Hello Justin

This happens because you haven't added any posts to your Tumblr blog. If you try to add e.g. the Tumblr blog named "awesum" to your Tumblr Widget, you will see that it works and shows someone's Tumblr blog on your page. If you add content to your Tumblr blog, it should be viewed on your Yola website as well.

Let me know if it still doesn't.

Hello Justin

Using the Tumblr Widget is easy, and once set up, everything else will happen automatically, i.e. new/updated posts will be displayed on your Yola website without further action. When you sign up for a blog on Tumblr, and you will get an individual user name for your blog. Post something on your blog, enter your user name into the Tumblr Widget on Yola, and it should display your Tumblr blog and update it automatically when you update it on Tumblr.

The URL you posted above doesn't look like a typical Tumblr blog URL. Your URL should look like this:
http://yourusername.tumblr.com
Replace "yourusername" by your user name. When you enter your user name into your browser address bar, you will be able to view your blog without having to log into your Tumblr account.

If you should still struggle with this, please post your Tumblr user name here for me to check.

Hi Justin

I'm sorry, it seems I didn't use precise terminology. What you need to enter in your Tumblr Widget on Yola, is your Tumblr name (not sure if this term is 100% clear either). Looking at your Tumblr blog URL, your Tumblr name is therefore "mjs-internet-traffic". I successfully tested adding this name to a Tumblr Widget, and it displayed your blog. Please try this on your side, and let me know how it goes.
