“Print Theme” is my first publicly available Tumblr theme.
The theme just started with the CMYK-type colour block, I hadn’t seen anyone else use this as a feature and I worked the rest of the layout around it.
- Print-ready page look, that puts the content first
- Print Styles included
- New exif data display. When enabled, exif data appears underneath photo on permalink page
- New support for Spotify Play Button in audio posts
- Language support
- HTML5 semantic markup
These standard features can be enabled from the Settings menu in your Tumblr Dashboard…
- Display Your Recent Tweets
These features can be toggled in the dashboard > customize appearance > appearance

- Customise Secondary Link Colour [post detail links, #tags etc.]
- Twitter Follow Button On/Off
- Google Analytics [Enter your full User ID which starts “UA-“]
Custom CSS is enabled for those confident enough to tinker around, please BACKUP before you go poking around, ‘Update preview’ is your friend before you commit any changes.

It features HTML5 markup [with HTML5 Shiv], <article>, <section>, <nav>, <header> etc. and some subtle CSS3 transitions on the pagelinks [older browsers will exhibit default behaviour]. CSS Gradients for the search button. I have used vendor specific attributes where needed.
The theme usese ‘@media print’ print specific styling.
If you have problems trying to enable features or functionality, plase take a look at the excellent resource Tumblr provides regarding creating cutom themes. If you are trying to add a widget or embed something, most services now offer a Tumblr tailored option and provide specific supporting documentation.
You can ask and I may reply.
