Import blog from Posterous

  1. I've tried to upload "wordpress_export_1.xml" to move blog from Posterous. Then email with subject "[WordPress.com] Import Finished" comes, but noone post was imported, why?

    The blog I need help with is mixeme.wordpress.com.

  2. Did you follow this guide?

    I tagged this thread for a Staff follow-up. Please subscribe to it so you are notified when they respond.

  3. Yes, I have followed this instrustions. But there is no results.

  4. Not to worry as Staff will help you when they can.

  5. The provided import file was about 90% invalid characters.

    I recommend getting a new backup file from Posterous. Do not open the .xml file or attempt to alter it in any text editor.

    If the import still fails, you'll need to contact Posterous about this.

  6. What do you mean under "invalid characters"? What is this?

  7. Seemingly random international characters.

    Did you get a fresh backup from Posterous?

  8. Yes. I've got it again and the same result. I've already moved posts manually. You service didn't help me.

  9. It looks like the export file from Posterous was still flawed. I'd recommend contacting them, but at least you have everything moved over now anyway.
