How do I import my Tumblr to WordPress?
I’ve looked around quite a bit on the WordPress site and can’t find an easy way to do it. Please help!
The blog I need help with is sparklesense.wordpress.com.
I thought at one point there was a option to import from tumblr but I don’t see an import tumblr option in the dashboard so I will modlook this thread to alert staff.
Tumblr has broken the way we had previously done the import, so for now we have removed the importer.
We’ll have a new importer up, ready for Tumblr’s new API, as soon as possible.
Is there any way you could email me when the new importer is up?
Thank you in advance for your help!
Staff will not email you. However, you can subscribe to the RSS Feed in the sidebar of this thread and get the updates.
Okay, thank you!
You’re welcome. :)
The WP tumblr importer is not working. Is this still a problem for everyone?
yes it is still a problem. I have not been told that a new importer is ready yet.
Thanks ainak, the site you linked was most helpful! :)
Hi there. We’ve switched the Tumblr importer over to the new API and relaunched, so you should be all set to import now. Just let us know if you encounter any problems with the import. Thanks!
Could you provide a download link to the new plugin?
Alas, the wordpress.com version departs a bit from the .org one, as they have to use different ways of logging into Tumblr. Work is underway on the .org version, but it’s not quite ready yet. You’ll have to stay tuned here for the release of that plugin. I’ll see if there’s anything I can do to help nudge a fix along.
dllh, getting a “Page Not Found” on that link.
In the mean time, I could probably just create a new, temporary wordpress.com blog just to import my posts from Tumblr, then do an export of the resulting blog, and import it into my hosted version, right?
Whoops, two issues:
1. I think the plugin listing may have been disabled since it’s broken.
2. I gave you the wrong link to begin with.
Try keeping tabs on it here instead.
Awesome – thanks!
(I posted a separate thread on this, but thought it might get noticed better here.)
Thanks for re-enabling the tumblr import. One problem I found running an import today is that tumblr ‘Link’ posts only seem to import the ‘Title’ and ‘URL’ elements. The optional tumblr ‘Description’ field isn’t imported, which means those import items are missing any descriptive text.
Same thing applies to import of ‘Gallery’ posts – the optional ‘Caption’ field is missing.
Is that something that can be addressed?
