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. Check some examples and here is the setup: Download a distribution Include the script and stylesheets in your document (you will need to make sure the css and js file are on your server, and adjust the paths in ...

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.

Another way to do this will be a regular "Add a Text" Post From there you can use html and YouTube embed option (using the share link at the ...

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). So, add the person's Tumblr handle in the list of blacklisted words and the post won't show up fully in the dashboard. You can at any time remove ...

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.

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 ...

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.

You'll need to switch from the editor that you're using to one that allows you better control of the HTML. Account > Preferences > Edit posts using > plain text/HTML If you were using the rich text editor it would have automatically put in those <P> tags no matter how many times you edit them out. Switching to another editor will give you the ...

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 ...

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 ...

At this time, you cannot get the "authorship" information of the Posts on a Group blog from Tumblr via the Theme Variables Edit: At the time I wrote this, I believed it was still correct. For a long time, this was not possible. Sometime in the last month or two (last time I read the Tumblr Theme Documents) this ability has been added to Tumblr. Yay! Using ...

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 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.

Yes and No. Can't contribute a theme without making it public but you can deploy custom CSS. Under the dashboard - advanced tab - enter custom CSS values to override everything. Their element identifiers are well defined and can be over-written easily.

Wrapping the comment script in {block:Date} {/block:Date} seems to work, although it is a bit of a nasty hack. This works because {block:Date} is only rendered for posts with a date, which don't exist on the ask, submit, and static pages.
