Import from WP.org to WP.com fail - only categories import

  1. Hello,

    I am trying to export a single category from my old WP.org blog (www.anotherwriter.net) to a WP.com blog (www.couponsnob.net).

    I exported the category I wanted into the XML file and then imported into the new blog. I got the "success" email, but the only thing that appeared to actually import was categories. No posts or anything else...

    I tried assigning the posts to the "default" as well as the admin user and it only was a partial import both times.

    Any suggestions?

    The blog I need help with is couponsnob.net.

  2. I did some testing...

    Coincidentally, I needed to export the full WP.org site and import it to a different WP.com site (www.cricketscorner.wordpress.com). All categories. That worked just fine.

    But when I try to export only one category of posts from the old WP.org site, it fails to fully import to the new WP.com site.

    I am lost now. :)

  3. <blockquote. old WP.org blog

    Did you upgrade your WordPress.org install soo it's running on the the most recent stable version of WordPress, prior to creating the export file?
    http://wordpress.org/

  4. yep, I did that and updated plugins and such, too.

  5. I'm not clear on this. Are you attempting to create duplicate content on multiple sites?

  6. I am moving my site from my hosted version to a free version. I plan to take down the old content once I finish moving what I want/need.

  7. thanks so much!!
