If you’re browsing on one of our partner sites like Etsy or Kickstarter and you see something you simply MUST pressure all of your friends into buying / supporting immediately, click the share button on that site and share it as a post on Tumblr. It'll make one of those clever “Buy” buttons show up on your post:
You can also share the item via the Tumblr bookmarklet to make that button appear—or if you’re comfortable with a certain level of geekery, you can manually add the listing’s URL as the content source of the post (that option is hidden in the gear icon at the top-right corner of the post form).
Other ways you can make the button appear:
- Make a link post that points to the URL in question.
- Add the URL to a photo’s clickthrough link in a photo post.
- Share the page using the Tumblr bookmarklet.
- Add the URL as the content source in any post type. (This one is a little geeky—the content source field is hidden in the gear icon at the top-right corner of the post form.)
