Changing to ‘Reblog Text post’ for mobile layout ( Browser app )
[ i cant screencap stuff in my phone im so sorry]
First, in your browser, you’ll see the default mobile layout there for tumblr. Not the standard layout, but the mobile layout, where there is a ’ [|↓| Dashboard]’ in the upper left corner of your screen.
If you want to do it the easy way and make it look similar to your tumblr experience on computer, scroll down to the bottom of your dash and look for the 'Standard layout' link in the lower right corner, just beside ‘Logout’. Then reblogging things, or roleplaying, would be easier for you, because it’s very similar to desktop, except that you have to deal with html codes if you’re going to post something. ( The Opera app can take off the html thing in their settings though. ) But it will eventually get laggy if you stay in that layout for long, in my experience.
If you want your phone to be less laggy, you might prefer the mobile layout. Once you reblogged something, the bar in the upper right corner of your screen, will sometimes show as 'Link' instead of ‘Text’. But what if you wanted to reblog the it as a text post? This is where you go click the 'Standard Layout' in the lower left.
Now the page will show a desktop’s layout. You’ll see something like this: [
again, sorry for no pictures ; u; im doing the best i can with words tho ]
|| Reblog Link [as….]
Click ’ [as…] ’ (←) and options will show up:
Reblog Link [as text post] [as a quote]
|| Reblog Link [as text post](←) [as a quote]
Click that and you will be redirected to a page where you can see this:
|| Reblog Text post
Now you’re good to go for the most part
Word of advice
Sometimes it’s also hard to edit a text post on standard layout, for some phones. So just in case, I recommend you to save it as a draft for now. After you do so, type this link in your search bar.
' http://www.tumblr.com/enable_mobile_layout ’ or ’ tumblr.com/enable_mobile_layout’ will do just fine.
Once you’re back to mobile layout, time to check your drafts, press the edit icon, and this time, it’s no longer going to be reblogged as a ‘Link’ post, but as ‘Text’ post. You can check that by looking at bar at the upper right—— [|↓| Text]
It gets a little complicated, especially if there are a lot of replies in the said post, or paragraphs. But all you have to do first, is to look for the second to the last ‘[/blockquote] ’ at the bottom of the post. (ill have the tags in a different bracket, or else it won’t show up. just kindly replace ‘[ ]’, with ”) That’s the border above the last reply.
Anyway, once you find it, highlight that point ( ‘[/blockquote]' ), up to the html tag NEXT to the very first ‘[blockquote]’, which is ‘[p]’. Delete everything in highlight. So now you will only have the last reply, and the tag were you place your reply.
For the most part, you can’t upload pictures/icons in a TEXT post. So if you want to add the picture you wanted in html, type this:
[p][img src=”(image url goes here)” /][/p]
( Never forget that there’s a necessary space between ” and /] )
It’s useful to have a post like this first, because that’s where you’ll get the image url you needed.
To get the url, first, pick an image, press on it for a long time, and options will show up in a floating window.
Choose the option where it says to view the image. Once you’re redirected to the image’s page, copy the url in the top bar, and paste it in the image url.
[p][img src=”(paste the image url here)” /][/p]
