Calidor

Introducing Calidor

Here at Style Hatch we’re excited to release Calidor as our 12th and possibly most customizable theme yet!  Virtually everything you see with the theme can be customized from background images to colors to Typekit fonts to layout options.  Install it on your Tumblr blog for only $49.

It’s Responsive!

As a bonus Calidor responds beautifully from large desktop resolutions down to smartphones.  Go ahead, try it out on your iPhone or iPad.

With 11 color options and 4 image options Calidor’s customization options make the theme quite flexible. We added subtle touches like the locking navigation bar and small animated details that will help your blog stand out. To see how the theme design adapts to the browser size from high resolutions to mobile devices try resizing your window. Cool huh? We can’t wait to see what everyone does with the theme!

Social Features

Calidor has built in support for group blogs, sharing on Facebook and Twitter, Disqus, Flickr, and sites you follow.  Also in the appearances options you’ll find nearly 30 social profile icon links.

Typekit Support

Want ultimate control over the typography in Calidor?  Typekit is fully supported in Calidor through the appearance options. Here are the basic steps involved in setting up Typekit for your site:

  1. Register for a Typekit account - https://typekit.com/plans Typekit offers several affordable yearly accounts, but you can always go with the free plan with access to their trial library.
  2. Browse through the library and click + Add to Kit after you’ve selected the body and title font for your site.
  3. While you have the Typekit Editor open go through the list of Weights & Styles (screenshot) selecting only the fonts that you need. This is typically regular, regular italic, bold and bold italic.
  4. Once you have your two fonts selected hit the green Publish button at the bottom right (screenshot).
  5. Go to back to Tumblr and open Customize > Appearance, find the Typekit ID field and paste in your Typekit ID. You can find the ID by opening the Typekit Editor and clicking Embed Code at the top right. You only want to copy and paste the 7-8 character ID at the bottom (screenshot).
  6. Now paste in the font-family values for the body, UI and title fonts into Customize > Appearance. You will find it by clicking Advanced below the Selectors on the left (screenshot).
    Example: "proxima-nova-1", "proxima-nova-2", sans-serif

Tip: Even if you don’t use Typekit you can use the Body, UI, and Title Font Family options to paste in other standard font-family fonts.
