Blogging made simple for osC.

3 simple add-on’s to let you place your tumbler blog onto your site.

You have 2 blog feed options box or footer and one embed option as a footer.

The most stable is the embed footer which lets you manually insert a selected blog onto your website. You have to update this in admin each time you wish to show a new blog. Simply go to you blog click share and then embed and copy the script and insert it into the place provided in admin.

The other option is the box or footer feed. These both (only one can be turned on at any one time) let you add a selected number of blogs automatically from your tumbler account. So all you need to do is add a new blog in your tumbler account and it will automatically show on you website.

The only problem with this is not all browsers support this function. Works fine on Firefox.

You can change your options by editing the template file.


// User settings

var settings = {

userName : "jcmagpie", // Your Tumblr user name

itemsToShow : 10, // Number of Tumblr posts to retrieve

imageSize : 100, // Values can be 75, 100, 250, 400 or 500

shortPublishDate : true, // Whether the publishing date should be cut shorter

timeToWait : 2000 // Milliseconds, 1000 = 1 second


Again totally standalone with no core code change. Simply copy all files into relevant sections and go to admin and install.

Has been tested on CE BS4 and CE BS3 only. Use the right files for your site.
