DailyNotes Now on Tumblr!

Considering the fact that we are already making “tumblr style” WordPress themes, I decided that it would be a great idea to port these themes over to tumblr as a bonus for our users. DailyNotes is the first design to be translated, and in the future we will be porting all of our tumblrish designs over to the tumblr platform. Be sure to check out the Live Demo and let me know what you think.

You can download the new theme from within the member’s area. I hope some of you will put it to good use :)

      • This occurs when you upload the wrong folder. Be sure to unzip the theme folder and read the installation instructions in the readme file. If you still need help, please open a thread in the support forum and we will assist you.

  2. Awesome work in this template really

  3. Hey Nick!

    Would you mind providing a link to your designer theme profile within the Tumblr ecosystem? It would make it much easier to find!

    Thanks!

  7. Wow, I’ve been wanting to switch my Tumblr blog back to WordPress just so I could use this theme. Thanks for porting it; it looks great! You should do more Tumblr themes! :)

    • Are all the color options available in the Tumblr theme?

      • Ok, I just tried out DailyNotes and wrote a quick overview of it on Techinch. I included instructions on how to use the theme and add your own logo, so check it out for more info. FYI the theme does not include the extra color options that the DailyNotes WordPress theme does; would be nice to see them in the future if that’s possible. Please let me know if you need any more info, and I hope the post is helpful and useful!

  8. Well, because you told us to “let you know” what we think…

    I think that if you have the resources to do Tumblr and keep the promises you made to your WordPress customers… cool! Go for it!

    But as a very new member of Elegant Themes, I must say that this blog post left me confused and perhaps a bit concerned.

    Before I went with WordPress, I’d researched alternatives, including Tumblr, and opted against them.

    Then I researched theme sites and paid to join yours and not others because:

    (1) You claimed you were “the BEST place for a newbie”

    (2) And that I’d have “full access to our support services.”

    (3) The WordPress templates shown here were very attractive.

    (4) You promised that we could count on “2-3 new themes added each month.”

    (5) “When you join ElegantThemes, you gain security in knowing that your theme will always be up to date and compatible with latest version of WordPress.”

    (6) The price was $19.99 a year.

    However, now that I’ve joined…

    o The price suddenly (and without any forewarning or explanation) doubled to $39.99 a year.

    o The one support question I’ve ever posted has gone unanswered for 2 days now.

    o And with Elegant Themes now allocating resources to porting themes to Tumblr, we are all still waiting for the promised “security in knowing that your theme will always be up to date and compatible with latest version of WordPress”… like shortcodes for example.

    It seems to me like those updates for the latest version of WordPress should happen before Tumblr conversions.

    After all, there are now plugins we cannot install because our themes don’t yet support shortcodes. :-(

    Don’t get me wrong; I applaud Elegant Theme’s ambition for wanting to expand your attractive themes to Tumblr…

    Provided you have the resources to do Tumblr and keep the commitments you made to your WordPress customers.

    Can you do Tumblr ports and still produce 2 to 3 high quality WordPress themes a month? Timely updates to existing themes? Tech support?

    If so, cool. Go for it.

    If not, then you have to decide which to do: new horizons? Or what you told your existing customer base you would do.

    • 1) The price change does not affect current subscribers.

      2) Shortcodes and plugins have nothing to do with each other in the sense that you are describing. “now plugins we cannot install because our themes don’t yet support shortcodes.” This statement doesn’t really make sense. No theme or plugin can prevent the use of shortcodes. I’m not sure what you think shortcodes are, but they are not something that come with WordPress and can be enabled by themes. They are the sole creation of the themes/plugins themselves. Being up to date has nothing to do with it, as shortcodes do not come with WordPress, but instead add bonus functionality on top of WordPress (quite the opposite of what you are describing).

      3) Porting tumblr themes does not take resources away from WordPress theme production.

      4) We will have release 5 themes in the last month…much more than the projected 2, and much more than any other theme provider in existence. Much more than those who charge up to $300 for a similar service.

      5) Our themes are all up to date and compatible with 3.0.

      6) I didn’t say anything about being the best place for newbies. That’s a testimonial – our own members talking. They believe what they say though, that’s why the left the testimonial. So I’ll take their word for it.

      Suggestions are always welcome, but I am not really understanding any of your points. We provide an incredible service for what we are charging, but please contact me for a refund if you are unsatisfied. There are many other places to purchase themes.

      Honestly I’m surprised you have found a way to complain about a free tumblr theme :)

        • Aj,

          Had Elegant Themes simply posted a statement in a blog communicating with existing customers that:

          (1) They are expanding to Tumblr, but this doesn’t affect WordPress service levels, and

          (2) Recent price changes do not affect current customers,

          Then I wouldn’t have had to ask, and get skewered for asking.

          Is this place so insecure that any fair comment that doesn’t gush about how good and how cheap the offerings are is treated with hostility?

      • (1) Honestly, I’m surprised you saw what I did as a complaint. I tried very hard to make it clear that I think it’s cool you are doing Tumblr. My concern was about WordPress resources being redirected to Tumblr, a platform I really don’t think too highly of anyway.

        (2) If you sent out an email letting us know the price change won’t affect current subscribers, then my apologies. It must have got caught in the spam catcher, because I did not see it.

        Also, I did search your blog for a statement about the price increase and did not see anything written to inform existing subscribers that we are unaffected by the price change.

        Consequently, I hope you’ll understand that I left left thinking the only thing I had left to think.

        (3) By the way, I think $40 is a more than fair price for a subscription to an expanding library of quality WordPress templates and support.

        You know, if you are able to step back see things from my perspective, I think you’ll realize I’m not some villain calling you out, but a bewildered customer of just a few days who hasn’t been communicated to.

        I read the price was $20, and joined. A day or so later, I noticed the price was doubled to $40 without a word. It kind of leaves you wondering what you just got into, you know? Like what will it be in a year when I look to renew?

        (4) Also, I’m sorry if I don’t make sense. As I wrote, I am a newbie.

        What I was referring to regarding shortcodes and plugins is that I wanted to install a plugin to control photo galleries, but didn’t even try because its documentation showed it controlled galleries with shortcodes.

        Having read on your site that your templates did not yet support shortcodes but that you planned to update them shortly so they would, I thought that meant I was precluded from using a plugin that relied on shortcodes because I was using your templates.

        Does that make sense?

        Because I am also trying very hard not to be a support burden, I didn’t ask the short code question in the forums, which I probably should have, but in my DAYS here, I’ve not found it to be lively — which is fine. For the price, it’s great.

        But doing the right thing: reading on your site before I ask a question that’s already been answered, I read that your templates don’t yet support shortcodes but will soon be updated so that they will, and THAT is why I thought I couldn’t use plugins that rely on short codes.

        Does that make sense?

        (5) Congratulations on the 5 new themes, but being a member for just days, a newbie, I wouldn’t know that.

        But I never said otherwise, did I?

        All I asked was if the 2 to 3 themes per month would be WORDPRESS themes, because that is what I joined for.

        If they are going to be Tumblr themes, then I joined the wrong place.

        Incidentally, do you have an answer to that question? Will they be WordPress themes? Or a mixture of both.

        (6) By the way, when you decided to post a testimonial claiming you are the best place for newbies on your website, particularly on the top of your front page, you are making the claim as well.

        I’m glad suggestions are welcome.

        But hopefully our feedback doesn’t all have to be praise for it to be received in the spirit it was intended.

        That was not a complaint.

        That was an honest question, wondering if the expansion to Tumblr themes was going to affect WordPress customers.

        It was a fair question too.

        And one you had not yet answered for us prior to my asking it, right? :-)

      • omg Tom7 is a troll, dont feel the troll :)

        • Again,

          Is this place so insecure that any fair comment that doesn’t gush about how good and how cheap the offerings are is treated with hostility?

  9. I am somewhat wondering some of the things in the comment above. But the theme came out great. All the jQuery animations are fantastic.

  10. Is there any way to show a link post’s anchor text on the index page instead of the raw URL? (like the individual post pages do)

  11. Yes it will work for me

  12. Nice one ET!

  13. I just realized that subscription doubled to 39usd???
    I won’t say its not worth it but I think that should be at least notification for 100% price bump :(

  14. like I always before 19.95 is insanely low price, especially if you look at woothemes pricing, and now it double up to 39, what I could I say is that is the right move.

    Nick of course need to hire more people, especially to handle forum and maybe designer (if he do all the themes alone, than ftw nick). More people = more money needed, so the price up is justify, and more themes = more resource, another justify for hike.

    But Nick, my 2 cent, at least give a warning, maybe a month earlier.. because at least I can subscribe before the price is up. Haha

    Btw, Elegant Themes still the best, and cheapest.

    I think nick, you should consider, give some people coupon, especially to the people that still believe the price is 19.95, give them a chance, for me too actually.

    Good luck

    • That is exectly my point! No one can say that 39 is too much for everything Nick offers but they should just put the notification or tweet that at least few days before, I would bite that for sure. I’m waiting for eStore theme to purchase and now I’ll have to pay double just because I’ve waited too long :(

  15. As a future customer and someone who has been following all of Nicks online posts, including affiliate reviews and numerous $19. advertising campaigns, I have to agree regarding all the comments on the sudden price increase…

    The Value that Nick offers throughout his Elegant Themes membership is definitely more than worth the new price but the sudden increase in my opinion needed more planning and consideration for all current and future customers.

    No doubt, Nicks work is totally “Awesome” but I truly hope that he considers a price adjustment or special offer in this particular situation. I know many future members, including myself that are interested in signing up possibly with multiple memberships for clients due to the licensing agreement. Also as affiliates…

    I look forward to Nick’s comments regarding my comments and definitely look forward to becoming a Elegant Themes member in the very near future… :)

    Much appreciated!
    Dave

  16. I took the original them (for WordPress) and tore it completely down to line 1 before rebuilding it for Tumblr. Yours debuted a couple days before my version, however I think I may have won this round. :-D

    • Looking good :)
