I made some progress on Cypress for Micro.blog. Learning how to build themes for Micro.blog has been fun. I’m working with Manton on making it available to all Premium users of M.b so keep your eyes open for that. WordPress user? You can purchase Cypress here.

@cdevroe Nice 👍, how easy was it to modify your WordPress theme to micro.blog? I hope you publish your learnings.

@amit There is a learning curve in setting up the proper file names, the syntax, etc. I wouldn't call M.b themes any more or less hard to make than WP themes*. They are simply different.

  • Of course, WP has far more features so there is more to learn there.

@cdevroe That’s great news. Micro.blog needs a “gallery” theme.

@gregmoore I'm hoping to be able to bring the portfolio feature of the theme to M.b. One obvious way, perhaps, is using it's photo features. But I have to learn how best to do that. Thankfully @manton has my back.

@cdevroe A while back, I attempted to build a copy of the photo page Manton created to use as a manual “gallery” page but I ran into too many problems that were much easier to solve on my Blot site.
