I'm trying to transfer a friend's self hosted wordpress blog to a new wordpress.com blog, to simplify for her. the import seems to work, but the images aren't imported as I expected. instead of being imported into the wordpress.com media library for the new blog, the images come over as linked images, that reside on the old site.
I can delete the posts that didn't come across correctly and re-try the import. This was just a test of a couple dozen posts from an early year. However I don't see any checkbox to "Download and import file attachments" as described in these instructions:
pleae advise how I can import the images from the posts on the old site.
thanks in advance
The blog I need help with is laurelcaseytime.wordpress.com.
