Installation

Step 1

Log into Tumblr and click on the Settings (gear icons) on the top. From your left, select the blog you want to install this theme on, then click on Edit Theme then Edit HTML.

Step2

In the .zip file you downloaded from Themeforest you will find a text file containing the theme code: Myse-theme.txt

Open the file and select all and copy , then head to the HTML box and replace ALL the existing markup with your own.

For MAC Users: If you use TextEdit, please be sure you check "Ignore rich text commands in HTML files" before opening the text format.

Step 3

Click on Update Preview. You will most likely not see any change yet, but head back to Appearance and click Save. Refresh your browser window and if everything went well, your blog should be updated with the new theme by now. To customize your theme, go back to Customize. Also, please remember that sometimes Javascript is not always updated while you are editing the theme. That means you will not see some widgets until you save and exit.

Step 4

This theme is already optimized for mobile, so you need to uncheck tumblr's feature "Use optimized mobile layout". Go to the Advanced section at the bottom of your panel.

Just uncheck. Save your changes and you're done.

Customization

Sidebar

This is the section containing: description about your blog, your blog's title, filter navigation, general navigation (home / Contact). You can customize your blog title by filling the fiel named "Blog Title" or you can choose to hide this element by unchecking "Show Blog title". Edit your portfolio's title by filling the field Portfolio Label. By deafault, this field is filler with "Portfolio".

Social Icons

Social Icons will be displayed only when enabled. To enable this widget, simply check Enable Social Icons on your customization panel.

To link your icons with your own profiles, simply complete the [Social Network Of Choice] username field!

Portfolio

Before setting up the portfolio, head on to the Advanced options section, and set Posts per page to 9 or 12.

The filter list is enabled by default. You can choose to enable/disabled this feature nby checking/unchecking "Show Filters Nav". You can display up to seven tags.

  • Tag 01
  • Tag 02
  • Tag 03
  • Tag 04
  • Tag 05
  • Tag 06
  • Tag 07

Example: by filling Tag 01 with photography, all the posts tagged photography will be shown when clicked.

MYSE uses infinite scroll on demand. Upon clicking the arrow-down below your posts,the next page will be loaded and the posts appended to the content. Note that when you are filtering some posts (example: you are displaying the posts tagged "photography"), in case the posts retrived aren't tagged as such, they will be hidden. This means the user will have to click on "Show All" to view them.

Twitter Widget

In order to enable the twitter widget, you will have to authorize Tumblr to connect with Twitter. Head on to your Settings and select the blog you wish to display your latest tweets on. Then click on Sign in with Twitter. Once you are signed in, the last three tweets will be displayed on your blog. That's all.

Tag Cloud Widget

This widget will automatically show a cloud list of all the tags you used, sorted by the most popular. It's enabled by default.

Logo

MYSE allows you to upload a custom logo image.

First, you need to enable this option by checking Show Logo on your customization panel. Remember to unchek Show Text Logo before. The image you upload will be shown on the top of your blog. I recommend using an .svg logo or .png image with a transparent background. If you are using a png logo, you can upload a higher resolution of your logo for retina displays: Logo Hi-Res.

Social Widget

In order to enable one of the following Widgets, you have to enable them. Check "Show Widgets" on your customization panel.
