WordPress Template

I submitted the “Pink Lilies” template for WordPress CSS Style Competition.
I usually blog in Japanese so I set up this English page to say a few things to people who downloaded the template from alexking.org.

Pink Lilies, WordPress theme by Naoko McCracken

Please feel free to tweak with it. It’s kind of girly with flowers and pinks, but if you take out the background images and replace with a solid color or other image, you can change the whole impression.

I am distributing the template under a GPL license, so that’s how I want it to be used (I just followed the instruction…). A link to ja.naoko.cc (Japanese only) or naoko.blog (English, here) would be nice, too.

I am in the process of learning CSS. If you find any bugs or mistakes on my template, please let me know.

Now, have fun 🙂

    Hello there! Damn this is some nice work you have done! I like it a lot (Even do pink isnt my color :)) Great work! I am in love with it 😀

    Thanks Johan!!
    (I can’t get to your web site though…)

    I used to think I will never like pink so much either, but for some reason I tend to use the color very often. Glad you liked it.

    Hi Nao. I love it! I’ve looked at all the entries and it’s my favourite so I’m going to use it, but will probably tweak it if that’s ok. Thanks anyway!

    sorry for stupid question at first..but since i’m not good at html so could u just make a template instead of style sheet? coz i still dont know how to apply the nice template to my wp. thanks.

  7. Nao Avatar

    tintin, using alternative stylesheet is easier than applying template (I think).

    Alex has nice WP Style Switcher on his site, it might be easier if you use it (Just follow its README file).

    I should probably post step-by-step instruction, but until then, feel free to ask me any question. Good luck 🙂

    Tintin, I’m glad you were able to make it work. Thanks for making me realize that I should post something about how to use the template. I’ll do that when I find time…

    Indeed, Pink Lilies is awesome. I really like it. It reminds me of .. how do you call the art to arrange flowers in japanese? Ikebana??

  17. Nao Avatar

    Yes, “Ikebana” is the right word for the Japanese art of flower arrangement. I used to take an Ikebana class in high school….

  18. Layout dan pengisian
    Berhubung gue tidak punya waktu (baca: teu bisaeun) untuk mempercantik si katro ini, gue comot layout dari tante Nao saja. Kalau ada yang mau ngulik, dipersilakan banget. Mungkin banyak fungsi2 yang belum jalan dengan ocreh, diperbaiki kali lain saja …

    No, Pink Lilies is not 1.5-ready.
    Here’s a link if you are looking for how to make 1.2 template into 1.5 theme. (I should do the work but until then you can take a look)

    Hi, Could you help me figure out how to add your beautiful pink lilies style sheet to blogger? Word Press is proving most difficult.

    Pink Lilies ScreenshotI had a special request from another user of Serendipity for a more feminine looking template, and the Pink Lilies port is my first contribution. I plan to release a few other themes that are softer, less businesslike, and dare I …
