Thank-you so much for sharing them :) I'm using theme two and this is probably a stupid question but why is it that the colours/background/sidebar image don't change if I change them in the 'edit html' section but only change when I use the 'appearance' tab? Is it meant to be that way? Or is it my computer or lack of html skills :P Thanks!
Thank you :3 and don’t worry, it’s not your computer, it’s meant to be that way! If you change the colours in the html section, you would need to click Reset Defaults underneath the Appearance section after you’ve changed them (or refresh the page if the button doesn’t work).
The html defines the basic variables, the colours the theme maker decides on and to which they will always return when you reset the default settings, but tumblr makes the themes easier customizeable for people with no html knowledge whatsoever, so they simply have to change the colour in the Appearance section and not bother with anything code related :D
