In the docs it says use WP "export" and b2evo "import". I have the export from WP. The only import I can find offers regions, sub-regions and cities.

My poor old editor has worked very hard for well over a year to build the Hereticus Economicus blog and isn't at all happy about me moving it. I really am fed up to the back teeth with administering WP but I can't stand seeing my editor in so much pain.

Please, somebody, tell me it's still possible to import a WP blog without individually picking out and pasting them from the mysqldump I took as a precaution?

That will make both my editor and me very happy. At least for now. :-)

Incidentally, the last forum query on this topic was a couple of years ago when the import tag did, by the look of it, really import an exported WP blog.

Hmmm. That went well. See error-screen.pdf and scroll down to see the errors.

Another piece (screenshot):

The screenshot is useful, the PDF is useless (if it's a different error, please screenshot it).

About the screenshot:

  • look into your XML file if it has a blank line or something like that before the content starts.
  • if you want, you can send it to me through private message and we'll investigate

Yes please. I've just looked through it briefly and can't see anything wrong. There are blank lines between paragraphs in individual posts but they should be there. I can't see any way within the PM system to attach the XML file so I've zipped it - it was 2.8MB, about a year of blog posts - and uploaded it here.

@dominame I downloaded the file and removed it from your post to avoid it being picked up by some bots that will repost the contents on various internet websites.

I do see there is a blank line before <?xml . You should remove it.

I cannot do more checks right now ( 2 a.m. here )
