Hello all,

Firstly, this is a great effort. Thank you for this.

Here is what i want to do and i need suggestions/corrections.

I want to learn HTML5 and i also have to make my blog. Instead of coding all the blog i found this and it is great. Now, i want to customize my blog to give a look that i want. Following is the link to the template in flash. I want to use HTML5,CSS 3 to get as close as possible.

Can i customize BlogEngine this much ? what about future enhancements ?

I am a Software Engineer and feel myself comfortable in ASP.Net. So coding is not a big problem. So can i customize this to give the look i want ??


Thank you in advance.

Should be possible

Focus on getting the masterpage/css right and you also need to create some of your own widgets (lists to the right of the screen) to get the look and feel you want
Next is diplaying post in a different form - hence the "more" funtionality
BE has a similar function/tag but not displayed as sofisticated as in your sample
And finnaly tamper with the code if needed :-)
