Once you've tagged your posts relevantly, you can use the tags to display and organize collections of posts.
On specific posts on your blog
Tags you've added to posts will display on your blog, if your blog theme supports them. You can find themes that display tags with each post at tumblr.com/themes. Even if a theme doesn’t show post tags, they will still appear in the dashboard and be searchable across Tumblr. Note that on password-protected blogs, you can add tags to keep your posts organized for yourself, but they won't be searchable on Tumblr.
On Tumblr-wide tag pages
A tag page is a dashboard-style view of all the posts that are tagged with a given tag. They’re a fine way to keep up with specific topics on Tumblr. The posts there appear in simple reverse-chronological order.
To get to a tag page, click the tag on your dashboard or add the tag name to the end of tumblr.com/tagged in your browser's address bar. So if you want to check out the #boba tag, you’d go to tumblr.com/tagged/boba. If you’re more of a #bubble tea person, visit tumblr.com/tagged/bubble-tea.
In the Tumblr mobile apps, tapping a tag from your dashboard will take you to the tagged page for that topic. In tagged pages on mobile, you’ll find the best and latest posts, reblogs, answer times, group chats, blogs and related tags. You can also tap “Follow” to follow a tag from this view.
On blog-specific tag pages
To link to the posts you’ve given a specific tag, just add /tagged/tag to your blog’s URL. For example:
These links will only show the 200 most recent posts with that tag in reverse chronological order (latest posts on top).
To display posts in chronological order (older posts on top), add /chrono to the end of the tag URL (i.e. http://staff.tumblr.com/tagged/features/chrono).
To create a page on your blog that links to all your posts with a specific tag:
- Click “Add a page” in the Pages section of your Customize menu.
- Select "Link" from the dropdown menu. (If you don’t see this option, don’t fret — to prevent spam, we unlock features over time for new accounts. Once you’ve used Tumblr for a while to follow blogs, like posts, and customize your blog, this feature will be unlocked for you.)
- In the “Link to” field, add the URL for the specific tagged posts you want to link to. Just add /tagged/mytag to the end of your blog URL, but replace "mytag" with the tag you want to use. For tags with multiple words, use an underscore, plus sign, or dash in between each word (i.e., /tagged/bubble_tea, /tagged/bubble+tea, /tagged/bubble-tea).
- Choose a name for your new page in the "Page title" field.
- Click “Save.”
