How do I install Fotomoto on Tumblr?

Last Updated: Nov 21, 2012 12:38PM PST


  1. Because there are many different Tumblr themes available, some with custom JavaScript coding and libraries, and we can't claim to be compatible with all of them. Please see the list of compatible Tumblr themes on our How page. Other themes may work as well, but we do not provide support for them.
  2. Fotomoto Buy Buttons may not display as expected in a multi-image post (photoset).
  3. Because Tumblr renames the image files that you post to your Tumblr site, Tumblr isn't compatible with Fotomoto's Auto Pickup feature.

  1. Get the Fotomoto Script

    Go to the Settings page of the Fotomoto Dashboard, click the Get Script button and copy the Fotomoto Script.

  2. Click Customize in your Tumblr account

    In Tumblr, click on MyBlog at the top right, then click the Customize appearance link, under the MyBlog heading.

  3. Paste in the Fotomoto Script

    In the Description window, paste in your Fotomoto Script, then click the Save + Close button

  4. Add some CSS

    In order for the Buy Buttons to look right, you'll need to add some custom CSS to your Dashboard:

    1. Go to the Settings > Store Appearance page in your Dashboard
    2. Click the "Show/Hide CSS" toggle button
    3. Add line-height: 1em !important; to the FotomotoToolbarClass declaration as shown below.

  5. Success!

    Your blog should now have the Fotomoto Buy Buttons under the images on your Tumblr site.
