With this Plugin you could connect your Tumblr account on your WordPress blog, so you can view the discussion of your Tumber into a post or a page of your WordPress Blog.

The reason for the construction of the Plugin was a user of our Forum, calling for help in linking the Tumblr with his WordPress blog. So rather than get in the process of explaining the complex process of linking, we create the wp-tumblr-embeder doing the same thing, easier and faster.

About Tumblr

Tumblr is a microblogging platform that allows users to post text, images, videos, links, quotes and audio to their tumblelog, a short-form blog. Users can follow other users, or choose to make their tumblelog private. The service emphasizes ease of use.

Tumblr emphasis is on customization and ease of use, with a relatively simple sign-up process. There are many forms of content that can be added to the users own tumblelog; the seven general categories for posts include Text, Photo, Quote, Link, Chat, Audio, and Video. Users follow other tumblelogs, much like on Twitter, and their updates appear in one stream on the Dashboard

Like another user in this list – my Tumblr blog is password-protected, and I am unclear as to how to configure the plugin so it works with a password-protected Tumblr. Anyone?

Trying to use this with 'Social Media Tabs'.

The tumblr feed is coming to the WordPress site – but it is not showing in in the correct place and is just running down the left of my screen a few pixels wide.

Hello all! First off thank you for this sweet pluggin It has really helped me out a ton, but I have a question about it though. Is it possible to load 2 separate tumbler blogs?

I am having an issue where it is inserting the shortcode into the page 3 times (instead of just one). Can you please post the PHP string to call this from a page template?

Great plugin. It is pulling my tumblr post in to my wordpress site, but it is posting this twice. It has messed up the header of the page. It post 10 tumblr post, then come the header for the page and the same 10 posts. I thought it might be the way the theme works but I switched tumblr themes and got the same bug. Can anybody help me?


February 19, 2012 | 04:14  | Reply

Any way to limit posts that show up, so that it's just the last 2 or 3?


September 12, 2011 | 03:51  | Reply

followed the intructions but it doesn`t work. i assume it is because my tumbler page has a password…how do I tell the pluggin my password

I know this was asked earlier but didn't see a response – is there any way to display the date for tumblr posts?

Thank you!

Hey, this plugin is awesome and very much what I was looking for, thanks so much.

However, I do have a problem. A photoset I had made on Tumblr is showing up as broken. My site appears to think the set should be on the site’s server as opposed to on Tumblr.

“The requested URL /post/9257268064/photoset_iframe/sonkitty/tumblr_lqccu9ByhP1qjuipe/400 was not found on this server…Server at http://www.animecentral.net...”

My regular photo posts are fine, just this photoset is broken.

Please help. Is there anything I can do to fix that or is that something I’d have to wait to be updated?

Another great feature would be pagination. Is there a way to do that as well? Also, I'd love to make a donation to you for coming up with this wonderful plugin.

Love the plugin. Was wondering if there is a way to do multiple Tumblr feeds. Many of our bloggers like using Tumblr on their iPhone or Android and I would ideally like to have about 7 feeds for each Blogger's landing page.

Thanks a ton, I have installed it on my WP blog… working quiet well except:
1) Not getting dates
2) it sets the page upside down ( anyhting I write before the shortcode ends up at the bottem of the page http://www.sunrisethefilm.com/tumblr/
what can I do to get all that fixed ?

Hi! I Just DL it and saw the problem detected by Ann Gulbrandsen was fixed. So I followed the instructions: type my Tumblr URL and put the tiny code in the page I created, but nothing appears on my WP page 🙁 http://devargas.com.es/blogthis-tumblr/

Any help? What am I doing wrong?

June 24, 2011 | 20:28  | Reply

Downloaded this today and there is a bug in the php-code.

When checking for the style.css file the code uses the path '/wp-tumblr/style.css'
it should be '/wp-tumblr-embeder/style.css' otherwise the style.css will never be used.

Apart from that it seems like a simple and useful plugin.

Thanks for the great plugin! How do you get rid of the number next to each tumblr post? Thank you!


June 13, 2011 | 20:58  | Reply

also, it won't let me insert the shortcode into a neat little scrollbox. is there a way to do this or not yet?


June 13, 2011 | 20:51  | Reply

Awesome, finally found a simple Tumblr-to-Wordpress integration plugin that actually works.
Thank you!

      June 21, 2011 | 01:35  | Reply

      thanks for getting back…i follow the instructions and everything goes fine until i add the short code. after i paste the short code into the page, i preview it and then all that shows up is the short code. i must be missing something!

Hello! Thank you for this plug-in. I am wondering if there is a way to set a divider between Tumblr posts? The account I am wanting to embed is picture-heavy, and it can be hard to tell when one post ends and the next begins. Thanks!

Hello! Thank you for this plug-in.

I am wondering if there is a way to put a divider between Tumblr posts? The Tumblr I am wanting to embed is picture-heavy, and it's hard to tell when one entry ends and another begins.

    June 13, 2011 | 16:11  | Reply

    you cant put a divider but you can do this in css…


      July 1, 2011 | 11:36  | Reply

      I am wondering the same thing.. I would like to get rid of the number next to each Tumblr post, and insert horizontal dividers between the posts instead. I am not super familiar with working around CSS to do this, any advice in configuring the style-sheet for doing so?

May 20, 2011 | 09:44  | Reply

Hey there!

Brilliant plugin. I love it. Two quick questions.

1. Is there a way to eliminate or change the post maximum? I'm only pulling in the ten most recent and I want to show my whole blog (preferably with pages instead of scrolling).

2. Can we change it from an ordered list to an unordered list? Is that as simple as changing the css file from .ol to .ul? (Forgive me for not being that familiar with css.)

That's all I can think of at the moment. Thanks so much for your plugin!

Best wishes,
