Then there is no question as to why Tumblr is so popular. It makes blogging super easy; it is filled with a community of like-minded people with who you can associate and enjoy your favorite content. Because of its popularity, there is so much on Tumblr that no one feels left out, and there is a bit of content for everyone, no matter what they like. However, it isn’t easy to manage them because of the sheer number of posts where Mass Post Editor comes into play.
So what is a Mass Post Editor, and how to use it?
Tumblr has a special section called the Mass Post Editor, where you are allowed to select and unselect multiple published posts to add or edit tags or delete said selected posts.
The Mass Post Editor is not easy to find immediately. You should open up your dashboard, and when you open up your account menu, under your primary blog, you should select the posts option. Once you click on the option, you should be able to see the Mass Post Editor option in a tiny print to the right side of the dashboard, and once you click that option, you will be redirected to The Mass Post Editor.
Once you click on it, all the posts will be laid out in the thumbnail format to locate the post is easier. It is also broken down by month to make it easier to locate whichever post you wish to select.
How to open a secondary account:
If you wish to open up the Mass Post Editor with your secondary account, there are two ways to do so. The first way is to open up the account menu on the screen’s top right side to click on the secondary blog. Then the option for the Mass Post Editor will be exactly as it was for the primary account.
The second method to open up the Mass Post Editor is to change the URL. First, you will need to open the Mass Post Editor’s new window on the primary blog. Stay on that screen and then go to the address bar on the top. Then you will need to replace the title of the primary blog with that of the secondary blog, and then you need to press enter. The page will then reload and show you all the posts belonging to the secondary blog page.
While it is possible for you to scroll down all the way to view your older posts, it is also possible to see them more easily. You have to go to the pull-down menu on the upper left corner of the page to load the posts starting from any month of the year. This is crucial to effective post-management.
Apart from the purely text-based posts, the thumbnail also makes it easier to identify other types of posts. If you are unsure which post you’re selecting, you can always double-click a thumbnail to load the post in a dedicated tab. However, the ability to maximize them directly within the editor itself would have been a better option and would have worked wonders.
On the upper right corner of the Mass Post Editor, many options are pretty self-explanatory. They will be marked, ‘Delete,’ ‘Edit Tags,’ ‘Add Tags’, and ‘Unselect.’
To select a bunch of posts simultaneously, you will have to click on them individually. Unfortunately, it is not possible to drag the cursor to select a bunch of posts simultaneously. There’s also a maximum of 100 posts that you can select simultaneously, and you cannot exceed that number.
Once you have clicked on the posts you want, you can click on delete to get rid of the posts. You will then have to confirm this action, and after that, they will be deleted.
Just like deleting them, there is an option where you can add or edit tags. This is pretty useful when it comes to re-categorizing old posts. Just like what you do when you delete posts, you will have to select them, only 100 at a time, and then click on the add tags option. You will then be given a box to enter your tags, once you have done so, you can confirm the option, and they will be added.
In the same way, you can remove the unwanted tags from the post. All you have to do is click the remove tag option and then check the tags you wish to delete, and then you will only need to confirm this action.
