Tumblr Importer
[resolved] not all images from post are imported (12 posts)

    same problem in WP 3.2.1

    when import is run, only large images from Tumblr are imported

    image is imported only if Tumblr has its 1280 size version, plugin should be updated to check also smaller versions of images if 1280 size do not exist

    Importer doesn't care about size of the images. It simply looks for the first image in the list of variously sized images that tumblr provides. This appears to always be the largest image size in the list.

    Otto, are you saying that the importer will only process and import the first image in any tumblr post?

    What does the changelog mean where it says it handles multi image posts in .3 and .4?

    Otto, can you please verify your info?

    I checked again and all posts that do not have 1280 version of photo are imported without photo.

    Thanks

    @studentrob: No, it will handle multi-image posts correctly. What I mean is that tumblr sends the URLs of several sized versions of each image in their data. The first one from the set is the largest one they have, and it's the one the plugin uses.

    @mikerCZ: You can verify it yourself, the code is open-source and anybody can look at it. If you can tell me the error, I'll fix it, but in my own testing, it works fine. I certainly didn't test it with only 1280 sized versions of images when I wrote the first couple versions of the importer.

    @Otto:
    source http://dev-images.tumblr.com/
    blog http://dev.michal.cz/

    Fixed in 0.5, for this specific case.

    @Otto This brings me to 2 other issues
    Just updated to v 0.6 And my experiment was last week (v0.4 I believe)

    I've tried to import several tumblr posts. Many didn't work out.

    (Earlier I'd had imported posts first from Tumblr into Posterous and then from Posterous into WordPres)

    I compliment you for enabling titles when importing and the fact that all media come over (if they come over ;-)

    I noticed once that in the wordpress importer you were able to make a choice which posts you would like to import, say only the posts of December. Tumblr importer doesn't seem to have that feature.

    Secondly I noticed that all imports are published immediately whereas with the Press This snippet you can make the choice of saving the clipping in draft or saving and publishing it immediately.

    I've elaborated about it here: http://www.chairblog.eu/chair-blog-tumblr/ if you like.

    You're correct. The importer here is more of a migration tool, for people looking to move off Tumblr to a more capable self-hosted WordPress blog.

    Secondly I noticed that all imports are published immediately whereas with the Press This snippet you can make the choice of saving the clipping in draft or saving and publishing it immediately.

    This is because the tool supports importing of Drafts from Tumblr as well. So if you have a draft post in tumblr, then it will be a draft on import and not published. If it offered this option, then you wouldn't be able to sort out the drafts from the published posts.

    Also, again, this is a migration tool. It's presumed that you're moving from one blog to another. If you want partial imports or to pick and choose your posts, this isn't necessarily the tool you want to use. At least, not yet. It's a work in progress, basically.

    @Otto

    Thank you for clarifying this.

    I use Tubmblr as a scrapbook. Some stuff I do post in my blog, some I don't. You are right. I better use the Press This snippet to duplicate some stuff.

    Also importing a feed from a Tumblr log via an RSS import plugin didn't do it for me.

    Final question:

    I notice several discussion lines here on the forum basically have the same questions. Would it be possible to draw them together?

    Again keep on the good work.
