tfw there’s nowhere to go on the internet
Sick of Tumblr blocking your posts in search because they have external links to your portfolio, patreon, twitter or whatever? Yeah me too.
But there’s a way around it!
FIRST > Edit / customise your theme (the desktop version, aka the actual HTML and CSS junk) Find this button:
Add your page like you would for other pages! Except on the drop down select “Redirect”!
The insert on the right is what will appear on the preview side on the right. Here I’ve put in my twitter! Fill it out and give the page URL something lowercase and easy to remember (like /twitter)
Post your stuff how you would normally. Unfortunately using the bottom left ‘source url’ button on the image as usual itself still gets censored (seriously fuck you Tumblr what the fuck).
Link your sites as you would normally EXCEPT we use the tumblr link (for me it’s the above!). If you use a domain name, you WILL need to use your tumblr URL rather than yourname.com/redirect ! This will link people to my twitter but still show up in /tagged/ and /search/
Your stuff will now should show up! This doesn’t seem to work for editing older posts but I haven’t tested that out fully.
Fuck you tumblr
LYCI FOUND A WORKAROUND TO THE PROBLEM!!!!! spread this to raise awareness on how tumblr users can keep using the tag/search engine to their advantage.
does anyone else go out of their way to reblog from the source of a post to cover up the fact that you’re creeping on someone’s blog
So, tumblr’s 10 year old today. instead of doin the usual routine and jokin about what an apocalyptic sci-fi hellscape it is and roast its management, I just wanna say; I appreciate this weird old place. I’ve had some great times here. some bad times, and some legitimately surreal times too. But I can sincerely say I don’t think I’d be the same person or met as many wonderful people if I’d never signed up for this weird, weird, weird, absolute nightmare of a blogging site. I… love you tumblr, somehow, and if I can’t say it today then I never will. Thanks tumbl. Please fix your site
