HOW TO Embed Tumblr Blog on Self Hosted WordPress Site

Love Tumblr?

Want to incorporate your Tumblr blog into another website?

Good news, you can… and I will share with you just how easy it is.

Finally, after a week or two of searching, I have found a way to embed a tumblr blog (or any blog’s posts) in a self hosted WordPress site. Without knowing any coding.

This is my Tumblr page for my website Hopes Are High. Here is the page I embedded Tumblr on.

(Special thanks to simply Christian for finally steering me in the right direction.)

It’s actually quite simple to execute…

You will need two plug-ins. 

#1 A tumblr plugin that features a widget for your Tumblr or blog posts. An easy one to use is “Tumblr Widget” and it is the one I used initially

#2 The plug-in “Widgets on Pages

After you have both plug-ins downloaded and activated the rest is a cake walk.

* Configure your Tumblr or blog post widget how you want it by dragging it to the very last widget area on the bottom right of your screen. You may have to scroll down depending on your theme.

Here is an example using my site:

embed tumblr on wordpress

   This widget area directly above this text is where you

need to put your blog post widget.
* Save the widget changes

* Create a new page or edit the page your want Tumblr or blog posts to appear

* Type the shortcode [widgets_on_pages] and any other content you want on the page.

* Publish your page and VIOLA! Magic.

And you can also add any widget(s) you want to a page with this handy plug-in. If you didn’t notice, on Hopes Are High I also have a Quote widget displayed right before my posts. VERY EASY & adds a great amount of interactivity/engagement to your website!
