Adding more styles to your wordpress theme, and why is that “style” highlighted ? Simple : because, this post is about making your blog look more stylish, by adding few more stylesheets ie, style sheets for categories.
I was reading this post fromÂ http://tarskitheme.com about a brilliant plugin : Category Style Sheets. byÂ Benedict Â Eastaugh. Â It is a simple but awesome plugin that allows you to add style sheets for each category of your blog. That means, you can have different background colors, images, link colors etc for individual category archives, and each post in that category.
What I have done, ( So Far )
I have created two style sheets for two of my categories. WordPress & Blogging. I have changed background colors for category archive pages, and individual pots in these two categories. Now, go to any blog post in that category and you will see the plugin in action. I have changed only the background color. Should I try more ? Do you have any suggestion ?
Yes ! that’s right .. this is a new Child theme built using the Hybrid Theme Framework. Oh, Child theme ? If you do not know what it is, read this post from Ian. But wait, who designed this theme, hmmmÂ blame this guy.
Now, if you have read that post from Ian, you will understand how easy it is, to build a powerful theme using the Child theme technique. So, the guy who built this theme did nothing but few css tweaks. The guy who did all the hard work is Justin. Say thanks and congrats to him.
Still, if you want to use this theme, just subscribe to this blog, and the theme will be available for download very soon. Do you like this theme.. ? Do you have any suggestion ?

So, here is another customization of copyblogger theme , but who did it ? hmmm well, I did it …. or, rather, it just happened when I was playing with css and colors. Just have a look and tell me if you liked it. ( Click on the image to zoom in !! )
If any of you guys wants to use it, let me know, I can send you the theme, eventhough it is not ready for a public release. So, if someone wants to use it, I can make few more changes needed, and then send the zip file.
CSS : This word keeps coming back to me these days. Every time I open google.com, I type something related to css there, and browse through result pages.
