Template Changer Beta

We've created a new tool that will help new users pick a new look for their blogs called the UThink Template Changer (beta). With this tool UThink users can easily change the look of their blogs using a wide variety of blog designs. To access the tool simply login to your UThink blog, click "Templates" in the left hand menu of the administration inteface, and then click the button at the top that says "Try the New UThink Template Changer Beta!"

Please note: it is not recommended that you use this tool if you have already made changes to any of your templates besides the Stylesheet Template. The Template Changer will erase any modifications you've made to your templates, including any links that you've added to the Main Index Template. Please use this tool with caution! For example, if you have added links to your Main Index Template and you'd still like to use the Template Changer, you could copy your links and then paste them into your new templates. The Template Changer will not erase posts or entries, categories, or anything besides the templates.

If you haven't made any changes to your templates, or if you are not interested in keeping the changes you've made to your templates, then give the Template Changer a try. There are about 15 designs to choose from and more on the way.

Lastly, if you have skill as a designer please consider creating some new templates for UThink and the Template Changer. Hopefully as time goes on we can have a whole bunch of templates for people to choose from.
