Currently working on a new theme, exclusively for Serendipity, based on tribal art from the Sotho tribe of Southern Africa, but will be 3-4 weeks before I'm ready to let anyone see it.
I might have something like a request. Not for one specific new theme, but I think it would be neat if you could write something like an `Beginners Guide: How to make/modify a theme for Serendipity´
A lot of people (like me) dont have the slightest idea hot to do this. I have very little knowledge of HTML, and dont know anything about PHP or Smarty. The modifications I´ve made for my installation of S9Y very a) very simple and b) done with the trial and error methode. So it would be great to create an Example-Template, and to write down the necessary steps for this. It doesnt have to be a very nice or sophisticated template, its more important to see: What code do I have to put where to get done X or Y?"
I dont have the time today to give an more detailed view of this idea, but I think you get the point. You seem to be the most active person on this board concerning template-creating, and so you seem to be the right person.
Think about it,
P.S. This has been discussed before, but never got any results..
