Do you have a minute? If so, I think you can help me get together a little holiday-time present for Tumblr. :) After much frustration dealing with Tumblr’s poor implementation of tags in its app and mobile site, and how lacking its optimized mobile theme is for blogs, I decided “screw it, I’ll make my own.” I think I whipped together something nice: small but packed with the basics that you’d have on any full-size tumblr theme. Unfortunately, testing this sort of thing is pretty hard. Browser emulators aren’t very good. That’s where you come in!
Here’s what I need:
- Get on your smartphone. Use wi-fi, don’t waste your data on me haha
- Go to my main blog page, http://wraithlike.tumblr.com
- If it appears the same way it does on a proper computer, clear your cache and try again. If not, continue.
- Give it a look! Go to some pages, tilt it sideways, click a thing. Just do some stuff to test how it works.
- If you have any suggestions, or especially if anything is broken or unusable, please send me an ask, a reply, or an email. Make sure to note what browser and device you were using!
I’ve tested in 4 browsers on my Droid Bionic- Android’s default, Firefox Fennec, Dolphin, and Opera Mini. So far Opera is the only one that displays anything funky, but it seems to be handling a lot of sites strangely, so I’m unsure how to fix that. I’ll give it some research.
Once it’s been tested and tweaked, I’ll make it available for everyone, with full instructions on how to change the colors and install it!
