Go to http://www.tumblr.com/customize (you can get there by clicking the cog wheel in the backend and then Customize your blog). Click Themes in the upper left, then search and click on Optica, which is the default theme. Click on Use to take the theme.

At this time, you cannot get the "authorship" information of the Posts on a Group blog from Tumblr via the Theme Variables Edit: At the time I wrote this, I believed it was still correct. For a long time, this was not possible. Sometime in the last month or two (last time I read the Tumblr Theme Documents) this ability has been added to Tumblr. Yay! Using ...

It's managed in Disqus settings, not on Tumblr. Log into your Disqus account Go to the account that needs the change (the first page when logged in is the dashboard) Click on Settings (the right-most tab) Click on Appearance Scroll down to the Comment Count Link group of settings (almost at the end of the page) There you'll see three editable text fields ...

The code that are trying to include shows tags under each post and needs to be included somewhere between {block:Posts} and {/block:Posts}. In addition, your posts must have tags if you want tags to be shown (that's why it's called HasTags). Tags are to be specified in the dedicated field when you're creating or editing a post. If you are talking about a ...

Try some CSS trickery (to get it to work in IE 8, you need to specify a <!DOCTYPE> at the top of the document). <p class="permalink"> <a href="{Permalink}">{NoteCountWithLabel}</a> {block:HasTags} &nbsp;&nbsp; # filed under: {block:Tags} <a class="tag" href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a&...

I've got another idea. {block:Tags}<a class="tag" href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a><span class="tagtail"></span>{/block:Tags} This will add a span with the "tagtail" class after every tag. Then, add this css: span.tagtail + a.tag:before { content:", "; } This will select every tag anchor that comes after a tagtail span (so every one ...

Following on from @Jeremy's answer... To support IE8 (and IE7) you will need to use the first-child pseudo-class, rather than last-child. IE8 does not support last-child, even in standards compliant mode (ie. with a DOCTYPE). a.tag:before { content:", "; /* comma + space */ } a.tag:first-child:before { content:""; } EDIT: However, a slight caveat ...

Include the following code: {block:HasTags} {block:Tags} <a class="tag" href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a> {/block:Tags} {/block:HasTags} in the block for each type of post. So you will have this seven times: in {block:Text}, in {block:Audio}, etc. Put this right before the closing of the block (so right before {/block:Text}, for example) ...

It doesn't look like the theme has any commenting system embedded into it. There is no code for either Disqus or IntenseDebate or Facebook comments. If you wish to add Disqus comments, here're the instructions for embedding it in Tumblr. Please note that you need a Disqus account first.

Now that Disqus 2012 is out, if you want to change the text of your comment count, you have to temporarily disable Disqus 2012 to access the "Appearance" tab.

Each theme is different, but here's how I would of updated it on my tumblr. Knowing more about your theme's HTML would give a better answer. Go to http://www.tumblr.com/customize/<yourBlogName> and click Edit HTML. Within that page look for About within an <h4> tag. Mine looks like this before: <h4>{lang:About}</h4> <div id="...

Answered my own question: Within the block for each post type (for example {block:Quote}), add at the end: {block:PermalinkPage} {block:HasTags} {block:Tags} <a href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a> {/block:Tags} {/block:HasTags} {/block:PermalinkPage} {/block:Quote} Do not add before {/block:Posts}, as when adding tags to the main page.

It depends on your theme, but you're probably gonna have to find the name of the div that contains the post info, and then add some CSS to hide that div by default and show it on hover. For example, this is the CSS I added to my theme (right before {CustomCSS} in the theme code): body.index .post .meta { opacity: 0; height: 0; } body.index .post:...

You need to edit your theme and add the code responsible for including notes. For the standard display, add {PostNotes} in the block responsible for displaying a single post, e.g. in {block:Posts} … {/block:Posts}.

I think it was all on the tumblr's technical side of things. It was neither my custom theme nor the settings that were affecting this. Contacting the tumblr's support fixed my issue (I didn't receive a response from tumblr's support about the success of fixing the issue, but after submitting my issue and one reply later, it seems to be fixed). If any of you ...

First of all, if you haven't checked tumblr's theme docs, you should do that to get familiar with tumblr's specific variables and overall formula. Now for adding tags, it's different for every theme, and this one apparently didn't include the code within the {block:IndexPage}{/block:IndexPage} block(s), but only within the {block:PermalinkPage}{/block:...

I'm guessing it's a piece of CSS unintentionally hiding it. We'd have to see the page in action to figure it out (either link to your blog that uses the theme, and/or link to the theme you're using), then I can edit this post if I find the problem.

Option 1 What you were trying to do (deleting the {block:HasTags} ... {/block:HasTags} stuff) should actually have worked.. I recently had to add those to my own theme, since tags weren't being shown. Might be worth trying again, making sure not to change anything else? There might also be multiple places where that shows up and you'd need to delete them ...

As answered by OP I figured it out! Yayyy! I deleted all of the HasTag blocks from the individual post blocks. Instead of adding the HasTags block just before {/block:Posts}, I threw it in just before the <!-- end #post --> inside the already existing </div>. I also added an &nbsp because my tags weren't being spaced apart at ...

Variant 1: in HTML If you want to include the # before each tag so that it could be copy&pasted, you could add it in your markup: <a href=”{TagURL}”>#{Tag}</a> Variant 2: in CSS If you only want to display the #, you could use pseudo-elements (CSS): a::before (content:"#";) You'd need to use an appropriate selector so that it only adds ...

Yes, you want your tags code added into a Permalink block - which means the Permalink page is where they will show. Same for anything you don't want to see on the Index or main page. This, however, depends on how the rest of the theme is written, and often one has to experiement with Blocks.

Ok, so I got REALLY bored and here you go.

The piece of code contains different functions, as you can see. According to their names and what they do, it looks like they are simply for generating the grey boxes which would be tags. Other functions are i.e. editing the tag(s).

It's not a virus or bug at least. It looks like a gadget code that you may be using for your tumblr. The code seems to do some AJAX work, means loading contents asynchronously. Probably it loads some HTML elements in your blog post dynamically. If you want, can you show us your blog so we can see what the script really does (curiosity :D) But I don't ...

Try placing it before the .bottom <div> {block:HasTags} {block:Tags} <div class="tags"> <a href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a> </div> {/block:Tags} {/block:HasTags} <div class="bottom"></div> </div> {/block:Posts} Should give something like the following The tags above ...

I found the solution: At the bottom of the CSS, add: #tags a { margin:20px 0 0 0; color:{color:Text}; line-height:10px; color:{color:Links}; text-decoration:none; font-variant:small-caps; font-family:Georgia; font-size:10px; position:relative; top:-75px; } And then place the HasTags code immediately before {/block:...

You can get the thumbnail by using the {VideoThumbnailUrl} variable, It should show you the thumbnail assigned to the video. Using that along with {block:PermalinkPage}{/block:PermalinkPage} and {block:IndexPage}{/block:IndexPage} should get you the desired effect. Wrap this in an image tag and you should be good to go, be aware that youtube thumbnails are ...

I know how! Look for {block:HasTags} in your theme HTML. Around the <a href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a> you can add HTML tags that change the layout such as font colour, font size, font style, etc. See below for an example: {block:HasTags} {block:Tags} <font size="2"> <font color="#FFFFFF"> <a href="...

Not too surprising, really: you have two div .list containing all your posts inside div #main_column: one ID-less and #pages. Remove one or the other and the issue goes away.

This is because this is not possible to do with CSS, these are two different pages, you would have to dynamically place JavaScript to pull in the CSS into the iFrame html content. The most you can do is play with the iFrame itself iframe#ask_form
