faq themes

anonymous asked:

for the anons who keep asking about backgrounds, google ' tineye labs ' and click on the first result. go to the color extraction option, upload the picture, sidebar icon, etc, and it finds images for you with the same color palette. you can filter the tags by typing "scenery, buildings, beaches" etc. !

ohh man this is so helpful, thanks for this !!

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!

anonymous asked:

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 !

anonymous asked:

hello, i was wondering if you knew of any themes that would be best suited for writing blogs with lots of links? thanks if you can help me out! i'm still struggling to find the right theme :/

If you want a blog which allows lots of links, then it is best to look for ones with five or more links. Tags can look at is 5 links, 6 links, 7 links or those with 8 or more. You can also add more links to some themes in the coding.

Take a look at these themes:

I went back three years so I can just throw some old but still awesome things at you which you can use.

There are so many more.

anonymous asked:

Hey there, I'm having trouble finding a good "royal"ish them. Do you know of any good ones?

Well first off if you want your theme to have a theme like that, you need to think of what are the royal colours. Think purple, red, blue, gold etc. Those would be a good choice if need to decorate your theme.

Some theme suggestions:

renegon  asked:

hey!~ first of all- I love your new theme!!thanks so much for creating&uploading it! now i have a quick question: i'd like to change the post's width to let's say 400px. but when i change entries + posts width, it doesn't work properly. what do i have to do? thanks :)

Hey! Thank you so much for the kind words! The first thing you want to do is locate the #entries and .posts part of the CSS. Replace that section with this:

#entries{
    width:400px;
    max-width:400px;
    z-index:9;
    margin-top:20px;
    margin-left:350px;
}
.posts{
    width:400px;
    max-width:400px;
    padding-top:50px;
    padding-bottom:50px;
}

Once you’ve done that, your controls might be hanging out of the posts. If they are, just find the .controls part, and replace it with this:

.controls{
   position:absolute;
   display:inline-block;
   text-align:right;
   width:380px;
   margin-top:-3px;
}

Depending on how you feel it looks now, you can mess with the padding on the controls and the permalink information. Now, go through the <body> tags and find the part with {PhotoURL-500}. You’ll notice that all of the embedding codes in that section are set to 500. Change those to 400 instead. Replace everything from {block:Photo} to {/block:Audio} with this:

{block:Photo}
{LinkOpenTag}<img src="{PhotoURL-400}" alt="{PhotoAlt}"/>{LinkCloseTag}
{/block:Photo}
{block:Photoset}
{Photoset-400}
{/block:Photoset}
{block:Video}
{Video-400}
{/block:Video}
{block:Audio}<div class="audio">{AudioEmbed-400}</div>
{/block:Audio}

But that’s pretty much all you need to do! If you need more help, feel free to send another message!! <3

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

primalheart  asked:

I have a question! The FAQ says that artists have free reign within the theme of the bang. Is the theme going to be sent to us? Or am I very dense and not seeing it somewhere that it is staring me in the face (completely possible)? Also this is awesome and I am excited to take part :D

Oooh, good question! Maybe I should clarify it in the FAQ… 

The theme in the Reverse Mini Bang is actually “Senshi & Shitennou”. As long as you have at least one Inner Senshi and one Shitennou present in your work (either romantically, platonically or even antagonistically linked somehow) then you’re good to go. You can add as many other characters as you like, you can have whatever relationships you want between your characters, and you can play with whatever timeline and canon you desire. The only exception is no crossovers (AUs and ARs are totally fine, though).   

The point was to allow Artists and Authors as much artistic freedom as we can give them, to really get the creative juices flowing. 

Thanks for the Ask! 

(I am so freaking excited!)

i added a tags page!! and fixed a ton of tags on most posts, so everything should be A LOT easier to find now. there’s an #info tag for any asks i’ve directly answered that contained any relevant info, like ages or heights and all that jazz. i also updated the faq and changed the theme (some people said the ice cream one was a bit hard to read!). a reminder that if you have anything you want to show me, PLEASE tag it with #liverpepper. i get a ton of notes/activity daily, and as such, tend to miss any mentions when someone @ s me—i’d love to see anything anyone has to show!!! im a bit busy today but i’ll try and do a reply either today or very very soon! ^O^ THANK YOU FOR ALL THE SMILES ALWAYS!!!

ooh ooh, also—i’ll be attending anime north in toronto. i’ll let you all know where my table’s going to be, but if anybody’s going to attend that con, please pass by!! i’d love to say hi!!!!

Hello, Saint Seiya fandom! I bring great news!

We’ll be having the SAINT SEIYA RARESHIP FEST from the 3rd to the 9th of October, which means you have a week left to sort out your pairings/friendships and get ready to spread some rareship love! 

THEMED DAYS

Above, you can see the themed days I chose for our fest. Remember you can always decide not to follow the themes: think of them as a optional prompts (for more info, check out our brand new FAQs.)

Unwrapping the themed days, they’ll be about:

  • 3rd/4th of October: rare ships involving at least one Athena Saint or people related to the Sanctuary 
  • 5th of October: rare ships involving at least one of the Marinas
  • 6th of October: rare ships involving at least one Specter
  • 7th of October: rare ships involving at least one Asgardian
  • 8th of October: An OC day
  • 9th of October: Free shipping day!

OTHER ACTIVITIES

In addition to the themed days, we’ll be having fun with: 

  • lots of ask memes
  • @verien‘s and @sagagemini4‘s awesome Saint Seiya OTP Challenge
  •  many prompts
  • headcanon games

WHAT DO YOU NEED TO DO?

Think about your favourite rareships, because I’m asking you to write a list of them! Since rarepairs are so often overlooked in the fandom and we don’t share about them a lot, people don’t know which ones you like the most! Creating a list will help your followers to send you ships you actually want to talk about for the ask memes and the other fest games. 

Publish your list on the first day of the fest using the tag #cdzrarelist

For example, my list would look like this: 

  • Cerberus Dante/Ophiuchus Shaina
  • Brotp: Cancer Deathmask/Virgo Shaka
  • Brotp: Unicorn Jabu/Pegasus Seiya

THE TAGS

#cdzrarelist for the rarepair lists and #cdzrarefest for tagging your works! Remember to use these tags or we won’t see what you’re publishing for the fest! 

And remember to share, share, share the word! Reblog this post and let everyone know we’re having a rarepair fest! I want to see a lot of you participating!

For any further question, check the FAQs or send an ask! 
I think it’s all for now, see you for the kick-off post, where I will explain everything better and in details!

(Special thanks to @sanctum-of-fantasy, @zaphiri, @xocowilde, @verien, @rakpolaris​, @sagagemini4, @billy-bones-his-fancy, @teary-eyed-circle-of-friendship​ for all the help and support you gave me while I was working on this project! You’re amazing!)
