Can you help? Thank you. The blog I need help with is olivermstanley.wordpress.com. March 25, 2013 at 8:45 pm #1196429 timethiefMember I tagged this thread for a Staff follow-up.

March 26, 2013 at 12:38 am #1196552 macmanxStaff It can take up to 24 hours for the import to complete. Did you receive a completion email from us? March 26, 2013 at 4:40 pm #1196586 olivermstanleyMember Yes, you confirmed the import. Thank you. I have videos on Typepad, which on my present WP plan won’t be supported I understand. Also, my blog name would be different here on WP. Would either of these two items effect the transfer? March 26, 2013 at 5:30 pm #1196590 macmanxStaff No, they shouldn’t. Do you mean that the transfer failed, even though you received the email? If so, about how long did it take for you to receive the email after the transfer started? March 26, 2013 at 6:45 pm #1196592 olivermstanleyMember Yes, the transfer failed even though I got confirmation: http://screencast.com/t/8o0EvhIsW8YJ Just a few moments, say less than 2 minutes. A small file really, just 30 posts and 3 pages. Not sure how to proceed, thanks. Oliver March 26, 2013 at 6:51 pm #1196593 macmanxStaff Ok, please try generating a new export file from TypePad, then try importing it one more time and let us know how it goes. March 26, 2013 at 7:47 pm #1196595 olivermstanleyMember Done. Confirmation of file import: http://screencast.com/t/U1UO7r0g Resulting new posts: http://screencast.com/t/AWQKr14R0 Still cannot import from Typepad:( March 26, 2013 at 11:38 pm #1196603 macmanxStaff Sorry about that! We’re looking into this. March 26, 2013 at 11:45 pm #1196604 macmanxStaff Ok, you’re all set. I tried the import myself, and it seems to have worked this time. March 27, 2013 at 12:13 am #1196605 olivermstanleyMember Oh yeah, you rocked it, didn’t you? I have posts! Thanks so much, R March 27, 2013 at 5:18 pm #1196612 macmanxStaff You’re welcome!
