How to Hide Archive and RSS on Tumblr

Most Tumblr themes include a link to RSS and Archive by default. Generally speaking, these items cannot be hidden using theme settings. Instead, you will need to remove the Tumblr theme code associated with Archive and RSS to hide them from your blog. The code for your theme might seem elaborate, but you'll only need to make three simple changes to hide Archive and RSS from your blog.

Step

Press "CTRL + F" to perform a find and replace, enter "" in the "Search for" box and "" in the "Replace with" box, and then click "Replace."

Enter "<a href="/archive"" in the "Search for" box.

Step

Type "" directly after the "" tag.
