UPDATES: New Layout; Ask Box Re-Opens

I’ve been working on a new theme for this blog ever since I changed my theme on my personal blog, and I finally got it almost finished today. It needs some tweaks still, but for the most part it’s looking really good! (I think?)

In other news, I decided to re-open the ask box. I received a lot of anonymous theme questions on my personal blog (something I always always frown upon) so I figured I might as well re-open it on here, since I’m going to get the messages either way.

However, this does not mean I’m going to start making themes right away. While I have a few ideas for new themes, Google Chrome has still not updated and it’s very tough for me to code public themes. I’m going to work on some new themes, anyway, but I won’t be releasing them until Chrome fixes its problems. —Rachael

I never got spam messages on this blog until yesterday, where I got these two messages on the same day. Just posting them here because I don’t know if these are virus blogs and I want to make sure none of you click on their blogs if you get a message like these. Just playing it on the safe side, obviously. —Rachael

GOOGLE CHROME UPDATED (and broke my fonts!)

In the past couple of days, Google Chrome has automatically updated their browser, causing a lot of things to break — and most importantly, they’ve completely re-imagined fonts. Some fonts are now oddly spaced and don’t fit correctly on lines anymore (for example, Calibri) and others are completely and 100% broken (for example, FinkHeavy from my #16 Turning a New Leaf theme). Also, as many of you can see, the symbols at the bottoms of posts in all retired themes no longer work and now appear to be letters.

Unless Google Chrome decides to release a new update to fix this problem, I don’t know if I can do anything to fix this problem. I have yet to find a good way to use fonts that aren’t hosted on Google Fonts. Now that I’m in college, I don’t have the time to go back and fix all of my retired themes, so right now I’m just hoping and praying that Chrome updates again.

I’m so sorry for the inconvenience, everyone. I’ll post another update on here if anything changes, but until then, let’s all internally hate Google Chrome for sucking all the fun out of everything. —Rachael

Regarding Theme Re-Installation

If you have themes 2, 6, 7, 8, or 13-18, and you haven’t re-installed your theme since May of 2014 or earlier, I suggest you re-install your theme. This also goes for anyone who has theme 20 if you haven’t re-installed since July of 2014 or earlier. There have been revamps and bug updates for those themes; re-installing should not alter any of the customization you’ve added to the Theme Options. If you re-install your theme, you’ll probably have a better experience using it.

Now, as for theme 19 and 21, I suggest you re-install no matter when you installed your theme. I just fixed large bugs in both of those themes today and it is vital that you re-install the theme to avoid problems. Obviously, I can’t force any of you to re-install if you don’t want to, but I’d really appreciate it if you did so I don’t have any buggy themes sitting out there on Tumblr. Thank you all for your cooperation!! —Rachael


I was looking for fonts recently and fell in love with many, so I figured I’d compile all my favorites. Some of them require a tweet or Facebook post to download. All credit goes to their respective makers.

For those who maybe haven’t visited the custom theme tumblr docs lately, they have a new link. Through GA Dash, they have a free tutorial series. They have it set up to help you make tumblr themes as well as websites. So now learning to make themes or coding is easier than ever. It teaches you in steps and you can “unlock skills”. The awesome part of it is it’s absolute free. Whether this is a ploy for tumblr/yahoo to get people to submit more custom made themes to theme garden or just to have more variety of user made themes, if you’ve ever wanted to make a theme but maybe long text tutorials seemed overwhelming this is another avenue to try.

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE
ASKING YOUR QUESTION

FIRST, CHECK THE F.A.Q. FOR YOUR ANSWER

I have created a list of frequently asked questions with a collection of answers that might be able to help you. If you think your problem has an easy fix or it's common, check out the "FAQ" tab above.

I WILL NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT
THEMES MADE BY OTHER MAKERS

If you ever need help with a theme, always ask the person who made it. The creator of a theme will understand their work better than anyone else.

CHECK TO SEE IF YOUR THEME IS RETIRED

I have retired many of my themes, which means they are not up-to-date and probably won't work properly. Check my retired themes page to learn more.

TRY RE-INSTALLING YOUR THEME FIRST

For two reasons: 1) If you didn't install the theme correctly, re-install while following the How-to-Install guide. Sometimes re-installing fixes the problem.

And 2) I revamp and update my themes all the time -- either to completely edit parts of the theme or to just fix minor bugs. If you've had your theme for over a month, it might be out of date and you should re-install.

IN ORDER TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, THE THEME
MUST BE INSTALLED ON YOUR BLOG

For about 95% of the problems I encounter, I have to see what's wrong with your theme before I'm able to help. This means you have to have the theme installed and the changes saved so I can view it.

IN YOUR MESSAGE, PLEASE
INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING

1. THE NAME OF THE THEME YOU ARE USING

2. THE URL OF YOUR BLOG (IF IT'S A SIDEBLOG)

3. THE PROBLEM YOU ARE EXPERIENCING

PLEASE ALLOW UP TO 48 HOURS FOR
YOUR QUESTION TO BE ANSWERED

I'm not always online to fix problems, but I try to check my inbox at least once a day. However, it may take a couple of days before I reply to your message. If I don't reply within a week or so, feel free to send your message again.

Never fear! Your question will always be answered privately.

If you want to send a compliment or a suggestion, either send it via fan mail or message my personal blog. That way I can save your message forever!

THEMES BY ZELDAUX

Welcome to the home of all themes I've created and published! My themes are protected by the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 Inter. License. By using these themes, you agree to the license rules below:

YOU MUST GIVE PROPER ATTRIBUTION TO MY THEMES.

You must give appropriate credit to this blog and provide a link, and indicate if changes were made. My themes already have credit built-in, so just keep it there and you're fine.

MY THEMES SHALL NOT BE USED COMMERCIALLY.

You may not use my themes for commercial purposes -- they are for personal use only.

YOU MAY ONLY EDIT MY THEMES FOR PERSONAL USE.

If you edit, transform, or build upon my themes, you are not allowed to distribute the new, modified theme(s) you have remixed. Edits of my themes are for personal use only.

ALL THEMES IN GRAYSCALE ARE RETIRED. READ MORE.

TROUBLE WITH INSTALLATION?

HOW DO I INSTALL ONE OF YOUR THEMES?

Just follow my Installation Guide step-by-step to install my themes.

WHEN I INSTALLED YOUR THEME, IT DOESN'T HAVE THE
SAME IMAGES/COLORS AS THE THEME PREVIEW.

The majority of my themes don't come with the colors in the previews, and none of my themes come with the preview images. I encourage users of my theme to use their own creativity and pick colors and images that suit their blog. Look for good color palettes and play around with it!

MY THEME LOOKS VERY, VERY WRONG AFTER I INSTALLED IT.

First and foremost, I suggest you re-install your theme using the Installation Guide. Most problems during installation are caused by a mistep and can be easily corrected by re-installing.

If that doesn't work, go to the customization page, scroll all the way down to the bottom of the left-hand column until you see the "Advanced Options" link. Click it, and make sure the "Add Custom CSS" box is completely empty. If you have any HTML/CSS in your description, remove it as well.

THE ENDINGS OF POSTS HAVE RANDOM LETTERS LIKE "J,
C, U, R, P" INSTEAD OF THE SYMBOLS. WHY IS THAT?

First, check to see if the theme you're using is a retired theme. This problem should only be occurring on retired themes, so if your theme is not retired and you're experiencing this problem, please re-install your theme, as you are probably using an out-of-date theme.

Unfortunately, that is a flaw in the majority of my retired themes. I used to use a font called "Web Symbols Regular" -- a font similar to Windings -- that assigned a symbol to every letter, which I used for the endings of posts and the links on my "#4: Paper Lanterns" theme. However, I didn't realize until much later that Web Symbols Regular doesn't work on all browsers and computers. I'd suggest switching to a theme that's not retired if this problem bothers you too much.

AFTER CHANGING THEMES, MY ASK BOX STOPPED WORKING.

Sometimes installing a theme will cause an ask box to turn itself of. This is not a problem with the theme itself -- all you have to do is go to your Tumblr settings and enable your ask box again.

TRYING TO CUSTOMIZE?

HOW DO I CHANGE THE TITLES, IMAGES AND COLORS?

While customizing your theme, you can find these options under "Theme Options". Don't confuse this with the "Appearance Options" (Title, Description, and Avatar). The "Title" and "Avatar" options in the Appearance Options only change the appearance of your mobile theme, not the desktop theme.

THE BLOG TITLE WON'T CHANGE FROM "TITLE GOES HERE".

The tutorial here should help you change your blogtitle and/or subtitle.

HOW DO I UPLOAD AN IMAGE TO MY SIDEBAR / AVATAR?

All you have to do is upload an image to the Image Option you're trying to change. For example, if you're trying to upload an image to the sidebar, just click the "Upload" button next to "Sidebar". If you need more help, check out this step-by-step tutorial and see if that helps.

Keep in mind that the "Avatar" option under the "Appearance Options" will do nothing to the theme. Only options under the "Theme Options" category will change the appearance of your theme.

HOW DO I ADD CUSTOM LINKS? / MY THEME SAYS IT
"CANNOT ADD LINKS TO PAGES." HOW DO I FIX THIS?

In my themes, you have to enter the URL of the link and the title you want to give the link manually in the "Link (#) URL" and "Link (#) Name/Title" options. You can check out a tutorial about this here.

ADDING THINGS TO YOUR THEME?

CAN I USE AND / OR INSTALL INFINITE SCROLLING, MUSIC PLAYERS, CURSORS, ETC. ON YOUR THEMES?

Of course! However, my themes don't come built-in with these options and you'll have to find a tutorial on how to do so. I have some tutorials here made by other theme makers, and you can always search whatever you want (for example, "infinite scrolling on tumblr") on Google -- that's usually the easiest way to find exactly what you're looking for, so definitely try that.

Keep in mind that I will not help you with adding these outside features unless they were created by me. If you have issues adding these codes, please ask the creator of the add-on if you can.

CAN I MAKE MY SINGLE-COLUMN THEME MULTI-COLUMN?

Yes, you can! But keep in mind that changing single-column themes into multi-column themes requires a lot of background coding knowledge, and it will not work with all of my themes. Also keep in mind that every person has a different computer with a different screen resolution, so if you install more columns, don't make it too wide or some users may not be able to see the whole theme on their screen. There are some tutorials here, here, here, and here if you want to try it yourself.

I’M USING A MUSIC PLAYER AND IT CUTS OFF THE CREDIT.

Not a big deal. If you don't mind, I'd appreciate it if you could create a new credit in one of your custom links, or maybe in your description, but it's not required since the credit is (technically) still there and I have credit in the code. If you're comfortable with code, there's a tutorial here.

OTHER QUESTIONS ABOUT THEMES?

CAN I EDIT / TWEAK YOUR THEMES? CAN YOU HELP ME?

Under the Creative Commons license that protects my themes, you are allowed to edit and tweak my themes as much as you want, but you may not redistribute the edited versions of my theme.

And sorry, but I probably won't help you with editing my themes unless it's a really simple edit or if it's due to a visual disability (such as reading small text, etc.) but feel free to ask for help just in case!

ARE YOU DOING THEME COMMISSIONS RIGHT NOW?

No, I'm not doing commissions yet. I made plans to do commissions many times but I hardly have enough time to do commissions on top of editing and making free, public themes.

PASTEBIN ISN'T WORKING FOR ME. CAN YOU UPLOAD
THE THEMES TO ANOTHER WEBSITE?

Sorry, but I don't want to upload my themes to more than one website because it makes it more difficult to keep track of which versions are up-to-date. If I find a website similar to Pastebin that works in other countries, I'll start using that as well. If you really, really want to install one of my themes, shoot me a message and I'll send the code through a different source.

MORE ABOUT ZELDATHEMES?

I WANT TO START CODING THEMES. WHAT DO YOU SUGGEST?

I have a little guide-tutorial-thingy on my personal blog here that kind of explains how I started coding themes, and it includes some tips and tricks to coding themes as well. I'll make a better one soon.

WHY HAVEN'T YOU MADE A NEW THEME RECENTLY?

I'm a full-time student in college who's currently looking for a part-time job on top of it. Unless I'm on break (summer vacation, winter break between semesters, etc.) I usually don't have a whole lot of time on my hands. On top of that, I've been a little short on inspiration for new themes.
