Import media problems
Recently I exported my wordpress.com to host it in a local server I own. I have the latest version (3.6.1) of WordPress installed there, and I imported the xml file only to find that all images that aren’t embedded into the body of a post or page don’t get transferred. Also, all my menus, some customizations and overall layout of the site aren’t present.
How can I solve this?
I’m using Nuntius.
The blog I need help with is rippleradar.wordpress.com.
This guide will step you through the process of moving your blog to a WordPress.org instance:
Make sure that you choose the option to Download & import file attachments. This option will be available after you upload the file.
Note the export will only contain posts, pages, comments, categories, and tags; customization settings, widgets and menus have to be set manually again.
I have followed that procedure before (only now do I know about the other things you have to set manually), however the Download & import file attachments doesn’t work, and it only moves some PDFs and xls files; no images whatsoever. Some images (that are embeded directly into the text of a post or page) are seen on the blog, but when I Edit the post, they are shown as a broken link. Nothing appears in the media library, as well.
