    I need to find a way to change the blog title of a tumblr without using the http://tumblr.com/customize page. Is there any way to do it via a HTML/CSS in a blog post (as long as that blog post remains on the homepage)? If so, any ideas what that code would look like?

    SEnuke can't manipulate the form on the customize page so I have to find alternative ways to change titles...

    Myownhero,

    Is the theme you are trying to edit custom? If not I'm not really sure if you can change it using these methods. You could try using Google chrome to look at what code and related files are making the title and that may lead you in the right direction. Just right click on the title and select inspect element,

    Also, if you find that you cannot manipulate it in the way you want, you could always make a custom template.

    Here is a tutorial on how to do that,

    Best,

    You change this within SENuke itself when you set up via the wizard, unless you mean going back in and changing it after its posted? Then you have to use the customize page

    This is using the script editor (while the old built-in Tumblr Social Network profile will still work if you manually add it it still doesn't change the blogs title). I'm not using the wizard or even SEnuke like normal (I'm not creating backlinks with it), changing the title of the blog posts is easy but of the actual blog itself I can't figure out how using SEnuke.

    Since I can't use the tumblr.com/customize page I can't edit the theme or anything like that so customizing the HTML is out. I tried enabling HTML and tweaking some stuff in a blog post to see if it would change the main layout but I haven't gotten anything to work.
