Tumblr: How to Make a Secondary Blog a Primary Blog

I recently shared a post about how to move a tumblr blog to a new owner. Unfortunately that only works for secondary blogs. It may be the case that either on your current account, or possibly a new one created specifically for your blog, you want your secondary blog to actually be your primary blog.

Sadly, this isn’t possible from tumblr’s perspective (nor does it seem like they’ll be changing it any time soon). However, you can “trick” the system into treating your secondary blog as your primary blog.

Note: This process renders your current primary blog pretty much useless. This is a workaround to get as close to the functionality as possible. Make a backup before you start and proceed at your own risk.

I recommend transferring your secondary blog to a new account before you begin.

How to Make a Secondary Tumblr Blog a Primary Tumblr Blog

  1. Log into your tumblr account and go to your current Primary blog.
  2. Click on Customize theme, then Edit HTML.
  3. Right after where it says <head> put the following code, where “http://inserttumblrurl.tumblr.com/” is the address of the Secondary blog that you want to be the Primary blog.
    [html]<script type=”text/javascript”>
    window.location.href = “http://inserttumblrurl.tumblr.com”
  4. Click Update Preview, then Appearance, then Save, then Close.
  5. Your old Primary blog will now always redirect to your Secondary blog. That means whenever you follow someone or ask a question, they’ll be directed to your Secondary blog if they click on your name.
  6. Optional: You may want to change the URL of your old Primary blog to something similar to your Secondary blog so that the name that appears when following people seems related to your blog. The easiest solution is adding a hyphen (‘-‘) in the name.

  2. Just a heads up– the above code doesn’t work on tumblr’s mobile version (obviously because they’re loading their own custom mobile CSS) UNTIL you go to Customize Theme and uncheck Use Optimized Mobile Layout on the “undesired” (“old”, “redirected from”, “etc”) tumblr blog.
    You may want to add this to your above steps to make the process more thorough…

    I get this and all, but I want to keep both of my blog. When I try this it work but now the blog that use to be the primary no longer work!!

  4. Eve says:

    Doesn’t work for me! Every time I’m trying to do this, I get a Security Warning: “We’ve detected suspicious behaviour on your account. To ensure your account stays safe, never enter your password on any site other than http://www.tumblr.com. Please reset your password before proceeding.”
    When I reset my password (which I have to do), all the changes are gone …

  5. Nisey says:

    My concern is the same as yours. I want to use BOTH my blogs & would like to be able to choose which account likes & follows stuff. Wish I knew this before I started a secondary blog. I would have just created a brand new account 🙁

  6. BSB says:

    Oh My Gawdddd – I have been DYING to fix this problem for sooo so long – THANK YOU a million-billion-trillion times for sharing this tip! Thank you!!!!

  7. Kelly says:

    I want to keep both blogs, but I want to change my secondary to my primary. like flip flop them. How can I do that?

  8. erincathleen says:

    This worked for me… kind of. Since I got duped into creating a secondary blog on my primary tumblr account and wanted to switch them, and didn’t know that you couldn’t do that when I made my second blog, I created a new tumblr account, added the new account as admin on the old account’s secondary blog, and thus had a blank untitled primary blog on the new account. So I followed these instructions to make my new account’s secondary blog into the primary. Then I did a test post, and it didn’t publish anywhere, despite me telling it to post to the secondary blog (which is really my primary now, or something). I’m so confused and frustrated… does changing this HTML mean you can’t post to the blog anymore?

  9. admin says:

    Erin–You should still be able to post in the secondary blog, which if you go directly to the secondary blog’s URL, the post should appear. All this HTML code does is re-direct anyone that goes to the primary address to the secondary address.

  10. Elise says:

    Thanks so much for this! Did exactly what I needed it to!

  11. Ash says:

    I did this, but the problem is, that when people try and follow the blog that i changed to my ‘primary’, it comes up on my dashboard that they are following my original primary blog instead?

  12. admin says:

    Ash–Assuming they click on “Follow” from your ‘primary’ blog, they should follow that one. The limitation, however is that when YOU follow someone, it will be from the actual primary blog. If they just re-follow you following them, it will be the primary blog not the ‘primary’ blog. Make sense? Unfortunately there’s no way around this (that I know of).

  13. CONNNFUZLED says:

    so here is my question… If people follow my blog (primary) that i followed them with than theyre gonna click and see my primary as my secondary if they come directly to me… but they wont see any of my secondary blog posts on their dash, which is what we actually want, so do i have to post stuff to my primary and secondary analogously??

  14. CONNNFUZLED says:

    Is there any way to undo this??

  15. admin says:

    That’s correct, if they follow your primary blog, they won’t see posts from the secondary blog, which is why you want them to follow your secondary blog (which they will do if they go directly to your site). They WON’T do that if they only click “follow” based on your following them. That’s the limitation.

    To undo it, just remove the script in step #4 and it’ll go back to the old way.

  16. Hernan says:

    same here

  17. Nicole says:

    everything works until i press save. it saves then i try to close but it says it wasn’t saved. the first time i just pressed save a few more times but when i tried to open my primary blog after it said “not found…” instead of just going to the blog that i want to be the primary. i’m not sure what i’m doing wrong.

  18. admin says:

    After you make the change in HTML, make sure you hit “Update Preview” then hit “Save.” Sometimes it takes a few attempts (at least for me, I think it’s an issue with Tumblr itself, even when making regular HTML changes).

  19. NEED HELPPP says:

    I have done this now but i want to reverse this…
    I cant view my primary account at all how do i reverse what i have done??????

  20. admin says:

    As posted above:

    “To undo it, just remove the script in step #4 and it’ll go back to the old way.”

  21. Ella says:

    ‘Laughs Served Daily’ has come up, its layout is someone else’s blog.. There is no “Customize” option only a “Follow” and “Dashboard”. However, this is my tumblr URL which has changed into someone else’s blog? What do I do to get rid of this?!

  22. admin says:

    It sounds like you may have used a redirect that isn’t to your blog. If that’s the case, and you want to change or undo the redirect, type in the following URL to go directly to the customize page:


    Where USERNAME is your login username to your primary blog. Note: make sure you are logged into tumblr at the time.

  23. nate says:

    thanks so much. I couldn’t figure this out. Tumblr should really add a feature to change between primary blogs

  24. Marvin says:

    So if I do this, then go to my following page and click unfollow and then follow again will it then show that I’m following them from my secondary blog? Or will I have to unfollow everyone and then go to their actual page and click follow again?

  25. admin says:

    Unfortunately there’s no way for you to follow FROM the secondary blog. People can follow the secondary blog if they go to the URL and click follow, but whenever you click on follow from your account, it will show it as coming from the primary blog. This is a limitation within Tumblr.

  26. Marvin says:

    Thanks for the reply. While I was awaiting your response, I carefully reread through previous comments and came to that conclusion. I’m pretty new to tumblr, but I already can tell it isn’t very user friendly regarding multiple blogs on one account.

  27. admin says:

    You’re exactly right. With tumblr, the best thing you can do is create an entirely new account. You can import blog posts but sadly cannot transfer likes, reblogs or followers when you do that.

    WordPress handles multi-sites much better.

  28. Jon Chang says:

    Thanks for the script! I’ve successfully copied the theme of my primary blog into a secondary blog of a separate account (like you suggested); however, now I’m having trouble posting from the secondary blog! My posts aren’t showing up at all.

    How can I fix this?
    Has anyone else encountered this problem?

  29. Jon Chang says:

    I’m having the same trouble. In addition, when I view the Secondary Blog I only have Follow or Dashboard option on the top right corner, instead of Customize. What do you think the problem is? How do you think I should fix this? Thanks!

  30. admin says:

    Did you post the script to the primary or secondary blog? It should be the primary blog (so it redirects to the secondary).

  31. admin says:

    If you only see Follow or Dashboard, it means you aren’t logged into an account with “customize” access to that blog. I would make sure you assigned “admin” privileges to the new user on the secondary blog.

  32. Samantha says:

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! omg haha i never knew you could do this. thanks again!

  33. Jon Chang says:

    I posted to the secondary. This makes a lot more sense. Thank you!

  34. lilly says:

    so the thing is,I tried to remove the script,but I can’t because I can’t get access to my old HTML…please,help me.this blog is my life. thank you.

  35. admin says:

    If you’re logged into tumblr, you can access your primary blog’s html by going to http://tumblr.com/customize

  36. Gillian says:

    when i try to do this i put it right after it says and when i save in all it doesnt work. it just puts what i typed in the the corner of my primary blog ?

  37. admin says:

    Are you putting the entire thing (including the “script” section and “< ! --" like tags? Also make sure you copying / pasting it on a new line and not in between characters in the theme.

  38. Fode says:


  39. admin says:

    The trick is to add the code in step #4 to your primary blog so that he redirects people to the secondary blog. Also the limitation mentioned above is that reblogs and comments from your account will still go to the primary blog (there’s no way to make it from your secondary blog).

  40. Corie says:

    I can’t access the script to undo this, can you tell me how??

  41. admin says:

    Go to tumblr.com/customize and log in using your original primary blog details. Then click on Edit HTML and remove the code.

  42. Wes says:

    I made my secondary blog my primary, but cannot access my old primary at all. Even going through the customize, I can see my primary description in the tool bar but no posts, pictures, no other settings, all of my writes are no available to me. I’d like to undo what I did and bring my blog back the way it was. How can I do that? I cannot find the code I inserted anywhere in the htlm.

  43. admin says:

    When you go to customize, do you get the toolbar on the left that shows “Edit HTML,” Title, Appearance, etc?

    If so, click on “Edit HTML” then scroll through the html markup to find the code you entered. Alternatively, once you’ve Edit HTML, you can also just do a search (Ctrl+F) for “window.location” to find it.

    As for the posts, you won’t be able to access them through the tumblr URL while you have this code installed. That’s why it’s recommended you transfer your secondary blog to second account before doing this: http://slashentrepreneur.com/website/how-to-move-a-tumblr-blog-to-a-new-owner/

  44. Wes says:

    No I didn’t but I did some other research and found some links to click that lead me to find it. I deleted the code and got everything back to normal. Thank you anyway.

  45. Alice says:

    Hi it works I guess, but when I submit an ask it still comes up as my OLD primary blog (same goes for when I follow people) and the sidebar on my dash board still tells me information about my OLD primary blog. I’ve changed it back for now but I was wondering if there was a way to fix this?? 🙁

  46. admin says:

    Sadly there’s not a way to fix this (it’s a limitation from tumblr that they seem to have no interest in fixing). What we’re actually doing is just making it so whenever someone visits PRIMARY BLOG it automatically redirects them to SECONDARY BLOG. It doesn’t account for things like asking questions, following people, or your dashboard. The closest thing you can do is follow the instructions to move the blog to a new owner, where you’ve created a second blog that’s very close to the one you want to move, and then when you’re following, etc, it’s at least similar to your secondary blog.

  47. Savanna says:

    I’m very happy that I found a bit of a solution, however, people keep following my primary which is supposedly blank. My secondary is the only one that has actual posts and I’ve had to message each person (sheepishly) to follow the secondary instead. So even if they click my username and it links them to the secondary, those who follow back without checking the blog first aren’t going to see any of the posts on their dash… I suppose there isn’t a way around this yet but I’m wondering if other people are having the same issue. There are a lot of people following my blank blog now -_- If only I had just created a new account, because this secondary has over 500 posts now and it would be way too difficult to reblog each one to my primary (with post limit and everything). Thank you for the script, though!

  48. admin says:

    Yeah, unfortunately I don’t know of another way to do it. The biggest problem is as you mentioned–if you follow someone and they just follow that username back, it’ll be at the primary blog not the secondary. I haven’t found a way around that yet.

  49. Tiffany says:


  50. Miranda Ceane says:

    How do you get it back to the way it was?

  51. admin says:

    See my response to CONNNFUZLED below (basically just remove the script you added in step 4).

  52. Marie-Charlotte Carrier says:

    how can I reverse this 🙁 …..

  53. When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks a lot!

  54. Adam says:

    At first i messed up but i fixed it and it works great! thanks

  55. help says:

    i completely messed both of my blogs can somebody help please 🙁

  56. Hey yeah so the same thing happened to me, but I figured out how to do it! —

    So what you want to do is go to the settings menu on your dashboard, then go to the settings zone of your old primary blog. From there go to the “Theme: Customize” button thing. from there just change the HTML back to what it was and you should be all set. Worked for me.

  57. lauren says:

    i didn’t read that i should’ve copied my old blog’s code, and now i’ve lost it, and have two of the same blog. please please please help

  58. itsjspears says:

    i messed it up please help…

  59. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    Just undo the switch by deleting the code. If you’re logged into tumblr, you can access your primary blog’s html by going to http://tumblr.com/customize and just search for what you added in step #4.

  60. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    See above comments on how to undo the code.

  61. ben says:

    This is a great solution to tumblr’s me no let you changey you primary blog blog!


  62. Sofia says:

    omg can i just say that u saved my life. i did this, couldn’t get onto my primary blog and was completely freaking out.

  63. Danae says:

    Why doesn’t it work for me??? I have tried the steps over and over but my primary blog still stays my primary and my secondary still stays my secondary…does anybody now why? Thanks!

  64. Danae says:

    Why won’t this work for me? Can someone please help! thank you!

  65. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    Danae–Did you make sure you were making the changes on the blog that is currently your primary blog?

  66. Hayley says:


  67. Danae says:

    thank you for responding and yes i’m 100% sure…:((

  68. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    What are the two tumblr urls that are you using? Which one is primary and which is secondary?

  69. Koral says:

    Hi, so this didn’t really work. I created a new account to manage my secondary account, and then did this to the uncreated blog with my new account. But after doing this, it doesn’t redirect when people click on the url. It takes me to my primary blog with my secondary url at the top. Help please?

  70. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    This likely means there was a problem with the copy and pasting of the code. Make sure you put it in the of the HTML and that you include everything (including the script part).

  71. Danae says:

    should i post the links here?

  72. renee says:

    you can’t.

  73. renee says:

    i agree. i just sent them an email about it. maybe if we all send enough emails to tumblr asking for the feature nicely, they’ll work on it?

  74. renee says:

    this person is yelling

  75. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    That or send them to admin@dtwebsites.com

  76. unknown says:

    thankyouuu @reblogblogblog!!! OHMYGOD!

  77. Carmie says:

    I keep trying, (both typing it myself and copy-and-pasting) but it still will not redirect. I am putting it below , on the next several lines. Should I delete any of the following code? Any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

  78. Carmie says:

    Ah, it worked! It just needed me to complain first. Thanks!

  79. Alex says:

    I put the code in and saved it, and then I changed the name of my primary blog to something more similar to my secondary. And it worked, but now I can’t change this back, because tumblr apperantly still sees my primary blog as what it was called before. So I can’t save any changes that I do when I am customizing my primary blog. And when you for instance click on my primary blog on post that I have made it won’t redirect from there, because the old name is still there aswell. Does anyone know how I can change back?

  80. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    From a previous comment:

    Just undo the switch by deleting the code. If you’re logged into tumblr, you can access your primary blog’s html by going to http://tumblr.com/customize and just search for what you added in step #4.

  81. Alex says:

    Thanks, but it still doesn’t work. Because it won’t let me save the changes. When I press save this comes up: “You have been logged out. Please log in so we can save your work”. And I think this happens because tumblr still thinks my primary blog has the old name even though I have changed it.

  82. Joanna says:

    I sent a message to Tumblr asking them if they can enable switching the primary and secondary blogs. I got a response quickly and the person who replied, Doug, said he would share the idea with the rest of the team. Hopefully they will change it! Thanks for this idea by the way! 🙂

  83. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    I haven’t seen this issue before. It may be that it will take a few days for all DNSs to get updated and then you’ll be able to make the change. I would try it again to see if you have any luck now. If that still doesn’t work, you might try changing both tumblr names to something different (from each other and from what it was before), see if you can make the change, and then change the tumblr names back.

  84. AL says:

    Has this been fucked with?
    I typed in my blog

  85. AL says:

    I lost both of my blogs and now I can’t restore them

  86. vee says:

    i dont know which part of the code to put in! help!

  87. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    Put all of the code listed in step 3 in the < head > of your site.

  88. Slash Entrepreneur says:

    That’s just a fake URL, you’ll put your secondary blog in place of insertumblrurl.

    Also this is completely reversible, just remove the code from the primary blog (see previous comments for how to do that).

  89. NY says:

    this doesn’t change the fact that you still cannot follow people and ask questions with your secondary blog right

  90. Camy says:

    This is gold. Thank you!

  91. vanecelina says:

    I can’t see the code on the primary blog. What should i do to remove it?

  92. That is so awesome.. I searched for hours for a solution..thank you, thank you, thank you.

    when i put the code in and look back onto my page it still has my primary account as the same, i kind of want to delete my primary account but if i delete it then my second account which is my main one will delete too. so i tried pasting the code in as the instructions said but whenever i check back on the dashboard the primary account is still the primary one and and hasnt been changed or anything. can someone please help!

  104. koudoki says:

    This worked great for me. I wanted all my “likes” to reference one of my secondary blogs. And since my primary blog only had a few posts, I simply created yet another secondary blog, reposted (and backdated) my primary blog content. Now I can redirect my primary blog (using your awesome js snippet) to my other secondary blog. I’ve renamed my primary blog to something related to the secondary so it won’t be too confusing, and also made the avatars the same.

    This solution is particularly slick, since I can now redirect to a different secondary blog (including even my former primary blog) at any time in the future if my “like” and reblog interests change. This is obviously how Tumblr should manage accounts anyways…


  105. ZoeyKK says:

    it didnt even work for me… it changed my tumblr page to some other blog.

  106. s.u. morales says:

    Worked and it only took me 10 mins to set everything up! So great.

  107. Melody says:

    This was perfect! Thank you!

  108. Matt says:

    That’s what it’s supposed to do. This is the code:

    window.location.href = “http://inserttumblrurl.tumblr.com”

    Change the http://inserttumblrurl.tumblr.com to something else. For instance,

    window.location.href = “http://google.com”

    That code will make your site redirect to google.

  109. Amena says:

    I removed the script but it’s still connecting both of my blogs under one. This is what line 4 looks like: {block:SearchPage}{lang:Search results for SearchQuery} • {/block:SearchPage}{block:PostSummary}{PostSummary} • {/block:PostSummary}{Title}

    How do I change it in order to keep both blogs as separate entities as before?

  110. Mani says:

    how can i undo this?
    now i cant see my previous primary blog

  111. Sarah says:

    At first I didn’t see what the point of this was since you still can’t follow others on your secondary blog, but now I see that when I follow people on my * real* primary blog and they click on my url, they’ll still be redirected and they won’t notice (hopefully) I have 2 different blogs and my primary blog is actually empty. Lol.
    So I guess I’ll just treat my dashboard as if it was actually my real blog and all I have to do when I reblog something is post it onto my real secondary. Ok, great.

  112. Sarah says:

    You can still follow people on your real primary blog and when people have seen you followed them or asked questions and they click on your blog they’ll be redirected to you’re real secondary blog and think it is your primary blog and follow you.

  113. Sarah says:

    Good thing most people actually check the blog they’re about to follow first, haha.

  114. jake beech says:

    this just made my http://www.naked-cuddles-and-kisses blog into this wierd blog called ‘welcome’ and i dont know how to change it back because it doesnt have a customise option eugh how do i change it back to its original settings?

  115. Nicole says:

    thanks, this helped me, a lot 🙂

  116. Amy says:

    I did this and everything is fine it’s just when I ask a question it still uses my old primary blog and not the blog i want to ask with. i thought this is the solution everyone was using for that problem?

    Thank you for the rest of the help though! T_T

  117. Ellie says:

    Wow! This works! I am very thankful! I could hug you right now!

    oh my god THANK YOU!!!

  120. Necromantid says:

    so please give me a hand :’)

  121. Andy Ferrari says:

    Thank you! I’ve been struggling with this for months! Tumblr should really change that =/

  122. Vivi says:

    I tried this, but I can’t find the code anymore and I’m really upset because I can’t get unto my first blog anymore, which was my personal one! I can post unto it, but I can’t access it anymore! Help! 🙁

  123. Madeleine says:

    Great and thank you so much! But it only works as long as you are on the computer, if you’ve got the app on your phone, it doesn,t seem work.. My primary blog will then not redirect to my secondary blog. What do I do? Can I fix it?

  124. T says:

    THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS! I used to have a tumblog where I’d post personal things supposedly for my closest friends only. The username got out cos I made the stupid mistake of liking some friend’s post so I immediately had to hide my old blog without deleting it (for memories’ sake). Thank you thank youuuuuu!

    Eternally grateful,
    T 🙂

  125. Stephane BDC says:

    Thanks a lot it works fine.

  126. Erica says:

    This is such an awesome hack! Thank you so much!

  127. Phaedra says:

    Hi there! I was just wondering if I do this, will it delete my current primary blog on Tumblr? Because I definitely do not want that happening.

  128. Sar says:

    So when I changed my secondary over to my primary, all the post from my old primary, stayed on primary. So my old posts that I don’t want anymore are still on my new primary blog. Is this supposed to happen?

  129. Jessie says:

    Hi there!

    Did what you have said above . Just recently moved all of my posts from tumblr to my new site blogspot. Now I want to delete my tumblr, Does it affect my tumblr posts that has been move to blogspot? If i do it my tumblr posts will be gone too from blogspot?

    I want to keep a 1 site and that’s blogspot. Please advise.


  130. alex says:

    Thank you so much for this! It worked perfectly! Super helpful.

    However. (like someone else in the comments mentioned) you might want to edit and mention that this won’t work on mobile unless you go customize your original primary blog and uncheck the “use default mobile layout” button.

  131. Hey! This is an awesome work around. I’m having a hard time figuring out one thing about the practical use of this. If, after making this code change, I unfollow some one and then follow them, will they see that someone has started following them and then, if they choose to, follow the mock primary blob, getting posts from the mock primary blog on their dash?

    If it wasn’t for the consensus that Tumblr is too lenient with
    plagiarists, and my personal observations concerning privacy,

  155. Ange says:

    I successfully redirected my blog a while back.
    Now I want to get rid of the redirect.
    Can you tell what to do please, do I just delete everything between the
    I forgot what I added and or replaced and adding the primary blog URL in place of the secondary blog URL has the screen flashing from being redirected to itself, at least I guess that is why.
    Many thanks for your help

    window.location.href = “http://inserttumblrurl.tumblr.com”

  156. Ange says:

    It deleted the coding lines so again as plain text what code should I replace or delete between the SCRIPT coding so it reverts back to my primary blog

    Thank you!

  157. Ange says:

    No worries I figured the whole script needs to be removed by looking at html on other blogs I have.
    Many thanks anyway for the initial redirect code!

  158. M says:

    How do I check whether this work? I followed everything you said but I’m not sure if it works

  159. M says:

    We only have to paste this bit right:
    window.location.href = “http://inserttumblrurl.tumblr.com”
