So far the only way I’ve found to avoid this is to save the post as a draft rather than posting straight away, then go to my Tumblr dashboard to edit the post and untick Send to Twitter. The bookmarklet appears to ignore the Services setting whatever I do.
I’ve tried all the following, with no success:
In all cases—except while actually logged out of Twitter—posts get sent to Twitter. Is there any way to get the bookmarklet to respect the setting?
According to Tumblr support, the bookmarklet Advanced tab should include a checkbox for posting to Twitter, rather than appearing as it does above, so they’ve passed the bug on to their development team. Some further information if needed:
Since I updated to Opera 11.10, the checkbox now appears:
A final test. Having turned off “post to Twitter” in the previous post, I’m hoping that the Tumblr bookmarklet now follows that and doesn’t tweet it.
No such luck: the post still got tweeted.
Another test. This should get saved as a draft, then when I post it, nothing should go to Twitter.
This worked. I selected “save as draft” in the popup from the bookmarklet. “Post to Twitter” was however ticked in the draft, and had to be manually removed.
A test. This should NOT get tweeted, just saved to Tumblr.
Damn. It did get tweeted, despite that option being turned off under customize. (Post was created using the Tumblr bookmarklet.)
My Twitter favourites were all created in the past, so to preserve the dates I need to.
And the answer appears to be: yes I can, and they get sorted correctly for public display, but on the dashboard they appear in the order created.
Edit (April 8th 2011):
This post is getting a lot of views via Google, from people who’ve searched for things like “backdate posts tumblr”. So here’s how to do it:
When creating or editing the post, simply enter a post date which is in the past. The post then gets sorted on your Tumblr page as though it had been created then.
What I haven’t tested (yet; maybe I will) is whether there’s a limit to how far back the date can go.
