    Question: is it possible to make your background image, on your tumblr, a link? (I'm a noob at HTML. Haven't touched that stuff since Myspace, LOL.) My Tumblr is nothing but pictures and a few words, and if I could turn my background (which is blank) into a clickable link, I would then be able to redirect a ton of traffic somewhere that will help me in the long run.

    Additionally, I'm a little new here. I am Hamskeet, you can call me Ham for short. I don't really post much but for almost a month now, I've been reading and studying everything I can from this forum. Currently trying to all of everyone's contributed ideas into something that can generate me a little more flow, which can really help my butt out as a college student. If I can make something happen, I will give back to this forum. But right now, I need your help!

    So if anyone can please answer my question, that would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!

    But I am looking for the answer to my question. I feel like it would increase traffic from my Tumblr to elsewhere. Every person click counts, leading to a potential sale, etc.

    Here's an idea. Since you can place "banner" (whether it float on top or the side) more than likely, you can stretch that "banner" (with a linkback) by 1000% or however much percentage it takes to fill up the screen. This works since the main content will be the overlay. You will need to know how to style CSS though, and a bit of HTML.
