This tutorial covers how to download a full Tumblr blog. You will be able to download all chats, audio video files, tags, quotes, text posts, images, link posts, animated GIFs, audio metadata, and video metadata of any Tumblr blog. Thus, you will have the full offline backup of your or some other user’s public Tumblr blog. For doing this, I’m using a free software “TumblThree“.
It is a very powerful software and using this Tumblr blog downloader software is also very simple. Apart from downloading a Tumblr blog, you can also add multiple Tumblr blogs in the queue and download them. The download speed is also good as it supports concurrent connections.
In the screenshot above, you can see I downloaded my Tumblr blog using this software. The downloaded files include GIFs, images, audio files, video files, tags, etc. Conversations, texts, and quotes are downloaded as plain text files. A single text file is created for all tags/quotes/text. That text file contains URLs of each individual chat/tag/quote and chat/tag/quote text.
If you don’t want to download the full Tumblr blog, then you can also specify pages (such as 1-5, or 1,2,3 or 1) and posts per page. After that, it will fetch data from those pages only and save them to the default folder or custom folder set by you.
How To Download Full Tumblr Blog Including Chats, Audio, Video, Tags, Etc Using This Software?
Step 1: Get the zip file of this software which contains its portable application. Executing that application will open its interface.
Step 2: On its interface, you need to add the URL of a Tumblr blog on the bottom left side and press “Add Blog” button. Once done, click on Crawl button.
That’s it! The software will start the crawling process and check how many posts are there to download. You can see Number of Downloads, progress, Blog username, and other details on the top left part of its interface. When the crawling process is done, it starts downloading the Tumblr blog.
One by one, all URLs are fetched to download images, quotes, text posts, video files, audio files, etc. You can also see the thumbnail preview of currently downloading image, video, etc., on the bottom right section.
Step 3: By default, it downloads text posts, images, videos, image data, link posts, quote posts, audio files, and conversion posts. But, you can also include video metadata and audio metadata using the right section of its interface.
You can also uncheck posts that you don’t want to download.
Step 5: This step is helpful to set concurrent connections for downloading the Tumblr blog. You can use Settings window of this software and set concurrent connections between 1 to 100.
Apart from that, you will also be able to set concurrent video connections (1-100), concurrent blogs to download, and image and video size (in pixels). Option to change output folder location is also available in the settings window.
Adjust settings as per your needs and let this software backup the added Tumblr blog(s) for you.
Earlier, we also covered free Tumblr photo downloader and Tumblr video downloader software. But, those software don’t help you save an entire Tumblr blog. So, if you are looking for a simple and good option to download or backup your Tumblr blog, then this software is simply awesome. I also like the feature to select pages to save posts and option to set concurrent downloads.
