When I put a tag on a post, Tumblr saves that tag. Meaning, when I start making a tag on a different post later, it lists suggestions for autofill from previous tags I’ve made which so far have all been saved. How do I make Tumblr stop doing this? I want to delete some of the tags which I think are already useless.

For the tab suggestions you'll have to go back to previous posts and remove them manually. Once that's done you'll be able to get the autosuggestions to stop.

One way to check is to go to yourtumblr.tumblr.com/tags/tagiwanttodelete and make sure none are there.

However, popular tags used by other Tumblrs will still show up in the suggestions.

Is this true? Tumblr never suggested a tag that I didn't use before. Also, only some of my used tags are suggested, not all. –  unor Oct 27 '12 at 13:18
you have to start typing before they'll give you the tab suggestions, but yes, they'll show some tags that are popular/common, but they won't try to display everything via suggestion. –  Dez Oct 27 '12 at 13:29
The URL has been changed to yourtumblr.tumblr.com/tagged/tagiwanttodelete. –  Siu Ching Pong -Asuka Kenji- Jan 22 at 13:43

Type in the Tag you want to delete. When it pops up, click it, then hit untrack.

I like the way you use the capital letters but could you make a bit more out of the answer you just gave? –  Jacob Jan Tuinstra Feb 15 '13 at 6:59

If you have the app just click on the tracked tag and it will either say track or tracking and if you click on that so it says track it will not be on your list of tracked tags. I don't know if this works on a computer or not hope this helped!
