via http://ift.tt/2al94Pg and [tumblr.com profile] nonukesthanks:

tumblr implemented on-blog advertising, which is why blog theme html keeps getting messed up.

To shut it off:
  1. Click the ‘person’ icon in the top right
  2. Select ‘Settings’
  3. Select your blog from the column on the right
  4. Scroll down to the ‘Advertising’ section
  5. Shut that shit off.

You have to do it for all blogs individually, including side blogs.





I saw my first ad today, it blocked the blog content and I couldn’t figure out what was going on for quite a while. Blergh. cross-posted at http://msilverstar.dreamwidth.org/509323.html

Two of mine were off by default. Huh. I've been judged by Tumblr.

All of mine were on by default, including the ones I haven't used for months and maybe years and no one follows anyway. Huh.

My medieval one is too gruesome for Tumblr's advertisers. If your content is too far out there, it's off by default. Heh heh heh.

So that's why my tumblr theme suddenly disappeared! I've turned it off now but the theme is gone for good. Oh, well, I guess it's time to find a new one.

I hope the new themes are more readable, I need to make the letters bid and most themes just react badly.

I've been trying to find themes that have readable fonts and don't mess up posts that have a million reblogs. They're sadly difficult to find. Though maybe I just don't look hard enough and suck at html that badly.
