Lots of New Features for Single A!

It’s been almost 5 years since we launched our first Tumblr theme, Single A. We can’t believe that it continues to be used in so many creative ways and are humbled that hundreds of thousands of blogs are using it.

To celebrate the 5 year anniversary of the theme, we’ve decided to combine the premium version of Single A with the free version.

What does this new version of Single A include?

  • Instagram! Add your latest pics in the sidebar.
  • Show off a sweet-looking header image.
  • Change your background color.
  • Hate those dotted lines that we used as border? No problem. Change it to a solid thin border.
  • Hide those post icons if you want. Maybe you hate those too.
  • Show your blog title in the header bar.
  • Link to a Medium account.

Going forward, there will be only one version of Single A available for sale at $9 to help pay for our support costs.

Happy 2017 Single A users!

Update on 1/9/17:

We originally published this post under the impression that blogs using the previous free version of Single A would be upgraded automatically to the premium version. That is not the case. Going forward, if you had been using the free version of Single A, you will need to upgrade to the premium version to continue to use the theme. The free version no longer exists. If you would prefer not to upgrade, we are offering our Radiant theme for free as an alternative. We are sorry for any confusion.

The latest version of Single A is out. Your blog will be updated automatically unless you have customized it.

The theme now supports the latest Spotify embed that Tumblr rolled out last week. Enjoy and thanks for using Single A!

Version 1.2.1 fixes an issue related to audio and video posts when used as the sticky post or within featured posts. Your blog will be automatically updated unless you have customized your theme.

Thanks for using Single A!

We just submitted a bunch of enhancements and bug fixes to Tumblr for our next version of Single A. We will update this post when it has been approved. It was approved!

All of the changes were based on your feedback. Thanks for using Single A!

We think it’s a great example of our Single A theme in action. We especially like their use of Single A’s sticky post and featured tag.

How are you using Single A?

We pushed a new version of Single A live last night, but there is an issue that we are working on fixing. Video posts are not rendering correctly within the featured posts section.

We will let you know when the new version is out with a fix. We are sorry for the error.

UPDATE: This issue has been resolved in version 1.1.4.
