    Plugin does’t have such feature, but if you know php/wordpres you can extract this info from custom field and show it via shortcode or something like it.

    But that would have to be done for each individual post – correct? Or could that be used in a template?

    Yes, that could be done in the template.

    So I am looking at the custom fields – and the one for tumblr says the following : a:1:{i:0;a:13:{s:4:”doTR”;s:1:”1″;s:12:”apTRPostType”;s:1:”T”;s:11:”SNAPTformat”;s:7:”%TITLE%”;s:10:”SNAPformat”;s:10:”%FULLTEXT%”;s:9:”isAutoImg”;s:1:”A”;s:8:”imgToUse”;b:0;s:9:”isAutoURL”;s:1:”A”;s:8:”urlToUse”;b:0;s:11:”isPrePosted”;s:1:”1″;s:8:”isPosted”;s:1:”1″;s:4:”pgID”;d:73517101489;s:7:”postURL”;d:73517101489;s:5:”pDate”;s:19:”2014-01-16 15:45:48″;}}

    some things I can figure out – Like I should be using “postURL” but what the other stuff like s:7 and what a:1 mean – I dont know – do you have documentation on this – or can you point give me the string for getting the tumblr postURL

    thanks for your help

    You need to use : “pgID”;d:73517101489

    Just add to this ID and you will get the link to the post.

    I am so sorry, and please forgive my ignorance. I understand, html, css, php and I can program for wordpress – but I dont understand what you mean by “add to this ID and you will get the link to the post.”

    How do i do that? I created a custom field – but I dont know how to use the “pgID”;d:73517101489 as you instructed. I do see that the number 73517101489 is the actual link to the post that I am testing on – but I dont know how you got that number. Its quite unique, and I didnt give it to you.

    And if i need to make a new custom field for every single new post – thats not going to work.

    Thanks for all your help.

    $myTumblrURL = ''; // Change it to your real URL
    $pMeta = maybe_unserialize(get_post_meta($postID, 'snapTR'), true));
    $tumblrPostID = $pMeta[0]['pgID'];
    $linkToTumblrPost = myTumblrURL . "post/" . $tumblrPostID ;

    Most networks correctly return the actual URL of the post in the postURL field.
