Hi

Anywhere I can lay my hands on themes for RC 2.0 or am I kind of stuck with the three themes which goes with the download?
I have tried a few ment for 1.6 but too many changes between 1.6 and 2.0 makes it a bit difficult (longer than 5 minutes)

Thanks in advance  /Peter

This is one that is newer and updated for 2.0, http://rtur.net/blog/default.aspx

Not sure what you mean by (longer than 5 mins), I use several older themes with 2.0 without any issues.

I came across an 1.6 theme (inove) which looked ok as a starting point but couldn't change the masterpage to adjust for the new location of the login page
Threw all kind of weird stuff at me - after 10 minutes I gave up and jumped back to the standard theme

[EDIT:] BE is quite new to me - I have spend a couple of hours at max - just need to break the ice I suppose :)

I will take the long way home and convert some 2010 weaver theme to my likings
My RC2.0 site is up and running but no posts yet

Changing the login is easy, see here:

I have 3 sites using 2.0 all with older themes without any issues.

Here are two of them:

Hehe sorry I did'nt get it - as you said it's quite easy to upgrade themes
There's a few thing to consider most important is to add the BlogEngine.Core library to the site.master.cs file with a "using" declaration. After this everything went smooth

Thanks a lot :)    /Peter
