  • Best Theme Ever

    It looks soooooo good in Safari, Chrome and Firefox the Theme Garden just exploded. Even Mobile Safari is getting in on it (i.e. check it out on your iPhone, too, if you can).

    You’ll be able to purchase it on the cheap pretty soon.

  • When are you releaseing Lights out theme!?!?!?

    AnonymousAnonymous

    As soon as I finish making the web site that’s going to sell it. It’s going to be cheap, but I don’t know when that will be. Ask me another question and leave me your email, maybe I’ll let you test it for me in a little while.

    You can also sign up to be notified via email here. I promise you’ll only get two emails from us.

  • Writer Evan Ratliff Tried to Vanish: Here’s What Happened

    From Wired:

    I’d been working for months to establish James Donald Gatz as a separate identity. The name itself — the one that Jay Gatsby sheds to start over in The Great Gatsby — was easy for me to remember. More important, due to the prolific amount of Gatsby analysis online, it was basically un-Googleable. The middle name was my own, but Mr. Gatz received an entirely new birthday: July 1, 1976, shaving about a year off my age.

    He also got a “research firm,” Bespect LLC, registered in the state of New Mexico and complete with a logo — a bespectacled cartoon man with a mustache — and a Web site at Bespect.com. Gatz’s PayPal account was funded using gift cards. I’d even ordered up a gift card with his name on it that looked to the casual eye like a real credit card.

    I’m reading this article in Wired when I came across that line about Bespect.com and paused for a second. For some reason I remembered that website. I checked it, and I was right. Evan Ratliff followed me because he installed my theme (Other News) for his fake business. I even looked right at his picture via the link on the site that used his fake name, James Donald Gatz, and didn’t even recognize him from the September Issue of Wired specifically daring people to find Evan Ratliff. I feel like one of the biggest idiots of all time.

    Bonkers!

  • Changing Tumblr’s Audio Player Color

    For those of you who want to, I’m about to show you a way to change your audio player to any color you want.

    First you need to pick out a color. I suggest using ColorPicker. You only need the six number/letter combination which does not include the #. For example, if you wanted #45D7DD to be your color, you would use 45D7DD.

    Next, you need to go to your theme and find the {AudioPlayer...} tag. It could be {AudioPlayerBlack} or {AudioPlayerWhite} or whatever. Just find it. Your going to replace that with this:

    <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript" src="http://assets.tumblr.com/javascript/tumblelog.js?7"></script>
    <span id="audio_player_{PostID}">[<a href="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" target="_blank">Flash 9</a> is required to listen to audio.]</span>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="/api/read/json?id={PostID}"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var color = "your_color_here";
        var player = tumblr_api_read['posts'][0]['audio-player'].replace("color=FFFFFF", "color=" + color);
        replaceIfFlash(9, "audio_player_{PostID}", player);
    </script>

    Of course, you’d replace your_color_here with the color you got from ColorPicker (without the # sign). Then save your theme and that’s it. It should work.

    Edit: You’ll get a warning every time you try and post some audio that says your theme is not set up for audio, but don’t worry… you’re theme is as set up as anybody else’s.
