Okay, after several messages regarding the fact that I have customised links at the top of my page, I’m going to attempt to write a tutorial on it so I don’t have to keep repeating myself.
If you don’t understand what I mean, please visit my blog homepage to see.
First of all, check if your theme allows custom links (easier than messing with the HTML/CSS)
Click the “Customise” tab on the right hand side of the page, and then click “Appearance” when it appears in the top left hand side of the page. Here on some themes you can add customise links. I know for a fact this theme allows this.
If this isn’t available,then you can always on your blog under “Customise”, click “Theme” then “Edit Custom HTML”
Under this you want to look for coding like this:
<a href=”http://hellotallsara.tumblr.com”>All Posts</a>
<a href=”http://hellotallsara.tumblr.com/tagged/101_things_in_1001_days”>101 things to do in 1001 days</a>
<a href=”http://hellotallsara.tumblr.com/ask”>Ask a question/ message </a>
Coding that includes the following <a href”“></a> is a link. So you’ll need to copy and paste that, with the link and title you want to link to, for example:
<a href=”hellotallsara.tumblr.com”>Text you want to be displayed</a>
So that will look like this: Text you want to be displayed and will link through to my blog as that is the link I specified.
After changing it, update preview to see if it’s how you want it. Afterwards, save it and you’re sorted.
I would advise always copying the original code of your theme into a text document though to ensure you have a back-up of it.
One final thing, if you want categories like I have, you need to tag your posts, and then the url will be “http://yourusername.tumblr.com/tagged/the text that is tagged”
E.g. the url of my posts tagged with the word “Blog” would be “http://hellotallsara.tumblr.com/tagged/Blog”. And the part that you would put in your coding would look like this:
Which would look like this: Blog
As I get more questions of how to do other things, I may post more tutorials. I hope this, as my first tutorial, has proved somewhat useful.

Over and out.
