I’ve used a Tumblr theme on a site which has been live for about 18 months and has a continuous scroll, but the other day I visited the site and the continuous scroll is no longer there. There is now a page by page pagination. I checked if this was a browser compatibility fall back thing—it wasn't.

Do updates to Tumblr themes update live sites once they've been published?

Any other thoughts why this might be?

I am the only one with access to the site so it’s not like any one changed it on my end.

Presumably Tumblr can update them, eg to make changes to allow them to work with newer browsers.

I don't know about Tumblr specifically, but Blogger certainly do make updates to the templates of live blogs, and I'd expect other tools to do similar.

  • Thanks, just a note though i dont think this is a tumblr theme, its a theme written by a 3rd party as a tumblr theme, rather than by the tumblr company (yahoo) them selves ..

  • That doesn't matter: Tumblr still need the theme to work within their software, so may need to modify it as they make changes. Commented Jun 9, 2014 at 11:32
