DNS Setup for Tumblr

I’m trying to set up my CNAME for the custom domain of my Tumblr blog. Recently I just switched to Cloudflare from GoDaddy and previously it worked just fine. When I set typed in my subdomain in the settings it says my CNAME is not pointing to Tumblr, and it is asking me to even set my A records to Tumblr’s, though that was not necessary in the guidelines.

I’m new to this so I hope you can help!


Make sure that CNAME is set to :grey: DNS Only.

Where can I set CNAME to DNS Only? I couldn’t find such option on my DNS tab.

You have to click on that record to edit it, then click on the :orange: to toggle it to :grey:, then save.

That works. Thank you so much!
