Over the last few days I tried hard to costumize the default theme of pelican and succeeded somewhat. But in the end the inflexibility and the numerous overwrites in the css templates made it a giant timesink.

Thankfully pelican is flexible enough to simply change the layout. So i looked over the available ones and decided to go with pelican-bootstrap3 from http://dandydev.net/ with the cosmo theme.

Nothing is perfect though and I had to change the way the cosmo theme handles tables and I was no big fan of the overwritten link style in the style.css.

Additionally there were some problems with the references towards the iconset which came with pelican-bootstrap3.

But for now I am happy and I think moving was the right choice to save time in the future.
