Supple - A Portfolio Theme for Tumblr

Supple - A Portfolio Theme for Tumblr - Portfolio Tumblr

Important: Since version 1.0.3, SUPPLE has changed the way it displays tweets, in order to be compatible with the new Twitter v1.1 API. The process is still pretty straightforward: now you need to enable Twitter integration in your Tumblr preferences. Read more about displaying your latest tweets.

SUPPLE is a versatile portfolio theme for Tumblr by Pixel Moxie.
