Bus Full of Hippies for WordPress.com

This skin is for WordPress.com Users. feel free to use this skin ‘as is’. the images are hosted on wordpress.com, so it’s no different than hosting them yourself. If you host your own blog, please get the zipped version of the skin.

Original design by John Oxton
Illustration by Denis Radenkovic
Based on the Textpattern template reworked by Graham Bancroft.


This Sandbox skin is under the same license as the original template:
Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial 2.5.


In order to comply with this license, you must paste the following code into a text widget:

<p><a href="#header">top</a> | Original design by <a href="http://johnoxton.co.uk" title="visit John’s site">John Oxton</a> | Illustration by <a href="http://www.38one.com/">Denis Radenkovic</a> | This design is released under a <a href="http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/2.5/" title="view the licence for this design">Creative Commons licence</a></p>

Note: If you put this text widget in your secondary sidebar, it will display the way it does on this site, as a footer of sorts. All of the widgets in the secondary sidebar will display this way. (Further instructions on widget usage).

Layout: From the Sandbox Skins menu, select “No Stylesheet”.

Logo Image: This design uses a custom image as the header. The image is 200×60 pixels, twice. the two halves of the 400×60 pixel image create the standard and hover states of the logo (mouse over the logo at the top of this page to get an idea of what I mean). To help you out, here is the *.PSD file I used to make this logo. It includes guides to make it easier to line up the two states of the image: Sandbox Logo

after you make your own image, and upload it to your blog, you’ll have to change the CSS file to point to your new image. look for #header h1 a near the start of the file.


the maximum width for images in posts is 375 pixels. anything wider will be squeezed, to prevent the skin from breaking.

John is an excellent designer. almost anything you put in a post will be styled. you can see some of the formatting here, in the HTML templates. Since formatting every post with code to use his <ol class="codesample"> might be a bit tedious, i’ve also added styling for the <pre> element.

    heehee, that’s the plan!
    i’m hoping it makes a nice advertisement for the sandbox as well, since it fits the licensing needs so much better.
