Most basic Tumblr themes allow you to hide your blog title with a simple switch in your customization settings -- flip the switch off, and the title disappears. However, if you're using a custom theme that doesn't include this switch, your only options are to switch themes or edit the theme's HTML code manually. Every Tumblr theme is coded a little differently, so it may take a little trial and error to make the right changes.

Flip the Title Switch

Step 1

Select your blog from the dashboard screen, and then click "Customize" to access your blog's layout settings.

Step 2

Scroll down the left margin until you see the Appearance settings, and then set the Show Blog Description setting to the "Off" position.

Step 3

Click "Save," and then select "Exit."

Edit the HTML Code

Step 1

Select your blog from the dashboard screen, and then click "Customize" to access your blog's layout settings.

Step 2

Click "Edit HTML" to view the theme's HTML code.

Step 3

Press "Ctril-F" to bring up the search option, and then enter "{Title}" (without the quotes) into the search field. This is the title variable used in all Tumblr themes.

Step 4

Click the down arrow to find the correct line of code. There are several places that use the "{Title}" variable. The line of code you want is in the "" section, not the "" section, and is often found near the top.

Step 5

Insert "" after the line of code (without the quote marks). These tags set the line off as a comment without deleting it, allowing you to go back and undo the changes if you change your mind or accidentally mess something up. Keep in mind that the line of code may display on more than one line in your editing window.

Step 6

Click "Update Preview" to see if you made the right changes, and either modify or undo the changes if the title doesn't disappear.

Step 7

Click "Save" to keep your changes, or click the back arrow next to the gear icon to exit the HTML view without saving.
