Create a Link Post on Tumblr on iPhone 6
Edited by Freya, Robert, Eng
Hi, welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to teach you how to create a link post using the Tumblr application on the iPhone 6.
To begin, press the lock button on the right-hand side of the phone.
Alternatively, we can unlock our phone by pressing the home button at the bottom of the screen.
Swipe to the right to enter your passcode. As an alternative to entering your passcode, put your finger on the home button to use the fingerprint scanner.
Find the Tumblr icon, which is blue with a white "T" inside of it, and tap it once to open the application. It will automatically take us to our news feed, which is kind of like the place where we will see different posts by the people we follow. It is indicated by the house icon located in the bottom-left corner of the screen.
Tap on the pencil icon located in a lighter blue rectangle at the bottom of the screen.
Since we're posting a link, we'll tap on "Link" which is indicated by a green icon. This will change the format of the post for us to enter a link.
Tap on the blank space that says "Type or paste a URL", which is the second option.
Type in or paste a URL. As we can see, it is finding our title and we can add a description as well. It should automatically take information from the link for us. We can type in whichever information we'd like to.
Tap on the tag symbol located underneath the message body to add tags to the post.
Type in a tag. As we are typing, it will load the tags automatically for us to tap on. We can choose from a selection of popular tags, for example, if we type in "Home", it will display tags like home decor or homemade. In this example, we'll tap on "#home".
Tap on the gear icon in the top-right corner of the window to change the settings.
Tap on any option that we prefer. The check mark on the right side will indicate what option is selected. We can change from publishing immediately, which is the default option, to something else like "Add to queue", "Save as draft", "Post privately", or "Schedule".
Tap on "Post" in the top-right corner of the screen when we're finished and ready to post the link. This will post our link for us.
Now you know how to create a link post using the Tumblr application on the iPhone 6. If you have any questions, comments, or queries, feel free to add them into the section below and we'll do our best to get back to you.
