Hey, everyone! I forgot to make a post last week but I’m on vacation with my family out of state and I won’t be home to answer most theme questions until I get back on Tuesday, July 29th.

I can only reply on mobile so the only questions I can answer are the easy, simple-fix problems. Sorry for the inconvenience! —Rachael

XKit button gone?

xkit-extension:

I’ve been getting reports of the XKit button missing on both Firefox and Chrome. Some people report only the button missing but the features working, some people report it not working at all.

Unfortunately, I’m very far away from home / a computer so it might take 3-4 (or more) hours until I can check what is going on and provide a fix.

I’m terribly sorry about this, and thank you for your patience.

UPDATE: From the replies/asks I’ve received, I can confirm that this is because of a Tumblr change. Once again, it will take a few hours for me to fix this and I’m terribly sorry about that. Thank you so much for your patience.

Essentially, Tumblr decided to change the div names in their code just because they like to fuck with people. I use the extension Stylish on my dashboard and suddenly half of it looked weird or didn’t work, even though the regular dashboard didn’t change for anyone else.

Sick and tired of Tumblr updating things for no reason. Very blessed that the XKit Guy is always there to clean up the messes Tumblr makes.

Thank you, XKit Guy!

Revamp Checklist

Making a new once since I have a couple of additions to make.

THEMES RECEIVING FULL REVAMPS:

19. Redux Edit
20. Let it Go

RETIRED THEMES RECEIVING PARTIAL REVAMPS:

4. Paper Lanterns

My plans for today aren’t too ambitious, as you can tell, but hopefully that means I can get these out of the way and get started on a new theme I’ve been planning out in my head. —Rachael

Hello, everyone!! I’ve come back from the dead (oops) to finish the last two themes on the revamp list. Then I might (might!!!) go back and do a few of the retired themes if I have time today.

I feel ridiculously awful for leaving this blog to collect dust for so long. As soon as I’m done with these revamps I have a couple of new ideas I want to work on for new themes. —Rachael

Please do not use themes from “customizemytumblr”.

theme-hunter:

This blog - customizemytumblr - is redistributing themes that don’t belong to them, as well as sticking their own credit in the codes for “providing/hosting” them and charging $10 if you need help installing it. Please find the originals instead.

Hello again, everyone! My winter semester of college officially ended on Friday and now, after almost four months (woah!) of closing down the ask box and putting my themes on halt, the theme blog is open again.
Now, over my hibernation, I came up with a few different ideas for some new themes (including a two-column theme!) but I’m sick with the flu right now so I can’t guarantee they’ll be done right away. But what I can guarantee is that the ask box is open again and I’ll be answering questions starting today!
It’s great to be back, and I’ll see you all soon! —Rachael

My second semester of college starts on Monday and I’m already short on free time as it is. Originally, I had planned to spend some time over the holiday break making a bunch of new themes and getting started on selling theme commissions. However, obviously, that really didn’t happen because I didn’t have as much free time as I thought.
Also, because of my not-so-acceptable grades from last semester, I need to make sure I ace all of my classes this winter, therefore I’ve decided to go into a winter hibernation so I can get back into the swing of things in college and not feel so caught up with theme-making.
The ask box will be closed as of tonight, January 2nd, at 10pm EST. Make sure to get all of your last-minute questions in by then, as I will not be answering theme questions after I close the inbox. I’m going to clean out and answer everything that has piled up in my ask box before I close it.
This hibernation will probably end after my winter semester finishes up in May, if not sooner. I’ll try to make themes if I have spare time, but the ask box will remain closed until then. The FAQ will answer almost any questions you may have. Happy holidays, and I’ll see you all in the spring!

FAQ: Why do the post endings have random letters instead of reblog, like, date, time, etc. buttons?

For the endings of the posts in my themes (the part at the bottom that has the reblog and like buttons, as well as information about the date, time, post source, etc.) I use a font called “Web Symbols Regular”. It’s a font very similar to “Windings”, as it takes each letter and turns it into its own symbol.

And for some reason, some users cannot see the symbols and can only see the letters. Online, the font creator says it should work across all web browsers, but those who use Firefox, Internet Explorer, etc. cannot see the font and instead see random letters.

I can only guarantee that the endings on the post look correct while using Google Chrome. I have tried everything in my power to make it work with different browsers as well but I’ve found no solution.

If you are using a browser other than Google Chrome, I suggest using the alternative post ending I have recently installed that avoids using the Web Symbols Regular font until I can figure out how to make it usable in all browsers. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Theme #20: Let it Go
STATIC PREVIEW | DOWNLOAD


I thought it was only apt to release my twentieth theme in celebration of hitting 20,000 followers (thank you so much, everyone!) and so I created a theme for the movie Frozen, which is ridiculously good and you all should go watch it.
One header image (must be 1000px by 250px) and two sidebar images (optional, can be any size).
Header title different from the blog’s title.
Four numerical links (home, ask, and two custom) as well as four extra optional links.
Two different post ending options (slide-across icons or plain text).
Every single color and background in this theme can be changed, as well as the fonts in the theme and the size of the font in the theme.
Toggle options for Webkit Scrollbar, Style My Tooltips, background stretch to fit the screen, showing tags at the bottom of each post, etc.

All themes have been revamped!

If you have yet to install the newest version of your theme, feel free to do so now! New options have been added to every theme allowing for more customization, and when you re-install the theme you will not lose any customization previously added.

Also, another announcement I need to make is that I am retiring a number of my themes. They will still be available for download, but they will not receive any more updates or revamps in the future unless absolutely necessary. The themes I’m retiring are:

1 (The Cave), 2 (Pokeball), 3 (Marchin’ On), 4 (Paper Lanterns), 5 (Boxed In), 7 (The Fault, Dear Brutus), 9 (Kind, Smart, Important), 10 (Son, Just Don’t), 11 (Moon and Sun), and 12 (The Borrowers).

Once again, you can still install those themes and view the theme previews, but I will not update or revamp those themes in the future. This is simply because their code is outdated and hard to mass-update.

Hello, friends!

I’m sorry for being so absent for a month. I’ve been studying for my finals (which end tomorrow!) and I haven’t been on my desktop computer, so I wasn’t able to code or revamp themes. But starting this weekend, I’m back!

Here are a few things I hope to get started on:

  • Finish revamping the last four themes on the list.
  • Make a theme #20 (in celebration of just hitting 20k followers!!!!!)
  • Start custom themes.

I’ve got my PayPal account set up and ready to go for the custom theme making, but I don’t want to start that until I’ve literally finished everything else so I can go at it without anything else distracting me from it. I’ve finally got a price scale that I’m comfortable with for theme commissions.

  • Theme customization (creating color schemes for an already-made theme — even one that’s not mine, as well creating images for sidebars and headers that match the color scheme): $3-5
  • Theme tweaking (tweaking one of my themes to fit your needs — adjusting margins, enabling infinite scroll, etc.): $3-5
  • Full, custom theme (creating an entire theme from scratch for you to use and only you, created to your specifications; comes with a free theme customization): $10-20

The price ranges change depending on the complexity of the project. For example, if you want me to just change the colors of your blog but you don’t want custom images, it’ll be $3 flat. If you want me to basically rewrite a section of a theme in order to tweak it, it’ll probably be $5. And if you want a full theme, obviously the $10 ones will be on the simpler side and the $20 ones will be on the ridiculously complex side.

Those are the prices I’m going to stick with. I know a lot of people will be like “pshhhhh who wants to pay for stuff like that?” But I’m a full-time college student and I’m going to tell you that $3-5 is a sandwich on-campus and $10-20 is a DVD from the store. It’s really not that much money if it’s something you really want to do.

Alright, that’s it! I’ll see you all in a few days. <3

Theme #19: Redux Edit
STATIC PREVIEW | DOWNLOAD


Yep, I&#8217;m pretty lame and I caved into that whole &#8220;redux edit&#8221; trend (except this isn&#8217;t actually an edit of the &#8220;Redux&#8221; theme, it&#8217;s just created to mimic it). This is a really basic-looking theme that has quite a few customization options.
The option to have 400px- or 500px-wide posts.
Up to nine customizable links: Two optional links next to the home and ask links and seven more links in a drop-down menu (the drop-down menu is mandatory but having all seven links is optional).
Two different post ending options (slide-across icons or plain text).
You can put the icon at the top of the sidebar either directly above the sidebar (as shown in the preview) or centered inside the sidebar.
Every single color and background in this theme can be changed, as well as the fonts in the theme and the size of the font in the theme.
Toggle options for Webkit Scrollbar, Style My Tooltips, background stretch to fit the screen, showing tags at the bottom of each post, etc.

Update Bar Code / Tutorial

I made one of those sliding update bars that everyone and their brother seems to be asking me for, and I’ll give you a step-by-step on how to install and customize it. (Yes, it comes pre-loaded with the pizza pixel. Credits go to touchpulp.)

THIS IS THE FINISHED PRODUCT:

Theme #6: Tied to the Land (Revamp)
STATIC PREVIEW | DOWNLOAD


Hey, everyone! I finally revamped the last of my old, old themes. The original was really glitch and basically past the point of no return, so I just re-did it. Well, it includes:
Two columns of 400px-wide posts (no you can&#8217;t change it to one column so don&#8217;t even ask).
An icon in the middle (not your blog&#8217;s icon, so you can upload any image you want).
Two separate blog titles different from the actual title.
Every single color and background in this theme can be changed, as well as the fonts in the theme and the size of the font in the theme.
Eight customizable links at the header, as well as a drop-down description that can be as long as you want.
Toggle options for Webkit Scrollbar, Style My Tooltips, background stretch to fit the screen, showing tags at the bottom of each post, etc.
NEW! Some people complained about the post info icons not showing up (because they don&#8217;t use Chrome) so I added the option to convert the post info into regular text.
