Transferring blogs & photos from Multiply

  1. I have been using Multiply for several years and that site will be closing. Do you have any suggestions on how I can export my blogs and photos from Multiply to my new site on WordPress? Will you be coordinating any export/import processes with Multiply?

    Thank you kindly for your help.

  2. Hi Peter. Thanks for open this topic.
    I've been a Multiply user for some years too. This is my second time trying to rescue a blog, cause I was a Yahoo! 360 user before.
    I moved my old 360 blog and comments to WordPress some years ago, and it has been secured all this time, but much of my contacts moved together to Multiply, and so did I.
    Now this site is closing and I'm interested on migrate all my contents to my site on WordPress.
    I wonder if WordPress will offer some import processes to Multiply users, as you did with Y!360 users. That would be amazing, as thousands of Multiply users are needing a solution for their blogs, multimedia contents, and comments from their contacts.
    I'll keep an eye on this topic.

  3. Hi there,
    Is there an exporter at Multiply you can use to create an XML export file that you can import? http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/
    If not, do Multiply blogs have RSS Feeds?

    P.S.I have flagged this thread for a Staff response.

  4. I've never used Multiply but I use others all of which have the export file setting timethief mentions - (it's usually under tools) - check whether they do searching their help pages if needed to find it.

    Hope that helps

    Please do not post unless you are convinced you know a correct answer. Read this > http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/ and notice that Multiply is not included there.

    Will you also please link your wordpress.com username to your wordpress.com blog, rather than to that blogspot blog? It’s very easy to do. Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard -> Users -> Personal Settings -> then scroll down to Account Details. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Primary Blog‘ select the URL for your primary wordpress.com blog and then save changes.

    Hi, and thank you very much for your attention and quick response.
    Multiply has implemented this week some tools to generate .xml files, to export contents to Blogger and Tumblr, as you mentioned.
    (For Multiply users: the tools are in the side rail, under the avatar.)

    I've tried to import this file in Blogger first, though I'm interested in saving my blog here in WordPress, but the process fails in Blogger. I think Multiply must refine the process to generate the .xml file. We're still pending about that.
    I've seen that the .xml file has a lot of explicit references to Blogger site, so I think it won't work if I try to import the blog directly to WordPress, but maybe you can suggest something different.
    Thank's again.

    Hola y muchas gracias por tu atención y rápida respuesta.
    Multiply ha ofrecido esta semana algunas herramientas para generar ficheros .xml, para exportar los contenidos a Blogger y Tumblr, como mencionaste.
    (Para usuarios de Multiply: las herramientas están en el panel lateral, bajo el avatar.)

    He tratado primero de importar este archivo en Blogger, aunque lo que me interesa es salvar mi blog aquí en WordPress, pero el proceso falla en Blogger. Creo que Multiply deberá perfeccionar el proceso para generar el archivo. xml. Seguiremos pendientes de ello.
    He visto que el archivo. xml tiene un montón de referencias explícitas a Blogger, así que creo que no funcionará si intento importar el blog directamente en WordPress, pero quizá nos puedas sugerir otra cosa.
    Gracias de nuevo.
