    My name is Matthew Porter. I have a wordpress account with you (username: matthewporter)

    I am trying to move a tumblr blog (url: to wordpress to a new blog I have set up (blog URL below). I’ve tried using the wordpress tumblr import tool but when I enter my correct tumblr details, which I’ve triple checked on a number of occasions, the message I get is… (see below). Please can you advise!


    Tumblr replied with an error:

    Not found.
    We couldn’t find the page you were looking for.

    Find out why you may have encountered
    this error.


    Many thanks

    Is the “Find out why you may have encountered this error.” a link?

    Regardless, you will need Staff assistance to sort this out and this thread has been tagged for their attention. Please be patient while they get back to you.



    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.



    Thanks for the info, macmanx



    You’re welcome!


    Yea, thanks for the swift reply.



    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!
