    I should know this but.......my toilet doesn't flush properly but I am convinced it's not blocked.

    I can dump 1/2 gallon of water directly into the bowl and it dumps perfectly but when I flush it normally it just kind of swirls around and won't completely empty the bowl. The flapper is opening fully.

    Can the water flow from the tank to the bowl get blocked??

    Yes, try taking a coat hanger and poking the small holes under the lip of the bowl to free up any sedement.
