Make sure you've got Tumblr set to format your posts with Markdown here. Then, the syntax is: That's some text with a footnote.[^1] [^1]: And that's the footnote. As noted here.

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 of ...

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. If you want to add some text you can use the caption. 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 bottom ...

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 ...

Go to http://www.tumblr.com/customize (you can get there by clicking the cog wheel in the backend and then Customize your blog). Click Themes in the upper left, then search and click on Optica, which is the default theme. Click on Use to take the theme.

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.

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 ...

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 href="{TagURL}">{Tag}...

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 ...

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!

It's managed in Disqus settings, not on Tumblr. Log into your Disqus account Go to the account that needs the change (the first page when logged in is the dashboard) Click on Settings (the right-most tab) Click on Appearance Scroll down to the Comment Count Link group of settings (almost at the end of the page) There you'll see three editable text fields ...

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

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 ...

Here's the official response from Tumblr support: Beth, Nov-16 13:33 (EST): Hello, If you are using a substantial number of tags on your posts, you may find that Tumblr doesn't show all of them in saved tags lists. The list may be shortened in order to ensure the pages where you create and edit posts load quickly. You can still use as ...

Try some CSS trickery (to get it to work in IE 8, you need to specify a <!DOCTYPE> at the top of the document). <p class="permalink"> <a href="{Permalink}">{NoteCountWithLabel}</a> {block:HasTags} &nbsp;&nbsp; # filed under: {block:Tags} <a class="tag" href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a&...

Turns out {PostAuthorName} is used to accomplish this. http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/custom_themes#group-posts

I've got another idea. {block:Tags}<a class="tag" href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a><span class="tagtail"></span>{/block:Tags} This will add a span with the "tagtail" class after every tag. Then, add this css: span.tagtail + a.tag:before { content:", "; } This will select every tag anchor that comes after a tagtail span (so every one ...

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. 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 ...

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....

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 ...

Following on from @Jeremy's answer... To support IE8 (and IE7) you will need to use the first-child pseudo-class, rather than last-child. IE8 does not support last-child, even in standards compliant mode (ie. with a DOCTYPE). a.tag:before { content:", "; /* comma + space */ } a.tag:first-child:before { content:""; } EDIT: However, a slight caveat ...
