    I started to import my tumblr approx 24 hrs ago and is wondering is it still in the queue and do have any idea how many days it will take to upload?

    the blog I am trying to import to is: https://violetsandtealeaves.wordpress.com

    Thanks and thank you so much for helping with the influx of tumblr refugees!

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



    Hi there, I’ve tagged WordPress.com staff to help you with confirming if your import is still in the queue.

    You’ll likely receive a response within a few hours from a staff member, but in the meantime, you may wish to take a look at this thread: https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/tumblr-imports/

    If it’s reset, please bare in mind the following as advised by staff:

    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.

    Hope this gets resolved soon, and welcome to WordPress.com. :)


    Hi catalina293,

    Thanks for bearing with us :)

    I’ve double checked to confirm your import is still queued. It didn’t cancel. 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.


    Hi there,

    I’ve double checked to confirm your import is currently running. It didn’t cancel. But please do reconnect to your Tumblr account if you’ve disconnected it. And please be patient and keep your connection from Tumblr. Do not try to cancel your import.

    Thank you for your patience.



    Thank you its now processed about 2460 posts out of 9000.



    Still running on our end – it’s now at around 3900 posts, so it should be done in a few hours :)
