Images in some post aren't downloaded (3 posts)

    I'm trying to import my tumblr blog:
    Most of the post are single image posts and a few text posts.

    into my wordpress site:

    About 2/3 of the posts are properly imported. However I obtain many of them without images where they should have one.
    You can see here those image posts properly imported:

    and here the text posts (they were properly imported) and the image posts that failed:

    I tried a few times but it always fails in the same pots.

    Any hint in what is happening and how to solve it?

    Thanks for this useful plugin!

    Something different about those images or post contents on tumblr. Without knowing what the difference is, there's not much we can do to change the plugin to handle that case.

    Tumblr is completely screwy, with no sane standards to speak of. There's honestly no easy way to cover everything weird they do. We try, but everybody seems to have a new case.

    This is the weird thing. All the images were uploaded with the same resolution and filled the same fields in the form when I upload them...
    It happens that most of the fails are in the first posts, but I can't find any difference between them... I'll tell you if I find any. Thank you!
