The advantage of Tab Views is that they allow you add more content to your web page whilst occupying less space. If well done they won’t slow down website-browsing.
If you’re using the Ndomche Summary Theme – II Columns for WordPress or Blogger, then the best place to insert this tabbed menu is the header — like on this blog. Don’t bother to contact me for more info.
As I am a lazy person and I think blogging is first and foremost about content and availability, I wanted to re-use as much as possible the good stuff other people have done and then tweak it a bit to fit my needs.
Voilå! YUI autogrid minimal, a WordPress theme based heavily on YUI’s Grids CSS and Base CSS with a few changes to fit the HTML that WordPress creates for you.
Sancta Simplicitas is a WordPress theme that uses YUI CSS utilities: reset, base, fonts, grids. It’s very minimalistic in a sense that it’s pretty much all white and simple. Hence the name. The theme is probably not usable by itself, but it’s a base on top of which you can create your own themes.
When creating a new WordPress theme, people usually take the default Kubrick theme but I personally find Kubrick too much. So Sancta Simplicitas has a very minimal stylesheet and is based on the WordPress classic theme.
The fact that it uses YUI grids makes it trivial to tweak: fixed size vs full width, width of the sidebar, position of the sidebar. Basically right after the there’s this:
<div id=”doc3″ class=”yui-t5″>
Changing the id doc3 to doc, doc2, doc4 or doc5 will give you different widths of the content. The default doc3 is full width. Then changing the class name yui-t5 will give you different position and width of the sidebar. yui-t1, yui-t2 and yui-t3 put the sidebar on the left hand side, yui-t4, yui-t5 and yui-t6 place it to the right. You can go even crazier from here, nesting grids to get a two-column sidebar and so on, it’s really easy with YUI grids and the docs are here.
