As others have already mentioned, this can be a long process. But it can also be relatively straightforward, and I've done this to migrate other non-WP sites to WordPress in the past. Export your site First things first, you'll need to export your site from Tumblr into a format WordPress can work with. There are a few tutorials out there on how to do ...

I just did a quick search on the Reblog concept because, admittedly, I've never used Tumblr and had no idea what you were talking about. After reading a bit about it, it started to sound very familiar ... Most blogs today allow you to add a ReTweet (Twitter), Like (Facebook), or Share This (Generic) button directly on the post. These are very ...

The Time Release plugin comes close, but has a fixed update period. The functionality is there, though, and I'd guess the portion of code that does the checking/updating could be hacked to use whatever (still-fixed) frequency you want without too much trouble. EDIT 2.16.12 Found a couple others that come much closer to Tumblr's behavior while working on ...

I'm thinking if there's no easy way, I could process a WordPress export and use the Tumblr API write method to re-create all the posts, including date and slug... the URLs are likely to end up a little different, though, so I might need to use some mod-rewrite magic until Google picks up on the 301s. Edit: in fact there seem to be two such scripts already, ...

this small code give you the first image from the post, if is inside the gallery of the post and is! the first image in the gallery of the post. $attachments = get_children( array( 'post_parent' => get_the_ID(), 'post_type' => 'attachment', 'numberposts' => 1, // show all -1 ...

I'm not really sure how Tumblr works with domains, but it seems to me you could create a physical /blog directory, which will override WordPress. Then you can make that work with Tumblr however they do it. To put the item back into the menu using wp_list_pages, try to the Page Links To plugin to create a post or page that links to /blog: ...

Disclaimer - my experience only involves moving WP around. First go over Changing The Site URL, it properly covers how WP stores and reacts to changes in URL as well as some tricks that make it easier. The bad part here is that Wordpress uses the post's full URL as it's GUID, so I'll have to hand-edit the database so that each post, page and media asset ...

Our scenario is a little different, but has some similar characteristics. We're migrating a fairly large (500+ blogs, 14 or so domains) WordPress MU installation from a hosting provider to a new, client-hosted WordPress 3.0.1 installation. Here's our overall plan: Set up the new system at the client site. Use edited hosts files on the dev team's systems to ...

Hey, you might have luck with a prior plugin I wrote (here's the code itself). It's a redirect plugin that looks at the URL coming in, checks it against the postmeta table if it's about to produce a 404, and redirect the user if a match is found. If you have the entire URI stored in the custom field for a post, it might look something like: /** * Redirect ...

The very first difference, is that tumblr is basicly an extended micro-blogging site, wordpress is a full featured blog and website. For example, wordpress can be used as a portfolio page side-by-side with a blog and a news site and something else. Of course, you're talking about wordpress.com, which has limitied capabilities compared to a standalon ...

It doesn't look like Tumblr offers a built-in export service, but you have some options through tools that use the Tumblr API. Tumblr2WP can automatically export your Tumblr posts as an XML file. This is based from the Tumblr2WordPress project which is apparently no longer active, but is being hosted here. NOTE: You may get any number of errors when ...
