Please read all of this before asking me a question as the likelihood hood is that I will already have answered your question somewhere in here, thank you!
Q. Can you help me with *insert html/css related* question?
A. First off Google is your best friend, it is much quicker and usually more effective than me so make sure you check it before asking me anything! If your problem is something simple that can be solved relatively quickly I’ll try and help you with it the best I can but if it’s quite a big job I probably won’t. Please also bare in mind that I won’t answer theme questions about other people’s themes, I instead recommend asking the creator.
Q. How do I install your themes?
A. Hover over the image of the theme you would like to have and then click on the ‘Live Preview and Code’ link this will take you to another page displaying that theme on it’s own, below each the theme picture you will see a link to ‘Preview’ and also a link that says ‘Code’. If you wish you can see a live version of the theme click ‘Preview’ or If you just want the theme immediately click ‘Code’ which will take you to my pastebin website, highlight and copy all of the code. Next go to your blog and click the ‘Customise’ button usually situated in the top right corner of your blog, click the edit html button, delete the previous code and paste in the new one. Click ‘Update Preview’ and then ‘Save’, reload your blog and then your new theme should be working fine. Please note that options to change things on the theme will only become available once you save and refresh the theme so don’t panic if the theme looks distorted in any way when you first paste the code!
Q. How do I add a page to my blog/Your themes say they don’t support pages?
Q. Endless scrolling isn’t working on my blog/The posts ‘bunch’ up at the end?
A. All of my themes come with endless scrolling built in so they should work, make sure that in the advanced settings on customise mode (right at the bottom of the sidebar) that the posts per page are set to ‘15’, also the endless scrolling code that I used doesn’t seem to like the large music players that span across the whole of the top or bottom of your blog so if you still want to use one of my themes along with a music player either switch to the smaller player or delete it completely (and before you ask I don’t know anything about music players on blogs so don’t even begin to ask me, sorry!) if this still doesn’t resolve the problem follow the steps here.
Q. How can I remove endless scrolling on your themes and have a pagination (next page etc)?
A. You can’t, all of my themes come with endless scrolling built in and a higher percentage of tumblr users prefer endless scrolling than pagination. It’s not just as simple as deleting something for it to work so I won’t give you help on how to construct it.
Q. How do I add captions?
A. Pretty much exactly the same as the above answer all of my themes come as they are, a higher percentage of tumblr users do not like captions so I never bother coding for them if you know how to add them yourself be my guest but I won’t give you guidance on how to construct it.
Q. My ask box/submit box isn’t working?
A. Make sure that in your blog settings you have it set so that you can receive questions/submissions otherwise neither of them will work, once you have them set they should work.
Q. Can you make me a theme?
A. I’m hoping to expand my theme making skills so yes, in the near future I may start to making custom themes for people.
Q. I just reblogged a photoset and it’s messed up my theme!
A. This problem seems to be recurring to select few of my themes and unfortunately I cannot find a resolution for it. Either use one of my other themes and see if that one works with photosets or you’ll have to use somebody elses theme, sorry!
Q. How do I add get rid of/add another column to your ‘____’ theme?
A. Look I really wish there was a simple way of saying change this and it’ll work but the coding for themes doesn’t work like that, there’s about four different things you have to change and unless you’re quite experienced with coding it’ll get confusing and frustrating for both yourself and me. The themes come as they do, if you know how to edit the column amounts that’s fine but like I said it isn’t as simple as just changing a number, sorry!
Q. My posts keep bunching up at the end?
A. This has nothing to do with my themes or the coding. Like every other theme on tumblr that uses endless scrolling it’s that coding that causes the posts to bunch up and usually has nothing to do with the theme creator. My advice is to either to refresh the page or just scroll down slower and it usually resolves itself.
Q. How do I add a music player / Music to my blog?
A. I have literally and I mean literally no experience with music players so I am really not the person to ask. Also please not adding a music player may disrupt the endless scrolling on some of my themes so be warned before adding music to your blog!
Q. How do I get my image to show / my image isn’t showing up!?
A. I can’t for the life of me understand why I get asked this so much. Upload the photo you want and then click ‘show image’ and it will appear. It may not show straight away on the preview but once you save it and reload it will.
Q. My theme is off center / it doesn’t look like it does in the preview?
A. There isn’t much help I can give you. As stated on this blog I create my themes for use in Google Chrome on standard computer/laptops. The most probable reason it doesn’t look right or line up correctly is because the dimensions of a Mac (or other computer for instance) are different to that of which I’m working with hence the changes from the preview. Like I said, there isn’t much I can do other than apologise that the theme you’d like isn’t compatable with your computer. So sorry!
Q. There’s a problem/bug with your ‘____’ theme!
Thank you for telling me this I’ll try and sort it out as soon as I can!
Q. *Any sort of feedback about my themes*
I honestly love getting positive feedback because it means all the hard work that I’m putting in is worth it but I’m also open to creative crititism too as it gives me a chance to improve my work in the future!
