Tumblr post limits


All free services have boundaries, and Tumblr Post limits are no exception. If you are one of those rare few that love to spam your followers with quotes and pics of yourself, this may be interesting. The maximum amount of posts per day that Tumblr lets you create is 100 (the equivalent for photo posts is 75).

This limitation also takes into account the feed imports, counting them as regular posts.

There are some methods though, to bypass tumblr ask limits.

The post threshold seems to have been removed according to many users that sent us mails and comments.

What Is Tumblr Daily Post Limit

250 daily Posts (includes reblogs).

Is There Anyway To Bypass Tumblr Post Limit?

The posting limit always resets at a certain time of the day, we don’t know the exact time, but if you thought that you could somehow keep posting non-stop, you were wrong.


If you insert a tumblr scroll to top button, you can let your tumblr visitors quickly navigate through your blog, specially if you have endless scrolling enabled.

    I hate the post limit. Tumblr is where I go to post more of my feeling and stuff that makes me happy. I’m not spamming my followers. I didn’t ask them to follow. People actually unfollow you when you don’t post. They like when you keep up. If you want a post limit, don’t make it 100. At least make it more. 100 is actually such a low number. It goes fast when people find interesting things to reblog. Maybe 500 or something. I know so many people who Tumblr is there life, because their home life is horrible. It’s where they feel comfortable. Taking that away from them, they get locked out of the few things at makes them happy.

    Right, so i kinda understand why there are post limits :/ still seems like a really crap reason, but anyway:L if there is no way on earth they can raise the post limit, they should at least have a warning sign come up when you are getting close to your limit! I mean come on, happily reblogging pictures, i have a few i want to reblog and BAM post limit. So i think we should have a warning..

    I understand the idea of placing a limit so spammers don’t ruin the network and all, but I can’t even save drafts to post later or reply to a message someone has sent me (even if I try to respond privately). It’s quite annoying! Couldn’t they just implement a CAPTCHA system if you’ve been “posting excessively” or something? At the very least I would like to be able to save my drafts…

    If its to minimise spamming – it doesnt help whatsoever…- i can still spam being under my limit
    Or others can still spam my dashboard too.
    I feel paranoid about how much i post now incase i reach the limit!
    I’m on tumblr all day tbh.

    If you have the Tumblr Mobile app, you dont have a post limit. I reached my post limit on my laptop and decided to see if it applied to my phone’s Tumblr app but it didn’t, I could keep posting. I even went back to my laptop to double check that the limit hadn’t reset but it still wouldn’t let me post.

    Can anyone help, I got the message ‘exceeded daily post limit’ two days ago, so I left tumblr for a while and I went back on today and it still says I’ve exceeded daily post limit? I can’t blog at all and I haven’t blogged for two whole days so what’s wrong!?

    Tumblr is genuinely some kids lives, its a place to get away from the real world and be happy. I hit post limit at like, 1pm. Even if they changed it so that it is like ask limit; you still get your x amount of posts, but then you have to wait an hour. Tumblr is my life, give it back to me please. =_=’

    tumblr really needs to remove this darn post limit. why not just terminate the spammer’s blogs? its extremely unfair to the rest of us tumblr users who use this website as a last resort, a means of expressing themselves, an escape from reality, etc. we should have some freedom here.. tumblr is the only place I can vent to and feel good while doing so. its my life in pictures. some of us really need this.
