    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". Apr 20, 2011 at 20:36

Try the Tumblr Importer. :)


Let me know if you have any problems with it, we're actively trying to improve it.


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 This is based from the Tumblr2WordPress project which is apparently no longer active, but is being hosted here.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 running this app because of API limits, especially if you have a large site. You might need to try a few times, I had to wait about 10 minutes before it would work for my site. If you have your own web server with PHP, you can grab the Tumblr2WordPress source code and run it yourself.

After you've exported your Tumblr blog to an XML file, you can use WordPress's built-in Import utility under Dashboard > Tools > Import in WordPress. You may need to tweak the formatting of your Tumblr XML file to get the best results, this site may be a helpful reference if you experience problems.

  • Thank you for your comment, I have checked the websites and other details. As you are aware Tumblr has Reblogging features. I have dozens of reblogged contents .. whether it is possible to export reblogged contents also ..!

  • Wordpress doesn't import reblogged feature as it is tumblr specific.

WordPress has just included a New Tumblr import tool Which makes moving Tumblr to WordPress very easy.
