Theme modification options (Urgent help)

  1. Hi,
    I am using wordpress and am interested to integrate the option to let the user edit the template. Is there any plugin or mod for this.
    http://binarybonsai.com/wordpress/k2/ is providing user to edit the template. Can we integrate that or wordpress is having of its own.

    Thanks in advance.
    DevFast.

  2. If you host your own site, you should ask at the WordPress.org forum:

    http://wordpress.org/support/

    Blogs at WordPress.com run under a different software.

  3. Yeah,
    I host my own site and using wordpress for blogging.

  4. I need the mod for customising templates using admin panel.

  5. The only way we with our free blogs can cutomize our templates is if we buy the CSS upgrade. But if you host your own site, you should ask at the WordPress.org forum and not here at the WordPress.com forum.

  6. ok,

    Thanks a lot nosysnoop.

  7. http://wordpress.org/support/topic/96086?replies=2 I query goes with the similar theme.

  8. Need help urgently.

  9. we cannot help you. you need to ask in http://wordpress.org/support or http://getk2.com/forum

    if you're trying to get an options panel on wordpress.com, that's not possible with the version of k2 we have here.

    Unlike devfast I see that you do have a wordpress.com blog and as I have visited I noticed it was titled "Beginner's Blog".
    I'm sorry but you cannot edit your template here and you cannot use javascript at all. It's important to warn you that although some themes at wordpress.org and wordpress.com may appear to be the same they are not. At wordpress.com we are on a shared multiuser blogging platform and we are not allowed to alter our templates for security reasons. Likewise we cannot use javascript, iframes, some media embeds and styles, etc. http://faq.wordpress.com/2005/09/27/edit-my-templates/
    This explains is greater detail why javascript is stripped.

    Basically if you do not wish to use one of the themes made available at wordpress.com through your admin section ->Dashboard -> Presentation -> Themes then you have two options. The choice you make may depend on the differences between css customizing a wordpress.com theme or moving to self hosting or a web host and altering a free wordpress.org template. Hopefully this information below will be useful.

    (1) The please read me first before posting pink sticky at the head of the forum outlines the differences between wordpress.com blogs and wordpress.org blogs which are on different code bases http://wordpress.com/forums/topic.php?id=3700&replies=1

    (2) css upgrade of wordpress.com blog
    http://wordpress.com/blog/2006/08/04/custom-css/ The 15$ is just to alter the appearance of your theme and not the underlying php code. Purchasing the upgrade entitles you to edit CSS on one blog for one year.

    The CSS Editor does not let you edit any particular theme stylesheet; rather, it keeps the theme intact and lets you edit a brand new stylesheet. Because your custom CSS is loaded after the theme's CSS, your style rules can override or add to the existing rules.

    You can use CSS to improve on any existing theme; you can define your own classes for use in posts; you can select the Sandbox theme and build on one of the Minimalist layouts or opt for no stylesheet and do it all yourself. If you decide to upgrade and undertake css customization these threads may be helpful.

  11. Hi
    Thanks for reply. One of my friend is running blog is his own site and he is using wordpress (version 2.0) and he is also allowing users to run their own blog. He wants to allow users to edit the template the way Blogsome allows. Is there any mod or this is their own development.

  12. You'll have to ask that over at http://wordpress.org. We're running different software here and can't answer that question.

  13. Thanks a lot for your response.
