Tumblr Technical Problems, April 3

There seems to be a problem with Activity and Dashboard pages, with some pages not loading, notes disappearing and XKit double or even triple posting some posts. There are some reports of a “Bad Gateway” page appearing instead of pages requested. It doesn’t happen on all accounts, but it looks like Tumblr is having some technical difficulties.

Some features of XKit such as One-Click Postage and TagViewer will not function properly until these server-side problems is fixed.

Unfortunately, there isn’t much I can do about this, I apologize for that.

A personal message from XKit Guy (updated)

I would like to clear the air on a subject, because just like the accusations of be being “raging racist” a couple of months ago (when I was talking about my race, country and culture), people are once again twisting my words and linking unrelated posts to make me look like "the evil guy hiding behind a good man mask".

I was not going to write about this, but since there are even people saying that I am condoning, if not downright asking, people to attack several bloggers, and I would like that to stop.

Read mored, I apologize if you are on mobile.

An apology (again) from the XKit Guy

As you know, I’ve been very busy lately, and that is the reason why updates to XKit have been scarce for about 2 months now.

Once again, I apologize deeply about some bugs that still exist on XKit. I’m working on fixing them, and they will be made available as soon as possible. I will also add new features whenever I have some free time.

Also, I’ve received a lot of asks while I was gone. I’ve read them all, then tried to reply to all of them, but after a couple of hours and ~450 asks later, I kinda got burned out. I am terribly sorry if you did not get a reply.

If you did not get a reply to your ask, it’s most likely that the problem was fixed since the ask was sent. if your problem continues, please send me an ask and I will reply tomorrow.

Thank you so much for your understanding.

Introducing Iconified Notifications

Iconified Notifications is a new, experimental extension that replaces words such as “liked your post” or “started following you” with icons, making it easier to differentiate notification types, and freeing up space for post summary.

It’s pretty new, so if you hit any bugs, please let me know by sending an ask. Thank you!

Special thanks to For Orchestra for the idea.

XInbox and Tagging Asks, Part II

XInbox version 1.9 Rev A is now available. This fixes the tagging problem that I’ve posted about a while ago.

Since I’ve managed to fix the problem by removing the buttons Tumblr adds and replacing them by those created by XKit, unfortunately, now the buttons are in English no matter what language you use Tumblr in, and Queue/Draft buttons are always visible.

I’m working on fixing those two, but for now, you can now tag posts before publishing them once again. Thank you for your patience.

XInbox and Tagging Asks

A recent Tumblr change broke XInbox’s tag-before-publishing functionality. I’ve been working on fixing it for a while now, but it looks like they’ve changed it in a way to especially block this function from working: calls to Tumblr servers that before returned the data successfully now return a “Not found” error.

I’m not sure if this is a temporary bug or a change made in order to block XInbox from working, and I’ll see if I can make it work once again, but for now it looks like I might have to remove this function.

I know that a lot of people use this function, so I am trying my best to find a workaround, but I’m not sure if I can find one. I apologize deeply for this and thank you for your patience.

Update: It’s fixed now.

An apology (and confession) from the XKit Guy

I’m terribly sorry about the lack of updates since, well, January. As you know, I usually push updates for XKit nearly every day, try to add a new extension/feature every week, and try to reply to your asks in less than 24 hours. But for the last 2 months, updates were scarce, and in my inbox there are still asks from a couple of days ago waiting to be answered.

I can not apologize enough for this. The thing is, I was very busy with work and school, and in addition to those two, I’ve been working on something, for a long time. I did not post about it here since I didn’t know if I could actually, well, pull it off. I still can’t provide any details about it, but I hope it will be worth the wait. I will share the details very soon, hopefully.

I still read each and every ask I receive and working on trying to fix some of the bugs that I’ve received bug reports about, and fixes will be provided as soon as possible. And as soon as what I’m working on is finished, I will direct my full time and energy on adding new features.

Once again, I’m terribly sorry about this. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding. - The XKit Guy

XKit and Ads

I’ve been receiving asks from people (and seeing posts under the XKit tag) saying that after installing XKit, they started seeing ads on Tumblr. I would like to make one thing clear: there is absolutely not a single line of code in XKit that would cause ads to appear.

I loathe ads as much as the next guy and would rather make XKit a paid product than display ads on your dashboard. (Edit: Tumblr do display ads on your dashboard as “sponsored posts” and on search pages, those are unrelated to any software you might have installed.)

If you are seeing ads on top of the page, getting popups, etc, I recommend installing a security application and performing a check (make sure it’s not rogue, though) and then go through the list of installed extensions to make sure you do not have an extension that you don’t remember installing.

To learn how to check your installed extensions and remove them:
Chrome | Firefox | Safari
