By default, b2evolution blogs are displayed using an evoskin.
You can change the skin used by any blog by editing the blog settings in the admin interface.
You can download additional skins from the skin site. To install them, unzip them in the /blogs/skins directory, then go to General Settings > Skins in the admin interface and click on "Install new".
You can also create your own skins by duplicating, renaming and customizing any existing skin folder from the /blogs/skins directory.
To start customizing a skin, open its "
index.main.php" file in an editor and read the comments in there. Note: you can also edit skins in the "Files" tab of the admin interface.
And, of course, read the manual on skins!
b2evolution blogs are installed with a default selection of Widgets. For example, the sidebar of this blog includes widgets like a calendar, a search field, a list of categories, a list of XML feeds, etc.
You can add, remove and reorder widgets from the Blog Settings tab in the admin interface.
Note: in order to be displayed, widgets are placed in containers. Each container appears in a specific place in an evoskin. If you change your blog skin, the new skin may not use the same containers as the previous one. Make sure you place your widgets in containers that exist in the specific skin you are using.
