mobile-version

My browser is refusing to acknowledge this tumblr update. Everything looks the same.

I did see it on my phone’s mobile web version (not the app), though. Took me a minute to realize that’s what it was because I was scrolling by so fast and I thought I was just scrolling by a whole lot of lengthy twitter screenshots.

Oops.

its so strange that staff is working so hard to make the desktop version of website look similar to the extremely broken mobile version and it doesnt make sense, there are different layouts for different interfaces for a reason and its silly to try and make one look like the other

OH GOD I WAS ON AN OLD MOBILE VERSION OF TUMBLR THIS MORNING AND EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL

BUT THEN I LOGGED ONTO THE COMPUTER VERSION AND I CAN’T BELIEVE THE UPDATE IS REAL HOLY SHIT THIS LOOKS SO BAD

The look above is for the mobile version, the desktop view will have better spacing and will not take up as much space as they will have 540px to be creative with and not 300px as the screenshots show. Which means that posts ‘wont be longer’ by as much above.

I am all for this new look, it will increase conversations, puts more emphasis on the writer of the content of each reply (hello? more followers and people knowing who you are).

It looks cleaner, and won’t be as scary to see than the current version for new bloggers.

I have been on here over six years, you would expect me to be completely against this as I am used to the blockquote style, but honestly its time for an update. Posts with longer replies dont look right and its hard to read any of the posts and know whose talking where.

I have been reading response after response from people and they are all “its hideous” or “IM LEAVING TUMBLR” and this is exactly what people panicked about when they moved the reblog buttons to the bottom of the post (they used to be at the top, it was painful to reblog - you had to scroll for 10,000 years to reblog anything), there were people who hated the popup when you reblog on tumblr (it originally required you to open each reblog in a new tab or screen to reblog it and then it would send you back to the dashboard).

People hated infinite scroll on the dashboard, they hated it, that was the worst reaction on here I have ever seen, people actually preferred clicking “next” and “back” after every ten posts on their dashboard. There was even a popup on /page/500 of the dashboard that told us to go outside it was so bad.

People are going to complain, but this change has been tested and focus grouped, and has been proven to leads to increases in activity, conversations, creation of friendships, and it just looks nicer for 2015 (blockquotes is so 2010).

Part of me hates that this way of life is leaving, but tumblr has grown up and so have I.

How to download "Dead" Box links

It’s been discovered that dead/inactive box links can be downloaded on mobile android devices like tablets or phones. For whatever reason the “mobile” version isn’t blocking the downloads. However, this isn’t exactly convenient if you don’t have a mobile device or a lot of available storage on your device (plus having to transfer files, etc.)

So, I studied the difference between the desktop box link and the mobile version. It looks like this:

Desktop -
https://app.box.com/s/812b31c6a4a50760dc74

Mobile -
https://m.box.com/shared_item/https%3A%2F%2Fwww.box.com%2Fs%2F812b31c6a4a50760dc74

So, it seems if you can copy the group of numbers in bold in the desktop version and insert it into the base mobile link, it will take you to the mobile version of the website on your desktop browser, where you will be able to successfully download the file.

Therefore, copy the group of numbers from the desktop link and paste at the end of the following of the mobile link:

https://m.box.com/shared_item/https%3A%2F%2Fwww.box.com%2Fs%2F

Ok, I hope that works for everyone. I’ve tried it only a few times so far, but wanted to report it for further experimentation. Post your experiences.
