Hi all.

My tumblr blog is at http://owsposters.tumblr.com and features graphics ("photos"). I'm trying to customize a tumblr theme with a frontpage that contains only links to the graphics arranged by tag. This has entailed sort of hacking the Photoset block by reserving it for the custom frontpage.

A normal tumblr theme is high-level arranged like this:

{block:Posts}

{block:Photoset} [misc. code] {/block:Photoset}
{block:Photo} [misc. code] {/block:Photo}
{block:Quote} [misc. code] {/block:Quote}
{block:Text} [misc. code] {/block:Text}
{block:Link} [misc. code] {/block:Link}
{block:Chat} [misc. code] {/block:Chat}
{block:Audio} [misc. code] {/block:Audio}
{block:Video} [misc. code] {/block:Video}
{block:Answer} [misc. code] {/block:Answer}

{/block:Posts}


My hack has entailed arranging the theme like this:

{block:Posts}

{block:Photoset} [misc. code] {/block:Photoset}

{block:TagPage}

{block:Text} [misc. code] {/block:Text}
{block:Photo} [misc. code] {/block:Photo}
{block:Quote} [misc. code] {/block:Quote}
{block:Link} [misc. code] {/block:Link}
{block:Chat} [misc. code] {/block:Chat}
{block:Audio} [misc. code] {/block:Audio}
{block:Video} [misc. code] {/block:Video}
{block:Answer} [misc. code] {/block:Answer}

{/block:TagPage}

{/block:Posts}


This causes only the block:Photoset to render on the frontpage.

I've created copy of the site at http://occupyukposters.tumblr.com/ and have everything done except there is one problem: I can't figure out how to get permalink pages to render.

Example of how permalink pages should look: http://owsposters.tumblr.com/post/15638386...the-poster-pack

How a permalink page looks with the hacked theme: http://occupyukposters.tumblr.com/post/128...-k-and-1-are-in

I've spent three says trying to figure this out and I'm out of ideas and knowledge. Any ideas how to get this going?

Thanks in advance for replies!

UPDATE:

I never figured this out but did find a workaround using Java re-directs and sub-pages. You can see it all in action at http://owsposters.tumblr.com
