Adding Posts to the Queue in Tumblr


Among the several publishing options in Tumblr, one of them is called “add to queue”.  It basically allows you to keep your post frequency consistent over a period of time keeping your own tumblelog alive while your away, meaning is automatic (but notice this is different from tumblr publish on feature).  One of the advantages of this option is that if you are really busy during the week (or during the day) to enter your Tumblr account and post at a particular time you can just pile up several posts  or just enter daily at any time given time creating one post for the queue and then you are gone.  The important thing here is that you make sure you never run out of queued posts!.

The important thing here is that you make sure you configure one (or both) of the options in the Tumblr queue. And even though there’s the usual complaint tumblr queue is not working, or not posting, or doing it at the wrong time, it’s simply something not related to your account, but only to Tumblr’s own fault, it’s not like adding a scroll to top button to tumblr.



Tumblr Queue FAQs

  • Automatically Publish one queued post every….(from 15 minutes to 24 hours)
  • Only publish queued posts between…(choose the time of the day)


How to Use Tumblr Queue

  1. In any of the post types choose “Add To Queue” in the dropdown menu at the top right of your post creation screen




  2. Then scroll down and just click on “Queue Post”. Now your post has been included in the queue




  3. If you want to take a look at your queue, being for editing reasons or to modify the settings go to your Dashboard and on the right sidebar you will find the option “Queue




  4. It’s on this screen (Tumblr Queue) that you can and must configure the two option to manage to queued posts, time of the day to publish and the post frequency. The time of the day option has priority on the first one.

    This misses the final step: how do you get the URL of a Queued Post, so you can link to it when it appears?

    This is a real problem, because if you can’t get the URL in advance, you still have to keep returning to your tumblr site, as each post is published, so you can copy-and-paste its URL into all the places that it needs to go, e.g. your Website.

    I’m investigating this now. Click this post’s Website URL to see whether I succeeded!
