Retro Theme for Runway

This is a simple package that installs the "Retro" theme for Runway, which won the Skin/Theme competition at the Umbraco conference "CodeGarden10"

For this package to work you must have Runway installed.

This package simply replaces the stylesheet that comes with runway and adds a sub directory in the CSS folder called retro-theme which contains the images used for the theme.

Please note this simply overwrites the CSS file that comes with Runway, so when uninstalling this package it removes the runway.css file

The theme was created with CSS and images only and no XHTML markup is modified from the default Runway site.

Some features of the CSS file include:

  • CSS :before and :after to insert images into the DOM
  • CSS @font-face using google's web fonts - http://code.google.com/webfonts
  • CSS webkit animation to animate the background
  • CSS nth-child(odd) and nth-child(even) to give the <p> different colours

Please note this is NOT a serious theme from me, and is more of a joke however it does show you can achieve ugly theme/skins as well as beautiful ones.
