I’d just like to say a big thanks to Mike Cherim, author of the Seabeast theme that I’m using. It’s been customised a fair bit to suit myself, and in some places I’ve gone beyond the customisations he recommends, so any problems are very much likely to be entirely my own fault, rather than his.

It’s also not finished yet: you can probably see the Blogger’s Farbar part obviously needs updating – unless of course you’re looking at this post after I’ve done it; I also want to tweak the images to bring a bit more colour and slightly less white onto the page. I then need to finish sorting out my category list, update it properly and start the process of transferring all my previous entries.

But I’ll come back to Seabeast: it’s a lovely theme, it does pretty much what I want and it’s sufficiently well customised that I’ve been able to tweak it to suit what I want without too much difficulty. So thanks again, Mike.

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.

    Very pro mods you’ve done Jack. This is definitely the best theme modification I’ve seen. I’ve added it to the Theme Showcase. You’re such a mad scientist :D

    Note: You might want to look at the stats, they don’t seem to be recording past 2. Maybe it’s the recording file’s permissions?

    Aw shucks ’twas nothing. Glad you liked it. I’ve been toying with the ‘web chemist’ idea for some time, particularly as it would give me the opportunity to include a picture of my favourite molecule as a css background.

    I obviously tinkered around with the fonts, because that’s always a fairly simple way to create a new look, and then I needed to change the colours so it felt like it was my theme (I know you’ve done all of the hard work, but it’s the little changes to re-order things, adding some additional content and sorting out the colours that gives me a sense of ownership too).

    The colours were more of a problem, because I was orginally going to go for blue borders but frankly that looked awful so I gave up on that sharpish. Then I had my doubts about the pinky background, worrying how it would score on the butchometer/campometer, but I don’t think it looks out of place, and it all seems to fit quite nicely together to me. So yes, I like it – and I’m glad you think so too!
