    Just got an account at qplus.io and i'm reblogging a lot of picture from other tumblrs.

    However, on some pictures, once you clickover them, it redirects me to the original sharers page.

    Do you guys know to change that?

    Here's what i meant with it: http://fithealthfood.tumblr.com/post/127069230966/get-your-dream-body

    Once you click on the image, you also get redirected to another website.

    I don't think you can change that. It likely relates to the setup/theme being used on the Tumblr accounts in question. Maybe someone else has some strategies to make it work, but if it's just pulling the images from the page itself, or from RSS - you'll be stuck with the link as is.

    Check in the browser. If you can reblog it in the browser without linking to the original post, it should be possible in bots. If not in the browser, then not.

    The link is called a 'source'. It's there for the original poster to provide credit / attribution to the place the content came from [like how pinterest 'pins' link to the website the content came from. Except you need to do it manually on Tumblr when posting photos. If the original poster doesn't provide this information, the post itself is used as the 'source'.
    Since the intention is to provide 'credit' or 'attribution' to the owner of the content - someone reposting the content can't change the 'source'. It comes from the person who posted it or the place that the person who posted it entered in the 'source' URL.

    Regardless of what tumblr account it was reposted to, when a user clicks on an image they go to the content owner's website [or their tumblr by default if they left the source blank]. If you found a way to manipulate the field when reposting photos - tumblr would shut your account down.

    your robot/scrapper does not handle removing the source link for these pictures. make a request to the coder so they can update.
