Want to create a custom page on your Tumblr? While the usual Archive or Ask pages are good enough, you can create a custom page for anything you want! It's both quick and easy, so read on to find out how.


  1. Create an account on Tumblr. Navigate to the Tumblr website, and if you don't have an account, click on the Sign up button. If you do, enter your email and password to log in.
  2. View your account settings. Once you have logged in, click on the gear icon at the top of the page to access your account.
  3. Click on your blog name. On the left side of the page, find your blog title. It may be Untitled, or you may have named it. It will be the one with your avatar, as shown:
  4. Click the Customize button in the Theme section. This will let you pick from a variety of pre-set themes, or create your own.
  5. Name your page. On the left side of the screen are the setup functions for your blog. In the middle of the left sidebar is an area where you can give your blog a name, and a brief description. Do that now.
  6. Open up Pages. Near the bottom, you will see the Pages section. Click to expand it—it will show you an additional item, "+ Add a page." Click that now.
  7. Choose your layout. A new window will appear that will let you set up your new page. At the very top is the layout for your new page. You have three basic choices: Standard Layout, Custom Layout, and Redirect.
    • Standard Layout will create a page with the same layout as your current Tumblr theme. This is the easiest to work with, and will generally look the best.
    • Custom Layout will let you create a custom page on your Tumblr, but without your Tumblr theme, so you have to input all the HTML yourself. You can generally copy and paste HTML from a full-featured HTML editor like Dreamworks.
    • Redirect will create a redirect to a specified Web site, instead of being an actual page on your Tumblr. For example, you could show some of your favorite Web sites on your Tumblr homepage using some of these.
  8. Choose the URL and other info for your page. Each layout type will have slightly different input fields.
    • Page URL (all layouts). The page URL will be tagged at the end of your standard URL, and is the address that people will have to type into the address bar to access your page. Do not use spaces when creating this URL.
    • Page Title. (Standard layout only). This title will appear at the top of the window. The current page title in the setup window is Add page. To set a page title when creating a Custom Page, use the HTML tag "<title>" or use your HTML editor's Title function. The redirect layout does not need a page title.
    • Redirect to. (Redirect layout only). Enter the URL that visitors will be directed to when they enter the Page URL. For example, if I wanted visitors to land on the wikiHow home page when they visited, say, the "Writings" page on my Tumblr page, my Page URL would end with /writings/, and my redirect field would contain
    • Show a link to this page. This lets you add a link to your new page from your website.


  • Once you have finished creating your custom page, you can always go back to the Pages menu to add more. Just click on "Add a page" again.
  • After opening up the Pages menu, you should see a list of all the custom pages you have. By clicking and dragging you can move them up and down to change which order they appear in on your Tumblr page. The Edit box will allow you to edit the pages again and the cross on the right hand side will delete that page.
