Why does the Tumblr widget only ever update when you publish your site and not in real time? Thanks in advance for answers! I'm not sure if it's just me or what...

Hi Alex,

The Tumblr widget is meant to be real time and should not require you to publish your website in the Sitebuilder.

Can you please share the URL of a page on your site with the Tumblr widget and your Tumblr URL with us so we can investigate further?

Actually, we'd still like to include your details if you wish to share them, but we were able to reproduce this error on a test account as well so we have logged a bug and will update you here when we know more.

Great news! Upon further investigation, the widget is working as expected though due to cacheing there can be delays in viewing the updates. You can test this out by updating your Tumblr then either navigate to your website in an alternate browser or clear your cache and your post should appear. Please advise if this is not the case for you.
