    Tumblr Importer version 0.7
    Wordpress (stand-alone) version 3.5.1

    Got to the point in the set up of authorizing the app, but after clicking Allow on tumblr, I get a 404 error.

    Error message is: The requested URL /oauth/http://my.wp-url.com/wp-admin/admin.php?import=tumblr was not found on this server.

    yes, getting the same issue. I have the same exact error message / 404 issue. Any reasons this happens?

    The error is not in the plugin, it's on Tumblr's end. They must have recently broken it, because it was working fine before.

    Because the error is not in the plugin, there's nothing we can do to fix it. You'll have to wait for Tumblr to fix it.

    Thanks for the quick response. URL below did the trick in the end, although it didn't import the images, they're all still hosted on tumblr ...

    I found a workaround. Tumblr appears to have changed the way their OAuth API works, and didn't document it anywhere. Of course, they didn't have any serious documentation of OAuth to begin with, so I don't know why I'm surprised. :P

    Version 0.8 of the plugin appears to work for me.
