I’m trying to move this site over to GoDaddy’s WordPress service under an existing domain that is in the family. I cannot get the export and then import process to work properly in that, even after going through what we believe are the proper steps, no new content displays on the new site. It is all fully documented, along with the actual XML export files here on the WordPress.org support forum. The individual replying to my posts identified this as the problem:
“The problem right now is that all of the urls in your export file point to learningtosinghissong.com – so you’re effectively creating a loop back to the new site. Go back to the old wordpress.com site and create a new export file. This should ensure that the export file now points back to learningtosinghissong.wordpress.com”
I tried that and posted the new XML file for him to review. His response was:
“Nope. All urls are still pointing to learningtosinghissong.com. At this point, I can only suggest posting on https://en.forums.wordpress.com/ and asking wordpress.com support to look into this for you. ”
That is why I am here. Can you please advise what I need to do to get this properly migrated over? Thanks so much.
