My photo posts are not showing correctly on Tumblr

Recently due to changes on Tumblrs posting you may encounter a small issue where photo posts are displaying as a text post would. Symptoms include container box having a scrollbar or blank space around the image.

You want to ensure it looks like this when creating a new post;
Create photo post on tumblr

The fix is to ensure that:

1. Tumblr’s beta post editor is switched off.
Why? It defaults posts as text posts.

To turn it off: Create a new post on https://www.tumblr.com/dashboard
At the top right look for the BETA sign and switch it off (grey).

2. Make posts on desktop or web browser.
Why? Posts made on mobile or through the app default as “text” posts.



2023 Update

New Tumblr accounts will not be able to turn off the beta post editor. Meaning you will need to wait for a fix to be published by Stash Themes to support tumblrs new posting system.
