WordPress import creates duplicate images

  1. this looks like a bug in WordPress import on WP.com -

    * WP.com blog A has a post with 1 attached image
    * export the blog to WordPress XML (WXR) format
    * import it to WP.com blog B, marking "download attachments"
    * you'll have under Media 2 copies of the image

    same file imports OK on self-hosted WP.org (3.0.5)

    ALSO - only image src= URL in post that has the image attached to gets updated to new URL during import, if the image is not attached to post, old URL remains (again, self-hosted 3.0.5 seems to replace image URLs in all posts during import)

    The blog I need help with is l0lice.wordpress.com.

  2. I'm sorry I can't help you with this. I'm answering so the thread appears back on the front page of the forum where another Volunteer or Staff will be able to help you.
