    Hi there – I was able to replicate this problem on our end. I will ask our developers to take a look and try to get an export file to you. Thanks for your patience

    Hi there,

    Sorry about the trouble with your export. I’ve gone ahead and made a manual export and sent it to you via private email. Please watch out for an email from help@wordpress.com which will have the link for you to download the export file.

    Hope that helps and please let us know if there’s anything else we can do

    Thanks, however I am afraid that it is not what I want.

    The export function still does not work.
    I will also need the xml file next week.
    Perhaps I will have to export it more than one time.

    So, it is necessary that I wiil be able to use the export function.
    Could you please correct the problem ?

    Best Regards

    Unfortunately your site is too large to use the built-in export tool. Just let us know whenever you’d like a new export done, we’re glad to do it for you as needed.

    ΟΚ, I will let you know.

    Every time I import an xml file in a wordpress self-hosted installation, does it override all the previous content ?

    Importing a new XML file won’t overwrite any existing posts, but it should add new ones.

    So, I can import the xml you have already exported, and next week import the new xml file that you will export ?

    It will not result to duplicate posts ?

    Correct. The system should detect and not re-import duplicates.

    That is good !

    However, I face one more problem.
    The xml file you sent is about 13Mb
    When I tried to import it, there was a message saying that the maximum size should be 10MB !

    Best Regards

    Hi there – you may need to contact your host to have them help you increase the maximum file upload on your server.

    Is there a way to export the theme I use ( CSS and settings) , so that I will import this to the new wordpress org installation ?

    The problem is that the theme that I use, is not supported yet, so I can not find it and activate it.

    I tried to copy and paste just the CSS code, however it did not result to the same appearance of the blog.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi there – Fusion for WordPress.org is available here:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/fusion

    You’ll need to many your own adjustments, as necessary.

    Could you please send me again a manual export of the xml file ?
    It is time to migrate to wordpress.org.

    As you told me, our site is too large to use the built-in export tool, so please help me.

    Best Regards.

    If it is possible please send me only the new part of the xml file (you sent me an xml file last Friday).

    Thanks in advance

    I inserted the post and the comments “by hand”. So, we do not need the extra post.

    A final question:
    Could you please let me know how I can activate the wordpress like button, which can be found under each post ?

    http://en.support.wordpress.com/likes/

    I can’ t find it at wordpress.org.

    Thanks in advance.
