Tumblr Import More Than 24 Hours

    I know there’s a large influx of people coming over from stumble, but it’s been a few days since I’ve tried to import my blog and it has not moved at all.

    My WordPress blog is [redacted], and my Tumblr blog is [redacted].

    This is also happening to my other blog at PupLakota.Tumblr.com which is being ported over to PupLakota.WordPress.com.


    Hi puplakota,

    I’ve double checked to confirm your import is still queued. It didn’t cancel. But please do reconnect to your Tumblr account if you’ve disconnected it, as that could be preventing it from starting.

    We’re processing quite a few imports from Tumblr at the moment, which is causing a backlog of imports in our system. While it may look like your import failed, it’s just in line for processing, and luckily it’s still in the queue. At this point I’m not able to give an estimate on how long it might take to catch up with the backlog, though.

    If you’re moving due to Tumblr’s recent announcement that they will no longer allow adult content on their service, please note that we also have restrictions on the type of mature content allowed on WordPress.com, and pornographic content is not allowed on our service at all.



    Sites that violate these policies may be suspended.



    Thank you for your info! I haven’t disconnected it once it started, so I’ll let it continue to do its thing. I just wanted to make sure it wasn’t missed in the mass exodus from Tumblr. Keep up the great work!!!



    Hi there,

    It appears the Tumblr import on your site has now failed, so I’ve reset the importer so you can try again.

    If it seems to take long, please be patient and don’t try cancelling the process yourself – we’re still experiencing a high volume of imports from Tumblr at the moment causing a backlog of pending imports in our system. The imports are being run in the order they are submitted, but it could be a few days before your new import is processed.
