1. How do you reblog on Tumblr with keyboard?
If you have more than one blog, fast reblogging or fast queuing on the web (holding “e” to reblog or “w” to queue and clicking the reblog button) should now give you the option to choose which blog you’re posting to.
2. What does lightning mean in Tumblr?
When you view a blog that you’ve subscribed to, you’ll notice a small lightning bolt next to the person-shaped icon. To disable notifications, tap or click the person-shaped icon once more and select “Stop notifications.” If you unfollow a blog, you will no longer be subscribed and will no longer receive notifications.
3. How do you put an HTML post on Tumblr?
Simply click the settings gear in the upper-right corner of the post form to create and edit posts in HTML or Markdown. The menu that appears allows you to switch between HTML, Rich Text, and Markdown editing. You can also change the default text editor in the dashboard settings.
4. How do you get rid of likes on Tumblr?
There is no way to completely disable recommendations. Individual recommendations, on the other hand, can be made to vanish forever by clicking or tapping the post meatballs at the top of the recommendation. We will never recommend that post or blog to you again after you reject it.
5. Is Tumblr better than WordPress?
When it comes to Tumblr vs. WordPress, the general consensus is that Tumblr is ideal for casual bloggers looking for a solution that falls somewhere between Twitter and a full website. For those looking for a dependable, professional blog, WordPress.com is the best option.
