I pulled out the dusty old file folder for the Tumble-hybrid Theme for WordPress 2.3.3+ and I made a few changes and cleaned things up a bit. The result is Tumble-hybrid Deuce. There a few changes. Most notably I changed a few category names to better fit the media designated. So, rather than categorizing “photos” as “slices,” as was done in my first Tumble-hybrid theme, the category is simply called “photos.” Likewise, the “thoughts” category is now “thoughts” rather than “lifestream.” These changes make things much more intuitive, I think. There are also more than a few aesthetic changes. I really had no intention of releasing the first version of Tumble-hybrid, as it was a personal project born in the boredom of one late night. So, the first time around, I just packaged it up, just as it was, as I used it myself, and made it available for download. Deuce is cleaned up and much more suited for public consumption.
INSTALLING TUMBLE-HYBRID DEUCE
Please follow the directions outlined in the original Tumble-hybrid post to install and use this theme. Note: Be sure to correct the categories names for this version of Tumble-hybrid! The original instructions call for the creation of the following categories: slices, quotes, lifestream, links, video, conversations. These categories will not work in Deuce! Be sure to create the following categories instead: photos, quotes, thoughts, links, video, conversations.
The rest of the original directions should still be followed.
