Posterous import .. Help !!

  1. WordPress can't read the wordpress_export_1.xml file when I tried to import from Posterous

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

  2. Yes I have .. I have the XML file. But WordPress generates the below:

    Sorry, there has been an error.
    The file is not an XML file.

  3. That means you are trying to upload a .zip file rather than an xml file.

  4. It is the XML file ... wordpress_export_1.
    I checked and saw the many members had the same problem previously.

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

  6. Thank you so much ! :)

  7. For some reason your import file was being appended with ".txt", which is why the imports have been failing for you.

    I was able to recover and rename the file with the proper ".xml" extension and was able to import your content for you.

    I hope that helps!

  8. Thanks .. It works now !! :)
