    Hi there,

    I’ve reset the Tumblr importer for your site so you can try again.

    If it seems to take long, please be patient and don’t try cancelling the process yourself – we’re experiencing a high volume of imports from Tumblr at the moment causing a backlog of pending imports in our system. The imports are being run in the order they are submitted.

    If the new import doesn’t complete within 24 hours, please let us know.



    It is now 24 hours and the import page still shows 0/120 posts imported. And I have another blog with over 1000 posts that needs to transfer over, but I am unwilling to do that until this one works. Good luck, guys – the traffic may only get worse :) Which I guess helps your bottom line in the long run, but the short run is going to be h*ll.



    Hi there,

    I’ve double checked to confirm your import is still queued. But please do reconnect to your Tumblr account if you’ve disconnected it, as that could be preventing it from starting.

    We’re processing quite a few imports from Tumblr at the moment, which is causing a backlog of imports in our system. While it may look like your import failed, it’s just in line for processing, and luckily it’s still in the queue. At this point I’m not able to give an estimate on how long it might take to catch up with the backlog, though.
