    Hi,

    I’ve been loving WordPress, and even getting the hang of it!

    I have the content brought into a webpage on my Office Live Small Business Website too (phmc.co.uk/blog.aspx), and that’s great- it always updates with latest posts and content, loved that feature, never had to touch a thing on my Office Live website.

    But now the bullies at Microsoft are making me move to their “new” Office 365. Have given up with any technical support there- between Microsoft and Melbourne IT it’s a complete nightmare.

    Does anyone know if and how I can replicate my WordPress Blogs within a webpage on Office 365?

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

    You might be able to get it to make use of the blog export in XML. There may be some editing required. I know the regular software product can import lots of stuff in XML, but I never tried a whole blog. And since 2004 I have no Windows or Mac at home at all.

    No idea, but I CAN tell you it’s a very bad idea to duplicate content. Search engines see it as spam (for good reason; it is spam) and downgrade BOTH sites severely.

    The export file here isn’t exactly an XML standard file. It is a WXR (WordPress Extended RSS) file.

    Wow thanks for the advice! Wasn’t aware of the risk of this being seen as spam, am researching this much more. Meantime, found that inserting an <iframe> in html works, but am re-thinking the strategy!

    iframes don’t create duplicate content. They just show a “view” to that content, so it doesn’t mess with the search engines.
