Missing e v2.9.15 Fixes: Smart Redirect, Magnifier for crush avatars
An update just went out the door with a couple of small fixes.
First, I’ve fixed a problem that caused the avatars in your Tumblr Crushes to be unclickable for the Missing e Magnifier feature.
Second, I’ve corrected an issue that caused the new-ish Smart Redirect option in the Posting Tweaks feature to not work properly for some people with only one blog associated with their account.
If you don’t want to wait for the new version to automatically update, you can do so manually by visiting http://missing-e.com/update and following the instructions!
How to use Smart Redirecting [New in v2.9.11]
I just added this new option to Missing e version 2.9.11 (update now). You’ll find it in the settings page (find out how to get there under the Post Features in the Posting Tweaks section. It is off by default, but you can activate it.
It works only on new posts, and will not affect where your web browser goes after you reblog a post (since Tumblr usually will bring you back to where you were on the dash when you finish reblogging).
So, if you turn this option on, here’s what you can expect:
- If you click a new post button on your dashboard and then publish a post, you’ll redirect to the dashboard, like normal
- If you click a new post button in your blog page (/blog/username) and then publish a post, it’ll redirect to the blog page of whichever blog you posted to
- If you post a new (not reblogged) post to your queue or drafts, you’ll be redirected to the right queue or drafts
I’m not sure why this isn’t the norm already!
Missing e v2.5.5
Simpler Highlighted Posts
I’ve added a new option to the Dashboard Tweaks feature to simplify how the new Tumblr highlighted posts are displayed on the dash. They’ll still grab attention and have nifty message ribbons, but they will flow better with other posts in your dash.
This option is disabled by default. If you want to use it, you must turn in on in the Missing e settings page (find out how to get there).
- The new implementation for Reblog Yourself now displays the “Send to Twitter” checkbox so you can choose whether or not to post to twitter.
- A bug for the extra post buttons (Queue, Draft, Private) in the Tumblr Share bookmarklet has been fixed for users of Firefox 10 and higher.
If you want the new version immediately, DO NOT uninstall and reinstall Missing e, instead, read the instructions on how to update:
Firefox users: If you do not want to wait for automatic updates, you can update just by installing the new version over top of your existing one from the versions page.
If version 2.5.5 or higher does not appear in the list, you can wait until later, or use this direct link to install.
Want to learn about a couple of lesser-known Missing e features?
There are many features in Missing e that you either don’t notice because they are seamlessly applied to your Tumblr experience or maybe because they are not activated by default and you have to turn them on in the settings.
I’ll highlight four of these for you and maybe try make a habit of this kind of post!
Ask Box on Dashboard
Sometimes you want to send someone an Ask, but you’re in the middle of scrolling back on the dashboard. Or you just don’t want to open a new page or tab! Well, under the Ask Tweaks feature in the Missing e settings, you can activate an option to open ask boxes on the dashboard.
Once this option is activated, simply click on the i icon that shows up on their avatar when you hover your mouse over it. The box that comes up can even be moved around by dragging it with your mouse!
Most Tumblr users create new posts in the “rich text editor”. You can see images and links as you put them in and you don’t need to know any HTML. The only downside is that the rich text editor isn’t resizable. It’s fairly small, so long posts or posts with big images are hard to work on!
By default, Missing e’s Posting Tweaks feature will add a resize handle to the rich text editor. To give yourself more room to create your post, just click and drag the resize handle (it looks like a triangle made up of two lines in the bottom right corner of the editor box).
Reblog Long Text Posts
Normally, if you try to reblog a long text post, Tumblr will cause your reblogged post to be a Link post pointing at the original, with the text cut off. You can easily choose to reblog the full text post by clicking the “as…” button at the top of the page, or get Missing e to do it automatically!
Although the option is not activated by default, you can have Missing e always let you reblog long text posts as text by turning it on under the Better Reblogs feature in the settings.
Reply Replies with Photos
Many Missing e users know that you can automatically create reply posts to respond to likes, replies and reblogs of your posts. However, did you know you can also create a “reply reply” with a photo post instead? Simply click the “as…” button at the top of the page to reply with a different kind of post!
