How to create a CSS Toolshed submission – step by step

Friday, December 2nd, 2005 at 12:54 am

It has been quite a while since I started the CSS Toolshed, and I expected a lot of submissions after hundreds of people downloaded the templates, but now – more than two weeks later – I only got one good submission to show.

OK, I get the message: I cannot expect developers to work in conditions like these to submit something for a project they don’t get any money from. It is frustrating enough having to deal with these at work, but at least there is a paycheck in it.

So, to make it a bit easier, I updated the templates pack to include

  • all the necessary images
  • more templates containing almost all elements of the building block gallery
  • pre-defined CSS selectors with all the content elements

As the pièce de résistance, I created a new demo design called Happy Cock and wrote down what I was doing while developing it.

So if you need to get an insight as to how to create a CSS Toolshed entry (or simply a flexible CSS layout) go and read:

Hopefully this will help the toolshed get some more submissions, I’d hate simply to let it die…
