General

Is Missing e affiliated with or endorsed by Tumblr?

No. The Missing e browser extension is not affiliated with Tumblr in any way. Its features are intended to improve the ease of use of tumblr.com, but it is neither approved nor endorsed by Tumblr.

As an unofficial extension for Tumblr, Missing e is happy to do what it can to enhance your enjoyment of the Tumblr microblogging experience.

By downloading and using this extension, you agree to the terms and conditions of the Missinge End User License Agreement.

I just got the message "Safari can't use the extension "Missing e" because the extension is no longer valid". What should I do?

Recently, a minor bug was introduced into the Safari version of Missing e that caused earlier versions to report themselves as being invalid.

To fix this, all you have to do is reinstall Missing e on Safari. Your Missing e bookmarks will be preserved, but you will have to customize your Missing e settings again, including activating optional features like Quick (1-Click) Reblog.

Reinstall Missing e

Is Missing e open source? Where can I get a copy of the source code?

Missing e is an open source project released under the GNU General Public License, version 3. This means that you can obtain a copy of the source code, modify it and distribute your own version (as long as you also release under the GNU General Public License, version 3 or higher).

Browse or get a copy of Missing e's source code at GitHub.

Missing e has completely stopped working on my Tumblr. How do I fix it?

A small number of users find that browser extensions can stop working without warning. In order to fix this, it is not necessary to uninstall and reinstall the extension!

Instead, all you need to do is to disable and re-enable Missing e in your browser's extensions list. Here's how:

Google Chrome

  • In the menu (click the wrench icon at the top right of the browser window), go to Tools and click on Extensions
  • In your extensions list, find the entry for Missing e
    • Uncheck the box labelled Enabled
    • Optional: Restart Chrome before continuing
    • Check the same box again to re-enable it
  • Reload your Tumblr dashboard
Re-enable Missing e on Chrome

Apple Safari

  • Open the Safari menu
    • Mac OS X: click Safari in the menu bar at the top of the screen
    • Windows: click on the gear icon at the top right of the browser window
  • In the Safari menu, click on Preferences
  • In the Preferences window, click the Extensions tab at the top
  • In your extensions list on the left, click the entry for Missing e
    • Uncheck the box labelled Enable Missing e
    • Optional: Restart Safari before continuing (you will need to open the Preferences window again)
    • Check the same box again to re-enable it
  • Reload your Tumblr dashboard
Re-enable Missing e on Safari

Mozilla Firefox

  • In the Firefox menu, go to Tools and click on Add-ons
  • In your add-ons list, find the entry for Missing e
    • Click the button labelled Disable
    • Optional: Restart Firefox before continuing (you will need to open the Add-ons list again)
    • Click the same button again (it will now be labelled Enable) to re-enable it
  • Reload your Tumblr dashboard
Re-enable Missing e on Firefox

Missing e isn't working properly or is causing problems! What do I do?

First, make sure that Missing e is up-to-date. To do this, go to the Missing e update page. If your version is not up-to-date, update it and then reload Tumblr.

Then, make sure that the problem is due to Missing e. To do this, try disabling Missing e (find out how) and then reload Tumblr. If the problem remains, then it is because of the Tumblr interface or another browser extension you are using, not Missing e.

If the problem is definitely with Missing e, submit a bug report with as many details about the problem as possible.

How do I temporarily disable Missing e?

It's a good idea to temporarily disable Missing e before submitting a bug report for a problem with the extension or when you need to contact Tumblr support. Here's how to do it:

Google Chrome

  • In the menu (click the wrench icon at the top right of the browser window), go to Tools and click on Extensions
  • In your extensions list, find the entry for Missing e
    • Uncheck the box labelled Enabled
    • Check the same box again when you are ready to re-enable it
  • Reload your Tumblr dashboard

  • Reload your Tumblr dashboard
Re-enable Missing e on Firefox

What happened to the Follow Checker feature?

What happened to the Unfollower feature?

Tumblr's terms of service does not allow certain automatic features that put significant strain on their servers. The Follow Checeker and Unfollower features could be a burdern on Tumblr's ability to server its users. These features were removed from Missing e as of version 2.0.0 to prevent just such problems.

I apologize for the inconvenience that affects users who depended on these features. However, I hope you will understand that these sacrifices were made so taht you may continue to use and receive new versions of Missing e.

Some users installed older versions of Missing e (1.7.6 or earlier) from third-party sites in order to keep the Follow Checker and Unfollower features. However, these older versions are no longer supported. Many other features have since become broken and can only be fixed by updating to the newest version of Missing e. If this is the case for you, first uninstall the old version and then install the current version from the official site!

Images on my dash show up as grey boxes unless I hover my mouse over them. How do I fix this?

If images and photos on your dashboard are hidden behind grey boxes (with a small lock icon), it means that you have activated the Safe Dash feature.

The purpose of Safe Dash is to hide images on your dashboard when you use Tumblr in a public setting. In case any of the images are offensive or embarassing, they are hidden unless you hover your mouse over the grey box.

If you did not intend to activate Safe Dash, you can disable it by clicking on the Safe Dash button in the sidebar of your Tumblr dashboard.

Your Security

A warning came up on Tumblr saying Missing e could cause problems on my blog, expose me to hacking or access my private information. Is this true?

I've heard that using Missing e could get your Tumblr account or posts deleted. Is this just a rumour?

You may have seen a warning message put out by Tumblr, suggesting that Missing e is a browser "hack" that could cause problems for your account. Rest assured that Missing e is completely safe. Using it will not cause your account or any of your posts to be deleted! The only change is that Tumblr will not provide technical help for your account while you are using Missing e.

The issues Tumblr mentions in their warning are a worst-case scenario for installing browser extensions, scripts or modifications of any kind. However, Missing e is not a source of these kinds of problems.

Data Loss

It is very unlikely that Missing e will cause any data loss. This is especially true of existing posts. Without your interaction, Missing e will not delete anything!

Privacy / Private Information

Missing e does not obtain, use or store your email address, password, IP address, search queries or contents of any of your existing posts.

There is a useful Tumblr post that explains what browser extension permissions Missing e uses, explaining many of the security notifications you get when installing the extension. Click here to read about that.

Page Scraping

Missing e implements only a small amount of what Tumblr calls page scraping. It is not done regularly, nor is it excessive. With it, you have access to features like adding your sidebar to all dashboard pages, seeing timestamps of messages in your inbox and being able to reblog yourself from the dashboard.

All users are encouraged to examine the Missing e source code to confirm all of these claims.

If you have any questions about specific problems you've heard are related to Missing e or about the extension in general, you are welcome to drop by the Missing e askbox. If you are still uncomfortable with using Missing e, please feel free to uninstall it (instructions).

The download page has a lot of warnings about what Missing e could do on my computer. Is it safe to install?

Browser extensions need to ask for certain permissions from your browser in order for many features to work. Please read this post on Tumblr for an explanation of the permissions that Missing e uses and why it uses them.

How can I customize how Missing e works?

How can I see or change my Missing e settings?

I don't want to use one of the features. How do I turn it off?

All of Missing e's features can be enabled, configured and disabled individually! This customizability is one of the extensions best assets.

Here's how to access the Missing e settings page:

Google Chrome

  • Click on the e. button at the top of any Tumblr dashboard page

    • Click on the Options link

Apple Safari

  • Click on the e. button at the top of any Tumblr dashboard page

OR

  • In the Safari menubar, click the e. button

Mozilla Firefox

  • Click on the e. button at the top of any Tumblr dashboard page

OR

  • In the Firefox add-on bar (usually at the bottom of the browser window), click on the e. button

How do I copy my Missing e settings from one browser to another?

On the browser you wish to copy your Missing e settings from (the source browser), go to the Missing e settings page (find out how to get there). At the top of the settings page, click on the Export button. A dialog box will appear allowing you to save your Missing e settings in an xml file.

If you are moving your Missing e settings to another computer, transfer your saved xml file to that computer.

Open the Missing e settings page in the browser to which you want to apply your settings (the destination browser). At the top of the page, click on the Import button. A dialog box will appear asking you to open an xml file. Select the xml file you created with the source browser.

When the file is opened, the extension will apply any changes. Any settings you have manually set in the source browser will be set in the destination browser. All settings that you have not manually set in the source browser will be reset to their default values in the destination browser.

Ask Tweaks

How do I add tags when I answer a message (ask)?

How do I queue (or save as draft) answers to messages (asks)?

Tagging of messages (asks) and additional post options (queue, draft, private) when you answer them (part of the Ask Tweaks feature) is disabled by default when you install Missing e. To enable it, you need to go to the settings page (find out how). Click the Social Features tab and, in the Ask Tweaks section, activate the setting labelled "add extra post options".

Better Reblogs

Why does Missing e add a # or ! to reblog buttons on post permalink pages?

The Better Reblogs feature can automatically keep the tags from a post when you reblog it. On individual post pages, Better Reblogs must get the tags from the Tumblr RSS feed. When this is successful (to show that tags will be preserved when you reblog), the reblog button changes to this:

Reblog with Tags button

During times when Tumblr is very busy or error-prone, the RSS feeds may not work correctly. Missing e will retry a few times before giving up. When that happens, tags will not be preserved when you reblog this post. To indicate this, the reblog button will change to this:

Reblog with Tags (failed) button

I don't want my reblogs to include tags from the original post. How can I turn that feature off?

The Better Reblogs feature can automatically keep the tags from a post when you reblog it. You can turn this off in the settings (find out how to get there), under the Post Features tab, in the Better Reblogs section.

You can:

  • Disable automatic adding of the original post's tags
    • You will still be able to add the original post tags by clicking on the "Reblog Tags" button
  • Turn off tag reblogging completely
    • Do this by turning off the checkbox labelled "Keep original tags when reblogging"

How do I turn on Quick (1-Click) Reblogging?

Quick (1-click) reblogging (part of the Better Reblogs feature) is disabled by default when you first install Missing e. To enable it, go to the settings page (find out how) and enable it under the Post Features tab, in the Better Reblogs section.

I want Quick (1-Click) Reblogging to post to one of my secondary Tumblr blogs. How can I do that?

If you want to post a reblog to a secondary Tumblr associated with your current account, simply select a different Tumblr blog in the quick reblog menu that appears when you hover over a reblog button. Then click to reblog!

If you want to change the blog that the quick reblog menu will post to by default, you can do so in the Missing e settings page (find out how to get there), under the Post Features tab, in the Better Reblogs section.

In these settings, either choose Main Blog or Secondary Blog and specify an account name in the box below. Remember that you must be able to post on the blog you specify with the account you are using. Otherwise, quick (1-click) reblogging will default to the first Tumblr blog in its list.

How do I add multiple tags when using Quick (1-Click) Reblogging?

When you hover your mouse over a post's reblog button, the quick reblog menu appears. In the "Tags" input box at the bottom, you can add and edit tags. To add multiple tags, simply separate each individual tag with a comma.

For example, to tag a post with #chocolate #cookie, simply type chocolate, cookie into the "Tags" input box before clicking the reblog button.

Bookmarker

Why does the bookmark icon not appear on some posts?

The Bookmarker feature allows you to jump directly to a post in your dashboard without having to scroll all the way there yourself. As such, you are only able to bookmark posts by Tumblrs that you follow. Other posts (like those on a tag search results page) will not have a bookmark icon that you can click on.

Why does loading a bookmarked post sometimes loads the dash at the wrong post or a post earlier than the one I bookmarked?

Some blogs (especially secondary tumblrs) do not behave correctly on your Tumblr dashboard. They may appear in your dashboard for a time, but after a while you may no longer be able to scroll to them. The posts are still visible on the Tumblr's personal page, but not on the dashboard.

Bookmarker may instead bring you to the next earlier post by someone that you follow.

This is an issue with Tumblr's dashboard and is not caused by Missing e.

How do I change the bookmark labels to 12-hour format instead of 24-hour?

How do I change the way the date and time is shown in bookmark labels?

In the Missing e settings (find out how to get there), you can change the default format of how the date and time will appear on bookmark labels. By default, the format will be %Y-%m-%D %H:%i, which would look like 2012-04-01 22:07.

There are plenty of these special format codes that you can use, all of them conveniently listed alongside the format option in the settings page. For example, if you wanted that same bookmark to show up as missing-e: 1-Apr-2011 10:07pm (for a post published by Tumblr "missing-e"), you would enter the format as %u: %d-%M-%Y %g:%i%a.

How do I change the name of a bookmark to something more useful?

You can set a custom name for a bookmark when you create it:

  • Hold down the Shift key when you click on the bookmark icon of a post
  • A popup box will appear for you to type in the custom bookmark name

You can change the name of an existing bookmark:

  • Hold down the Shift key when you click on a bookmark in the bookmark list in your dashboard sidebar
  • The bookmark entry will change to an input where you can type in the custom name
  • If you decide not to change the name, just press the Esc key

Dashboard Tweaks

How do I shuffle or randomize posts in my queue?

The queue Shuffle button (part of the Dashboard Tweaks feature) is disabled by default when you first install Missing e. To enable it, you need to go to the settings page (find out how) and enable it under the Dashboard Features tab, in the Dashboard Tweaks section.

Once activated, a Shuffle button will be added to the sidebar whenever you are in your Tumblr Queue. Clicking it will randomize the order of the queued posts currently visible on the page.

Why does the Shuffle button not randomize all the posts in my queue (including ones not currently on the page)?

Due to the way the Tumblr interface works, the Shuffle button can only randomize queued posts that are currently visible in the Queue page.

However, you can use Tumblr's endless scrolling dashboard feature to load as many queued posts as you want. The Shuffle button can then randomize a larger set of queued posts.

What is the experimental "Allow replies to reblogs" setting? Why is it experimental?

Experimental settings add useful, interesting features to Tumblr, but may not work reliably. This setting is provided for your use, but is not supported and may be removed from Missing e at any time, without notice. Support questions regarding this setting will be ignored!

The "Allow replies to reblogs" option allows you to reply to reblogged posts with an experimental or [reply] button. If the user who reblogged it has enabled "Show notifications" in their Tumblr preferences, they will most likely receive a notification of your reply. However, your reply may not always show up in the post's notes if you have also reblogged it (or reblog it after replying).

Under some conditions, reblog replies may not work. When a reblog reply is sent, the experimental reply button will be replaced with or , if successful. If the reply fails, you will see or  reply .

Dash Links to Tabs

I don't want Missing e to open all these new tabs. How do I stop it?

In the settings (find out how to get there), under the Dashboard Features tab, in the Dash Links to Tabs section, you can change if and when Missing e opens new tabs.

You can change whether or not new tabs are opened for these actions:

  • clicking the new post buttons at the top of your dashboard
  • clicking buttons in your Tumblr sidebar
  • clicking the reblog button for dashboard posts
  • clicking the edit button on your own posts in the dashboard

If you do not want any new tabs to be opened, simply click the big ON/OFF toggle switch for the Dash Links to Tabs feature in the Missing e settings page.

When I click on a link in with the Safari browser, it opens in a new window instead of a tab. How can I change that?

By default, Safari will open any link that asks for a new window in another browser window instead of a new tab. You can change this behaviour in Safari's preferences.

  • Open the Safari menu
    • Mac OS X: click Safari in the menu bar at the top of the screen
    • Windows: click the gear icon at the top right of the browser window
  • In the Safari menu, click on Preferences
  • In the Preferences window, click the Tabs button at the top
  • Change the setting labelled "Open pages in tabs instead of windows" to "Automatically"
Safari preferences - open pages in tabs

Goto Dash Post

Why does clicking on the Goto Dash button of some posts bring me to the wrong post on the dashboard or a post earlier than the correct one?

Some blogs (especially secondary tumblrs) do not behave correctly on your Tumblr dashboard. They may appear in your dashboard for a time, but after a while you may no longer be able to scroll to them. The posts are still visible on the Tumblr's personal page, but not on the dashboard.

Goto Dash Post may instead bring you to the next earlier post by someone that you follow.

This is an issue with Tumblr's dashboard and is not caused by Missing e.

Keyboard Shortcuts

How do I use keyboard shortcuts on Tumblr?

The basic Tumblr interface allows you to navigate your dashboard using only your keboard:

  • J - Jump to the next post in the dashboard
  • K - Jump to the previous post in the dashboard

If you use Tumblr's endless scrolling dashboard, you can continue navigating through posts using these keys. However, if you do not use endless scrolling, navigating with J and K will stop once you reach the bottom (or top) of the dashboard.

To improve navigation for people who don't use endless scrolling, Missing e provides a setting that you can activate in the Dashboard Tweaks feature (find out how to get to the settings page) that wil cause the J and K keys to jump to the next page automatically when you reach the bottom (or top) of the current page!

When you navigate on your dashboard with the J and K keys, Tumblr and Missing e provide a few more keyboard shortcuts that can perform certain actions on the current post:

  • L - Like the current post (this feature is part of the Tumblr interface)
  • M - Bookmark the current post
  • C - Open the comment/reply box for the current post
  • E - Edit the current post
  • S - Select the current post for mass deletion (when that feature is active)

If you use the Missing e quick (1-click) reblogging feature (find out how to activate it), the following keyobard shortcuts are also available:

  • R - Reblog the current post using quick reblogging
  • D - Reblog the current post to your drafts using quick reblogging
  • Q - Reblog the current post to your queue using quick reblogging
  • T - Open the quick reblog menu to add/edit tags (then press one of the other keys to reblog it)

Magnifier

How do I use Magnifier? Where is it?

Magnifier adds a small Magnifier icon icon to all photo posts on the dashboard. Simply click on it to view the full-size image without ever leaving the dashboard. Magnifier will resize the image to fit on your screen, but you can click on the enlarged image to open it in a new tab or window.

The Magnifier icon is also added to photoset posts. When you click on it, the enlarged images will appear as a slideshow that you can navgiate using arrow buttons on either side.

Why is the Magnifier enlarged photo still not full size?

Photos enlarged by Magnifier are shown scaled down so that they fit into your browser window. You can click on the enlarged photo to open it in its own tab or window at full size.

How can I enlarge Tumblr user avatars?

The option that enables enlarging of Tumblr user avatars (part of the Magnifier feature) is disabled by default when you first install Missing e. To enable it, you need to go to the settings page (find out how) and enable it under the Dashboard Features tab, in the Magnifier section.

When the option is enabled, Magnifier adds a Magnify Avatar Icon icon to Tumblr avatars that appears when you hover your mouse over the small avatar image. Clicking on this icon enlarges the avatar image without leaving the current page.

Mass Editor Tweaks

Why can't I select more posts in the Mass Editor? I can select some, but then the select buttons stop working!

Why can I only select 100 posts in the Mass Editor?

The Tumblr Mass Editor is limited to deleting or editing tags for only 100 posts at a time. This is a limitation of the Tumblr interface, not Missing e.

Posting Tweaks

Why is the '+ Upload Photo' button not showing up on a new post or edit post page?

Much like the '+ Upload Photo' button that Tumblr places on new text posts pages, Posting Tweaks must load an additional Tumblr page in the background before adding the button. During times when Tumblr is very busy or error-prone, this page my not load.

Try reloading the post page to get it to try again.

Reblog Yourself

Why do the reblog links for some of my posts in the dashboard show up like this: or  reblog ?

To add a reblog link to some of your posts on the dashboard, Reblog Yourself has to read additional Tumblr post information in the background. During times when Tumblr is very busy or error-prone, this may not work correctly. Reblog Yourself will retry a few times before giving up and showing: or  reblog .

You can click on this button to make Reblog Yourself try again. If it shows up without the exclamation mark (or without the strikethrough text), then the link works!

Reply Replies

How do I reply to a reply (or other post note)?

Although you can also reply to notes loaded by clicking on the notes count button of a dashboard post, it is best if you enable Show notifications in your Tumblr preferences to show notifications directly on your dashboard.

Just click on the notification icon on the right side of the one of these notifications (heart, reply bubble, etc) to open a new post with the notification already added, ready for you to comment on.

You can also reply to the notes that are displayed when you click on the notes count button of a dashboard post. Simply click on the notification icon on the right side of one of these notes to open a new post with the notification already added, ready for you to comment on.

How do I reply to more than one notification at once?

  1. Hold down the Shift key and click on the icons of each of the notifications you want to reply to.
  2. Let go of the Shift key and click on the icon of the last notification you want to include.
  3. All the notifications will appear in a single Reply Replies post in chronological order.

When I click to reply to a notification, the new post is blank. How do I fix this?

This can usually be fixed by clearing your browser's cache.

Important! Make sure not to clear "site data" or "local storage data" or your Missing e bookmarks may be lost.

Sidebar Tweaks

How do I get my blog sidebar (posts, followers, messages, etc.) on every dashboard page?

You can add a blog sidebar (which includes your post, follower, message, draft and queue counts) to dashboard pages that don't normall have them. You can activate this feature in the settings page (find out how to get there), under the Dashboard Features tab, in the Sidebar Tweaks section.

How do I choose which Tumblr blog sidebar gets added to every dashboard page?

When you activate the added blog sidebar feature (find out how), Sidebar Tweaks will start out by adding the blog sidebar for your primary Tumblr blog associated with your account. If you want a different blog's sidebar to appear, click on the blog title at the top of the added sidebar and then select a different Tumblr blog from the menu that appears.

When you select a different blog, your choice will be remembered the next time that you load the dashboard! Please note that you cannot switch the blog sidebars shown on blog pages (/blog/your-name).

Timestamps

How do I change the timestamp to 12-hour format instead of 24-hour?

How do I change the way the date and time is shown in timestamps?

In the Missing e settings (find out how to get there), you can change the default format of how the date and time will appear on post timestamps. By default, the format will be %Y-%m-%D %H:%i, which would look like 2012-04-01 22:07.

There are plenty of these special format codes that you can use, all of them conveniently listed alongside the format option in the settings page. For example, if you wanted that same timestamp to show up as 1-Apr-2011 10:07pm, you would enter the format as %d-%M-%Y %g:%i%a.

Timestamps on dashboard posts are always off by a few hours. How do I fix this?

The time that shows up on dashboard posts is incorrect. How do I fix them?

The Missing e Timestamps feature uses the time of a post obtained from Tumblr. If Tumblr's post time is incorrect, so will Missing e's timestamp.

If your timestamps are always off by the same number of hours, this is likely because you have not set your timezone in your Tumblr blog's settings.

Here's how to configure your Tumblr timezone:

  1. Go to the settings page for your primary blog
    • www.tumblr.com/blog/your-name/settings
    • Replace your-name with the username of your primary blog
  2. Select the correct timezone for where you live from the Timezone drop-down box part way down the page
  3. Click the Save button at the bottom of the page

Why do timestamps sometimes fail to load on messages in my inbox?

To add the date and/or time to messages (except Fan Mail) in your inbox, the Timestamps feature has to get additional information about that message from Tumblr, in the background. During times when Tumblr is very busy or error-prone, this may not work correctly. Timestamps will retry a few times before giving up and displaying: Timestamp loading failed. Retry.

You can click on "Retry" to try loading the timestamp again.
