The Daleri Single theme for Tumblr has now been reviewed, approved and added to the official Tumblr theme directory, the Theme Garden. When I write this, the theme has already been installed on over a hundred blogs. I will browse through as many of them as I can during this weekend to see how the theme works with different kinds of content. If you are using the theme, don’t hesitate to contact me if you have ideas, suggestions or feature requests!
I am now working on creating a second theme which will be announced in a few days, and as mentioned in a previous post I would be happy to get more suggestions on which templates you would want me to convert next. Share your opinion, I am all ears!
On the WordPress theme front, I have made a number of significant updates to the Asokay theme, and I am happy to announce that the updated version has been reviewed and approved for inclusion in the official WordPress theme directory. The new version 1.0.3 of the Asokay theme will be published on WordPress.org in the next update of the theme site, and as soon as the theme is published I will update the Asokay theme page on andreasviklund.com to make the new version available to you.
By being distributed through WordPress.org, the theme will support update notifications that will allow users of the theme to see and install new versions of the theme directly through the administration area whenever the theme is updated. Inclusion in the official theme directory is also a guarantee that the theme will work with the latest version of WordPress and that the theme is built with standards-compliant and future proof code. In terms of new features, support for uploading a custom header image has been added.
Starting now, all new WordPress themes will be submitted to (and once approved, distributed through) WordPress.org. My older themes will be rewritten, improved and submitted as well.
