This is an old archived post from my former blog The Idea Shower. It's where I cataloged my product explorations and releases, one of which ultimately became Pocket.

Well I finally made the switch. After ignoring my old (Wordpress) blog for 2 years I decided to make the move to Tumblr.

I didn't want to lose all of my previous content but for some reason it was rather difficult to find a solid way to import my old Wordpress content into Tumblr.

The best I found was dhawalhshah's project on GitHub.

After making a few quick tweaks, I was rolling on Tumblr in no time:

/ideashower/Export-Wordpress-posts-to-Tumblr Changes:

  • Imports tags and slugs
  • Skip unpublished posts
  • Import only from specified categories
  • Outputs a php array that can be used to redirect the old site links to the new one
