    How can I import my posterous (using my own domain) to a self-hosted wordpress site?
    I’ve checked wordpress.org forums and they all seem to point to http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/posterous-importer which lets you import provided your posterous blog is using a xxx.posterous.com domain but mine is using my own domain (URL).

    Alternatively, I have run the backup and downloaded my 2GB blog from posterous. I then tried importing this into a wordpress.com blog using the wordpress_export_1.xml file. The import partially worked but some pics are missing & most videos are not working. I don’t have any comments or users to migrate – just content, pics, videos. If I can get this import working, I can then try exporting from wordpress.com and importing into wordpress.org.

    Neither approach is working so far! :(

    The blog I need help with is davpill2.wordpress.com.

    Hi there – I noticed your post over in the .org forums – so it looks like you managed to get the .org plugin working, minus some video issues, is that right? I’ll let the plugin author respond to you over there.

    Let us know if you decide to go the WordPress.com route instead and we’ll be glad to help you troubleshoot here. An example of a few posts where the images and video aren’t working will be helpful for that.

    Thanks!
