Provenance (Tumblr)

Provenance combines multiple header and sidebar options with our improved featured tag drop-down menu. It’s all housed in stunning typography and simple design. It’s super flexible and hugely customizable.


Featured Tag Drop-Down Menu

Like our portfolio themes Kodiak and Aperture, Provenance features a tag-organized collection menu. Simply enter the tags with which you’d like to group posts into the “Tag Collections” field in the customization options.

For example, say you wanted to create collections of posts about books, and posts about bacon. Simply tag your book posts with “Books” and your bacon with “Bacon.” Then, head to the customization options and enter “Books, Bacon” into the Tag Collections field. Save your work, and you’ll have two crisp new collections in your “Collections” menu when you refresh the page. You also can re-name this menu to anything you’d like in the “Tag Collections Menu” field in the customization options.

Header Color Opacity

Provenance’s header is designed with a customizable colored overlay, which can be set to any value from 0 (transparent) to 1.0 (totally opaque).

Alternate Header Layout

Provenance comes with two header layouts: the default layout is left-justified, and the Alternate Header Layout is center-aligned.


Provenance’s sidebar can be toggled on/off. Since it normally contains the Search bar, Random, Archive, RSS, and Tag Collection menus, un-toggling it will put those links in a top-bar menu, just under the header image.

Color Customization

Provenance’s Accent, Background, Header, Header Text, Header Title, Main Background, Secondary Background, and Secondary Text colors are all customizable.

Instagram Feed

Provenance’s footer features an 8-picture Instagram feed, easily setup in the customization options. Just head here to retrieve your access token, and plug it into the corresponding field in the customization options. Done!

Flickr Feed

Provenance’s Flickr feed is even easier to setup. Simply input your Flickr User ID (retrievable here) into the corresponding field in the customization options and you’re all set. Just like the Instagram feed, your Flickr feed will display in the About screen.

Avatar Size

The ideal size for Provenance’s avatar is 129×129px.

Facebook Commenting

Provenance supports Facebook commenting. Setting up FB comments is easy:

First, head to the Facebook Developer site, sign up and head to the “Apps” tab in the top bar. Once there, click “Create New App.”

Input any name you’d like for your hypothetical app (you’re not actually making one, don’t worry), agree to the ToS and click Create. You’re almost done!

Input your Contact Email (in Basic Info) as well as your blog’s URL into the “Site URL” box (in the “Website With Facebook Login” tab) and save your changes.

Copy the App ID located just below your app’s name (at the top of the page) and you’re all set. Now head back to your blog and input your API ID into the “Facebook API ID” field in the customization sidebar, and make sure you’ve checked “Facebook Comments On.”

Disqus Commenting

Provenance also supports Disqus commenting, setup by inputting your Disqus shortname into the corresponding field in the customization options.

Infinite Scroll

Of course.

Social Media Links

Provenance’s footer features links to: Behance, Delicious, DeviantArt, Digg, Dribbble, Facebook, Flickr, Foursquare, Github, Instagram, LastFM, LinkedIN, Myspace, Pinboard, Pinterest, Rdio, Skype, Soundcloud, Spotify, Stumbleupon, Svpply, Vimeo, and YouTube.

Site Tracking

Provenance also supports Google Analytics, using your GA Property ID.
