Tumblr Blackout Code
Have you ever wanted to take a hiatus without worrying about who’s looking at your blog? Well, have no fear! You can just about search any “hiatus theme” in google to get a code, it doesn’t even have to be for tumblr. I’ve used live journal, wordpress hiatus themes by just copying and pasting it into my theme html with slight tweaking.
You can also search the “hiatus theme” tag on tumblr for better pages, this is just ultra simple and to the point.
*this theme is WITH an askbox on the front, if you wish you remove it, just remove the askbox code. Those who are following you will still see your posts from INSIDE tumblr, just the outside will be blacked out.
- Customize -> Edit HTML
- Delete existing theme (keep any statcounter codes etc), this is mandatory.
- Copy and paste blackout code
- Insert your username in the [USERNAME] section, ex: johnsmith1
- If you want to remove the askbox, delete everything between <p> to </p>
Tips: You can get creative and add words by using a text generator and inserting the code, if you aren’t html-savy, you can insert pictures like that as well, etc. Just make sure to insert everything you do UNDER the <HEAD> section of the theme.
For maximum privacy, disable your tumblr from mobile view.
