All-in-one Page Theme #1 by raiidens
A page theme to match the blog theme! Or to use without the blog theme. Or to just play with the heart on the preview, that works too.
Page themes are more difficult to customize than blog themes since you have to go into the code to do it, so I made a customization guide for this page as well. Please refer to it if you’re not sure what to do. I made a bunch of comments in the code to guide you too.
Static preview + install | Customization guide
Ver. 1.00
Features:
  • About, FAQ, links, & blogroll tabs
  • Can change the character image
    • 200px x 200px
  • It’s like a moving heart simulator and that’s pretty cool

Please:
  • Leave the credit or move it somewhere else visible
  • Edit as much as you like
  • Show me what you’ve done with it!

Hi! How did you install the custom fonts on your themes? Because I can never get those to work.

basically you have to upload these font files to dropbox and then insert it in a code, which usually looks like this: 

@font-face​ {
font-family:"arial";
src:url('URL OF FONT HERE');
}

a dropbox link would look like this:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/l395est1rjvvz54/Mayton.ttf?dl=0

but what you do is you change that to dl.dropboxusercontent.com like so (don’t forget to remove the “www” and “?dl=0″ parts):

@font-face​ {
font-family:"mayton";
src:url('https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/l395est1rjvvz54/Mayton.ttf');
}

then put that code somewhere in your css, and when you want to use it just put the name of the font where you want to have it. ( ex. font-family: ‘arial’; ). you can find a few examples here of some ready-to-use codes for font faces. 

REMEMBER THOUGH: you need to make sure that the fonts you want to use in particular are available for use; read the copyrights and licenses that each fontmaker provides and follow that. if they’re available for personal use and you just wanna use it for your own blog and nowhere else, then go for it but if you want to distribute them (i.e. include them in a theme you want to release) you have to read through it and see if the maker allows you to redistribute it. if they don’t allow it, don’t use it. this is just so you can avoid any legal issues and it’s basic courtesy/respect to the original creator. i’ve seen so many people host fonts or reupload them to share but not a lot of people keep this in mind. hope this helps!

I'm not sure if you've ever answered this question, but where do you find your backgrounds for your themes? They're always so on point and goes so well with the themes.

first of all thank you so much !! i answered something like this right here, but to add to that i really just search things that i feel would match the certain aesthetic i have in mind, like “versailles photography” or “french village countryside”, and if it’s on google i always use the search tools to show only the images bigger than 1600px so it’s at the best quality possible when i edit it on photoshop ( which is rly just me slapping on a psd and maybe sharpening/softening it ). hope this helps babe !

A theme that would make it easy to show off at least 3 characters at the beginning of the page?Like photos you can add to the theme or something

Check out these themes, you can show off who you most need in the sidebar. Most allow at least three characters and you can add more in the code - though don’t go overboard.

Hello! I have a blog that needs a character page, but I also have 16 characters (more coming soon, quite possibly!) Do you have any character page recommendations that might work for this?

Hi; I'm waaay to shy to ask this off anon, and I figured this was the best place since this /is/ your theme blog :3 But I was wondering if you could share how the container code works? Or make a base of it to work on like the your theme 'Worthy?' If not, that's okay~ <3

Hello anon…

*Deep Breath*

Okay, here goes…

You can turn pretty much any theme into a ‘container’ style theme… what you need to do is have a bit of a fiddle around with the CSS for the post styling.  If you squint carefully you’ll see that the post styles are the same in both my ‘O’ Death’ and ’Worthy’ themes.  And really they were only a slight rejig of some of the coding and layout for things like links and graphics and ‘next page’ buttons, etc.

So… Onto the coding…

Here is the code I used for the posts for the ‘normal’ ( O’ Death ) theme

#posts {
    background-color:{color:background};
    width:400px;
    padding:10px;
    margin-left:0px;
    padding-bottom:30px;}

And here is the coding for the ‘container’ ( Worthy ) theme;

#posts {
    position:relative;
    background-color:{color:background};
    width:450px;
    height:420px;
    top:170px;
    padding: 20px;
    margin-left: 55px; 
    overflow-y:scroll;
    overflow-x:hidden;
    border:1px solid {color:border};}

You would normally use this in conjunction with a ‘container’ or ‘content’ section in the CSS just to actually position the posts on the page.  And the ‘posts’ CSS is how you actually position and style the posts within that container.

The main thing you’re adding to the ‘posts’ CSS though, is a ‘height’ restriction.  In this case the maximum height of the container is 420px.  And to make sure it doesn’t just show the first 420px of your posts, but knows to add in a scroll bar - you need to add in the overflow instructions.  The rest is mainly positioning, padding ( how much space you want around the side of your posts ), a border ( just to fancy it up a bit O_O )…

If you want to turn another theme into a ‘container’ style theme, just try adding a ‘height’ restriction and the overflow to the posts CSS in the code ( but make sure to save your code first before you do! ) - and you might have to mess around a little with margins and padding to line things up to your liking, but that’s really all it is.

As a caveat to that - please - PLEASE - make sure that the theme maker is okay with you altering parts of the CSS/any of their code - check their rules or terms of use before you do!  And also PLEASE do not remove their credit.  Tweaking a theme is not the same as making one from scratch, just because you added a container, doesn’t make it ‘your theme’!

If this doesn’t help and you would still like a base code to work from, then just let me know and I will see what I can do…. 

Thank you for the question!

Sometimes I feel like theme makers have no rights.

Why? Let’s see, theme makers generally have to:

  • answer things in their inbox politely on a regular basis
  • fix bugs on their coding as soon as possible
  • post codes on a regular basis (before people start going into the inbox and demand that they do so)
  • do all of this, as well as juggling whatever commitments they have in real life, such as studying, or having a job, or actually having a life.

In addition, here is a general process that goes behind making a theme:

  1. Plan the theme. Draw inspiration from various places, make sure you’re original enough, or just whack it and sketch something out.
  2. Open the tumblr customiser, and start translating the idea into code.
  3. Fuck something up, then spend ages trying to fix it, only to then break something else and end up having to fix that, too.
  4. Debug the code and add your credits, trying to make sure that people can’t delete them too easily.
  5. Code meta options into the theme and painstakingly design a colour scheme that works, while making sure that your booleans are all properly coded, that your colour options all work, and that common add-ons (music player, updates tab, freehostedscripts, etc) don’t fuck up when you install them.
  6. Make previews. Find appropriate posts of each post type to reblog, look for suitable header/sidebar/background images, photoshop accordingly if needed, test dimensions.
  7. Write feature lists and options, customisation notes, theme documentation, etc.
  8. Post the theme, ensure that your screenshot shows off the best parts of the theme, tag it appropriately, submit it to relevant places, etc.

And yet, many theme makers also have to:

  • deal with things like people removing the credit and other people stealing their coding
  • deal with customisation questions that they don’t want to respond to, or questions about things that have been asked over and over again and are written on the FAQ
  • deal with rude people demanding that their answer their message and/or fix their bug right now, at once, immediately
  • deal with even ruder people telling them off for being rude when the question was on their FAQ or in the theme documentation
  • deal with people demanding that they re-publish ______ theme that has already been revamped/deleted
