Why do my photos on the copycat theme have weird borders?

Tumblr introduced a new post format a few years ago, and posts made from the mobile app use this format. Themes have no way of determining what the post type is for these, so they get rendered as text posts. If you want your posts to display correctly, you have to post them from desktop. Any posts you have already made will need to be deleted and reposted.

How do I change posts per page?

Go to your edit theme page. Scroll down to the bottom of the settings panel and click Advanced options. The setting will be listed here.

When I go to my blog on my phone, my theme doesn’t show up?

Go to your edit theme page. Scroll down to the bottom of the settings panel and click Advanced options. Make sure that Use default mobile theme and Enable Google AMP are both unchecked. Note that the Tumblr app doesn’t show custom themes, you have to look at it from Chrome/Safari

Can I move or delete the theme credit?

Do whatever you want. Just don’t claim the theme as your own work.
