Tumblr themes: Create a redirect

Setting up a redirect page

  1. Click “Add a page” in the Pages section of your Customize menu.
  2. Select "Redirect" from the dropdown menu.
  3. Type a page URL after the slash (/). For example, if you're redirecting to Twitter, you could use /twitter. If you're redirecting to Facebook, you could use /facebook. Or you could use /sleepingbag or /dannydevito. You can be as straightforward or as random as you want with these things. Totally up to you.
  4. In the "Redirect to" field, enter the URL you’d like to link to.
  5. Enable "Show a link to this page."
  6. Click “Save.”
  7. Wait a bit to see your redirect appear on your site.

If your redirects aren't working

Make sure you’ve included “http://” at the beginning of the URL in the page edit box.

If your redirects still aren't working

In order to prevent spam and other types of abuse on Tumblr, redirects are locked on new accounts. After you’ve used the account for a while and do things like following other blogs and choosing your blog’s appearance, the feature will be unlocked so you can use it.
