Why CSS skinning makes sense

With the new "layout switching" feature of antville 1.1 we can switch different single skins or have a complete redesign of the blog within a few secondes. What did not change - for worse - is, that the default skins are not 'open' to CSS customization after all.

Last year i started an experiment: changed the original antville skins to a skinset, that follows the 'MovableType' format rather closely. As a result, you could change the whole blog-appearance with a single click (in the example) to a different look+layout - simply applying a different stylesheet.

look + click the buttons:

I propose to support this feature within the new too - we don't need to take the MT skins, we could do it with our own skinset. But the overall skin composition has to change - completely.

New skinning - test-it !

howto apply the "mms"-layout to your own blog:

  • download this file (mms_download (application/zip, 8 KB) ) to your local harddisk (its name should be "")
  • enter the new skins preview site at: {...your_blog_name...}
  • select the " The layout of" radiobutton
  • "browse" to the just downloaded skin file ("") on your hd (file upload field)
  • hit the "Import" button

a new layout is ready in the "Layouts" listing now

  • set the new layout active

** enjoy!

Update: changed the import-link name
