From today, my new Solaris theme is available as part of Tumblr’s premium themes collection, to be officially launched later this week. Here’s a little rundown of what it offers:
- Configurable icon sizes and colours
- Optional “dark” palette, set in the Appearance menu
- Option to display tags on summary and/or post pages
- Option to display post authors
- Lightbox for high-res images
- Pages, Submissions & Ask support
- Custom display of audio artwork and artist/track name
- Custom display of like, reply and reblog notes
- Display of liked posts and followed blogs
- Support for Disqus and Google Analytics
- Custom copyright message
The dark mode, visible in the wild on Nudge Up, seems to be a hit. Solaris is nine bucks via the super-slick new e-commerce process in the Theme Garden.
Big thanks to David, Peter and the team for inviting me to be part of this pilot, which I hope to see opened up to more of Tumblr’s design community soon. On that note, don’t miss my colleague Mike Harding’s delicious Scaffold theme, also for just $9.
Almost forgot: I’ve released National Park from my own site as well.
Update: there is now a version history page that lists new features, bug fixes and improvements to the theme.
