You’ve probably noticed that over the past few weeks, we’ve been rolling out a brand new web interface for Tumblr. Starting today, that new experience is being served to everyone who visits Tumblr on the web.
We’ve undertaken this major update in order to modernize Tumblr’s web presence, ensuring it’ll be faster, smoother, and just plain easier to develop new features for in the future.
Along the way, we’ve added some new stuff too:
- Dark mode is now available on the web! Along with a few other color schemes, too. Just click the silhouette figure in the upper right corner and then click “Change Palette” to cycle through all of ‘em. Read more about color scheme settings here.
- View your likes page as the default view or in the new grid view. The same is true with any tagged pages.
- Copying the link to a post, reporting a post, or blocking someone whose content you don’t enjoy is easier than ever. Just click the meatballs menu (●●●) in the upper right corner.
- Asks are now located in the meatballs menu as well.
Also, we're working on adding the option to turn off endless scrolling. Stay tuned!
Lastly, this kind of web overhaul means that some of your Tumblr browser extensions may not work. We understand how important these extensions are to those of you who want to customize your Tumblr experience as much as possible. In particular, we’ve been staying in close communication with the people who build XKit, to make sure this is just a bump in the road.
While XKit isn’t an official Tumblr tool, it’s one we know is dear to many members of the community, and we don’t take that lightly. If you have any concerns, we encourage you to read more about what they have to say over here. Be sure to follow them to stay updated on their process!
