…and it’s broken my blog. It used to display a music post’s cover art, no matter what post size I used (my blog theme has 3 sizes), but now it will only display a cover if I use the medium size. All of my music posts have been in the smallest size, meaning all of the album art (a lot of which I personally edit to a high standard and upload myself) has been excised from the actual blog part of this Tumblr.
Over the years, I’ve tried to make my blog look like the wall of a record store, plastering it with cover art and posters/art. Tumblr’s new music player no longer lets that happen, in that even if I were to post at the medium post size, fully half of the new player is an equalizer visualization, meaning fully half of the visual content of my blog would be this fucking useless flash based gimmick. That doesn’t sound appealing to me. I whined to the support team, and that did not work. I’m kind of at a loss about what to do, not being sure that tumblr is going to be able to offer what I’ve been trying to accomplish.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Should I just abandon the record-store-wall format? Should I explore a new platform? Did anyone reading this blog ever really care what it looks like?
