Octopress Themes - Venice Theme

Octopress Venice Theme thumbnail

Venice theme is a theme hand made for Octopress blogging framework. It is compatible with Octopress 2. Updates will be provided from this repository.

Installation

You can choose to install as a Git submodule. Or you can download as a zip archive and copy the files manually.

Install as Git submodule

These instructions will create a git submodule under the .themes/venice directory. From your blog directory, run these commands.

git submodule add git://github.com/octothemes/venice.git .themes/venice

You should then commit the changes.

git add .themes
git commit -m "added venice theme"

Next, you should apply the theme to your blog and generate the stylesheets. Follow the install instructions.

Install from downloaded zip archive

If you are more comfortable with just the theme files, you can download our zip archives from S3.

  1. Once you have downloaded the package, uncompress the archive.
  2. Go to your Octopress blog's directory. There should be a hidden directory called .themes.
  3. Your theme should be a single directory called venice containing the theme files. Copy the venice directory to the .themes directory on your Octopress blog's directory.

Next, you should apply the theme to your blog and generate the stylesheets. Follow the install instructions.

Updating the theme

With Git submodules

From your Octopress blog's directory, assuming your theme directory is called venice.

cd .themes/venice
git pull origin master

Next, you should apply the theme to your blog and generate the stylesheets. Follow the install instructions.

With downloaded packages

It is largely similar to the install process. We want to overwrite the theme with the new files. Lastly, to run install to apply the changes.

  1. Download the new packages from S3.
  2. Once you have downloaded the package, uncompress the archive.
  3. Go to your Octopress blog's directory. There should be a hidden directory called .themes.
  4. Your downloaded files should be a single directory called venice containing the theme files. Copy the venice directory to the .themes directory on your Octopress blog's directory.

Next, you should apply the theme to your blog and generate the stylesheets. Follow the install instructions.

Removing the theme

If you installed as a Git submodule

From your Octopress blog's directory,

Remove the theme entry from the .gitmodules file. The entry should look like this:

[submodule ".themes/venice"]
  path = .themes/venice
  url = https://github.com/octothemes/venice.git

Remove the theme from the .git/config file. The entry should look like this:

[submodule ".themes/venice"]
  url = https://github.com/octothemes/venice.git

Remove the theme files with Git.

git rm  --cached .themes/venice

Your files should be removed. If you want to go back to using the default theme, follow the Octopress default theme install instructions.
