This was a hell of a ride, Thanks for sharing. How do you achieve the status bar styling?


I used something like

<progress max=xx value=xx> </progress>

And I added css styling for it.

可以吧 我编程基础其实很差

how it currently looks on mobile


Great, will play around with that, thanks!

This is so beyond my skill level that I’m having an hard time grasping how you managed to implement so many things in such a cool way.

If I may ask, I’m particularly interested in one thing: how did you manage to arrange elements horizontally instead of vertically?

For example in your moc section:

By looking at the code,

I really have no clue what to search for.

In any case, thanks for sharing this well designed idea

you can have a look at the settings in the css file in which list view is set to be “flex”


Thank you very much! I’ll experiment with it as soon as I can

Hey I realy like this Homepage. Played a bit around with it and extracted what I could get use out. However i noticed that the “Homeapge settings.css” dectivates the preview when hovering over a link. That makes sense on the actuall Homepage, but in almost every other note I’d prefer having that preview. Is there a way to only deactivate the hover on the Homepage?

One other question is about the profile-picture in the top right of the homepage. I noticed that this grabs the picture from the internet. Is there any way to make it so, that it grabs the image from a local folder in the Vault, so that it would work on mobile as well as on the PC? Or is the only way to achive that over the web?

Thank you for the great work. Realy enjoying the new homepage :slight_smile:

Haven’t thought about a way around it. You can either disable hovering globally or just don’t disable it.

As for the profile picture, yes there is a way for embedding local picture. You can try dragging a local picture into an explorer and copy its address. To have the link work on both PC and mobile I still recommend finding an image cloud online.

However, there is another thing which I honestly prefers over the profile picture right now. That is, using icon provided by banners. It looks something like this which is imo more aesthetically pleasing to the eyes.

Surely you can disable banners still. I find banners out-of-place in some of the dark themes.

Sometimes I put the clock on top of my homepage. It also looks nice.

Hi there,

I love your homepage! I was wondering if you could help me with an issue in the multi-column admonition blocks…

I’m planning on a much simpler dashboard that works in Live Preview, hence I love the multi column Admonition blocks to Mae use of the width of the page. But they show up strangely in Live Preview and are not aligned. In Reading mode, they lose text as well… here are some pics to illustrate, as I am note sure if it is my set up, or the CSS (I am using the Minimal theme, by the way).

What I am looking for is effectively something like your Map fo Contents, but inside an Admonition block (as it renders in Live Preview).

the code in the editor:

Live Preview (mis-aligned in both blocks, but showing all items):

Preview/Reading Mode (aligned in the bottom block, but missing items in the top block):

Any ideas what might be causing this, and how to fix this?


EDIT: Ps if there was a way to get rid of the COL2 title, that would also be awesome! :star_struck:

I think you are not using the admonition flex view properly. With the css file set up the admonition titles should be automatically hidden. Are you sure you included cssclass: myhome in yaml?

To get them aligned you can try ad-flex, another built in admonition flex view in Blue Topaz theme. However, it’s limited to two columns currently. You have to edit the css file yourself for more columns.

Yes, I did, though I did leave the colour on, which I think was part of the issue, however, the columns are still not aligned. It works in Blue Topaz, but only if the lists are all the same length.

How do I use flex view properly?

What triggers a new column? Is it a heading, or a paragraph? or a list item?

I’m using the Minimal theme, but the same happens in the default Obsidian theme.

The untouched Homepage you kindly provide:

Col2 with two dataview queries separated by a live 3 header (Week 2 Tasks and Today +7):

Nested Admonition lists of differing lengths:

EDIT: The nested admonitions align themselves when I go to Reading Mode! However, the 2 Dataview queries (and your embedded pages) are still like in the picture (as opposed to having query 1 (Week 2 tasks) on the left, and query 2 (Today +7) on the right)

Any chance you could provide the Study Dashboard as well? It looks great!

I’m using ad-flex with the study homepage. You can check out its css in Blue Topaz css file.

As you’ve pointed out, the ad-col2 are not designed to align each element, instead allowing them to flow freely between the two columns. So for alignment you either have to edit the css yourself or use the ready-made ad-flex.

cssclass: noyaml myhome
banner_x: 0.5
banner_y: undefined

For blank background you can try to check 3.1.2 admonition support in Style Settings plugin for Blue Topaz. I should’ve included the css parts in my snippet. Not sure why it doesn’t work with yours
