musicsoundsmuchbetterwithyou asked: WELP! I googled something and it led me to a post you made about tumblr tips and faqs. Your post said to highlight long tags to either double click to the left or right of the tag and IT ISN'T WORKING AND LORD MY FURY AND MY FRUSTRATION! I can easily just go to the person's blog and highlight all of their tags but no matter where I click on the dash it utterly will not highlight their tags. I can highlight shorter tags but I have to drag these ones to see all of them so it won't highlight. Halp.

I wrote that post quite a few updates ago, so I’m not surprised it doesn’t work anymore. Sorry about that! At this point, I recommend you install XKit, which will allow you to see all tags at once on your dashboard (you can find the option to “Wrap tags for easier reading” under Tweaks). Then highlight the tags as you normally would, by clicking to the left and then dragging. (You also might be able to highlight them by clicking near them a bunch of times.) I hope that helps!

Anonymous asked: I'm trying to sign up for Tumblr but nothing's happening. I saw another complaint here about the same problem, and as usual, you tried to blame it on the person's browser. There's nothing wrong with my browser and I don't have any dashes in my name, which you suggested might be the other problem. I'm not even getting an error message. I tried over and over, and it's clear from your lack of response that you don't care. I give up. Tumblr isn't worth the hassle.

I am not affiliated with Tumblr in any way other than being a Tumblr user. I never claimed to be able to help anyone with anything beyond very basic things, like making a text post with a photo in it. I have never had the problem you are having, so I don’t know how to solve it. I’m sorry I can’t help. I suggest using Tumblr’s actual resources: 

Or, look up some other way to contact them. 

Since I have no idea what your problem is, the only things I can suggest are the things  I have already said, which are the things any person is going to say when you ask them for help troubleshooting: 

  • You say nothing’s happening. Did you check your email? Maybe the confirmation email is in your spam folder. 
  • Not there? Did you spell your email correctly?
  • Go to the URL you’re trying to sign up for. Is anything there? 
  • Maybe the name is already taken or has some unusual symbols in it. Try a different one. 
  • Okay, none of those things worked. Are you on your phone? Try going on a computer. 
  • On your computer? Quit and restart your browser and/or clear your cookies. 
  • Didn’t work? Try a different browser. 
  • Didn’t work? Restart your computer.

Anonymous asked: I got the tumblr app and I filled in the registration but it asks me for a age and if I accept the terms but if I accept and fill in my age it says " unknown error " please help ( I'm on my iPhone)

If you’re trying to register for a Tumblr account, I recommend doing it on a computer. From what I hear of the app, it’s pretty buggy, so that is probably your problem. If you mean that you’re trying to sign in, though, I don’t know what the problem is. Sorry!

Redirect your old tumblr links to your new tumblr

oddhour:

I just did this for myself, and a quick Google search told me that apparently no one knows how to do this properly :P so maybe this will help someone. It’s possible to redirect all your links from your old tumblr link to your new tumblr link (assuming you saved your old URL). This isn’t just redirecting to your new tumblr’s homepage.

This is like if you were linked to:
http://oddhouredproductivity.tumblr.com/tagged/tips

and the URL automatically changes to:
http://oddhour.tumblr.com/tagged/tips

(try it!) If you’ve ever tried to find a post off someone’s old url, you know how annoying it can be to track down the post in the new url.

How to use: Just add this script either before your end body tag (</body>) or in the head section (<head></head>) of the tumblr where you saved your old URL. Change oddhour.tumblr.com to whatever your new URL is.

 <script> //redirect to new blog var path = window.location.pathname; window.location.replace('http://oddhour.tumblr.com' + path); </script>

xkit-extension:

Introducing TagViewer (officially)
Based on the fantastic work of inklesspen, TagViewer allows you to view the tags people added to a post while they were reblogging it.
This version is written from the ground up to not use the Tumblr API, since XKit violates some of their API rules, such as extensions not allowed to have a gallery (which would render XKit, you know, useless.)
It also shows the avatars of the user, and provides links to posts and searching for a tag right from the results window (opens in new tabs).
You can get it now from the XKit Extension Gallery.
Since it is at version 0.1 Rev A, if you find any bugs, please let me know by sending me an ask. Thank you!

this is incredible now i dont have to go to everyones blog to see what they tagged my art with. im so glad. so glad.

One thing that has always bugged me is that you can&#8217;t get a &#8220;Read More&#8221; on, say, a photo post like this one. Since I can&#8217;t be bothered to find an extension that lets me do that, here&#8217;s another way. Once you create the post, click the &lt;html&gt; symbol and put [[ MORE ]] (without the spaces) wherever you want the &#8220;Read More&#8221; to be. (After a paragraph tag &lt;p&gt; is a good place.) 
Edit: Fair warning, it might not work on your blog, but it should work in other people&#8217;s dashes and in the Tumblr search interface. 
[[MORE]]See? :)

One thing that has always bugged me is that you can’t get a “Read More” on, say, a photo post like this one. Since I can’t be bothered to find an extension that lets me do that, here’s another way. Once you create the post, click the <html> symbol and put [[ MORE ]] (without the spaces) wherever you want the “Read More” to be. (After a paragraph tag <p> is a good place.) 

Edit: Fair warning, it might not work on your blog, but it should work in other people’s dashes and in the Tumblr search interface.

I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:
IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.
1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.
2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.
3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”
4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”
5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.
TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.
Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, either. Pass it on.


why on earth doesn’t this have more notes

I actually had to do this once. She lived.

if you scroll past this on your dash you are absolutely heartless.

Anonymous asked: hi. how do you insert a gif in a textpost with the new tumblr layout? it's from a link so not my own gif. thanks.

As far I know, you have to upload them from your own files now. Just open the link, save the image, and insert it that way. (Though apparently you can still use links to insert gifs in asks. Huh.)
