We know that the option to add posts to the queue in Tumblr is quite useful, but we can certainly get one more functionality from it. Lets say we created a series of posts but we really don’t want to put an exact date on them and we don’t want to get them published yet either (why don’t creating a draft then you might think), just put the Tumblr queued posts on hold or Stand-By mode.
Though this requires you to enter your Tumblr before the time of the day you configured to get your queued posts published is still a good Tumblr tip in case you changed your mind and don’t want to edit post by post turning them into drafts or putting a date on them one by one.
How To Set Your Tumblr Queued Post in “Stand-By” mode
- Go to your Tumblr Queue.
- You should have selected the “Only Publish Queued posts between” option, giving it only a 1 hour gap or so to reduce the chance of the posts of getting published.
- Now, lets suppose you chose your queued posts to get published between 6p.m and 7p.m. And you are editing your Tumblr account at 5p.m. , well now everything you have to do is to reconfigure the option “Only Publish Queued posts between” and SET THE TIME BEFORE YOUR TUMBLR TIME OR LATER IN THE DAY (if you choose to do the first one its better since you have almost 24 hours to put your queued posts on hold), that would be in the example at 4p.m.
NOTE: I will explain in a different post how to find out the exact time in your Tumblr and which Time Zone actually has.
