I would like to present a more structured list of my posts on Tumblr.

Is there any way I can do this from within Tumblr itself?

Tumblr offers the following ways to list posts automatically:

  • There are the usual pages: page/2, page/3, …

  • There are tag pages (where foobar is a tag):

    • newest first: /tagged/foobar, /tagged/foobar/page/2, …
    • oldest first: `/tagged/foobar/chrono, /tagged/foobar/chrono/page/2, …
  • There are date pages: /day/2013/09/27, /day/2013/09/28, …

  • There is the archive: /archive

  • There are sitemaps: /sitemap.xml (resp. /sitemap1.xml, /sitemap2.xml, …)

With Custom Pages you could link and organize all your posts manually.

With the API you could program a custom application.

mm. not what I meant. I just want to show my archive in a less fancy way, more dropdown-oldfashioned blogger like. I don't understand why this is still not possible. –  Thieme Hennis Sep 28 '13 at 16:16

@ThiemeHennis: Yes, I can imagine that none of these solutions satisfy you. But that is everything that Tumblr offers. For everything else, you’d need to build it yourself with the API or use a tool someone else built with the API. –  unor Sep 28 '13 at 19:56

I've read of someone having success with adding their own Tumblr RSS to the sidebar, to get a chronological list of posts. With some CSS, you might be able to achieve what you want.

Do you have a link? –  Thieme Hennis Dec 20 '13 at 13:35
    
Google is your friend. Others have done this, so the CSS is out there. There may even be Tumblr support for this, by now. –  Zo219 Dec 30 '13 at 4:02
    
I meant to say, your feed exists, your task would be to make those links match your theme, in nice lists. Drop-down, not sure. Got a sidebar? –  Zo219 Dec 31 '13 at 4:22
