How to Reblog Things on Tumblr When No Reblog Button Shows Up


Similar to Facebook and other social networking sites, Tumblr sometimes removes features it once supported or makes changes that alter how existing features behave. In some cases, the website might even roll out changes to only certain users, so some account holders might lose or gain access to features, while others are left unaffected. Tumblr used to allow you to reblog your own posts, but the website removed the option at the beginning of 2013. As a workaround, you can install a third-party extension, XKit, to your browser to re-enable the feature.

  • Download and install XKit (link in Resources) to your browser and then log in to your Tumblr.

  • Follow the on-screen prompts to embed XKit to your dashboard and then select the new XKit icon from the menu bar.

  • Select the "Get Extensions" tab and then click the "Install" button under the Reblog Yourself extension. Click anywhere outside the XKit window to return to your dashboard.

  • Scroll to the appropriate post on your dashboard, or navigate to the appropriate Tumblr blog and click the title of the post you want to reblog.

  • Click the "Reblog" button. If you're reblogging from your dashboard, the button is located on the bottom of the post; if you're reblogging from the post page, the button is located on the top of the page.

  • Choose a blog to post the reblog to and then click the "Reblog" button or the "Reblog Post" button. The interface varies depending on whether you're reblogging from your dashboard or from the blog itself.

Tips & Warnings

  • If the post you want to reblog doesn't have a title and you can't find a link to the post page, click the "Follow" button on the top of the page to add the Tumblr to your dashboard and then reblog the post from there.
