Powerful Menu & Widgets

Uptown has a powerful slide-in sidebar that can feature your latest photographs from Flickr, your most recent tweets, new designs on Dribbble, and more.

Social buttons let people follow your adventures on your various social media channels — we support dozens of different icons and networks (and we’re always adding more!) — and they appear in their own space on the right of every page.

Uptown Widgets

Blog or Grid Layout

By default, Uptown will arrange your posts in a grid-style “masonry” layout, which looks great on any screen. (Plus, you can make posts double-sized by tagging them with “featured”.)

If you’d prefer to have a regular, blog-style layout, that’s fine too. It’s just one toggle away.

Layout Types

Drop-Down Featured Tags

You can choose to add a drop-down menu to your blog navigation, with links to particular tags that you’d like to feature.

Just enter your chosen tags (separated by commas) in the Customise page, and these will show up in a nicely styled list in the sidebar.

It’s a great way to organise your posts, and make your blog easy to navigate!

Drop Down Tags

Customise Everything

You can change any and every aspect of Uptown to match your style.

Fonts and typography, colours, layout, backgrounds, whether to display post information on the homepage — you name it, you can customise it!

It looks great right out of the box, but it’s simple to put your own stamp on the design (and we’re here to help you every step of the way!)

Alternate Layout

Share Away

With one click, visitors can share your content across different social channels: Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Google+.

This is in addition to all the usual Tumblr features, allowing people to like and reblog your content. Don't let your incredible content go unnoticed!


Keyboard Navigation

A unique feature makes it easy for your readers to flick around your site, using only their keyboard.

H takes you home, R takes you to a random post, and the Left and Right arrows navigate between posts or pages. Discover a whole new way to browse your Tumblr site!
