Longform (Tumblr)

By Acty, March 8, 2014

Longform is our gilded carriage for text. Typographical refinement and a pristine layout make content pop while staying classically minimal. It’s a beautiful and expansive space to exercise full extent of your creativity; perfect for content-heavy blogs of all kinds.

Facebook Commenting

Longform 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

Longform also supports Disqus commenting. Simply input your Disqus shortname into the corresponding field in the customization options.

Infinite Scroll

Longform allows you to toggle between traditional pagination and ‘click-to-load’ infinite scroll. Note that mobile devices, including tablets, will always display traditional pagination.

Custom Options

Longform’s Header image, accent colour, accent hover colour, and title colour are all fully customizable.

Social Media Links

Longform provides custom icons for: Facebook, Twitter, Email, Pinterest, Svpply, Google+, Linkedin, Vimeo, YouTube, Dribbble, Behance, Instagram, Flickr, Skype, SoundCloud, Bandcamp, Myspace, LastFM, Rdio, Spotify, deviantART, Stumbleupon, Delicious, Digg, Pinboard, Foursquare, GitHub, Steam, and Etsy.
