You can also make the connection available to all users of the site, so that when another user creates a post it will also publicize to this Tumblr connection.

Sometimes, the connection between Tumblr and Jetpack might get disconnected or need a reset. Follow these instructions to fix that:

  1. Log in to your site. Go to your dashboard -> Settings -> Sharing and click the X next to the link to the Tumblr page you wish to disconnect.
  2. Reload the page and confirm the link now says Create new Tumblr connection, but don’t click that link yet.
  3. Log in to your Tumblr account. Inside that account, click the App Settings link to go to Account > Settings > Apps.
  4. Remove the WordPress app by clicking the X in its row. (If there is no WordPress row, don’t worry, just skip this step). If you see a popup asking for confirmation, click the “Remove” button.
  5. Log back into your site. Go to your dashboard -> Settings -> Sharing and follow these steps to reconnect.
