I have theme #7 and I had a background image in place on it but something happened now its gone and I've tried to go back into the HTML and replace the image but every time I do, it just changes the background to white. I thought maybe my armature coding skills where the issue so I've looked it up online but they all have the same issue.
Hi! If you want a background image you will have to place the following line in the CSS under the body part:
background-image: url(“URL TO YOUR IMAGE HERE”);

hi umm i don't know how themes work yet so i think i messed up or something but i'm using one of your themes but it didn't come out right
It seems your custom cursor is giving some trouble. I recommend removing it for now and reinstalling the theme using the guide.
Good luck with the theme!
I'm having trouble adding a theme to my tumblr and I'm new to the site and I wanted a Supernatural theme of Crowley, Sam, Dean and Castiel in one, but I don't know how to put up a theme. Can you help me out?
Hey there and welcome to tumblr!
Well I don’t have a theme of all of them at once, but you could start out by just using theme #7 and upgrading it a bit along the way as you get more used to it.
For installing a theme I recommend using the guide I wrote here.
Have a great time on tumblr!
Hi! I like your themes and they serve as an inspiration for me to create my own. I have a background about HTML that's why I can understand a bit about CSS. I just want to ask if where did you learn creating tumblr themes? Can I have link of your references? Sorry if this is a disgusting newbie question, I hope you can help me, thank you! ☺☺☺
Oh wow thank you so much!
There are definitely no disgusting questions regarding learning about HTML/CSS, especially newbie ones! Ask, ask and ask again, that’s how you learn :)
I already had years of experience when I started out with tumblr themes, but even then they were super messy! It took me some time to get used to tumblr’s themes. Especially the posts part, it just looked so messy to me that I had a really hard time getting through it.
The best thing you can do is roam tumblr for awesome theme makers, and look at their code. It is how I learned HTML in the first place and it is how I still pick up on new things. I did have a basic tutorial for a base code that I used for making my very first theme, but I don’t seem to have it saved on my laptop and I can’t seem to find it anymore :(
I did, however, found this very neat looking blog of which I am very certain will be useful to you here: buildthemes.tumblr.com
I do plan on revamping sandragonthemes, including making a base theme. But as I am very busy now I don’t think it will happen until very late summer this year.
Good luck with learning about tumblr themes and have fun doing so!
Hi, i know you're busy so no rush to answer this if you don't want to; anyway, I'm using theme #7 and I was wondering if there was a way to put a picture in the corner without it messing up the display of the side bar?
I can’t really get a clear image from what you’re saying. From what I get you could mean two things,
1: you could use a static background image on the body, which will not affect other elements at all.
Or 2 (which is probably the more likely of the two): You want a clickable or interactive image (like one of those status bars updates maybe?) image in the corner. In which case, yes that will be a bit harder. You will probably need to position it by hand, and use position:absolute in the CSS.
Play around with that a bit and you should be able to fix it that way.
Hey, so I've been using theme #7 and I'm absolutely in love with it. The only problem is that I'm in desperate need of a tag search bar. Is there any way I could add one of these to it? I'm pretty code illiterate so I have no idea how to go about this.
Hey! First of all I am super sorry about this waay to late reply. I’ve been busy wrapping up this college year, so for now I am going to give you this link to a super good tutorial, which includes the styling of the search bar.
I hope this will help you along!
Hi so i'm using one of your themes, (17) and I was wondering if it would be possible for me to change the black sidebar to an image instead? sorry if that's a stupid question but thank you!
It is possible, but you will need to alter the CSS yourself, in there you will need to add a background image to the #sidebar_wrapper.
There’s more on background images here.
Hello, just two things. 1) You are amazing and I love all you themes 2) I was wondering if I could alter theme #7 to Gabriel and his golden wings? If you don't mind. I just love gabriel, and I would rather him on my page :>> Keep up the great work!
Sure go ahead! Have fun with the theme and thank you very much for the compliment
Hi, I just want to let you know that I'm using one of your themes (#10) and I really love it! :) Thank you! xx
You’re very welcome! I’m glad you like it :)
