type “suicide” in the search bar, and the first picture will pop up.

Click on “Pass the url of a blog on to us”.

The second picture will pop up.

Fill out the form, and an email is sent directly to tumblr, who will be able to track their IP if necessary, and look at their page to see exactly what’s going on.

This is the best way to help those who have turned off all methods of communication on their blog.

((Thank you for putting this together. Passing it along.))

These are just a list of sites I’ve compiled that I utilize to make Tumblr themes. Some include tag references, cheat sheets, tutorials, etc. Useful for those skilled in making Tumblr themes or anyone who wants to start out!

(Links that are bold, I’ve either found particularly helpful or I use them often.)

Resources On Tumblr

  • Creating a custom HTML theme (This page has been one of the most helpful with familiarizing myself with how to code themes for Tumblr. It’s basically a list of all Tumblr’s custom variables, which are essential in building a theme. They’re like placeholders for content, that tell what to put for a text post, where the description goes, etc. Very useful, and I still reference it now to make sure I get the correct spelling or format of a variable!)
  • Static File Uploader (This is very important, for those of you that like adding custom images or scripts to a theme. Files such as that should be hosted externally so as to not slow down the page-load time with a bunch of code, and Tumblr only lets you use files in your themes that are hosted by them. (Also, Tumblr has a size limit for your theme code, so cut that down by hosting your CSS and JavaScript externally). So here, you can host image files, CSS, JavaScript, or even font files. But don’t use it as your own personal file hosting—Tumblr will ban your account if you do so. Only use it for theme assets.)
  • Theme Submit Form (Once you complete a theme, submit it to the theme garden! Pay attention to the theme requirements on the right side of the screen; especially #4 which tells you which tags you must use at least somewhere in your theme. If you don’t, then it’ll reject your theme when you try to submit it. And even if the moderator feedback turns out to be that it’s not a complete theme or something like that, once you submit it to the theme garden, by going here, you can get the link to install your themes and distribute them manually through your own Tumblr or other sites. While some people just give their code away and don’t bother with the theme garden, it’s much easier for people to use your themes if all they have to do is press the “Install” button, rather than copying and pasting a bunch of code, which might confuse some people. So all in all—it’s a good idea to submit your themes to the Theme Garden. Even if they don’t get accepted, you can still distribute the link manually!)
