If you have too many, I would say go for google-code-prettify. All you have to do is to include some javascript, css and then you're done.

Yes, there is a quick and easy way. If your post has the following permalink http://account.tumblr.com/post/1239802 then your edit page is here: http://account.tumblr.com/edit/1239802 You just change "post" in the URL to "edit". Note that this does not work if you put something after the post ID (for instance: http://...../1239802/my-post).

I think you misinterpret what the user interface is saying. There are two options in the video interface. Embed a video Upload a video You want option 1.

There is a Chrome extension named Tumblr Savior that helps you "blacklist" the users' posts on Tumblr. It lets you whitelist and blacklist posts with a word of your liking (or disliking, whichever you prefer).

Found a way of doing it! Wrap it in PermalinkPagination blocks: {block:PermalinkPagination} ...disqus code... {/block:PermalinkPagination} PermalinkPagination only shows on posts (actually, it only shows on posts if they have a previous and/or a next post, so it won't work on blogs with only one post) and not static pages. You can use it within the ...

This is an intended feature. You're supposed to be able to see "hey, I want that tag too" and click it to add both. The same thing happens when you push tab. The functionality you really want is to push the down arrow key til you've selected the correct tag, then press enter.

You wouldn't be able to use your queue for this, but you could set publish date/times for the posts you'd like Tumblr to post for you next year. You'll need to select "Publish on" where it normally says "Publish now" and you'll need to specify a date/time as well.

Yes it is removed from the blog post as well. These videos are embedded in your blog so there is a direct link to anything that happens on the hosting site. The video will appear to still be viewable on your site, but the moment you click play you should see otherwise. To keep it on your site, you will need to host the video yourself.

It may be tedious, but it looks like you'll have to include the HasTags block in each of the section types. Starting with the first you'll end up with this: {block:Text} <li class="post text"> <!-- HTML layout for Text posts --> {block:HasTags} {block:Tags} <a ...

I don't use Tumblr myself, but on all other markdown-using sites that I'm familiar with (StackExchance included), the syntax 1. Bullet one. 1. Bullet one. one. 2. Bullet one. two. 2. Bullet two gives the result you're looking for as far as generating correct HTML is concerned: Bullet one. Bullet one. one. Bullet one. two. Bullet two The appearance ...

The code that are trying to include shows tags under each post and needs to be included somewhere between {block:Posts} and {/block:Posts}. In addition, your posts must have tags if you want tags to be shown (that's why it's called HasTags). Tags are to be specified in the dedicated field when you're creating or editing a post. If you are talking about a ...

I don't think you can do that on Tumblr. All those "messy numbers" is the Tumblr's Globally Unique Post ID. The part that follows (the "slug") has no identifying purpose on Tumblr -- All that matters is the Post ID. For example, these are all equivalent URLs: my-blog.tumblr.com/post/123456789/my-post-slug-that-tumblr-generated ...

You'll need to switch from the editor that you're using to one that allows you better control of the HTML.

Switching to another editor will give you the ...

you can also try this free tool, written in java: http://code.google.com/p/tumblr-backup/ but it just backs up the photos. But an advantage is, that it does incremental backups, starts on each run where it left off the last time.

It appears that tags with hyphens have been dashed. Looks like Tumblr pulled support for tags with hyphens (-) as far back as December 2011. If you email them you'll get something along the following: Tumblr is no longer supporting tags with hyphens. This change has been made to ensure consistency in tags and tag searches. We are aware that this ...

It appears that another user recently had the same issue. In brief, the problem was server side and could only be fixed by support. The user was also required to clear his cookies.
