Yes, there is a quick and easy way. If your post has the following permalink http://account.tumblr.com/post/1239802 then your edit page is here: http://account.tumblr.com/edit/1239802 You just change "post" in the URL to "edit". Note that this does not work if you put something after the post ID (for instance: http://...../1239802/my-post).

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 ...

You need to go to your dashboard and visit the Followers page. That will show other users that are following your blog. From the Tumblr help page Following and Followers The Following page shows blogs that you are following. Posts from these blogs will appear in real-time on your Dashboard.

This is an intended feature. You're supposed to be able to see "hey, I want that tag too" and click it to add both. The same thing happens when you push tab. The functionality you really want is to push the down arrow key til you've selected the correct tag, then press enter.

Clicking the Reblog button next to any post will create a copy on your blog, and give you a chance to include your own comments. Reblogged posts automatically include attribution to the original poster....

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 ...

Wrapping the comment script in {block:Date} {/block:Date} seems to work, although it is a bit of a nasty hack. This works because {block:Date} is only rendered for posts with a date, which don't exist on the ask, submit, and static pages.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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

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&...

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 ...

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 ...
