Wakalixes 1.0

Wakalixes is a simple, clean, and customizable Tumblr theme by Andrea Mignolo.  It is released under a Creative Commons license, which means you are free to use it, change it, and play with it, but be sure to give attribution, keep it non-commercial, and share anything you create based on it.  After all, sharing is caring.

To use Wakalixes, just download, unzip, and copy what’s in wakalixes.zip and paste it into the custom HTML field in the THEME section of your customization screen.

Each type of media has a different meta tag, containing a small icon and the date it was posted.  The backgrounds and text of both the icon and the dates can be customized, which might be fun for those of you with a great sense of color.  Of course, the rest of the colors can be customized as well, but I thought I’d point out that extra bit.

Currently reBlogging and group posts haven’t been added.  If there is any interest, just let me know.  Bugs, requests, problems, and general greetings can be sent to hello@andreamignolo.com.


In order to make icons display properly, be sure that your browser is set to UTF-8 when copying this theme for your Tumblr blog!  The icons will not show up correctly if copied when your browser is set to Western encoding!  In Firefox, this setting can be found in View -> Character Encoding -> UTF-8.

EDIT 10.30.2008

Wakalixes can be downloaded in .zip format here if you are still having problems with proper icon display. Simply unzip the file, open wakalixes.html in a text editor, and copy the theme over.
