Chalkdust v.3.0 is live!

Well, after considerable buildup, a lengthy wait, and a fair amount of radio silence, it’s finally finished–the third revision of Chalkdust, my most popular Tumblr theme, is now live on the Tumblr Theme Garden!

Chalkdust v.3.0

The Tumblr Theme Garden listing has a brief rundown of the theme’s details, but for the sake of completeness, here’s the scoop!




Known Issues:

If you’ve modified your blog with custom HTML and aren’t seeing the changes propagating to your blog, be sure to remove all customizations and reload the unmodified theme. Once the updated theme has been applied properly, you can modify to your heart’s content (but tread lightly, as it’s a complete rewrite)!

As always, thanks so much for all of your feedback and support–I’d love to hear what you think of the new version! Feel free to leave me a comment here, on Tumblr, or on Twitter. I’m also happy to answer any questions anyone might have about customizations or edits; if I receive enough of the same questions, I’ll feature the answers here for everyone to read.

Enjoy it!

    Hi! First of all, I love your theme, I’ve been using it ever since I got on tumblr, never wanted to change it, and I’m so excited to see an update.

    But there’s something wrong with the images “layout” (I don’t know how to say it in english, so I’m sending a pic). Is it something I can change with HTML or CSS ?

    Thanks ^^

      Not sure if the pic worked : media.tumblr.com/90224b92e6c90c505c6453c1e54aa77d/tumblr_inline_ml95vxTpbo1r11mag.png

      Anyway, if it still doesn’t work, the problem is that instead of showing the original display, it has all the images in line, one by one (like 3×3 becomes 1×9).

        Thanks for bringing this to my attention! I’d like to take a look at the code; would you mind sending me a link to your Tumblr (a Tumblr message is fine, if you’d like to keep it out of these comments) so I can see what’s happening up-close?

        (And thanks so much for the compliment; it means a lot!! Please feel free to share any other issues or suggestions you might have. This update is long overdue, so I want to make it as good as possible! ^^)

          You’re very welcome ^^, I really am in love with this theme ! As for other issues / suggestions, I can’t think of any for now, but I’ll be sure to comment if I do, and thanks for answering so quickly !

            Alright, I’ve gone ahead and posted an update with a fix for your issue! It may take some time for Tumblr to approve the changes, so the best advice I can give is to just keep checking back–since it’s such a small revision, hopefully it won’t take too terribly long. Please let me know if you continue to have problems after the update! Thanks again for reporting this!

          • Ennea

            Works like a charm =D Once again, thank you, it’s perfect !
