e textEditor: Exporting Themes

If you like e textEditor and are looking for a way to edit your theme like me, you might be somewhat frustrated with the available documentation. The default theme files are stored inside of “C:\Program Files (x86)\e\Themes\” (nix the x86 for xp or vista/7 32 bit). However, after you edit a theme you’ll find that those file are exactly the same – there have been no updates or changes! So how does E-textEditor know about / save your changes? Answer: A local preference file is stored in your Application Data folder. This is also a .tmTheme file, and should be located in the following directories: vista/7: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\e\Themes xp: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\e\Themes You can also remove the files stored in this directory to reset your themes back to the default. Try checking out Blackboard.tmTheme for a nice try at a darker theme.

WordPress gets a new default theme

WordPress is working on a new theme for 2010, called “Twenty Ten” http://2010dev.wordpress.com/ The new theme supports a lot of built in options for customizing the banner, background, and typefaces. Kubrik was a great starting place for a lot of <= 2.8 themes, but with 2.9 and 3.0 coming out, it’s time to embrace the upgrade. Go WordPress team!
