Free Theme

Post by Scross » Sun Jul 09, 2017 5:38 pm

Hello,
Is there a way to change theme (from free themes) without uploading them?
Thanks

add them to a folder
UPDATE ACCOUNTS tab
custom theme control

Probably detailed in the docs

https://rootjazz.com/tumblingjazz/documentation

and maybe even a tutorial on it (maybe)

I know i can download themes and upload, but json files doesnt work upload only allows txt instead of json.
But, i was talking about choosing themes e.g. http://www.tumblr.com/theme/37252

Themes are not json. You can specify appearance via JSON, but not atheme. If you want to set a theme you must provide an HTML template / theme

Sorry if I reopen this old question, but I just read through another post about the custom JSON theme file on the board.
In that JSON file there is a variable "theme_id" (set to 37310 in the example).
Rather than updating the HTML, would that not work?
Could I just add a directory with custom JSON files that all only contain {"theme_id":xxx} for different xxx, and have differently themed tumblrs?

Works like a charm.
I've created a folder with 10 text files with only {"theme_id":"9999"} inside
(10 different numbers of free themes, of course)
Selected 20 accounts, went to Update Accounts, specified the Custom Theme JSON Dir, nothing else, ran the update.
And i now have 20 very differently looking accounts.
