I attempted everything suggested in the support forum to move my wife's blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org.
The transfer times out and will not finish. I've looked at the FTP to see that some of the content is being moved but little bits at a time. I've tried and tried and tried again and now it doesn't seem to be moving anything.
I paid for the Guided Transfer only to find out that its a total transfer of the old site, rather than a transfer of content and media to my new site/design. Not helpful. If I liked my old site I wouldn't be moving.
The Happiness Engineers gave me a few suggestions on making the transfer work. I broke the Export down to just "Posts" a few months at a time. That sorta worked. I was able to get all of 2012 "transfered and live on my wife's site" however the media did not truly download. It's just pulling the media from my wordpress.com site.
I've posted a thread in the support forum and received no response.
Can someone please help me come up with a workable solution?
