hey guys,

newbie here. i'm trying to make two adjustments to my tumblr blog: http://threelinesorless.tumblr.com/

1) if you'll notice, some of the frames of the photo posts are larger than the photo themselves. i'd like to have the frames match the size of the picture.

-i know very little about html. i've tried different solutions that i've found around the web; namely playing with the scr image width/height, which seems is only affecting the photo, not the frame.

2) also, i'd like to be able to adjust the color of the different sections of the blog--the color adjustments aren't available for all sections of the blog on tumblr's customization panel.

-if you'll notice, there is a very light blue color on some of the sections. i tried plugging in different color numbers into all of the available spots in the html, but none of them did anything.

i've checked here for more info, but i still can't get it to work: http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/custom_themes

i've attached the code.

any help would be greatly appreciated! thanks in advance!

-jared

Unfortunately, the regulars here don't know much about Tumblr. We can usually help with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, etc., but not with specific tools like Tumblr or Dreamweaver.

Have you read through their FAQ? Not that I know if it helps.

thanks for the response. hmm, i know this is probably a total newbie question but, am i not working with html? i mean, i've been working in the "edit html" section of tumblr.

i've searched all over......is anyone aware of a proper tumblr help forum? the email support for tumblr doesn't provide help for html issues. wacko.gif

thanks!

You're working with HTML, but it's mingled with Tumblr markup, and it's the Tumblr markup that appears to be the problem. For example:
CODE
<title>Example Title</title>
is HTML, and:
CODE
{Title}
is Tumblr markup, and:
CODE
<title>{Title}</title>
is HTML and Tumblr markup combined in a way that is common for Tumblr themes.
