• Hey! Need a link to a specific post?

    Permalinks are permanent links (URLs) to individual posts. You can access a post’s permalink in the Dashboard, as well as on most public blogs.

    From the Dashboard:

    • Hover your mouse over the upper-right corner of any post on the Dashboard.
    • Click the dog ear that appears, or keep hovering to view what time the post was published.

    or:

    • Click the Share icon on the bottom of any post.
    • Click the permalink button that appears. It will open to the post page.

    From a public blog:

    If you are on a public blog, keep in mind that each theme will have its own way of connecting you to a post’s permalink. Look for the icons and links surrounding a post — generally a permalink can be accessed by clicking on a post’s date and time, the link to its notes, or a similar symbol for a hyperlink.

    For instance, hovering over the post time or its notes shows that those both link to the post at:

Love the new search but wish it looked more like your dashboard? Well, we put a toggle on the results page that does exactly that. Go ahead, try it out. Neat, yes?
“Yes,” you whisper.
Great! Glad you like it.

    Search!!!!

    Everyone, we’re delighted to show off a feature that we’ve been hard at work on for the last few months and badly addicted to for the last few weeks.

    The new Tumblr Search has been rebuilt, front to back, to help explore all of your 65 billion(!) posts.

    Here are a few of the big additions to check out:

    • You can now use multiple #tags in a single query to find all that #hello kitty #nail art.
    • Searching for “government shutdown” now returns posts tagged #government shutdown or that mention ”government shutdown”. Searching “#government shutdown” will limit the results to posts with that #tag.
    • You’ll now see related blogs in your search results.
    • Use the new Filter menu to filter by post type!

    And in an effort to make the explicit content filter more transparent (and less confusing), we’ve moved the option right to the search results page. We’ve also been able to use this smarter filtering to unblock innocuous keywords in our apps that used to be prohibited by app store policies. #reaction gif #happy!

    Please take the new search for a spin! (And let us know if you catch it acting up.)

  • The service disruption that affected certain Tumblr users has been resolved. Thanks for your patience!

  • Important Tumblr security update for iPhone/iPad users

    staff:

    We have just released a very important security update for our iPhone and iPad apps addressing an issue that allowed passwords to be compromised in certain circumstances¹. Please download the update now.

    If you’ve been using these apps, you should also update your password on Tumblr and anywhere else you may have been using the same password. It’s also good practice to use different passwords across different services by using an app like 1Password or LastPass.

    Please know that we take your security very seriously and are tremendously sorry for this lapse and inconvenience.

    The Tumblr RVA office had an excellent night at The Roosevelt last night with our guest of honor, Marc LaFountain! We took over the bar for the unveiling of their new small plates and many a cocktail and beer, which were picturesque and ideal for Elixr.

    T gave us a lesson on crafting the perfect daiquiri (not the slushy kind, the classic, no-flip-flop-wearing-or-crazy-straw-drinking kind!):

    Combine in a shaker:

    • 2.5 oz. light rum (or a blend, like 2 oz. light and 1/2 oz. aged)
    • 3/4 oz. fresh lime juice (very fresh - The Roosevelt juices enough for each shift)
    • 3/4 oz. simple syrup, diluted agave/honey (1-to-1 ratio to dissolve) or other sweetener

    Fill completely with ice (too little ice will actually dilute the cocktail rather than cooling it) and shake just enough for the shaker to get frosty. 

    Pour through two strainers (yes, it’s so much better- no tiny ice shards in your drink that melt and dilute) and enjoy!

    As always, we had a great time with one another, The Roosevelt staff, as well as Karri Peifer, Richmond.com food writer, who was on the scene for her latest article

    Thanks for a lovely happy hour that we stretched well into the evening!
