I pushed an update for the CityGrid WordPress Directory Plugin earlier today. I finished porting over the changes to the CityGrid WordPress Search Plugin as well.
Both my WordPress plugins had a pretty basic look and feel, I wanted them to look better. So using the HTML and CSS template I borrowed from CityGrid I added it to both of the CityGrid WordPress Plugins to make them look sharper.
So now both the CityGrid WordPress Directory Plugin and CityGrid WordPress Search Plugin have a default UI template, as well as the ability to switch it and make it look like CityGrid.com.
Next I’m going to add another template or two, then start extending the functionality of each template, allowing WordPress site owners to have as much flexibility when deploying business search or directories using CityGrid Places API.
I wrote about using the Twitter Bootstrap framework for building local applications last week.
When you are building your application, the default set of styles may not be have exactly the fonts, colors and other characteristics you are looking.
To help you in your development, I found the Twitter Bootstrap Generator, that you can use to quickly choose colors, fonts and other styles your looking.
Another time saving tool to help you rapidly build local web applications.
