Tumblr support for "post type"? (6 posts)

    One more huge wish-list item for me with NextScripts (and which Tumblrize used to be able to do) would be to offer the opportunity to select which post type that the WordPress post should be sent to Tumblr as. The default (and only) option now is as a text post, but ideally, we'd also have the opportunity to select "Audio," "Video," "Photo," etc.

    Any chance this is will be an option in an upcoming release?

    What version do you have? Please update to the latest one.

    Plugin does support selection between "Text" post and "Photo" post for quite some time.

    I have the latest version, and yes, I do see that it offers "Image post" -- so my inclusion of "photo" in the example above was incorrect.

    But for my blog, what I most need is a similar "audio post," so that I can utilize my Tumblr theme's audio player. If it posts as a text post, I don't have that option.

    Audio post requires the link to audio file.

    What do have in the WordPress blogpost? Just link to MP3 file or you are using some plugins to insert audio?

    For my "regular" blog, I just use a WP audio plugin that doesn't require a direct upload into the post (it needs specific tags). To get that into my Tumblr blog as a new audio post, I can always just start a new audio post in Tumblr and then copy and paste the text from WP, etc.

    However, for all of my older posts not yet synced with Tumblr, I want to get them into Tumblr as audio posts with the original post date so that I can utilize my Tumblr theme's audio player. I was able to do that with the Tumblrize plugin by uploading the relevant audio file into a previous post (to get the link which then allowed me to select "audio post" in Tumblrize), and then I would "Update" the WP post, resulting in an audio post in Tumblr with the original date.

    If you followed that, I'm just hoping that NextScript might be able to allow me to do the same. Including an audio link in a Tumblr text post just doesn't look as nice (http://reselect.tumblr.com/post/31349261845/the-corin-tucker-band-doubt) as one that comes through as an audio post (http://reselect.tumblr.com/post/30507560415/to-say-that-chuck-berry-invented-rock-n-roll-is), if you see what I mean.

    Any updates on this functionality? I'd still love to be able to select "audio post" for Tumblr in the NextScripts interface...
