Tumblr will now let you search the site for full text rather than just tags, making it much easier to find exactly the kind of content you’re looking for on the blog site.

In addition to full text enabled search, the site will also allow users to search within a specific blog through the dashboard. Finally, Tumblr now lets users filter and sort results, and allows users to search for original posts.

Here’s the blog post in full:

Three massive improvements to the way you search for posts on a blog:

  • You can do it from your dashboard. Click a blog’s name or avatar to open it up, then click the magnifying glass at the top of the blog. Now type. Type like you mean it. Get your results. Yum.
  • You can filter and sort the results. Click the abacus-looking thing for all your favorite filters. New bonus filter: Limit your search to original posts.
  • It’s full text. And that goes for searches from the dashboard as well as those directly from a blog’s theme. Used to be we just searched tags. Now we peruse every word.
