Useful Stuff for Building SharePoint Themes

Thanks to all who came to my session at MIX on doing great Theme design for SharePoint.

I promised I’d post up some bits after the session so here they are.

I showed some useful snippets in the session. These were used when we created our Feature Receiver.

These two snippets basically create the code required to add our theme into and take it out of the SPThemes.xml when we install and uninstall the feature..

The Macro I showed for creating the 12 Hive structure in VS.NET is in this post here.

I mentioned Heather Solomon’s CSS Reference Guide for SharePoint here.

I also talked about the March CTP of VSeWSS 1.3 and a pack of 10 Themes for SharePoint that we’ve put together. Both are linked to from a post by Paul Andrew- his blog is well worth having in your RSS reader.

I think that’s about it. If I promised anything else please let me

Nice presentation on themes.

I tried to download the 'Snippets' and it said it couldn't be found :(

Hi,

Thanks again for a great session at Mix! I was the guy asking all the questions at the end :-)

One question that I forgot to ask was: if you create a site collection and apply the theme, does that theme automatically apply to all sub-sites created or does that have to be done manually?

Also, I was wondering if you've had a chance to ask your designers where they get their SharePoint insight and knowledge?

Thanks!
