Number 7

I posted another template at http://templates.fogcreek.com/ called Droll.

Wow, you're like a template machine!

One request, though, that might make some of your templates easier to use:  If you could stick all of the color values in variables, and then reference those variables wherever you currently hard-code a color, it'd make it a lot easier for someone to pick up a template, change the colors to something they like, and then dive in to adding content.

Just a suggestion.

Thanks for the suggestion and yes i have thought of that too.

But it would take up much more time to make a template Citydesk ready. Personally i don't mind tweaking around inside a template. I do have the time to make a quick transfer to Citydesk but i don't have the time to do it as you would like to see it.

Yes I agree, that would be great to be able to change colors that easy. Being a novice at HTML when you look at the templates it can get confusing real fast. I know, I am just whinning, sorry.

You can use

to determine color codes online, very handy. If you like to avoid getting into HTML / CSS code to adapt templates, take a look at CityDesk Wizards / Templates at:
