I thought it would be cool to put together a webcast to show the world how easy it is to make themes for BlogEngine.NET.
In this 25 minute webcast, I'll walk you through everything you need to do to create a new theme for your blog. Following my standard theme making process, I started with a template from oswd.org. This time around, I'm converting a template called Curiously Green by NodeThirtyThree Design. It is a nice theme to demonstrate with as it not super complex and yet has enough interesting parts to show off some of the neat things BlogEngine themes can do.
You can watch the webcast from this link. It is a full screen 1024x768 webcast using flash.
Hopefully, it will be a useful aid in getting started in making themes. In addition, preparing this webcast made me get my act together and finally finish the theme documentation out on the BlogEngine.NET wiki. (Finish is too strong a word, but I've completed a pass through it and it is fairly complete and very useful at this stage.)
Lastly, in the webcast, I promised to make the theme available for download, so if you wanted to get a good look at the theme we did together, you can. You can also feel free to use this theme for your site, if you'd like.
BlogEngine.NET Theme: Curiously Green
Update: Some people are having trouble with the webcast turning red about half way through. I made a Windows Media version and it is available for download here.
