Documentation

Here's some documentation to help you learn to best customize and make Cutline your own:

How to Install Cutline

  1. Refresh your blog's templates to the "factory defaults" so to speak. (Use the "Classic Blog" template set)
  2. Navigate to the Styles section under the Design menu.
  3. Add the Cutline Style Library to Style Catcher by cutting and pasting any URL in this blog into Style Catcher.
  4. Movable Type will then download all the necessary files into your installation and allow you to apply Cutline to your blog.

How to Add the Horizontal Nav Strip

Edit the Header template module. Near the bottom, find the HTML that looks like this:

<div id="content">
   <div id="content-inner">

Then insert the following HTML just below it:

<div id="delta">
  <div id="delta-inner" class="pkg">
    <div class="menu">
      <ul>
        <li><a href="<$MTBlogURL$>">Home</a></li>
        <li><a href="<$MTBlogURL$>about.html">About</a></li>
        <li><a href="<$MTBlogURL$>documentation.html">Documentation</a></li>
        <li><a href="<$MTArchiveLink$>">Archives</a></li>
        <li class="rss"><a href="<$MTBlogURL$>rss.xml">RSS</a></li>
      </ul>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>
<div style="clear:both;"></div>

Just a query, but why aren't you using MT4's native handling of pages instead of the hardcoded links?

Personal preference. Since I am dealing with such a small number of pages/links, and because ordering is important to me, doing is manually seemed simple enough.

Hi there!

Loved Cutline when I was using it on WP.com and this week I moved my blog to MT4 on pair Networks and I was thrilled to use Cutline.

I think it broke my blog, though. Strange font sizes and such. When I tried to set a new theme, all stying broke. I'm CSS-less dead in the water now.

Here's the rave I wrote before everything broke, though:
