Import from WordPress blogs??

  1. I saw how to import from MT and Blogger blogs, but is there a way to import from another wordpress blog? If I have a wordpress blog on wordpress.com but want to export it and import it on my own wordpress-run blog server, is there a way to do that? Or what if I have two wordpress.com blogs and would like to combine theM?
    Thanks!

  2. This comes up a LOT. Hopefully the admins are listening.

    There is no wordpress import/export script at the moment. You can export wordpress.com posts as RSS and use the RSS importer to get them onto your own blog, but you will lose any comments. To combine two blogs you would do the same thing -- pull in the posts with the RSS importer.

    If keeping the comments is important to you, you might want to wait for a better export feature, but be aware that it could take months.

  3. thanks wank!

  4. Could have sworn I had this in the FAQ. I'll add it when I get the chance.

  5. I am having a similar problem, but not exactly the same. I created my blog about a month ago, and it was running smoothly, until my parents decided to make me change the URL. I want to create a new account, import all my old posts, then delete my old account. Is there anyway to export my old wordpress blog, and then import it into my new wordpress blog?

  6. Kaplan, did you read what's up above? Wank answered your question.

  7. Not if they want to export from a wordpress.com blog into another wordpress.com blog, since we don't have RSS import enabled here. They'd have to convert the RSS into MT format, as described in this thread.
