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 ...

The way Tumblr's search works is that it first brings up blogs that directly contain whatever your search input in their URL, and then by related titles. Since there are many blogs that can share the same titles and compete for a position in top five displayed blogs in the search results, it makes sense that a blog may not show up based on its title simply ...

This procedure has changed slightly since this was answered: In Tumblr Dashboard, click on the Account → Edit Appearance Click on Edit Theme button (same Customize) Scroll to the button and click Advanced Settings Uncheck Promote Tumblr!

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.

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 my-blog.tumblr.com/post/...

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 ...

If you want to remove redirect link for Image posts (to disable previewing images bigger) then search for this in your Tumblr HTML code: {LinkOpenTag}<img src="{PhotoURL-500}" alt="{Permalink}">{LinkCloseTag} And replace it with this: <img src="{PhotoURL-500}" alt="{Permalink}"> It worked perfectly fine for me!

FYI, I just discovered that if you type "Report a bug" into the search bar at the top of their help page, then the "Contact Support" button will appear at the bottom of the page.

To change your blog to a public blog go here: http://www.tumblr.com/blog/nameOfBlog/settings Scroll to Password section (near the bottom) Uncheck the box labeled: "Password protect this blog" Click "Save" Notes: I wasn't able to find this setting on my existing Tumblr blogs It may be that once you post something public you can't turn it back into private ...

Depending on what you want to do with it you have a couple of options. If you're wanting to copy it over to WordPress, you can use Tumblr2WordPress to give you a standard WordPress XML file. If you want the whole thing, posts & images, use this Tumblr Backup to give you a tarball including everything. A .TAR file is similar to a .ZIP file, and can be ...

Tumblr doesn't offer any statistics by default. However, you can edit your theme and add in a tracking service's code that will allow you to see how many people have visited your blog (this would also include your own visits). Google Analytics is the easiest way to get started and it's free. To get to your theme editor you'll need to go to http://www....

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. This is most likely not an error with your template. 'Not Found' almost always means a 404 error (source could not be found). Even though there is not a human readable error ...

What I am thinking of doing is liking everything I have on my blog, then if something on your dash is liked you know you have posted it already

It is possible by via the Tumblr API, as it does provide the ability to request the Text posts for a blog and return the results as JSON-encoded objects. You can then use code to sort these results alphabetically. Tumblr API Details - www.tumblr.com/docs/en/api/v2 Text Posts Response Field Type Description title String The optional title ...

I’m the author of the script linked in @oneqeightyfour’s answer. So although I’m a little late to the party, here’s a modified version of the script you can use. I did find a one-click site that claims to do this as well, but I couldn’t get that to work. You might want to try that first? Step 1: get a Tumblr API key Using the API is much simpler, from a ...

Here's a way. It involves opening the developer console of your browser. That is done usually by pressing ctrl+shift+I or just F12. After you've opened it and found the Console tab, type: var i = 0; (function scroll () { if (i > 50) { return } i++ window.scrollTo(0, 9999999) console.log('scrolled ' + i) setTimeout(scroll, 900) })() Then ...

Mehper's answer no longer works, as Kirk Woll mentions. As of Feb 2015, you need the following URL to edit: https://www.tumblr.com/edit/<post_id>?redirect_to=%2Fblog%2F<blog_name> Replacing < post_id> with your post ID # (example: 406783219) and replacing < blog_name> with the domain of your blog, without the tumblr.com part (example: ...

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's ALWAYS the main blog only. The same reason you can't separate the likes linked to main and secondary blogs. When in doubt, always start a separate account (as irritating as it may be).

My theme was a little different, but I figured that all you need to do is search for (Cmnd/Cntrl F) these : {LinkOpenTag} and {LinkCloseTag} and remove them.

Problems with Tumblr are best submitted via the "Contact Support" link at the bottom of their help page. There is also an old Get Satisfaction page, but this doesn't appear to get much use any more.

Since you have to use an email address to sign up you can use Tumblr's Forgot Password form to go through resetting the password.

I can't quite tell from your question whether you're looking to do this retroactively or not, but but one easy solution for this going forward is to use a service such as IFTTT (stands for If This Then That). You can add both facebook and tumblr as 'channels' and then use a recipe such as this one: FB Image to Tumblr Photo Post IFTTT is completely free, and ...

Contacting Tumblr is your best bet for tracking someone down. That being said, it seems that the general consensus from sources on children's internet safety is that Tumblr is not for children and that there is little that can be done to make it more kid-friendly (it's not as easy to restrict access as, say, Instagram). The ability to message a user ...

It appears that in the past this was possible but with a very recent change made it no longer work. This DailyDot article explained how one could previously accomplish this: 8) Filter your dash by type by using "/show/[mediatype]". Appending “/show/text” to tumblr.com will let you see only the text posts on your dash. This also works for photos, ...

Enable HTML input mode: https://www.tumblr.com/settings → "Edit posts using": plain text/HTML (Using other input methods (rich text editor, Markdown) may work too, but I don’t know/use them.) Then use the HTML img element, e.g. in a text post: <img src="http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/02/SVG_logo.svg" alt="SVG" /> The value of the ...

Someone on the internet wrote a script for this and you can find it on Github. You would've to change the parameters of hostname and API key to your own tumblr hostname and add your own API key respectively. Your hostname would be something like "x.tumblr.com", (be sure to wrap it with "" marks). You will then need to get an API key from Tumblr. To do ...

Transferring a primary Tumblr blog to another primary blog is not possible (though you can transfer a secondary blog to a new primary owner). I just received this message from a Tumblr support representative: Unfortunately, we can’t switch blogs from secondary to primary (or vice versa), nor can we merge accounts, move blogs between accounts, or move posts ...
