I’ve finalised the WP export feature, you’ll be able to find it in the menu above your personal blog.

This video will show in detail how to use it.

WP export/import Arrgghhh!!

posted by Karsten

in RedGloo

Working on this feature even more this morning.

I’ve managed to get tags to import, but they aren’t assigned to the posts. This is weird as the xml is the same as the original export files from WP, so I thought some test would be appropriate.

If I export a original WXR to an empty WP blog, it seemingly works. The tags are assigned as they shoud, so I’ll have to do more work on my export files. I suspect at this moment that WP break XML rules, we’ll see.

However the reason for this blog is that categories are imported strangely! In my export file I have a category called “test cat” with a slug/nicename test_cat. This gets imported but not used, however a category, which isn’t declared anywhere in the WXR with slug test-cat is created and assigned to the blog appropriately! This is bizarre behaviour.

I see a bug report coming up to WP…

Blog export WordPress

posted by Karsten

in RedGloo

I’ve just created a Wordpress WXR export option on RedGloo.

This should allow you to export your blog to a Wordpress server. I’ve tested it with my own, and it seems to work fine, except for links to files on RedGloo, which still are pointing to the RedGloo resource. This isn’t strange as this is normal behaviour for Wordpress exports, however IMHO an exporter really ought to export this – with links in blogposts changed to the new server.

We’ll see if I make it…

Export blogs

posted by Karsten

I’ve been investigating solutions for exporting blogs from Redgloo to elsewhere.
I’ve already added the functionlity to export your own blog posts as rss in one single rss file. This however doesn’t export comments, nor is it possible to export any access restricted material.
It seems feasible, by using rss2.php under mod/blog, to create an export facility which creates an extended Wordpress rss feed to allow easy export to Wordpress. This would allow export of comments and potentially tags as categories.
Some discussion would also be needed regarding access restricted material.
