How to create a Roller 4.0 theme, part 2


Thanks for the quick little guide, it is appreciated! I am currently just starting out with roller to eventually deploy as my main blog application of choice. Roller 4.0 is a nice release with just the things I'm looking for, where it can only get better. Cheers... I look forward to the guide for creating templates from scratch in its final form.

Very good example for starting theme customization ( at least for me ) :)

can get my theme into roller interface. restart , delete, restart tomcat, deploy, etc. i don't know what else to do. and i did everything you wrote in this howto. i even added that line to roller-custom properties. i feel sad the only thing i did not was to include a preview. i excluded that element from the file theme.xml. could that be cause?

I'd like to thank you for your excelent manual for creating a new theme. Using it I achieve to create my templates, but I have a problem with it: I don't know how to include sidebar and permalink templates in my created weblog and day ones. I'd appreciate your help so much.

Problem solved. Just added <div id="sidebar-a"> #includeTemplate($model.weblog "sidebar") </div> and roller makes its magic. Thanks too much for all!

Do i have to use the velocity engine to create a Template isn't there a way to integrate Roller into a JSP?

Hi! Excelente manual. I'm aware that this blog is from along ago, but i'm just starting to use roller. I was wondering if i could instead of listing the categories that i have, use images that i design to link them to the categories. I'm not really sure on how to this, if you could give a hint about this topic i'll appreciate very much. Thank You.
