Importing Posterous blog to WordPress

  1. Hi there,
    I am trying to import our former Posterous blog to WordPress.com. Herefor I am following your guide. However I am experiencing problems with uploading and importing the WordPress.xml file (that I have downloaded form the Posterous site). When I have browsed for it and want to press the 'Upload file and import' button; it turns blank again. I can't upload!

    Can you help me on this matter?

    Thanking you in advance

    Jennemie Stoelhorst

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

    If you are not running one of the browsers and versions listed at http://browsehappy.com/ please try upgrading or switching first.

    Note: If you are using an IE9 browser in compatibility mode that makes it render as IE7 and IE7 is not supported. To disable see > http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1196-internet-explorer-compatibility-view-turn-off.html

    If you are, please do these four things:

    1. Try clearing your browser’s cache http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=32050

    2. Make sure that you have third-party cookies enabled http://en.support.wordpress.com/third-party-cookies/

    3. Try with all browser extensions or add-ons temporarily disabled.

    4. Try enabling HTTPS: http://en.support.wordpress.com/https/

    If you are not successful let us know exactly which browser (and version of it) you’re using and post any error reports you get.
