thememaking

It’s been another busy 5 months. When looking back, it’s amazing how much has changed: I’ve been maintaining multiple group blogs (lionelmessidaily, themevillage, and historyloversnet), renewed my theme blog to host themes, and decided to start creating fanmixes, but on top of these, I’ve matured a lot as a person. Now that I have finished my exams, I’m coming back with a new Tumblr Awards bc I want to say thank you for everyone’s support c:

anonymous asked:

Can I upload background image on your themes?

No, unfortuneately I didn’t include that feature with any of my currently published themes, however, here’s the codes so that you can do it yourself if you like. ( * you might have to erase the quotation marks and re-type them in if you copy + paste. ) 

Put this code above the <style type="text/css"> 

<meta name=”image:background” content=”/” />

and you put this code between <style type="text/css">  and </style>

body {
background-image: url(‘{image:background}’);
background-repeat: repeat;
background-position: top left;
background-attachment: fixed;  }

Okay, so, if you want to keep the image from repeating, just change the “background-repeat: repeat;” part to “background-repeat: no repeat;”. (pretty simple, right?) and if you want to change the position of the background image, you can find all the attributes here! ( * you can also find just about everything I just said on this website, too ).

kay so i KINDA reached 300 followers in this blog (eeey) and i wanna do a giveaway but listen

i was gonna offer photoedits but tbh I’ve tried that before and I ran out of steam REAL fast so here’s what im gonna do

if you don’t like the theme on your blog/you want a new one but dont wanna do it yourself or w/e, i will do it for you and make it look nice

here are. some blogs i’ve done for people

please note that i do not actually do all the html for the themes!! i do the colors and stuff and often do a lot of editing in the html (within the thememaker’s guidelines, mostly for accessibility purposes but also to just make things look a lil nicer)

it’s a really easy lil thing for me to do but at least it’s something so!! i’m gonna cap this at 15 people, but i’ll be choosing randomly. you can reblog until 5/16/2015, likes will not count but you can reblog more than once if you really feel so compelled. the biggest rule is that you MUST be following me already, since this is FOR my followers. i will do my best to make your blog look nice and stuff yes c:

minimalist white and purple one column theme for big posts + small sidebar

hey peeps so here’s my very first theme. shout out to meroku for the base code for making this a lot easier until i figure out how to not get assaulted by css!

these theme is pretty much good for minimalist bloggers. not a lot going on here but big posts and big text w/ a small sidebar. add a few more links if need be! please like or reblog if you use this theme just because i wanna be nosy and see what it looks like in use on other people’s blogs.

anonymous asked:

how do you get the notes to appear when you hover on a post?

find the permalink div and set it to opacity: 0; then add
.entry:hover .perma { opacity:1;

.perma is the div of the permalink and .entry is the individual posts div. it may be different w different thememakers but thats how i usually do it ^^
