<meta name=”if:Enable Know Anon” content=”0” /><script type=”text/javascript” src=””></script><script type=”text/javascript” src=”{block:IfEnableKnowAnon}&enabled=true{/block:IfEnableKnowAnon}”></script>

Above is the “Know Anon” code that allows you to expose any hateful anons you wish at your own whim. If you know anyone who’s struggling with anonymous hate, reblog this for them.

  • How to install

Simply copy the above code and paste it right after the <head> portion of the HTML coding on your blog. This is with the jQuery script included, so everything should be covered. Once you’ve done this, update and save, then exit your customize page.

Re-enter your customize page, and under “appearance” should be a button called “Enable Know Anon”, which may be on or off automatically, depending. Flip the switch to enable or disable it, then save.

  • How to use

When you get anonymous hate or anon messages you find offensive, simply exit your Inbox, enter your Customize page, flip the switch to “on”, then save and exist. Re-enter your inbox, and any and all anonymous messages will be exposed with a URL, if they have one. Note that this includes everything, not just the hate. Another thing to note is that, once you expose anons in the inbox, you can’t un-expose them. Flipping the switch back to “off” does nothing.

Answer a message people thought was on anon, and gee, they’ll get a nasty little surprise, hmm? It’s better than a fake anonymous button because while you still can’t control who it exposes, you can control when to do so.

Remember though, that this isn’t the only way to stop anonymous hate. As always, there’s simply the “turn anonymous asks off” button. And thanks to the update from a few months ago, anons CAN be blocked.


That little hand right there? That’s the ignore button. It’s present on all asks sent, whether anon or otherwise. When you block an anon, you have the option to report them for spam or harassment, and it will permanently block them. It also blocks the IP address and computer, so that person can’t take advantage of extra accounts to continue sending you hate. It effectively wipes that person right out of your Tumblr life. They cannot contact your blog again, ever.

For the website that gives you the Know Anon code, with or without jQuery script, in case that causes trouble (most themes come with it pre-installed, but not all), go here.

[ Goodness, wow thank you very much for letting me know this existed! That was very considerate of you! ]


Here you go. <3

Google Chrome’s update messed with a lot of the fonts used in my themes, so I’m sorry to all the people messaging me telling me they’re not working. I’m trying to figure out how to fix it ugh 

WebKit Filter properties


Recently,most of the theme makers are using different kinds of filters to give different styles to their themes or their own blogs. How many themes have the option for Grayscale Photos and Photosets,right? Other theme makers use the Blurfilter to make a cool effect,also. So I’d like to present all the properties WebKit filters can offer.

  • Grayscale
    Most theme makers are using it now to make more monochrome themes.But if you’d like so,you can make a balance of it:Instead of only colors or grayscale,you can make the photos “kind of” grayscale, just by using .5 or .3 instead of only 0 or 1.
  • Blur
    Another filter frenquently used,makes your layout more unique. On this case,you won’t use just 1 or 6, you must put px after the value.For example: blur(2px).
  • Sepia
    Just like the name says, this filter allows you to give the photos a old look. To use it, you just have to put values like the ones on the grayscale filter.
  • Saturate
    This one is not really used much with CSS, but those who make graphics probably understands what it means. On this one, you use numbers like 2 or 4 to increase the saturation.
  • Opacity
    All kinds of themes use this filter, this allows you to make the elements more transparent  so you can see what’s behind it, or even make hidden elements. Like grayscale, you’ll use values from 0 to 1.
  • Brightness
    Also, like the name says, this filter allows you to make the brightness of a image or anything else more intense. Also uses values from 0 to 1.
  • Contrast
    This one now allows you to give your elements a normal or intense contrast. It may be a interesting filter to make more colorful themes. Values variate from 0 to 1.
  • Hue-rotate
    Another exception,instead of 0 to 1,you can use a whole number,but using the deg unit,like this: hue-rotate(120deg). This one allows you,how you can see, to rotate elements, making different effects and forms for your themes.
  • Invert
    Another interesting effect,it inverts the color scheme of your photos.Most cellphone cameras these days have this effect too. Also use it with values from 0 to 1.

How can I use it?

All these filters can be really useful to create various effects, but how to use it?
After creating the element you’d like to customize with these filters, add on the bolded part:

.example_box { background-color:white; width:30px; height:30px; -webkit-filter:blur(2px) grayscale(.5) saturate(6);;

You can substitute the italic parts for the filters and values you’d like to use, since this was just an example. So,basically,you have this :

-webkit-filter: filter name(value);

If you still can’t understand what I mean,you can acess this site: davidwalsh, that explains the properties.
NOTE: These are WebKit Filters. It won’t work on all browsers.  I’d highly recommend you to use Chrome.
In case you’d like to use the grayscale filter,many theme makers have a cross-browser code for it on their blogs. Just look at their resources!
