    Tumblir Customization

    There are also some other features that will make sure you have a delightful social networking and microblogging experience. The stand alone feature of Tumblr is that it allows users to customize the page style and appearance of the blog. In programming terms, the main components of a Tumblr post are photos, images, links, video, audio, and quotes. So ensure that your themes are customized to suit these primary components. On this regard, I would like to suggest a few tips which will help you customize your Tumblr page:
    • Segregate photo posts, text posts, and video posts to make your blog more attractive and engaging.
    • If you are not an expert in HTML coding, then you have an array of premium and free themes to choose from to customize the appearance of your blog.
    • If you are well-versed in HTML coding, you can follow these tips to customize your Tumblr page. Click the name of your blog first, under which you have the customize appearance option, and then click the Edit HTML option. Please not that variables and blogs are the two types of operators used in the coding of a Tumblr page.
    • With the edit HTML option, you can pretty much customize all the notable options of a Tumblr page such as text posts, photo posts, video posts, tags, and content sources, among others.
    • Under the dashboard option, there is this ‘customize theme’ option, which allows you to select from a range of free and premium themes, and also change between standard and custom layouts.
    • You can use the variables HTML coding option to insert dynamic content like the title or description of a blog. You can use the block HTML coding option to conditionally declare a block of HTML for a data set.
    • If you frequently access your Tumblr blog on your iPhone, then you can certainly customize the appearance of your blog on the iPhone. Tumblr blogs are automatically optimized for viewing on portable devices, but you can also override the default option and add a custom layout page to change the appearance. 

    Hope these suggestions and tips will serve a useful guide in optimizing and customizing your Tumblr account as a newbie. If you already used Tumblir before and if we may forgot to mention something in here please feel free to share your experience with us using the comment section below!
