• Everything Okay?

    If you or someone you know is suffering from an eating disorder, self harm, or suicidal thoughts, please visit our Counseling & Prevention Resources page for a list of services that may be able to help.

  • We here at Tumblr work hard to ensure you can use your account across a wide range of devices and older systems, but at some point we have to throw our bodies upon the gears and say stop. 

    Specifically, Internet Explorer on Windows XP no longer provides adequate security measures to protect your sensitive online information from being compromised. Consequently, Tumblr will be soon be ceasing support of IE on Windows XP.

    So, if you’re using XP, you’re going to need a different browser. Chrome or Firefox would be our suggestions, personally.

    If you’re absolutely committed to IE, then you’ll have to upgrade to a newer version of Windows.

    We know it’s a tiny bit of a pain to switch, but your security is paramount.

  • 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.
