a site the owners could primarily manage on their own.

@GigaBob
Love the header and background.

Re the sidebar...
try editing
#sidebar ul.sidemenu li
and add background:#f28000; plus play with the right margin a bit.

Quick way to give it a lift.

Jun 18, 2009 10:03

Thanks :)

You mean right margin on the sidebar?

The sidebar background is currently one bg image on top of another.
Will see what I can do.

Nb. there is a slight difference in the background colour of the "posts" between IE and Firefox. Looks better in IE.

From

#sidebar ul.sidemenu li {
	margin: 20px 0px 0px 20px;
	border: 0px;
	font-size: 1em;
	font-weight: bold;
}


to...

#sidebar ul.sidemenu li {
       background:#F28000;
	margin: 20px 20px 0px 20px;
	border: 0px;
	font-size: 1em;
	font-weight: bold;
}
