Go to the Customize section after you log in Click on the Theme tab Click Use custom HTML This will bring up a edit box that contains the HTML and tumblr code used by the theme. Put the code for the tags somewhere between the opening {block:Posts} and closing {/block:Posts} tags. To start off easy, let's put the tags at the bottom of all your post ...

You could style at least the sidebar for this session with a ninja design if you press ↑ ↑ ↓ ↓ ← → ← → B A.

You can use a custom stylesheet (CSS) to do this. Just apply the styles .zA:nth-child(2n) { background-color: /*even color*/ !important; } .zA:nth-child(2n+1) { background-color: /*odd color*/ !important; } with colors of your choice. (The class you need to use may vary — it was y0 for me and zA for the OP.) (Here are instructions for custom ...

Try some CSS trickery (to get it to work in IE 8, you need to specify a <!DOCTYPE> at the top of the document). <p class="permalink"> <a href="{Permalink}">{NoteCountWithLabel}</a> {block:HasTags} &nbsp;&nbsp; # filed under: {block:Tags} <a class="tag" ...

Yes and No. Can't contribute a theme without making it public but you can deploy custom CSS. Under the dashboard - advanced tab - enter custom CSS values to override everything. Their element identifiers are well defined and can be over-written easily.

You should have a link/button in the top right area labeled: Keep this theme. When you press that button it changes the label to: Change theme from "themeName".

Better GReader This Firefox extension is pretty good. It offers a few different themes, plus several other enhancements.

At this time, you cannot get the "authorship" information of the Posts on a Group blog from Tumblr via the Theme Variables Edit: At the time I wrote this, I believed it was still correct. For a long time, this was not possible. Sometime in the last month or two (last time I read the Tumblr Theme Documents) this ability has been added to Tumblr. Yay! Using ...

Under “template” there is a button called “Backup & Restore”. You can also load a backup from one blog into another, and it seems to work. The target blog’s widgets will become the same as the source blog, but the old widget settings on the target will persist.

Go to http://www.tumblr.com/customize (you can get there by clicking the cog wheel in the backend and then Customize your blog). Click Themes in the upper left, then search and click on Optica, which is the default theme. Click on Use to take the theme.

I've got another idea. {block:Tags}<a class="tag" href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a><span class="tagtail"></span>{/block:Tags} This will add a span with the "tagtail" class after every tag. Then, add this css: span.tagtail + a.tag:before { content:", "; } This will select every tag anchor that comes after a tagtail span (so every one ...

Following on from @Jeremy's answer... To support IE8 (and IE7) you will need to use the first-child pseudo-class, rather than last-child. IE8 does not support last-child, even in standards compliant mode (ie. with a DOCTYPE). a.tag:before { content:", "; /* comma + space */ } a.tag:first-child:before { content:""; } EDIT: However, a slight ...

Yes, it seems all you have to do is paste your own CSS. However, if the theme requires custom PHP or HTML, you will need to host Wordpress yourself (through a web host) which is much more complicated. If you purchase the Custom CSS Upgrade you can modify the stylesheet of any theme. Moreover, the Sandbox theme allows a great deal of flexibility and is a ...

No it is not possible to change the layout only through user scripts or Reader Play. The most promising one for me is Helvetireader

You may need to turn it on in your Apps Settings: You may also need to log out and back in after making that change for the themes preferences to show up.

This looks like a bug. You can contact the support to have it solved, because you should be able to change your theme. Here is a screenshot from my Google Apps account:

From what I see you have "code" there; You can add a Syntax Highlighter script or something. See here for a possible solution (it's in french, but you can use Google Translate) Or, another thing I found: http://drnicwilliams.com/2007/03/08/syntax-highlighting-in-tumblr/

I did a bit more digging and found that the orange loader image is injected with JavaScript in a JS file classic.js. In that file the code loads HTML templates and compiles them with a templating engine: blogger.templates().compile('{template:BasicCSS}\n{CoreCSS}\n{ButtonCSS}... In one of the templates is the animated orange image as a CSS base 64 ...

Answered my own question: Within the block for each post type (for example {block:Quote}), add at the end: {block:PermalinkPage} {block:HasTags} {block:Tags} <a href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a> {/block:Tags} {/block:HasTags} {/block:PermalinkPage} {/block:Quote} Do not add before {/block:Posts}, as when adding tags to the main page.

There is a rather lengthy explanation on the wordpress.com support page regarding custom menus, so I will just post the link to it: http://en.support.wordpress.com/menus/ You should find the required info there.

Pretty much, any theme you find on the wordpress themes page are available for free. Sometimes theme developers will release a free version of a paid theme with feature limitations. In this case you will probably be notified that you have the option to "upgrade" after you install the theme. The most foolproof method is just to download the theme and install ...

Go to your blogger dashboard and select the blog to which you want to apply the grid view. Then go to the template section and traverse to the dynamic views, there is a grid template, select apply to blog.

I know how! Look for {block:HasTags} in your theme HTML. Around the <a href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a> you can add HTML tags that change the layout such as font colour, font size, font style, etc. See below for an example: {block:HasTags} {block:Tags} <font size="2"> <font color="#FFFFFF"> <a ...

There is no way to do this, without using the Edit Template function. Even if you copy the template code from one blog to another, it only works properly if the widgets are added in exactly the same order (so that HTML2 on one blog is the same as HTML2 on the other) - and even then, the widget settings need to be manually re-created.

There are two Blogger template styles - old (original) & new (makes it easier to add widgets). Assuming both the blogs use the same layout style, you can copy the template from the first blog to the second. From the Blogger Dashboard, you can click on the Template or Design tab & copy the HTML of the first blog over the second through the Edit HTML ...

After a couple of weeks of looking around, it seems there's no step-by-step guide or something similar to do this. Instead I ended up rolling my own blog from scratch using a static generator called hyde.

With a little tinkering to personalize and simplify to your personal disgression, the Linear theme by Peter Vidani makes a very simple, clean aesthetic.

There is a suggested workaround to the Google Site styling limitations (and discussion around the pros and cons of this) posted to the support forum that might help you add custom CSS.
