How to Import Tumblr Content in Your WordPress Blog

With the Tumblr import script for WordPress, it’s easy to import the content from your Tumblr account to your WordPress blog. To complete the import, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Tumblr login page.

  2. Enter your e-mail and password to log in to your Tumblr account.

    The Register Your Application page appears.

  3. Complete the Register Your Application form by filling in the following fields:

    • Application Name: Type the name of your WordPress website in the text box.

    • Application Website: Type the URL of your WordPress website in the text box.

    • Default Callback URL: Type the URL of your WordPress website in the text box.

    Seven text fields are in this form, but you only have to fill in these fields; you can leave the rest blank.

  4. Click the Register button.

    The Applications page refreshes and displays your registered app information at the top.

  5. Copy the OAuth Consumer Key and paste it into a text file on your computer.

  6. Copy the Secret Key and paste it into the same text file you placed the OAuth Consumer Key in Step 5.

  7. From your Dashboard, choose Tools→Import and click the Tumblr link.

    The Import Tumblr page on your Dashboard opens.

  8. Insert the OAuth Consumer Key in the indicated text box.

    Use the OAuth Consumer Key you saved to a text file in Step 5.

  9. Insert the Secret Key in the indicated text box.

    Use the Secret Key you saved to a text file in Step 6.

  10. Click the Connect to Tumblr button.

    The Import Tumblr page appears with a message instructing you to authorize Tumblr.

  11. Click the Authorize the Application link.

    The Authorization page on the Tumblr website asks you to authorize your WordPress site access to your Tumblr account.

  12. Click the Allow button.

    The Import Tumblr page opens in your WordPress Dashboard and displays a list of your sites from Tumblr.

  13. Click the Import This Blog button in the Action/Status section.

    The content from your Tumblr account is imported into WordPress. Depending on how much content you have on your Tumblr site, this may take several minutes to complete. The Import Tumblr page then refreshes with a message telling you that the import is complete.
