Using the Dashboard Menu

Tumblr’s Dashboard menu is located at the top of your screen and contains several icon links to assist you with navigating through your account. You can tell you’re in the right place if the URL (after logging in) in your browser’s address bar says www.tumblr.com/dashboard (see Figure 4-1).

Figure 4-1: The Dashboard Menu helps you navigate through your account.

Tip.eps If you’re logged into your Tumblr blog and can see a little gray button labeled “Dashboard” anywhere on your screen (usually in the top- or bottom-right corner), click that button to get to your account’s Dashboard.

The Dashboard stays at the top of the screen on most pages of your account when you’re logged in — except when you’re customizing your blog’s appearance and when you’re using the Mass Post Editor (which you find out about in Chapter 6). You can click these buttons at any time to access the following features, which are described in detail in the remaining sections of this chapter: Dashboard, [Name of your blog], Add Blog, Inbox (this icon appears only when the Ask and Submit features with a unified Inbox are enabled in your Settings and Preferences), Help, Preferences, and Log Out.
