May 14, 2012 at 10:23 pm #889905 macmanxStaff Which blog are you trying to export? May 15, 2012 at 3:00 pm #889922 cweleventhauthorMember http://cifwatch.com/ I’m the managing editor and am trying to create a ghost site to test a new WP theme. (Plus I typically back up the site once a month) May 15, 2012 at 6:05 pm #889925 macmanxStaff Since you have over 2,000 posts with over 61,000 comments, you’ll need to break up the export. You can use the additional export options to only export specific date ranges. May 16, 2012 at 3:11 pm #889934 cweleventhauthorMember Thanks so much for the reply. I had no idea that was the problem.
