Migrating WordPress Blog to Tumblr
April 7, 2012 5:44 PM Subscribe
I have a self-hosted WordPress blog in which every post is an image (with alt-text) and a single comment. I'd like to move this material over to a Tumblr blog. The site has two years' worth of material, with about three posts per week.
I've done a Google search and it seems there are three methods for migrating WordPress content to Tumblr. All involve exporting the WordPress Blog to XML first, which I've done.

1) This PHP script.
Only thing is, it doesn't work well. I tried it on the large XML file and got only about 1/4 of the posts. When I tried it on a small sample of the XML file (3 posts) only one came up. I don't know if Tumblr is throttling it or what. Still, it's worked the best out of the three, so if I can get past the issues, it may be the solution.
2) The Blogger method. A few sites suggest going through Blogger
, but the tool for converting WordPress XML to Blogger also ignores most of the posts, when it works at all.
3) This ruby script
. It just gave me a bunch of errors, and with no ruby knowledge on me, I was stuck there.
There must be some way to do this. Anyone had success with this in the past?
