The template’s history

I created Cordobo Green Park originally for the german news website DyKy. For four month it was in productive use. After some cigarettes and too much coffee I decided to create a new one. The poor little template (it weighs only 96kB) was jammed between some big backups for another two weeks, until I heard it crying and begging: “Give me my honour back! Clean me up! Shave me! Share me!

What would you have done? Right. Here it is. Ready for a second life in freedom!

Best regards and happy days in your Green Park,

  1. Greetings Cordobo

    I love the theme (I am using a slightly diffrent color scheme though) at

    One quick question – When i choose to display the calendar through the sidebar widget it shows a title bar (that I can pout whatever I want in it (ie CALENDAR)) if i do not want to display the title bar is that something I need to change in your theme or with the widget? I’ve searched and I cant seem to find it, the nice thing about the Search box is that it does not include a headline (h3?) right? and thats exactly how I would like the calander too…

    lastly, how would I put a line break at the end of the diffrent sections on the left nav bar? I assume its as easy as adding the br code but I Cant tell where to insert that… Other then those things I could not be more then thrilled with your theme.



  2. Hi Sh4fT!,

    the Blogroll issue is fixed. Happy linking ;)


    @ Robert:

    I haven’t found a way not to display the name of the calendar, the widget always inserts h2 /h2. What do you mean with the white line?

    Best regards,


  3. Hi,

    I really like your theme, so I tried to make it support the Hebrew language.
    This mainly means aligning the texts right and changing the page direction to rtl (right to left).
    However, as I changed the page direction to ltr (direction: ltr; on the body), in IE the page completely freaked out. The center moved a bit left, and whenever I hover over any link that center part of the page jumps completely to the left.

    In firefox it works just fine.

    Any ideas how to get this working?


  4. Comment on my previous post – I mistakenly wrote ltr where it usually meant rtl obviously (which stands for right to left). rtl direction is what causeing the html to go mad.

  5. Hey Cordobo

    Hmm O.k, I might jsut remove the clanedar then, the headline bar just doesn’t fit in with it. For the white line question, I am just talking about dead space…. I got it to work on the right side with playing with KING links and inseting BR into the right areas. I want there to be a blank line at the bottom of the list – instead of it butting right up to the headline bar of the section below it. It looks a bit crowded when they just but it, so by putting a line break there it increases the negative space… I just am not sure if that means editing your theme or the widgets or what…

    Also where is META info stored… if i wanted to add a link to that one?

  6. I don’t have it accessible in a link, but it is easy to see the problem.

    in the css, simply add to the body the direction:rtl

    body {

    direction: rtl;

    And you’ll immediately see the side effect in IE, while in firefox it is working.

    I wasn’t able to overcome them, if you manage to get it working with the rtl then I believe I’ll be able to take it from there as it is mostly aligning the texts and images to the right.

  7. Theme works nicely with Konqueror, one of the better fluid-width examples I’ve seen. I’m gonna see if i can turn it all tech purple. Cheers.

  8. Wonderful template, perfect for my needs. I just have a small problem with XHTML validation. (I didn’t experience this with classic or default template) How do I make this artwork valid ? Help me please… (see below)

    Below are the results of checking this document for XML well-formedness and validity.

    Error Line 62 column 6: document type does not allow element “h2” here; assuming missing “li” start-tag.

    Error Line 75 column 7: document type does not allow element “h2” here; assuming missing “li” start-tag.

    Error Line 87 column 6: document type does not allow element “h2” here; assuming missing “li” start-tag.

    Error Line 101 column 9: end tag for element “li” which is not open.

    The Validator found an end tag for the above element, but that element is not currently open. This is often caused by a leftover end tag from an element that was removed during editing, or by an implicitly closed element (if you have an error related to an element being used where it is not allowed, this is almost certainly the case). In the latter case this error will disappear as soon as you fix the original problem.

    If this error occured in a script section of your document, you should probably read this FAQ entry.

    Error Line 157 column 6: end tag for “ul” which is not finished.

    Most likely, You nested tags and closed them in the wrong order. For example “em”… is not acceptable, as “em” must be closed before . Acceptable nesting is: …

    Another possibility is that you used an element which requires a child element that you did not include. Hence the parent element is “not finished”, not complete. For instance, generally requires a , lists (ul, ol, dl) require list items (li, or dt, dd), and so on.


    Error Line 163 column 3: document type does not allow element “h2” here; assuming missing “li” start-tag.

    Error Line 181 column 4: end tag for “li” omitted, but OMITTAG NO was specified.

    You may have neglected to close an element, or perhaps you meant to “self-close” an element, that is, ending it with “/>” instead of “>”.


    Info Line 163 column 0: start tag was here.
