Colors, images, logos, avatars, icons, buttons, links, titles, descriptions, intros, features, toggles, sizes, shapes, fonts... if you can see it then you can customize it! Hipster is designed for you to make it your own and show off your individual style. You can customize almost everything you see via the options in your Customize panel, no coding necessary.

Hipster helps you set the scene for your blog with a large header image, with your avatar and first post overlapping to create a sense of depth. You can add up to 5 header images to be randomly loaded on each page load, and the header adapts to any screen size.
Upload your own logo, or use a combination of your avatar and title - you can customize the title font, size and spacing to get your style just right. Your social media links, pages/menu and search are neatly arranged in the sidebar. The sidebar stays fixed as you scroll to keep your identity visible at all times.
Powerful single column blog
Hipster features a brilliantly minimal single column blog layout. The simple, clean layout gets out of the way to keep the focus on your content - perfect for everything from photo blogs to longform written content... and everything in between.
Just choose a tag to feature posts at the top of your home page, regardless of when they were posted. Perfect for introductions, important information and those extra-special posts.
Simply link your Instagram account to the theme, and display a beautiful large grid of your latest images, right there on your blog. You can even choose the order that it displays amongst your posts.
Hipster features awesome keyboard navigation, allowing you to use the up and down arrow keys to quickly jump between posts on your blog, and even fire the 'load more' button. This lets the theme get out of your visitors' way, keeping their attention on what's important - your posts.
As well as Hipster's unique design and features, the theme comes with our standard set of powerful premium features...
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
Hipster'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
Hipster 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. Hipster 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. http://twitter.com/precrafted ) to activate the built-in social media icons for Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Website, Google, Linkedin, Foursquare, Skype, Email, Instagram, Flickr, 500px, VSCO Grid, Camera, Eye, Pinterest, Heart, Youtube, Vimeo, Vine, Ebay, Store, Apple, Googleplay, Etsy, Dribbble, Behance, deviantART, Github, Medium, Quora, Weibo, Travel, Lastfm, Rdio, Spotify, Soundcloud, and RSS.
Social Media Sharing
Hipster 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, Fonts.com 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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Need help with Hipster? You can visit our Help Center for tutorials, tips and answers to your most frequently asked questions. PLEASE NOTE - As this theme is free, we are unable to offer one-on-one support with blog customizations. Try one of our premium themes for that.
We keep all of our themes running perfectly with regular updates, tweaks and new features. If you don't edit the theme code you'll get them automatically, sweet! And if you do edit the theme code, you can reset it at any time to get the latest version.
