Your Profile
The header area on Top Dog is all about you, with four great 'sections' that you can use:

  • Profile - Upload your header image and avatar (circle or square) or logo. Add a title and/or subtitle, customize the font, size, color and spacing, and add an introduction to your blog. Easily link to your social networks just by adding the URL.
  • Instagram - Simply link your Instagram account to the theme, and display a beautiful full-screen grid of your latest images, right there on your blog.
  • Tweets - If you have your Twitter account connected to your blog, then you can display your latest tweets.
  • Audio - Add any audio embed code to display it - perfect for musicians to show off your songs, or just share the music you love! You could even use other types of embed code.

You can edit all the names of the sections, and choose whether to use each one or not. There's also a great drop-down menu that allows your visitors to search your blog and navigate your pages, all in one place.

Powerful single column blog
Scroll down, and the header area fades away to reveal a beautiful single column blog. The bold, minimalist layout features large images and text - perfect for everything from photo blogs to longform written content... and everything in between.

Premium Features

As well as Top Dog's unique design and features, the theme comes with our standard set of powerful premium features...

Pagination Modes
When it comes to loading more posts, you have three choices - a sleek 'load more' button, infinite scroll, or standard 'previous/next' pagination.

Fully Responsive + Retina-ready
Top Dog's layout adapts to fill your whole screen with posts - from the smallest mobile or tablet to the largest cinema display… resize your browser and see for yourself!

All Post Types
Top Dog is designed to display all of Tumblr's post types. No matter what type of content you want to publish on your blog, the theme will display it beautifully.

Advanced Photo Options
Take full control over your photos, panoramas and photo set grid posts with lots of built-in options for photographers and portfolios. Top Dog fully supports custom Photoset layouts - the layout you create in the Tumblr post editor is the one you see on your blog! Choose what happens when you click any image type - link to the post, to the image, no link or open a lightbox. Choose your photo set grid spacing, and even use the first image in your photo set as a 'cover' on the home page.

Social Media Links
Just add the full URL to your profiles (e.g. ) to activate the built-in social media icons for Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Website, Google+, LinkedIn, Foursquare, Skype, Email, Instagram, Flickr, 500px, Camera, Eye, Pinterest, Heart, YouTube, Vimeo, eBay, Store, Apple, Google Play, Dribbble, Behance, GitHub, Forrst, Quora, Travel, LastFM, Rdio, Spotify, Soundcloud, and RSS.

Social Media Sharing
Top Dog also features a neat social sharing widget in the footer of each post - allow your visitors to quickly and easily like, re-blog, and share your posts on Twitter, Facebook, Google and Pinterest... you can even turn each network on or off.

Custom Web Fonts
For advanced users, we've built in support for embedding web fonts from services like TypeKit, and Google Fonts. You can paste in your embed code and name your fonts for the main type elements. Read more about this feature here.

In-post navigation
Once your visitors are on an individual post page, they can use simple previous/next post buttons to keep browsing through your posts without going back to the home page - a great to keep them immersed in your blog!

Disqus comments
If you want to enable comments on your blog, just sign up for an account with Disqus, and once you're all set up just paste your Disqus Shortname in to the theme options.

Google Analytics
Support for Google Analytics tracking is built in and ready to go. Just create a new property for your blog in your Google Analytics account, and then paste the Property ID in to the theme options.

Group Blogs
Support for group blogs is built in - if you run a group blog, you can choose to show the author's avatar and name at the bottom of the posts that they create.
