Steampunk Theme: Live Preview | Code
The most complicated theme I have ever made. Based on the Steampunk aesthetic, this theme is full of moving parts and detail galore. The only downside is it may take a while for the page to load the first time you view it, but it’s totally worth it.
- Contains a ‘functional’ cog, pulley and weight system that moves with the page as you scroll.
- Custom background colour.
- Unlimited links. Your first 6 links display as fancy buttons to the right of your description. If you have more than 6 links, the rest display below your description.
- Optional infinite scroll.
- Custom sidebar image. Upload any square image and it’ll resize to fit.
- Border and link colours are customisable.
- Description scrolls when it gets too long.
- Special formatting for the new reblogged asks.
- Like buttons and reblog buttons on every post.
- Works on all major browsers (yes, even IE).
A lot of images have been used to make this theme, from all over the internet. Take time to check out the page where I have credited them all.
Gawd I just have to rant about this theme.
I love it.
I’ve been trying to change my theme for awhile now and I every time I go to my blog i just remember how much I live for this theme. That may sound like an exaggeration but it is not. Okay this theme doesn’t use Java or Flash like it could to add the interactive bits, it uses the same three things that all websites are built off of. Same. Three. And just look at that functionality.
Who has the willpower? I visit around fifty websites a day and I’ve never come across one that even comes close to this level of user functionality. All the while, the webpage is not bloated. It takes the same amount of time to load this theme as it does any other theme. Awesome.
Despite what I said early, this is probably some of the most complex level programming possible with your three basic ingredients and all so someone could see it on their dash and go “Oh, nifty”. The sad part is that that is what it’s like being a programming. If you are doing your job well, people shouldn’t think of you. As a programmer you are suppose to be invisible, it’s not about you, it’s about what you make and share with the world. So as a programer Eris put in an insane amount of time and effort into this theme and they’re not even getting paid for it.
So lets recap, Eris put an insane amount of time and effort into a theme that they are receiving hardly any renown or monetary payback for. This theme of which whose complexity puts a large amount of fully fledged websites to shame, and Eris is just sharing it with us.
Okay now I just have to rant about the symbolism here. How much effort went into a steampunk theme. Steampunk, where grand extravagant things are built with little tiny building blocks brass and steam. The concept of this tumblr theme is built and weaved inside of itself. This extravagant, user minded, steampunk theme is completely in line with clockwork cities and horizons made of airships.
To me this theme is just perfection served up in a simple block of text, and I can not get over how much I love this theme.
