  4. Go to your Tumblrize plugin option and enter your Tumblr email and password
  5. Configure all the options

That’s it, now you can send all your wordpress posts to your Tumblr account without having to update it manually.  Do not mistake this function with importing posts from wordpress to Tumblr.

    Are you sure this plugin is still working? Its been over a month now that this plugin shows this error on every post published: “Tumblrize could access the Internet. Make sure you have a network connection, that Tumblr is online, or try again later.”

    In short.. this plugin is not working for me anymore.

    I have a blog on wordpress 3.4.2 and I would like to import my posts from wordpress to my tumblr page.
    However, the plugin you specify above is no longer avalaible.
    Do you have an alternative to offer me please?
    thank you very much !


    Mr. Tumblr Reply:

    Try the following tool. Mind you, this article is still about updating tumblr from wordpress each time you publish a post there, not a migration plugin.
