    I have searched quite a number of hours and not found an answer to this question. Can someone tell me if there is a way to import my Joomla 1.5 articles into my newly created WordPress.com blog?

    I have found a few applications or strategies for exporting a Joomla database to WordPress.org, but nothing on how to do it with WordPress.com.

    I notice that in the Admin Dashboard, there are several options for importing directly from other blog servers, but nothing about Joomla.

    I need help. Can it be done?

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

    There is no way to import from Joomla to WordPress.com. What you would have to do is to install wordpress on your personal computer and then use one of the migration wizards to import it into that installation on your computer and then you would have to export from there and import into wordpress.com.

    You will have to seek any help required for the joomla to wordpress initial conversion, and with the installation of the wordpress.org software at http://wordpress.ORG/support/ .

    Hmmm … so who brought the donuts?

    #857659

    The only place around here that has donuts is the Safeway grocery store, and they are not that good. I tried them once and that was it. I’m donutless here on the island. Not sure what the police do without donuts.

    You’re kidding – no donuts! That’s totally unacceptable. We have great local bakeries here and I love their donuts.

    Thanks Sacred P,

    I had not thought of doing it that way. I already have a functioning WAMP server on my computer. Do you know if that should work for installing the WordPress system?

    Yes, you can easily install wordpress on WAMP. I’ve not done it (I’m on Mac and use MAMP) but if it is set up and functioning you should be good to go.

    @TT, yes, the price of living in paradise. :-)

    OK. Wow. I finally found an import plugin by ePeterso2 that worked like a charm! Wonderful. I looked for a place to thank Mr ePerso2 but could find no way to do it, so please pass on my hearty gratitude.

    So, I have…
    1. Successfully installed WordPress in my WAMP host.
    2. Successfully imported my Joomla posts into my WordPress WAMP installation.

    Now what do I do to get import them into my WordPress.com account?
