Move posts from wordpress.com-blog to a wordpress.org-blog hosted on own server?

  1. Hi.

    Right now I'm having my blog hosted at wordpress.com (arcadeberg.com) but I'm getting irritated by the restrictions of not being able to install plug-ins, themes but most of all, not being eable to embedd whatever I wish in the posts (gametrailers.com-videos for example).

    So I'm toying with the idea of installing the wordpress cms on my server instead, but here's my question: Is there anyway to back-up my posts from my wordpress.com-blog and easily import them to my own wordpress.ORG-setup, keeping my comments, formatting and most importantly, date of publishing?

    I appreciate the help.

    Thanks.

  2. Yes, if you do a search of the FAQ for "export" this is what you find:

  3. Thank you very much!

  4. You're welcom. Remember, though, your shortcodes like [youtube=URL] won't work and will have to be re-coded.
