How to Make Your Tumblr Page Scroll Nonstop Until Your Posts End

by Naomi Bolton

Tumblr introduced endless dashboard scrolling on their site in 2009; the feature allows you to view all posts on a single scrolling page. Some Tumblr themes also support endless scrolling, which is activated from the customization page of the theme. If your Tumblr theme does not support this feature and you are unwilling to use a different theme you can add the code yourself. Adding the code yourself is only recommended if you are familiar with coding, as it can cause issues with themes that do not natively support endless scrolling.

Tumblr Dashboard Page

Sign in to your Tumblr account (link in Resources) and click the "Settings" button on your dashboard.

Select "Dashboard" from the right column to display options related to the appearance of your Tumblr dashboard.

Click the toggle button next to the Enable Endless Scrolling option to activate this feature. The change is automatically saved.

Click the "Dashboard" button to return to the dashboard page and then click "Posts" to view only your own posts.

Tumblr Blog Pages That Support Endless Scrolling

Sign in to your Tumblr account (link in Resources) and select your blog that you want to modify from the blog selection drop-down list.

Click "Customize" and then select "Browse themes" if your current theme does not support endless scrolling.

Select a theme that supports nonstop scrolling such as Optica, Observer, Alva or Clarus and click the "Use" button.

Click the toggle button next to "Endless Scroll" or "Infinite" scroll if this feature is disabled by default to activate nonstop scrolling.

Tumblr Blog Pages Without Endless Scrolling Support

Sign in to your Tumblr account (link in Resources) and click the name of your blog to display the blog selection list.

Select the blog that you want to modify and then click "Customize."

Add the following code at the bottom of the Description section:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://codysherman.tumblr.com/tools/infinite-scrolling/code"></script>

Click "Save" and then click "Exit." Check your Tumblr blog page to ensure that the nonstop scrolling is enabled.
