Alternate title: FINDING ETTUDIS THEMES 101


“I love your themes but where the **** are the codes?”

Honestly, I’m not really a fan of profanity especially when it’s not something serious. But this is an example of the dozens of messages I’ve been getting regarding “finding my themes”. I honestly don’t understand why it’s so hard to find them. Maybe because I’ve been designing too long so I’ve become blind to new internet users/surfers that only come from tumblr and can’t navigate outside of simple tumblr menu links? Idk.

I mean, I get it if the menu links have special effects that make it hard to find (like my last design) but I’m pretty sure it’s common sense that it would be under “content”? So, tell me, is my design really that difficult to navigate or are people just not reading/searching hard enough?

This is a serious question btw.  And please ignore my snarkiness, don’t take it personally, I’m just very surprised about the messages. Anyhow, since many people are asking, let me make it clear how to find my themes…


1. On the ETTUDIS website, click the link labeled “content” as circled in yellow as shown below:

2. There will be a drop-down including a series of other links. Click the one labeled “tumblr themes” and you will be taken to a list of all themes by Ettudis

I hope this will make everyone’s lives easier.

Sincerely, Ans
Owner of Ettudis

    Wow, I find it hard to believe that anyone has had a hard time locating your tumblr themes, much less multiple people. I mean, even in your last theme I thought it was pretty darn easy. Maybe you’re right, though, maybe it’s because you and I have both been in the designing world for so long that we’ve forgotten how oblivious infrequent internet users can be. Anyway, it’s sad either way. I personally love your current theme and I’m a huge fan of yours, and have never had any problem finding anything in any of your designs!

    Yo Ans, sup girl? 😉 I just want to say that it literally took one click to find your themes in your new awesome-fantastic layout.

    They were hard to find? Like you, I also assumed that would be common sense. I really like the new darker layout ^_^

    I never thought that your themes were hard to find. That must be awkward receiving those messages. -__-

    I’m not i the habit of being mean but I’m going to be now. You deserve to have your ears pinned back. You coma across like a total ass hat. Get over yourself. Your navigation is poorly designed. You say you “honestly don’t understand…blah, blah, blah…” Right. YOU don’t get it. The lack is on your part. A clear indication that your navigation information is poorly written is the fact that you’ve received so many inquiries from people who couldn’t find the themes. For my part, I don’t give a shit about your themes. Who needs them? Seriously? NO ONE, that’s who. There are so many, many ,many other designers out there offering free, well designed, beautiful themes who aren’t snotty & arrogant, & don’t blame their lousy communication skills on others.

    If you’re only 12 or 13 or something, which is what it seems like, grow up, or get off the internet until you do. You’re smart, you’ll probably mature eventually.

    To be honest, I’m really surprised on your comment.
    You don’t give a shit about these themes, do you? Well, no one is forcing you to use them. 🙂 – So I just can’t imagine why you complain about them. Go and visit that so many, many, many, many other designers’ sites then. It’s so simple.
    Moreover, if you can’t stand the personality of the owner, you could just leave the site, instead of criticizing her work, couldn’t ya?. 🙂
    Also despite of the fact thayou personally don’t need any of the themes, there are many people who do. So calm down.
    In my opinion the menu on the side is clear enough. If somebody knows the alphabet (and most people do) then it’s not a problem to READ the list and choose the right link. However, there are perople who are just too lazy to do ANYTHING to get the themes (yeah, even checking a bunch of links is too hard for them).
    BTW, have you ever had a website? Have you ever met that kind of annoying visitors who were just derping around and did nothing in order to find simething by themselves? Yeah, if you had had one, you would know this feeling. Really annoying. You can get easily pissed off, believe me.
    Your arguments are invalid, your whining just doesn’t make sense, sorry.

    I have a script blocker and this makes your site really hard to navigate. Maybe design with users who don’t allow every script in the internet in mind? Because unless I allow a crapload of scripts of which I have no clue which each one does or is safe, your ‘content’ won’t show. At the very least, your menu should operate. I also would suggest less tiny text. I shouldn’t have to hit ctrl+ to read. Oh well, I liked a few of them I saw on tumblr, too bad.

    No, they’re just not design savvy so they don’t know how to look. They’re used to something finding them instead of THEY finding it.

    Really enjoyed your sass.

    They are a little hard to find, but that’s probably because I was in “Tumblr blog mode,” where I would expect themes to be under a link called Themes next to several other links. Back in the mid-naughts when I went around random personal websites more often, “content” would have made perfect sense. That form of navigation is a bit outdated, which is probably where the confusion comes from.

    I will be honest, 10px font size is way too small for paragraph text. I’m currently zoomed in at 150% on Chrome to be able to read the text on your site. Maybe it was just too small to see at first glance? If your drop down works using JavaScript, there is a slight chance that person’s browser has JavaScript disabled (not so common nowadays but it’s always considered). Awesome site, take care!
