"optica remake" someone’s gonna shoot me for this but it’s basically a redesign of tumblr’s current default theme optica. the actual optica theme is pretty big and not very customisable and doesn’t work well in older browsers. so i made a daintier remake that’s really customisable & well i also think it’s super cute. anyway i rambled about this in the preview so

click here for the preview & code & specs

the code will be in the top right corner

Redux Redefined

redux is a pretty popular base for theme-makers to use, but the coding featured a lot of unnecessary markup and it made the theme difficult (and annoying) to edit, even for people who have worked with code before.

this code works just like redux, but with better organized CSS. the only style differences are: 

  • removed link underlines
  • sidebar now one uniform div with border-radius attributes instead of three parts with background images used for the same effect.
  • removed buttons on the bottom (a feature rarely used by redux editors) and copyright information.

get the code here & message me here with any problems or questions!
