Deprecated: Slave - a simple blog theme

Please now use the Slim blog themes which are much improved versions of Slave.

Slave Theme, Demo Site and Download

A live site using a more cheerful version of the theme.

Now available on GitHub

A simple blog with a home page with links to articles. That’s it. There cannot unknowingly be duplicate content. (A big THANKS to Oleg for some code that trims the URL of possible duplicate pages). Please test if you can create a duplicate content list or page. If you can please let us know.

I’ve used images that are dark but the mood soon changes with new images. Colours are easily changed too – all gathered together at the end of the stylesheet.

One plugin used: wet_haystack to extend search to excerpts, custom fields and categories.

I hope someone finds it useful.

Wow, two from you in rapid succession! And, a nice idea with giving each a theme within the theme, however “grim” :-)

Thanks jakob, there probably won’t be any more for a while, I’ve been doing far too much sitting down working on these. I feel for all those people who spend years sat at desks, kind of enslaved. I hope the whole Textpattern team are getting plenty of exercise and not getting too obsessed with coding and designing. You’re all doing a great job with Textpattern, it just gets better, but don’t burn out!

question. your slave theme when downloaded has a Slave dir within the main Folder Slave. I get errors about not being able to read Files dir.

should there be two Slave Dirs?

Edit :

cannot read from directories/files /home/bide/apps/nae/themes/slave/manifest.json.

Hi bici, did you check the permissions?

The README-instructions.txt explains more but the structure of the zip doesn’t exactly mimic a Txp file structure.

  • The images are uploaded, in order, into your database.
  • The /css directory goes in your site root.
  • The slave directory from inside the archive goes inside /themes for you to import from the Presentation>Themes panel. And you need to set correct permissions so it can be read/write to the server.

Re: Deprecated: Slave - a simple blog theme

Thanks for answering Bloke.

Bici, I think you meant there were two Images folders? I mistakenly put an Images folder (with images from gud.one) inside the Slave folder. As Bloke says the Slave folder should be uploaded to the Themes directory. So just ignore or delete the images folder that is within it.

Re: Deprecated: Slave - a simple blog theme

Sorry for the confusion, thanks bici for finding the error. There’s now a corrected slave.zip to download from the demo site.

Unfortunately the instructions are quite long, but you need to follow them for the theme to work as expected.

Re: Deprecated: Slave - a simple blog theme

I’m going to suggest a rename of this theme to something less charged, especially given this year’s events. Additionally, a more appropriate demo site header image is in order.
