[Resolved] Too many redirects

    Hmm. I can load your Tumblr fine on my test site (running WP 3.2.1). Have you tried deleting the plugin and reinstaling it?

    I re-installed it, but that didn’t do the trick. The weird thing is that I can embed other tumblr sites, but not my own. Could it be the fact that my tumblr is using a subdomain of my own blog?

    Yes, I suppose that is a possibility. Why don’t you test it by trying to load demo.tumblr.com?

    Done. Works perfectly.

    OK, well that’s part of the problem. My guess is that this Tumblr URL setup is conflicting with something in your permalinks settings. Could you try disabling permalinks and see if the widget works?

    It seems to be ok now. I’ve disabled both the plugin and the permalinks, reactivated the plugin, and after that reinstated the permalinks. Now it’s OK.

    Thanks for the support!

    Cool. Yeah, WP permalinks is dark and mysterious territory. Thanks for keeping me updated.

    I had the same issue — “Error: too many redirects”

    It happened with two different tumblr accounts, one was mapped to a sub-domain, and the other to a full TLD.

    This happened on two separate wordpress installs, and I tried the whole shebang. Reset permalinks, recreated htaccess file, deactivated all plugins, reinstalled plugin, reinstalled wordpress… No dice.

    Widget works just fine with tumblr accounts that are still at tumblr.com, so eventually I gave up and removed the custom sub-domain.

    Same issue for me too: My tumblr and demo.tumblr.com don’t work but another tumblr of mine works well.
    The widget worked fine during about two months and now it seems broken. How can I do ?

    Did you upgrade WordPress during that time? I suspect something changed in a recent version that’s causing this issue. I’ll look into it when I get a chance.

    @gabrielroth Yes maybe I made an upgrade. :/
    Thank you for your time, your plugin is really usefull, please, help us to keep on using it.

    I used this plugin to solve my problem.

    Hi Gabriel,

    I had the same issue — “Error: too many redirects”, and I know it is because I have a custom domain name. I’ve tested demo.tumblr.com and it work, and just before change to a custom domain all worked well. Is there any way to use this plugin with a custom domain name?

    Thank you very much,

    Hi! I’m having the same problem.

    My tumblr is redirected to a subdomain and if I try to use the subdomain url I get the Error Connect Timeout problem. If I try an use the originating tumblr.com address I get too many redirects.

    demo.tumblr works.

    A fix would be amazing! Thank you 🙂
