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!

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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.

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 ...

Look up the XKit extension pack. I don't think it automatically includes the follower checker when you install it, but you can add it with ease. It tells you both whom you follow that doesn't follow you back and anyone who unfollows you after you install it. EDIT: here's the Chrome extension.

The {Host} variable returns the host name of the tumblr blog. For example, if the URL is http://foo.tumblr.com, {Host} will return foo.tumblr.com. Similarly, using {Host} for custom domains, i.e. http://www.my-tumblr-blog.com will return www.my-tumblr-blog.com. You can use the following code for generating links: <h1><a href="http://{Host}">{...

It is possible to view a Tumblr account without logging in, all you need is the username/url (which you don't have). There isn't a search option to search by user other than a Google Search site:tumblr.com "query of words associated with your client's blog" For Instagram see: I don't have an Instagram account. Can I still look at users' Instagram ...

Depends on your Tumblr theme. You'll need to go in your photo block and change/remove the url to {Permalink}

No. You can always hit the heart at the top of the page or (on dashboard) the post regardless of whetehr or not you're following. Same for reblogging. IIRC, commenting is the only thing you can't do.

The reason that Tumblr is a bad place for advertising is that the majority of people are reblogging/liking/viewing from their dashboards. It's only that rare visit from someone new that will give you a view. Wordpress.com is also a bad place because their TOS does not allow you to place your own ads (since it's free). They'll place ads on your site if your ...

Tumblr does allow animated gifs to be uploaded, but does place some restrictions on them. From Tumblr's Posting Guidelines Since resizing animated GIFs is computationally intensive, large files (greater than 512K or wider than 500 pixels) may lose their animation if the upload server runs out of memory. Please avoid uploading unreasonably large animated ...
