Possible Bug with Tumblr Importer (9 posts)

    I'm getting an error with the Tumblr Importer.

    Here are the steps that I took to generate the problem:

    Navigate to Tools > Import

    Click on Tumblr.

    Am getting this error:

    "An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums."

    I have tried this on two different hosts (ZippyKid & HostGator), as well as on localhost - getting the same issue on all three. Have also got a friend to check it out as well and he's getting the same issue.

    Using WordPress 3.4.2 (also tested with WP 3.4.1 - same issue)

    Not sure if it's a bug or not though so thought I'd better ask here first.

    Thanks!

    I am getting the same error and went through the same steps above.

    Any ideas?

    Same thing goin' down for me right now.

    This worked in the meantime. It spits out XML that you can put in the wordpress importer.
