Customization of a page was never easier. Mark Newhouse of iBook, iMac, iBlog, has come up with this really cool way of skinning the blog using CSS via a nifty adaptation of a script by Porter Glendinng. Now if we could mix this concept with Jason's modification via cookies, you'd get a skinnable site rather than a skinnable page using just CSS and Javascript. [Found the site via Zeldman]

Oops! It should be Glendinning and not Glendinng.

  • You know, I really am proud to have coined the phrase "skin the blog" (or, in the progressive aspect, "skinning the blog"), which I used on NUblog last month, where I copped to its inspiration: Haiku the Blog. The only other neologism of mine that's remotely caught on is icebike.
  • Prolific ("She Logs for Europe") recently wrote about how " toys with templates." Coincidence, or Chariots of the Gods?
  • Am I the first contributor to Metafilter to use

Wow. That last LI looked fine in the preview (which I checked six times).

Joe, I picked up the phrase from your site, and it's a modified version of my skin that you are currently using. :)
