Join Justin Seeley for an in-depth discussion in this video Installing a premium theme, part of Tumblr Quick Start.
Once you've purchased a premium theme for your Tumblr site, it's not exactly obvious…how you get that theme from the download to your Tumblr site.…There is, after all, no install option inside of Tumblr itself, unlike WordPress,…which you just have to click a button.…So in Tumblr, how exactly do we install these premium themes that we purchase?…In this movie, I'm going to explore exactly how to do that.…The first thing you will need to do is log in to your Tumblr Dashboard. Make sure…you click your blog link. In this case, it's Tumblin' With Justin, and then once…you see this sidebar appear over here on the right, click Customize appearance.…
Once you click Customize appearance, you'll notice here that on the left-hand…side you have your themes.…Currently, I have made some changes to this theme, so it's showcasing that I have…a custom theme installed.…It's actually just the minimalistic theme, with a few HTML and CSS tweaks being applied.…But what if I have a theme that I've downloaded, that I want to install into my Tumblr system?…
