    Is anyone else having trouble with importing their Tumblr blog posts to WordPress.com?

    I contacted Tumblr Support on this issue and they said they have a brand new API as of September 2012. It appears that WordPress can no longer connect successfully to the Tumblr API without some kind of update.

    See the Tumblr article below for details:

    The blog I need help with is markpalfreeman.wordpress.com.

    That is very odd, we’ll look into this. Thanks!

    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.

    Makes sense. That’s what I thought!

    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!

    I think this issue has reappeared. My import function (that’s been working well for years) has stopped connecting to Tumblr about a week ago…
