Also I would love to completely separate them out to a different Page altogether. Damn I wish this functionality was there in the core. I was going to install a separate instance of WordPress, I will give this a shot. Thanks for the link, Matt! Thanks for WordPress too! His is much more involved but I recently infused my blog with tumblr. I used the FeedWordPress plug in and feed my tumblr blog into my wordpress posts. I like the ease of posting to tumblr and it’s perfect for sharing links and quick snippets. I’ve been developing a tumblelog-like theme for WordPress, I think you might be interested in taking a look: Typographic (english documentation) “” yukei.net It’s probably not the best possible solution, but I just made it with what I knew (and some I didn’t) and it works 😉 fwiw, he could have done away with all that PHP hacking, and just used sandbox 😉 @Arpit – I am sure there is a plugin that can regulate certain categories from not going into your RSS.

There is one proposal I’ve been thinking for a while now that could make a nice compromise for people that want tumblrlogs mixed with their normal blog but in a separate feed. Seeing Josh’s plug-in I’m probably late in the game, as my proposal is very similar to his plug-in. I had planned on expanding wp-recent-links, which has its own separate log window and bookmarklet and keeps its own RSS feed so it supported the different tumblr types. Then I’d thought I’d make an event that creates and automatic blog post with the days tumbls if the admin desires (so there can be only one RSS for those that want one)- I set up a WP tumblelog with the Jack’s theme. I’m also using Josh’s Quick Post plugin, so I can post quickly and fluidly to the tumblelog without opening the WP backend. Kyle has a nice WP tumblelog, which he seems to have built himself. @Adam: You’re right. I didn’t even think about Sandbox. I’m working right now on porting my design over to Sandbox.
