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

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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

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".

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.

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

Posterous blogged about this here: http://blog.posterous.com/posterous-theming-its-here-its-live-and-its-t In this example they show how to port themes from other blogs http://posterous.com/theming/porting

I use Google Reader - Colorful List View Greese Monkey Script. Pretty good.

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:

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 ...

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/

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 ...

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.

First of all, if you haven't checked tumblr's theme docs, you should do that to get familiar with tumblr's specific variables and overall formula. Now for adding tags, it's different for every theme, and this one apparently didn't include the code within the {block:IndexPage}{/block:IndexPage} block(s), but only within the ...

Following on from Andrew Lott's answer, I've found the following URL works really well: http://tools.wikimedia.de/~daniel/potd/potd.php/commons/1600x1200 Note that changing the dimensions at the end of the URL resizes the image - so the above returns a picture 1600px wide by 1200px high. Set it to your monitor's pixel width & height for best results.

This might do what you want. It calls various-sized images from Wikimedia sites using a stable URL. They might not be the prettiest sometimes, but could be worth a try.

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 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.

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.

If the theme doesn't have it's own admin console piece, then usually you just need to look in it's images directory and find the logo image and replace that image with your own.

This might be because the calendars themselves use color-coding. More likely it's just been overlooked. You can use an image as the background for your calendar. There's no reason you couldn't, say, use a large version of your company logo.

Apart from http://themes.posterous.com/ there aren't any theme repositories (yet) since Posterous only recently got this feature. You can try to use existing tumblr themes, most of them should work, else you will have to do slight modifications.
