Textpattern Interface Re-Styled

During the process of building my site in Textpattern 4.0.4, I came across a redesigned interface package at a site called Empty Spaces. I was inspired by what they did and started playing around with the css. One thing led to another and several days later I ended up with this.

Note: This interface restyling has been updated to work with TXP 4.0.5.
(special thanks to Azuntik for making some edits to get things lining up properly for 4.0.5)

Included in the download is a version of the interface for both Textpattern 4.0.4 and 4.0.5

Note: This re–styling made significant use of the modified interface package available at Empty Spaces. Thank you for all your hard work!

Hi Kuswanto,

Happy to share, glad you like it.


The info page seems to be down… the file is still up, though.

Hey this is great, its seems there have been a few attempt at restyling the admin but you seem to have done it in a real slick style. THANKS!!!

This interface restyling does not work properly in TXP 4.05. I have noticed some minor layout problems.

Unfortunately, I don’t have time to make any adjustments right now, and thought I should inform you if you intend to, or are using Textpattern 4.05.

The major part of what makes and open source project great is the community that gets involved and volunteers their time and talent to make it better. If you have the time and would like to adjust this interface to work properly in TXP 4.05, many people would appreciate it.



I updated your interface to work with 4.0.5—you can find it here:




I fixed the problem with the search box not wanting to center. The form tag originally looked like this:

form action=“index.php” method=“post” style=“margin: auto; text-align: center;”

When TXP was updated to 4.0.5, it changed to this:

form method=“get” action=“index.php” class=“search-form”

The difference that definitely makes a difference. So I styled it in the textpattern.css file and all now appears to be well.

Feedback is always appreciated!





Thank you so much for your time and effort to make the interface compatible with version 4.05

Cheers, :)


Hey Dan,

I posted an update for 4.0.6
