Links to Help You Start Coding by azurethemes/salazhar
In honor of opening my theme blog, I thought I’d make this post on learning how to code since many people ask where/how I started coding. This is not a tutorial on how to code a theme, but a list of resources on how to start learning HTML and CSS.
These websites are the one I used to learn and understand more about HTML and CSS.
- Code Academy
w3Schools is what I like to call my online glossary. It has literally everything you need to know.
MAKING TUMBLR THEMES
There are many great tutorials here on tumblr on creating your own theme. Here are a few:
Tumblr has also provided us with a document on creating custom themes and I suggest going through it.
USING BASE CODES
If you wanna start coding themes, but you don’t know where to start, I suggest using a base code.
I have a masterpost of base codes here, but you will want to use base codes that come with instructions like these two [ one | two ] so it’s easier for you to customize and understand the theme.
Again, this is just a list of resources to help you begin coding your own tumblr themes. I will release another resources list with more external links that provides you with tutorials to make your themes even better. This one is just to help you start out.
Please like/reblog this if you found it useful.
If you have anymore questions on coding, feel free to ask me!
I’ve been meaning to reblog this post, which I totally endorse, but at the same time I’ve recently been struggling with my anger over a phenomenon that makes me despair about such efforts (working to provide greater visibility for characters who are not white men). I’m talking about the blatant and even explicit dismissal and invisibilizing of female fandom, often to an extent that seems, from an objective viewpoint, irrational and self-sabotaging— i.e. to the point that creators would rather not sell products than sell products to “girls.”
The first time I really became aware of how powerful and nonsensical this could be was in the case of Steven Moffat, who has repeatedly made it clear in interviews and commentaries that he writes for fanboys (“real” fans) and not for fangirls (whom he considers bizarre and laughable). This, in spite of the fact that an informal Popmatters survey of active Sherlock fans found that a staggering 91% were female.
I’ve been thinking about this recently because of two Marvel Comics disasters, one acute and one chronic. The acute one is Rick Remender’s outrageously offensive (and terrible, though that’s beside the point) writing on the current Captain America; the other is the seemingly inexplicable decision on Marvel’s part to release only one limited Winter Soldier series in the months surrounding Captain America: The Winter Soldier— a series that was also written by Rick Remender, unaccountably set in the 1960s, underpromoted, and heavily troubled by production delays.
dirk definitely has an okcupid profile as a fake girl who loves my little pony and men’s rights and several of the profile fields are just long dissertations on objectivist philosophy and its application to the magical girl mythos
the account name is twilight_anarchocapitalism and the profile pic is jane posing cutely with his pillow-sized rainbow dash plush
he mostly just surgically satirizes the misogynist dudebros he’s flirting with on the topics of anime and philosophy and equestria while baiting them into progressively more extreme and absurd parodies of their own opinions until it reaches a culmination of fucking shithouse ridiculous
when they ask for pics he sends them carefully cropped shots of sweet, peach-foam smuppet ass in a bra
a true prince of heart
it would have been funny in the scene where roxy and calliope finally see each other but it turns out cherubs speak in an accent filled with so many lisping snake hisses they couldnt understand each other out loud
I lurked the SA Homestuck thread way back when and I remember someone thinking it would be hilarious if the trolls’ voices were pitched higher than humans could hear, so that when they eventually met up, they’d still have to use Pesterchum/Trollian.
"When I was that age, I listened to my elders," Onua muttered, conveniently forgetting she had done no such thing.
like tbh i feel like my problem with the “dark and gritty!!” trend in modern stories is this
there’s this idea in our culture that cynicism is realistic? that only children believe in happy endings, that people are ultimately selfish and greedy and seeing with clear eyes means…
