comment why doesnt my formatting work in my wisiwig editor?
@toscho Unfortunately extra <br />s are also removed by the WordPress visual editor. And in lieu of using an apparently ancient align property, <p style="text-align: left;"></p> would be more appropriate.

In regards to what @Brady said, you can use a news sitemap to avoid having to use the unique numeric ID. More information: google.com/support/news_pub/bin/answer.py?answer=74288

comment Moving a blog from Tumblr to Wordpress
Just an FYI: You probably want to improve this question a bit. Your title is "Moving the blogs from Tumblr to Wordpress" but the first sentence of the question is "Moving the blogs from Wordpress to Tumblr".

comment Best, most easily-themed mailing/newsletter setup?
I also just switched to Mailchimp (I was using Feedburner's very basic email service previously). They offer a pretty great free version (limited to a certain number of total emails sent/month) which is more than enough for my subscriber base. If you are already using Feedburner, though, you can check out its simple email subscription features under the 'Publicize' tab.

comment Theme settings keep getting reset/erased
To add on to @Mild Fuzz's question, where are you storing the files that disappear? Are you uploading them to your server or hotlinking from somewhere else?

comment 404 error after publishing a post
What happens if you use a different theme, like the default WordPress theme "Twenty Ten" (should be included by default). I just want to narrow down whether your theme would cause this problem or if it's just something with your permalink rewriting.
