Clean theme for sNews 1.7
« on: February 20, 2009, 08:31:26 pm »

Hi folks, this is my third (and personal favorite) sNews theme released publicly so far. It's a lightweight, minimal theme.

I have put up a demo as well to play around with it and see how the comments appear, works fine in IE 5.5 & 6 also.

Read about it and demo it here;

here's a couple of preview thumbs

a little less margin-top on the h1 in the header would work better in FF3, imho.

The word "elegance" is down into the white border and less margin-top fixes it nicely.

Overall, nice design.

That's interesting, doesn't do that for me. Is the "Experience the lightweight elegance!" slogan line wrapping on yours? Perhaps it's the font-size is a smidge too large?

Ah, I bet the font on Ubunutu,  (bitstream sans?) renders just a hair larger than Win/Mac, so it's wrapping inside the logo div. I left about 12px of playing room though, but anyways that's an easy fix, I just changed the logo container div 10px wider and the pages navigation div 10px shorter.

That's for pointing it out.

Great theme mdj.

Rui just got me going with sNews.

Installing your theme was so straight forward I managed to do it without asking for help.

It's nice!
