Then email with subject “[WordPress.com] Import Finished” comes, but noone post was imported, why? The blog I need help with is mixeme.wordpress.com.

March 8, 2013 at 8:08 pm #1176852 timethiefMember Not to worry as Staff will help you when they can. March 8, 2013 at 9:09 pm #1176870 macmanxStaff The provided import file was about 90% invalid characters. I recommend getting a new backup file from Posterous. Do not open the .xml file or attempt to alter it in any text editor. If the import still fails, you’ll need to contact Posterous about this. March 9, 2013 at 7:19 am #1177073 mixemeMember What do you mean under “invalid characters”? What is this? March 11, 2013 at 7:26 am #1177120 macmanxStaff Seemingly random international characters. Did you get a fresh backup from Posterous? March 11, 2013 at 8:41 am #1177124 mixemeMember Yes. I’ve got it again and the same result. I’ve already moved posts manually. You service didn’t help me. March 11, 2013 at 4:29 pm #1177153 macmanxStaff It looks like the export file from Posterous was still flawed. I’d recommend contacting them, but at least you have everything moved over now anyway.
