Please Make Your Posterous Import Work. Error Below

  1. Sorry, there has been an error.

    Could not read the XML file. Please make sure you are uploading a valid .xml or .xml.gz file. For more info, please see our documentation.

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

  2. Please note the yellow banner that Staff placed at the head of the forum for those who are doing Posterous imports.

  3. I already followed the process from the back-end of word-press link, which I'm assuming is the same as above. So there is another process where you are seemingly allowed to contact directly. That brings you straight to this part of the forum.

    I came across this issue elsewhere here: http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/import-from-posterous-throws-an-error-could-not-read-the-xml-file?replies=4

    Like the name by the way: ) I muttered it a few times when the import wouldn't work.

  4. RATS! I'm so sorry. You are the second blogger reporting this. That link looping back to this forum is not helpful - it's aggravating!

    I'll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting. That being said, most support Staff are currently at a meetup and monitoring these threads. They may not get to this thread before next week.

  5. Thanks, I subscribed to the thread in the thread I attached in my last response. I suspect that there will be a deluge as posterous is closing in April officially.

  6. Any reason we shouldn't subscribe to all related threads?

  7. Posting into one thread is sufficient. Bumping every Posterous thread above all the other threads of those waiting for help is not recommended.

  8. It looks like one of my colleagues was able to help everyone here in a separate thread. If not, please let me know!
