We can transform any individual site tags as rss by simply going to [sites].tumblr.com/tagged/[tag]/rss and we can also see global tags result by going to tumblr.com/tagged/[tag]

However, tumblr.com/tagged/[tag]/rss isn't a valid page. Is there any API or 3rd party service to transform the global tag into RSS?

This is not currently possible from Tumblr itself, but you might be able to use a 3rd party service like that offered by FiveFilters.org to create an RSS feed from the Tumblr global tag page: http://createfeed.fivefilters.org/

  1. Enter web page URL: http://www.tumblr.com/tagged/cat/

  2. Look for links inside HTML elements whose id or class attribute contains: post_content

  3. Only keep links if link URL contains: /post/

  • It kinda works. Not as good as original Tumblr feeds where full content is available, but it did serve my purpose

  • This works and that's a great app by the way. But it doesn't let me extract the images from tumblr posts. Any ideas?
