    import from typepad

    I cannot see my content I imported from the Typepad file I exported to my desktop.

    Can you help?

    Thank you.

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

    It can take up to 24 hours for the import to complete.

    Did you receive a completion email from us?

    #1196586

    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?

    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?

    Yes, the transfer failed even though I got confirmation:

    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.

    Ok, please try generating a new export file from TypePad, then try importing it one more time and let us know how it goes.

    Ok, you’re all set. I tried the import myself, and it seems to have worked this time.

    Thanks so much,
