Shady contains two themes for Movable Type: a blog and a photo gallery.
This is an old theme — my first, in fact — originally developed for a client in 2007(?), I believe. It surely contains lots of old and outdated methods, though I have begun updating some of that (example: making better use of Config Assistant and Theme Manager’s capabilities).
Create blog(s) and specify the Config Directives, then visit the main blog’s documentation for more details on set up (found at Design > Theme Dashboard > Documentation).
Create a new blog with the “Shady Theme Pack (Blog)” template set. Optionally, also create a new blog with the “Shady Theme Pack (Photo Gallery)” template set.
Add the following config directives to
MainBlogID [blog ID] PhotoGalleryBlogID [blog ID]
PhotoGalleryBlogID is optional, and is only needed if you’ve created a
photo gallery blog. Of course,
[blog ID] should be replace with the ID of
- Movable Type Pro
- Categories By Date
- Config Assistant
- More Custom Fields
- Peak Categories
- Theme Manager
- Widget Set CF
Optional, but useful plugins:
Movable Type versions: 4.3
