WooThemes has released a new plugin that turns your regular ol’ WordPress blog into a tumblog. All that is required is to install the plugin and change a few lines of code in your theme’s templates. I’m using it now on this blog and found it pretty straightforward to integrate.

    Notice you’re using the Headway theme as well. Did you have to use the Woo plug-in because Headway couldn’t do what the plug-in can? I’m confused here – why have a theme then use a plug-in to make it look different?

    Hi Marty, yes I am using Headway. Headway allows me to change the layout of the site without any coding. The WooTumblog plugin provides additional functionality that isn’t part of Headway, like:

    * New post types. In addition to articles I get links, images, quotes, audio, video etc
    * When I post links, it modifies the post title to link directly to the web page instead of the single post
    * A quick post dashboard widget to make posting much quicker.

    I’ve got a lot of questions about this already so I’ll be posting a tutorial soon. Thanks for stopping by!
