Typographic (english documentation)


Typographic it’s a tumblelog-like theme for WordPress

How to use it

Since WordPress isn’t specifically designed to manage a tumblelog, it’s necessary to adjust some things to make it behave like it could.

The first step it’s to create a set of categories according to the types of content you’ll publish:

  • “Normal” posts
  • Images
  • Videos
  • Documents
  • Conversations
  • Quotes
  • Links

Each post should be filed in one of these categories; it can also be on other (for instance: “Images, landscapes, beach, sunset”), but it has to be in just one of the former.

If you want, you may add tags with Ultimate Tag Warrior 3.

Configuración de Typographic After installing the theme, you should go to it’s configuration page: on the Administration board, go to Presentation and then to Typographic.

Once you are there, you have to enter the category ID for every type of content. You may see the ID of each category on Manage > Categories.

You can add a brief description of your site too.
