How to Make a Sidebar on Tumblr

By Shawn Farner

Tumblr is one choice that companies have when it comes to setting up an easy-to-use blog on a Web-based blog platform. One advantage Tumblr has over other competitors is that it's user-friendly; in a few steps, you can customize your Tumblr blog and add a new look or feature, such as a sidebar. If you want to add a sidebar to your company's Tumblr blog, you can do so from the blog's settings page.

Click the "Gear" icon to open the settings page.

Click on the blog you'd like to add a sidebar to and then click the "Customize" button.

Scroll down the settings sidebar until you see an option called either "Left Sidebar" or "Right Sidebar." Click the check box next to this option to add that sidebar to your blog.

Click the "Save" button to save your changes and add a sidebar to your Tumblr blog.
