Migrating content from Tumblr to WordPress is a lot easier since the importing plugin was developed, but many users are still having a hard time switching over. Most of the problems arise when moving from a custom Tumblr domain to WordPress.
The solution to this problem isn’t readily apparent, but is quite simple.
If you have a Tumblr blog on a custom domain (example, www.yourdomain.com), you have to uncheck the custom domain feature in your Tumblr admin section before migrating your content to WordPress.
After you uncheck this option, your Tumblr blog address will revert back to the original URL (example, http://yourblog.tumblr.com) and will now be able to be imported into your new WordPress blog.
