Blogging Made Difficult
August 6, 2012 8:48 PM   Subscribe

I'm trying to make my tumblr blogs show up on my Squarespace website. I'm not quite sure how to ask this question, so be gentle!

I noticed that some people have their .com websites and then their tumblrs are at .com/blog or blog.domain.com. How do I set this up with Squarespace? My .com site is on Squarespace 6, which I'm still figuring out.

I don't want to import my tumblrs, I just want to have some sort of redirect or something to Tumblr itself. How do I set that up?

I'm also concerned that if I did this all of the links to my tumblr will break. Is that going to happen?

I'm reasonably proficient with website-related things but this is for some reason really frustrating me, although I'm sure there must be an easy answer I can't seem to find by googling.

I don't have the answer but I can tell you that Squarespace support is very good. They respond quickly and will work with you until your issue is resolved. Have you contacted them?

What you can do is set up a redirect. Tumblr has instructions for custom domains.

It also looks like you can do this with Squarespace, but only with the the site.com/blog form, not the blog.site.com form. The latter is called a "subdomain", which will probably help you in searches.

Tumblr apparently does some magic so that if you do switch to a custom name it doesn't break links, though it can't do that with the site.com/blog form.
