Links to Help You Start Coding by azurethemes/salazhar
In honor of opening my theme blog, I thought I’d make this post on learning how to code since many people ask where/how I started coding. This is not a tutorial on how to code a theme, but a list of resources on how to start learning HTML and CSS.
These websites are the one I used to learn and understand more about HTML and CSS.
- Code Academy
w3Schools is what I like to call my online glossary. It has literally everything you need to know.
MAKING TUMBLR THEMES
There are many great tutorials here on tumblr on creating your own theme. Here are a few:
Tumblr has also provided us with a document on creating custom themes and I suggest going through it.
USING BASE CODES
If you wanna start coding themes, but you don’t know where to start, I suggest using a base code.
I have a masterpost of base codes here, but you will want to use base codes that come with instructions like these two [ one | two ] so it’s easier for you to customize and understand the theme.
Again, this is just a list of resources to help you begin coding your own tumblr themes. I will release another resources list with more external links that provides you with tutorials to make your themes even better. This one is just to help you start out.
Please like/reblog this if you found it useful.
If you have anymore questions on coding, feel free to ask me!

i sit at the computer for hours and cry For that theme in particular, it was just through some time of making the elements change colour on hover. It’s really easy. uvu (which reminds me that I gotta revamp that one —)

hello, and yep it’s possible! on the original code, you have to delete line 498:
<!--------------------------- W A N D E R ------------------------------->

Right after that, scroll up and delete line 450:
<a href="/">wander</a><!--change wander for the tagslist title-->

It’s not exactly a limit, since whatever image you upload will be resized to the needed dimensions, but these are optimal. :>
