Tumblr offers full access to their blog's CSS and HTML design elements. Although many users choose to use the pre-fabricated templates of the website, others have opted to build their own blogs. Prefabricated templates can be edited to reflect specific design changes with the Tumblr Theme Customisation website, or the user can delete the entire theme and develop an entirely customized blog design. In comparison to other content management systems, however, Tumblr is unique in the creation of its source code, requiring that CSS and HTML be included in the same file.
