Tumblr photo posts
  • I was wondering if I am doing something wrong when using my Tumblr account to post pictures through MarsEdit. I know in a previous app I used allowed you to post up to 10 pictures at once like Tumblr does. When I use command and click multiple pictures MarsEdit only allows one picture. I apologize if this question has already been answered under another category but again I am still learning how to use MarsEdit.
  • Hi there - sorry to confirm the bad news that MarsEdit currently only supports one image for Photo posts. There has been a bit of a disconnect between Tumblr and MarsEdit with respect to how images are handled. Generally for other blogs MarsEdit expects to be able to upload multiple images as needed within the content of a post. For Tumblr that's not possible, and to make things worse MarsEdit's Tumblr support was added at a time when only one image could be added per "Photo" post. I'm hoping to update Tumblr support in MarsEdit in the future to support multiple photos, but I cant make any promises now about when that will happen.
  • Well, considering the popularity of Tumblr and the lack of proper client (the best one just vanished from the store) you could do something here. ;)

    Btw I don't see the video post format in my beta but maybe I'm lagging behind. :x Need to find the command for latest beta -_- (again).
  • Hi Cafeine - unfortunately the lack of video and audio support are another shortcoming of MarsEdit's Tumblr support. What happened is when I added support for Tumblr I wanted to get the basic "writing blog posts" functionality out there, and there were some hurdles at the time getting audio and video working, among other things.

    I think you're right there is room here to grow into being the "obvious" choice for Tumblr on the desktop. By the way I'm curious which app it was that suddenly disappeared from the store?
