If your Tumblr timeline includes a post that you want to revisit, you can create a bookmark for the post's permalink in your browser so you won’t need to scroll through each page of your timeline to locate the post in the future. You can also enable the Endless Scrolling feature in your dashboard settings to display your Tumblr timeline in one long auto-scrolling page. Endless scrolling gets rid of the Next Page and Previous Page links at the bottom of each page.

Bookmark a Post's Permalink

Open Tumblr and log in to your dashboard.

Locate the post in your timeline to bookmark, then hover over the upper right corner of the post. The View Post permalink appears.

Right-click the “View Post” permalink to open the browser context menu. Click “Bookmark This Page” in Firefox or “Add to Favorites” in Internet Explorer. A bookmark of the post is saved in your Bookmarks or Favorites list. You can also open the post in the browser, then click the “Star” icon to add the post to your IE Favorites list.

Click the bookmark or favorite entry for the post to open and view the post in a browser.

Enable Endless Scrolling

Open Tumblr and log in to your dashboard.

Click the gear icon in the top menu to open the Account Settings page.

Click the “Dashboard” link in the left menu panel to open the Dashboard Preferences menu.

Click the check box next to the “Enable Endless Scrolling” option, then click “Save” to save the preferences.

Click the “Home” icon on the top toolbar to return to your timeline. Scroll to the bottom of the page to test endless scrolling. As you approach the bottom of the page, additional posts load in the browser.


To view the post before you bookmark it, right-click the “View Post” link, then click “Open Link in New Tab” or “Open Link in New Window” in Firefox. Click “Open in New Tab” or “Open in New Window” in Internet Explorer.


You can also bookmark a specific page of your timeline by bookmarking the “Next Page” link from the page that displays just before the page in question. However, note that each time you refresh your timeline, additional posts are published at the top of your timeline, changing the page structure. The posts you expect to see when you open the bookmarked page will have been moved to subsequent pages.
