WordPress Import … Argh!

Sorry I haven’t posted much in the last couple of days … work has been busy, life has gotten in the way, and I have been driving myself crazy trying to get my IST 110 blog into this WordPress space … its easy to pull a blogger blog into WordPress — if you don’t want to keep your comments. I found this great pointer to the Moveable Type support area on the WP Support site to take the posts out of blogger and into a Moveable Type format and then finally into WP — comments and all.

Problem is that it hasn’t worked through two frustrating days. The first time I did it, all the posts came in as separate posts as they are supposed to, but each one only had one comment that contained all the original comments for that post. Looking back, I’d prefer that now. In subsequent attempts all I get is a single post with all the comments and posts in the WP comment field. Driving me crazy. Anyone willing to help me with this?

One other quick note … read today that the Elgg system is going to go open source very soon. This is a very cool thing as I have been anxious to get a community blog site that incorporates social networking for a potential client. The idea is to give all the members of this community blog spaces and allow them to create their “friends” network. We’ll be keeping our eye on that one!

  1. Thanks for the heads up … I was able to hack together a fix to the Blogger->WP file and get all my comments in. I appreciate the pointer!
