    I’m having trouble bringing my blog (www.danosse.com) to wordpress.com. I can create “month to month” XML, but the images are still used the old domain.

    How do I import the images with the XML? I thought this process of downloading the images from the old host was automatic.

    I will transfer everything to danosse.wordpress.com, but I am testing the danosse2.wordpress.com.

    The blog I need help with is danosse2.wordpress.com.

    I see 182 images in your media library for danosse2.wordpress.com. Are those the images from your old site?

    If not, are your images at danosse.com currently within your media library, or did you add them through a plugin or link to them from another source?

    Is all of your other content importing okay?

    Downloaded 182 images ever seen. Just type icons SMILES. The central content, that the upload folder still displayed in posts with the url of danosse.com.

    eg http://www.danosse.com/wp-content/uploads/140119_vassoura_de_gordo_preguicoso.jpg

    I found the system to download images from the posts and not pictures wordpress system as smiles.

    My goal was to download the contents of the “upload” folder which is the core content of the posts.

    Images aren’t included in an export, but instead are attachments that are fetched from the original source and uploaded that way.

    If your goal is to import all of your content from your .org site to your .com site, I can assist you with that if you upload your .xml file to a file sharing service such as Dropbox so I can access it and perform the import for you.

    Show me the ropes! :)

    My interest is really bring all pictures (www.danosse.com) for service (wordpress.com). I imported the XML, but all photos are being called / Pulled (www.danosse.com/ …).

    I think after host or transfer any image, the url of the images starting with http://www.danosse.com, will have to be changed to (http://danosse2.wordpress.com/), correct?

    But I can not transfer all images to the service “wordpress.com”? I have to transfer to the dropbox?

    In theory, all of your images should be transferred and uploaded to your WordPress.com site as part of the import process as long as you included attachments in your original export file.

    However, if that’s not working properly for you, I am happy to step in and see if I can assist with the import.

    I would very much this helps.

    I did not changed the XML, because I thought the system would pull the image in this post, keep on the server and change the address to the new path where the system stored.

    But that is not what happened, just downloaded the old blog’s url with it when it goes down, the images will not be shown.

    If you chose to include all content, your images should import in. If not, I will need access to your export file in order to test it out on my end. If you can upload it somewhere like Dropbox, I can access a copy to test.

    Backup Full:
    [redacted]
    Backup per month in 2014, 2013 and 2012:
    [redacted]
    Now that you have learned with the secondary blog (danosse2.wordpress.com) I am sending the final version, month to month, to the definitive blog (danosse.wordpress.com). So far everything is going as before. The XML enters but the images are being pulled from the old (www.danosse.com) blog.

    Hi there,

    In looking at the dropbox files you have sent, it appears that what you are trying to use is a mySQL database dump, instead of the standard .xml

    However, It looks like you have attempted to import content using the WordPress.com importer, and from that I was able to get a copy of your export xml file.

    Aside from the images on your blog posts, are you finding any other issues here: http://danosse.wordpress.com/

    Also, I noticed that you have created a second site: http://danosse2.wordpress.com/

    Is this just to test the import process, or do you mean to have two identical blogs?

    Thanks for the additional info!

    The full SQL is. (link 1)
    The file “month” was generated by wordpress. (Link2)

    I am importing “month” to (danosse.wordpress.com) – main.
    The other blog (danosse2.wordpress.com) is for testing.

    The whole problem is that the images do not come from the “old blog” to “danosse.wordpress.com”. Can you verify this by looking at the URL within the posts with images.

    #1611858

    Thanks. We cannot accept SQL files for imports, but it looks as if you have successfully imported all content to your main site via the XML method, and just need to fix the hyperlinks to the images and other media pointing to your old site. Is that correct?

    We can fix that. Just want to confirm that you have imported everything so that we can start fixing those links.

    Doubt: if I had not the images of the posts, would like to download all of my old blog? Even without ftp access?

    Please change all that have:
    http://www.danosse.com/wp-content/uploads/

    for:
    http://danosse.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/

    Finished sending all internal content, photos and images.

    #1611905

    Great, thanks for letting me know. Since we spoke yesterday, I have noted that your media library (Media>Library) now has 1333 images. Can you confirm that these are all the images from your self-hosted WordPress site?

    If they are, we can update the permalinks in your posts to point to this set of images, and not the ones on the site you are moving away from.

    Thanks for the additional info!

    Correction: 3280 media. I confirm changing the url. I want to forget the old hosting and use all the images coming “danosse.wordpress.com”.

    Please change all that have:
    http://www.danosse.com/wp-content/uploads/

    for:
    http://danosse.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/

    We were able to find a few images that did not come over in your import (now 3,579) and re-wrote all the image links to point to the files in your library here.

    Let me know if anything is amiss, and if not, you are safe to spin down your old site and use your custom domain (http://www.danosse.com) here if you wish.

    More info on how to do that here: Add a Domain

    Thanks for the help!
    And excuse my english, I’m using google translator!

    Last doubt, the limit of monthly transfer from my new blog? Have any restrictions? If one of my story will come out in a large news portal, the image goes down?
