Bryan Bell has used his Manila magic to whip up a new theme for me that I’m going to use for the school Web log as Website. (Pay no attention to the content as I’m just playing with this site…) I think it looks pretty great, and it has some unique features that Bryan was able to build in for more flexibility. The background banner image is easy to swap out, the right hand column is a module that is easily edited as are the two modules in the left hand column, and the footer. The main nav bar at the top is a universal image for all pages on the site so if I edit it, it updates on every page.
This comes pretty close to solving the personalization limits that Manila has…I know my students are all trying to find ways to make their own sites more their own. This ought to make that a lot easier. I’m very psyched to start some serious building of the site…FINALLY!
