How to Create Hidden Message In A Tumblr Post!

Sometimes, full lines of text is hidden behind a black thick line,

Save and close.

How to Get the Permalink or Direct Link of Tumblr Posts on Your Dashboard!

Simply hover your cursor over the post and click on the folded right corner!



How to Create and Track Tumblr Keyword Tags!

What is a Tumblr tag?
Tumblr tags are used to track the keywords that you have posted.
For example, if you add a 'Harry Potter' tag, you can simply click the tag "Harry Potter"
and it will show all the content that is tagged as "Harry Potter"!

Step 1: Add the following URL into your browser: http://www.tumblr.com/track_tag/keyword
Replace the word "keyword" with the tag you would like to track.
(If your tag contains more than one word, use the "+" sign to separate the two keywords.)
Example: Harry+Potter

Once you have the URL set to your tag, click enter on your browser and it should bring up
a blank page

Step 2: Go to your tumblr dashboard (http://www.tumblr.com/dashboard) and you will see
the "Tracked Tags" in your sidebar!

Now you can simply click on that tag and it will bring you to the posts
that are tagged with that specific keyword.

How to Gain More Followers!

1. "Like" or Reblog the posts on your dashboard

When other users noticed that you liked or reblogged their post,
they will likely check out your blog. If you have something they like,
they will most likely follow you!

2. Replying to posts

If the post allows you to comment or reply to it, do it!
Interaction and connecting with your followers is key for a fun Tumblr experience!

3. Make Your Tumblr Blog worth following

Limit yourself to a number of fields and concentrate on those subjects.
For example, if you're posting fashion-related images, be consistent and
try not to stray from it. Other users who like fashion-related stuff will
start following soon. However, if your decide to cover a wide variety of content
such as typography, insane gifs, motivational quotes, etc, you might find it difficult
to consistently gain followers. In other words, keep your posts under a single umbrella!
It is also important to adopt a daily posting frequency!
Lastly, avoid posting stuff which are too personal unless you're intend to keep
your tumblr blog as a form of private diary or something personal :)

Lastly, I strongly advise against the "I Follow You Follow" scheme or the
typical "Follow-trains" because it is annoying and it really ruins the website.

How to make other people Unfollow you on Tumblr?

You can't do that. It is just not possible. However, you may block them.

How To Unblock Someone on Tumblr?

Step 1: Go to Tumblr's Block Page and
look at the list.

Step 2: If the user you want to unblock is on the list, just click on the unblock button.

Step 3: If the user doesn’t show up, enter its url or username on the form and
click on block, the user should now reappear on the blocked users list, just repeat step 2.

How to Disable Tumblr Reblog Feature?

You can't do that. It is just not possible. Maybe Tumblr isn't for you.
