Tumblr has added a second theme I designed and coded to their template offerings.
The Hipster theme can be installed by following this link.
Upon submitting my first design to the Tumblr Theme Garden, I was unfamiliar with the approval process. I had questions.
- How long will it take before I know if the theme is approved?
- Did I submit everything correctly?
- How do I delete my duplicate theme submission?
Unfortunately, there are no quick answers.
After submitting your theme, you will be given access to a theme management page. The link appears at the top of the Theme Garden upon login.
Inside will be listed your theme name and a link you may use to manually share your theme with others while it’s under the review process.
And that’s all that is provided. You may click on your theme name to make changes to what you have submitted, but otherwise … crickets.
Here’s a detailed list of features:
- Background Begin Gradient
- Background End Gradient
- Blog Title
- Post Titles
- Title font (includes blog title, post titles and side navigation)
- Body font
If you are a fan of simple, clean, easily customizable templates, you will enjoy the Markus theme.
The free theme allows users to quickly change colors, headlines and fonts.
The theme is also optimized for Disqus comments, Twitter, Flickr and Google Analytics.
The best way to get the full experience is to install it yourself.
After polishing up my custom WordPress theme this morning, I happy to report that this site is now backed by the WordPress CMS.
I built Rick Markus 1.0 from scratch to mirror the look of the site when it was ran solely on HTML and PHP files, so returning visitors might not notice much of a difference.
It’s fulfilling to break away from pre-made themes, especially considering the popularity of WordPress around the Web.
