    I follow the instructions given and downloaded five xml files from xanga, but wordpress doesn’t accept this, shown that the files are not xml format, but actually they are. Thanks.

    I have the same problem when I tried doing it from work and the laptop. But from my home pc they work… same files, yet from other computers it says it doesn’t recognize the xml file, right?? not sure if its a browser, Os, or website issue.. but its not the xanga files..

    See here for instructions on how to do a Xanga import http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-xanga/

    Note that you must open the .zip export folder you get from Xanga and import ALL of the files included in the .zip folder individually.

    If you continue to have trouble with your import, please try a different browser. You might also try the WordPress importer rather than the Xanga-specific importer.

    Please return to your own thread https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/been-trying-to-import-my-xanga-blogs?replies=4#post-1742219 and stop posting here because every time you do that you move the timestamp forward and it will take longer for peace6joy to get Staff help.

    @peace6joy have you been able to try timethief’s suggestions (to use a different browser or the WordPress importer tool rather than the Xanga-specific one), and if so, did you have any luck?

    @dizzypisces I have replied to you in your own thread.
