Tumblr Import Removed Images

    Hi and Merry Christmas,

    I’m one of the many simblrs migrating to WordPress. I mainly had image posts, and during the import, it seems those images were divorced from the text/tags, and grouped in the Media gallery. In other words, my posts were imported, but without the pictures. Your help is greatly appreciated.



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



    @justsimroarks did all of your posts have galleries? It seems the images came through but the galleries did not. We’re checking in with our developers, but any info you can share too will be helpful. Thank you in advance!



    Also, as someone else may be following up, thank you, and a Merry Christmas to you too!


    Hi @supernovia,

    On Tumblr, the posts didn’t have galleries; I just uploaded 3-4 images per post, then added some brief text and tags.

    Here on WordPress, when I go to My Site –> Media, I see the images are all clustered together in what looks like one big gallery. The text and tags are found under My Site –> Blog Posts, but the images are not attached to the relevant posts.



    Thank you. Would you mind linking to one of the original posts on the Tumblr site, if it’s still available?


    Hi, sorry for the late reply; today was kind of busy.

    Here is a link to my latest Tumblr post:

    And the same post imported to WP:



    Thanks. We’ve asked our developers to take a look. We’ll let you know as soon as we have more info. Given the holidays it might be a few days, though.


    Ok, thanks.


    Hi, any updates?



    Hi @justsimroarks, yes actually, can you go ahead and try re-importing now?

    If that does not work we may need to have you clear the site first then re-import; let us know if you need us to do that.


    @supernovia, yes it is working now. Thank you :)
