      Carlos, I can’t tell if this (google) method will work for silverblog. It is the same problem for the High Five theme. I’ve just searched for “High Five css template” on google and I did land on a site where the zip file is available.

      Good luck :-)

  • Bretzel, 29 November 2012

    I took the “High Five” template for my own learning through creating my own family journal. Our family is composed of 4 members – me and my wife (indeed) and two children : our son and our daughter :-) So that theme (colors and arts) is very well balanced between boy and girl, husband and wife. It’s very beautiful :-)

    …Now I have to break the structures into php code and jQuery – that’s my personal project.
    Thank you for your fantastic gifts :-)
