Import into WordPress Does Not Work
I am trying to import blog posts from an XML file into WordPress (via the Site Admin screen). I receive an email confirming success however cannot see the posts and therefore assume the import has really failed.
I have exported a WordPress XML file and have appended the below code to the end of the file.
Why would this be failing?
What fields are required?
Do I need to populate publish date, IDs and URLs?
<title> My Post Title </title>
<link> My Post URL </link>
<pubDate> Sun, 01 Jan 2012 00:00:00 +0000 </pubDate>
<dc:creator> Author </dc:creator>
<guid isPermaLink=”false”> My Post WP URL </guid isPermaLink=”false”>
<description> My Post Description </description>
<content:encoded> My Post Content </content:encoded>
<excerpt:encoded> My Post Excerpt </excerpt:encoded>
<wp:post_id> 1 </wp:post_id>
<wp:post_date> 2012-01-01 00:00:00 </wp:post_date>
<wp:post_date_gmt> 2012-01-01 00:00:00 </wp:post_date_gmt>
<wp:comment_status> Open </wp:comment_status>
<wp:ping_status> Open </wp:ping_status>
<wp:post_name> My Post Title </wp:post_name>
<wp:status> inherit </wp:status>
<wp:post_parent> My Post Parent ID </wp:post_parent>
<wp:menu_order> 0 </wp:menu_order>
<wp:post_type> attachment </wp:post_type>
<wp:is_sticky> 0 </wp:is_sticky>
The blog I need help with is sparknlaunch.wordpress.com.
Hi, I’ve replied in your other thread, so I will close this one.
