You can empower the submit include on any Tumblr blog to give different clients a chance to submit posts for production. In a business setting, this enables your clients and customers to post content without having rights to get to the blog administration devices. Empowering entries can mix it up of your blog’s substance, and in addition support engagement and pull in more visits.
How It Works
If the submit feature is enabled on a Tumblr blog, visitors can click the “Submit” link and create posts of their own. The types of permitted posts are set by the blog owner, but can include text, photos, quotes, links and videos; chat and audio submissions are not available. Any submissions arrive in the blog owner’s inbox, where they can be approved for publication or dismissed — submitted posts are not published until they have been moderated. If the user submitting the post is not already registered with Tumblr, a name and email address is required.
Allowing other users to submit posts gives your blog more variety, bringing in different influences and voices. If you’re curating a blog of links related to your business, for example, then enabling submissions means the site can benefit from the research of others, thus sparing you from having to do all the work yourself. It’s also a useful way of allowing colleagues from the same company to post content to a blog without allowing them access to the Tumblr dashboard where administrator changes to the blog can be made. The built-in moderation feature applied to submissions should prevent unwelcome or irrelevant content from being posted.

To enable submissions on a blog you’re in charge of, visit the Tumblr Preferences screen and click the name of the relevant blog. Tick the box labelled “Let people submit posts,” and then specify the types of post that are accepted. You can also set a title for the submission page, and write out a small list of guidelines that will be displayed to anyone wanting to submit a post. The “Optional tags for submitter” box enables you to list several suggested tags for the new post, though the user submitting the content is not obliged to accept them, and can make changes.
Custom Theme Tweaks
If the submit feature is enabled on your Tumblr blog, then pointing users towards “/submit” will bring up the submission page. Many Tumblr themes automatically display a Submit button once the function is switched on, though on some themes you may need to make changes via the Customize page. If the link does not appear, you can add it manually to the blog’s description or create a new static page that redirects to the submission URL.
