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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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: ...

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.

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.

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}">{...

Answered my own question: Within the block for each post type (for example {block:Quote}), add at the end: {block:PermalinkPage} {block:HasTags} {block:Tags} <a href="{TagURL}">{Tag}</a> {/block:Tags} {/block:HasTags} {/block:PermalinkPage} {/block:Quote} Do not add before {/block:Posts}, as when adding tags to the main page.

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 ...

It depends on your theme, but you're probably gonna have to find the name of the div that contains the post info, and then add some CSS to hide that div by default and show it on hover. For example, this is the CSS I added to my theme (right before {CustomCSS} in the theme code): body.index .post .meta { opacity: 0; height: 0; } body.index .post:...

Every tag has two URLs that only show the posts on a specific Tumblr. Let’s say the Tumblr is called example and the tag is foo: http://example.tumblr.com/tagged/foo (newest first) http://example.tumblr.com/tagged/foo/chrono (oldest first) You could also search for the occurence of a string (which includes tags): http://example.tumblr.com/search/foo

This probably happens because <cite> is a custom HTML tag, while <sup> is a tag that was recognized by Tumblr. And Tumblr probably filters out all HTML tags it doesn't know, for security reasons. So whenever you switch view, Tumblr starts filtering out these parts of your text. I would suggest you use <span class='cite'>CITATION</span&...

You need to switch the default text editor being used to adjust the HTML code from Rich Text to Plain Text/HTML in Account → Preferences → Text-editor. The rich text editor apparently changes some of the tags such as <embed>, <table> etc to <p> tags automatically. The plain text editor comes with HTML editing enabled by default.
