I lost my “customize” button with the latest update….checked on chrome, opera and firefox….(standard tumblr buttons, right top corner)

Do you know how to get them back? Thanks!

mikedidthis

Hi,

Make sure you have ‘Enable Tumblr Controls’ enabled and you should be good.

Many Thanks

Perfect! thanks….now I know another route to customize it :).......one other question/feature request: I would like to add my slideshare account in the list of social links. Would you like to consider this?

So hi there,

I bought your template and changed it a bit. See here: http://kvn.li. There’s only one thing which is odd. The typical Follow, Message and so on tumblr-buttons are not there, even though I enabled the option “Tumblr controls”. What went wrong?

EDIT: oh wait. could it be because it’s not my primary blog?

mikedidthis

Hi Cliophate,

Hmm that is strange, they should work on primary / secondary accounts.

The link above sadly doesn’t work, if you can pass it to me again I will have a look.

Thanks

Mike

Oh, that’s because I put a dot behind the URL: http://kvn.li

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. It doesn’t look like Tumblr is generating the iframe with these controls in.

This would lead me to believe you need to enable the ‘Promote Tumblr ‘option: http://i.imgur.com/XbQ4CtB.png

Its under advanced on the customisation screen.

Let me know if that works.

Thanks

Hi there,

The thing is that I actually never even disabled that option. It was checked by default and I only touched it to disable and re-enable to see if that helps :/

mikedidthis

Hi,

So it is enabled then? From my understanding this shouldn’t be an issue: http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/blog_management#features

However, to clarify, the Tumblr controls are ‘injected’, via an iframe, to all Tumblr sites. The theme contains no code it include / exclude them, only to merely hide them.

Having checked the source, there is no reference to the expected iframe.

My advice would be to do the following:

1) Remove the theme / pick a default theme and see if this resolved the issue (if my logic is right, it shouldn't resolve it)
2) Contact Tumblr support with the issue

I wish I could be more help, but its not an issue I have seen before,

Let me know how you get on.

Many Thanks

Well it actually resolved it. And when changing back to your theme the controls stayed. So somehow there must have been a hiccup. But it works now.

Thank you so much for your support.

Hi,

My pleasure. Glad everything is resolved.

Hi Mike

Just purchased your theme and installed it to my tumblr kokovoko.info.

I did some minor changes. I’m bad coding but managed to do some changes. But there’s one thing I would like to change and I can’t. My blog includes only pics and quotes. On quotes I have deleted all extra info (notes, permalink, date..). On pictures I just want to keep the date, but looks so alone there in that situation. I would like the date to be centered under the image and not in actual position, should be easy, but I can’t do it. Any advice please.

mikedidthis

Hi,

If you add the following to your Custom CSS it will centre the date:

.details ul li {
width: 100%;
text-align: center;
}

Hope that helps.

Thanks

Thanks Mike,

I added it in Custom CSS but didn’t work so I added it directly in the html and works fine.

Thanks!!

BTW.. I love this theme, it’s been a long time before I found a theme I really love to change my original theme. Pierre theme is absolutely extraordinary. Thanks!!!

Default-user

Just one more question Mike,

Is there anyway I can reduce the space between the the trim lines and the posts? I would like to leave less white space, specially when using the mobile layout.

mikedidthis

Hi,

The selector you need is : .post.

However you will need to include the relevant media queries as this changes when the screen gets wider.

Thanks

Hello there!

Great theme! I love it….I got two questions…

1) how can i get the buttons on my additional pages (about, artists, etc.) to work? The pages show up in the top right corner, but the buttons to link to them are not working

and 2) where is the twitter feed supposed to be? and how do I know it’s working? I appreciate your timely reply.

mikedidthis

Hi,

The page links should work by default. If you can give me your Tumblr Url I will take a look.

The twitter feed is in the sidebar.

Thanks

Mike

Default-user

Sure thing. My URL is stormchaserent.com. The page links do work on my mobile device, but not on my computer (neither chrome nor internet explorer). Also I don’t see the twitter feed in my sidebar…

mikedidthis

Hi,

Add the following to your Custom CSS box

#tumblr_controls.active, iframe#tumblr_controls.tumblr_sticky_iframe.active {
height: 40px !important;
}

As for twitter you need to enable it via the tumblr settings: http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/twitter

Thanks

Hi there, really love the Pierre theme! Just a couple of questions.

1. My share count doesn’t seem to be working, I got a couple of friends to share some posts to check it and it remains at 0. Is there something I can change to make it work?

2. The date and notes and share links at the bottom of each post are a bit too close together for me, can I put more space in between them? I tried looking in the coding but couldn’t see where it was.

Many thanks

Sandra

Default-user

sorry one other query – is there a way to put the date/notes/share links at the bottom of each post? At the moment on the quotes, they are between the quote and author and then on the photos, between the photos and text. Thank and sorry for all the questions!

mikedidthis

Hi Sandra,

1) The Sharecount is handled by http://www.addthis.com/. I believe there is a delay between the count being updated. The count also only updates if the count is actually shared. I mean, the content has to posted to a social network to add to the count.

2) You can use Custom CSS for this.

3) All post details should be on the same line, like the demo?

Sadly I can’t offer much help as I don’t have your Tumblr’s URL.

If you can send that to: support@mikedidthis.co.uk I can look further.

Thanks

Mike

Hello, I love your theme but was wondering if there was a way for the pictures on texts posts to be as big as the text. My blog is here http://simplifythenaddlightness.com and as you can see, the text always goes longer than the pictures. Thanks

mikedidthis

Hi,

Sure add the following to your Custom CSS box and your good to go:

.details, .content {
max-width: 500px;
}

Nice review on the incase stuff btw, the inner headphones are superb!

Thanks

Mike

Default-user

Hmm… that doesn’t seem to be working. Also, how do I add adsense adds to the page? Thanks, Will

mikedidthis

Hi Will,

Works fine for me on the demo site: http://i.imgur.com/CvBu0XS.jpg

Sadly the theme only supports Google Adsense in the sidebar.

Thanks

Default-user

Hey Mike,

I got the custom css to work, but it seems to have made it so that when one enlarges the window, all of the content shrinks. Example: http://imgur.com/A1kh9sU Is there a fix for this?

Thanks for your help so far

mikedidthis

Hi,

Sorry I misread the question. I thought you wanted the text to be as wide as the images in a text post.

Sadly there is no way to increase the image size used inside a text post as Tumblr limits this to 500px.

Thanks

Hi Mike When you visit in the iPhone, please tell me how custom of the 1st line “top: 157px;”.

<html lang="en" class="js csstransitions mouse" style="position: relative; top: 157px; ">
mikedidthis

Hi,

I believe that is Tumblr adding the style code above.

First off, great theme Mike!

I just had a few questions I can’t seem to answer myself or seem to be missing:

1.) I can’t get the “follow/dashboard” links on the top of the page, where it typically is for Tumblr users.

2.) Where is the reblog link/icon for each post? The “heart” doesn’t work or count as a like most the time, and the “share” button takes you to a screen with too many links to share to- is it possible to simplify this?

3.) I think this is a general tag question: if I disable tag in posts, will Tumblr still categorize the posts, allowing it to remain searchable through tags?

Thank you so much for your time and any help is much appreciated!

www.joseph-alexander.tumblr.com

mikedidthis

Hi Joseph,

1) There seems to be an issue with the tumblr controls. These are generated directly by Tumblr and aren’t controlled by the theme. I would advise installing a default theme to confirm this. If on the default theme the controls are still missing, I would contact Tumblr support.

2) This is related to the above issue.

3) Yes, that will be fine. Disabling tags on post via the theme is purely a visual change.

As mentioned, I am pretty certain the issue with the follow / like relates directly to Tumblr and not the theme. If you could try step one and message: support@mikedidthis.co.uk with the results, I am happy to help further.

Thanks

Hi Mike,

I bought this theme and it’s great with all choices you can make.

But I have one question – how do I change the text size? Now, I find the body copy a bit too large, and would like to I would like to reduce it.

Best/Sofia

mikedidthis

Hi Sofia,

I apologise for the delay. To change the font size, add the following to your Custom CSS box:

<!-- Phones -->
@media screen and (min-width: 0px) {
    body {
        font-size: 14px;
    }
}
<!-- Tablets -->
@media screen and (min-width: 500px) {
    body {
        font-size: 15px;
    }
}
<!-- Desktop -->
@media screen and (min-width: 760px) {
    body {
        font-size: 16px;
    }   
}
<!-- Large Desktop -->
@media screen and (min-width: 1480px) {
    body {
        font-size: 17px;
    }
}

Change the font-size at whatever screen size you feel is too large.

Thanks

Mike

Hi Mike,

The theme is so zen, so minimalist, so clean! The closest to what I’m looking for.

I saw the documentation (https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2190797/tumblr-pierre/documentation/documentation.html) of this theme, it has the almost perfect design. I’m wondering if it’s developed (changed) from this theme as sort of similar, except the heading (landing page).

This is what I’m looking for: 1. Full screen heading/ landing page. (Just like your documentation.) 2. No date, no comments… just posts.

Exactly like the documentation page, but I want the hidden sidebar as Pierre has. Possible?

Many thanks, Ally

mikedidthis

Hi Ally,

Sadly the documentation is my own creation, however, feel free to use / modify this and do what you want with it.

If you do modify it, I would love to see the changes!

Love this theme, great work!

The only problem I had was getting the Ask page to work- it’s not showing the box at all. The ask page is enabled via tumblr settings as well as through the theme settings. Any help is appreciated.

Here is the link: http://blog.lydiawhitephotography.com/ask
mikedidthis

Hi,

I would double check your Tumblr settings, as the theme doesn’t do anything apart from provide a link to the ask page.

As you can see, it works here: http://mikedidthis-pierre.tumblr.com/ask

Let me know if you still have any issues.

Hmm something weird is going on. I definitely have it enabled and when I inspect element it shows a bunch of blank characters in quotes where the module is supposed to be. Here are some screenshots: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cohp7loktdeml7s/kmrsuD_AoB

thanks!

mikedidthis

Hi,

That is odd. My suggestion would be to remove the theme and see if the page shows the ask box.

The only errors I can see are from Google Webfonts.

Let me know how you get on.

Awesome theme!

I have both the ask page and submissions page links enabled and only the Ask Page Link is showing up, any idea what might be causing that. I haven’t made any changes to the html/css and i’m using the latest version.

hi mike..

a couple of questions before i buy your pierre theme which looks like exactly what i need!

i apologize in advance for the questions but i bought my current theme (from a different designer) and discovered a host of issues. so i’m hoping to avoid that problem this time!

1)

can a custom header be installed? you can see my current theme now and header just loaded it but i am having issues with mobile and share buttons etc.

www.fotoblog.eardog.com

2)

can the menu be moved below the header easily? (again you can see how my current tumblr is set up).

3)

what is the ideal width/height/pixel for photos for this theme?

4)

is it possible to NOT have the caption come up when double clicking on a photo.

5)

re: photosets: does the theme make it easy to create a photo set or does extra code need to be written?

6)

does the theme work well on mobile/other browsers or have you had any issues with it?

thanks so much!

k

mikedidthis

Hi eardog,

No problem about the questions, responses below:

1) There are no options in the theme for a header background, but its easy enough to add using the Custom CSS box:

header {
  background: url('someurl.jpg');
}

2) Again, no options in the theme, but achievable using Custom CSS.

3) Always 1280px. That is the Tumblr limit, the theme maxes out at 1031px wide, so if you use the limit you are good.

4) Sadly not. The caption is shown on the lightbox.

5) Photosets are supported by default, no extra junk needed.

6) Its designed mobile first. The only issue is Tumblr ‘Open In App’ injection which can and is advised to turn off.

Hope that helps.

Thanks

Mike

Hey,

You need to disable the default Tumblr theme for this theme to work on mobiles.

Its under the customise section. Click advanced, and disable Use optimized mobile theme.

Question: When you add an image, can you remove any permalink to a detail page and instead have it link directly to an external link?

mikedidthis

Hi Rainafterwater.

Sure. You need to set a ‘click through’ link on the photo itself. If you hover the image when you are editing a post on the Tumblr dashboard, this will show a link icon, click, add link and save.

Many thanks
