How To Remove Source Via Link on Tumblr

Tired of getting those “Via” links added automatically without your concern?. Some tumblr themes have the code that inserts the source link attribute and display it without the need for your approval

So, if you finally get rid and remove the source link on your Tumblr, follow the steps below

How To Delete The Source Link on Tumblr

  1. Go To Customize Theme >> Edit HTML and locate the following tag {block:ContentSource}
  2. Also, try to the find the closing tag for that same parameter, it should not be far away from the opening tag {/block:ContentSource}
  3. Now, what you specifically need to do in order to remove the source link, is to wrap ALL what’s inside the ContentSource tags with the following snippets:

  4. <!-- and -->
  5. Check the example below so you better wrasp the idea, NOTE where the lines mentioned above are exatly added:

  6. {block:ContentSource}
    <!-- {SourceURL}{block:SourceLogo}<img src="{BlackLogoURL}"
    width="{LogoWidth}" height="{LogoHeight}" alt="{SourceTitle}" />
    {block:NoSourceLogo}{SourceLink}{/block:NoSourceLogo} -->

You are, in fact, hiding the source on your Tumblr, not fully removing it, but this is actually better, since you just have to take out those snippets in case you want the “Via” links back. You can also try indeed fully deleting everything that’s inside the ContentSource tags, but you risk messing up your theme.

    Hi there.
    I wanted to remove those annoying via links, but unfortunately I cannot find where this {contentsource} block is. I searched 3 times, used ctrl+f function, but its just not there… maybe somebody knows why that is so? What should I do?

    I used your code and it messed up my blog…
    When I saved this, I couldn’t see anything on my blog, not even the ‘Customize’ or ‘Follow’ button. Everything’s gone! I tried to go on Settings and click on my blog & go to Customize from there. It leads me to the customize page, but it’s like frozen! When I click on ‘close’ or ‘Themes’ or ‘save’ or whatever it doesn’t do anything! I even tried changing my url and it still doesn’t work! Please help me!
    My currrent URL is
    My old URL was so-monotone

    The thing is I can’t find the {block:ContentSource} anywhere in my theme. I tried everything with search and stuff. Could it possibly have a different name bc of the theme or something. Because I do have “Source” or “Via” written everywhere so must be SOMEWHERE in my theme. Please help me :)
