Why did my site import with no categories and tags?

  1. Hi,

    I imported my blog from xml yesterday but none of the categories and tags are associated correctly to the posts.

    Could you please help me?

    Thank you!

  2. Hi. Can you let me know what blog you exported from? Was it another blog or a self-installed blog? If it's a self-installed export, I can lend a hand if we can work out a way to transfer the xml file to me. FYI, this is a known issue with our current importer, and we're hard at work on a fix.

  3. Hi, it's from a self installed blog. sorta works. It used to be before I changed its dns.

    I noticed it's a known issue and did my research on it. I tried tips from this blog entry but it didn't help.

    Here's my import file: [import file URL remove]

    I appreciate your quick response!

    Thank you!

  4. Working with import files on a public forum can get a bit tricky, as we don't folks to have access to all of your data like that.

    Please contact us again through and choose a private request (if the option in available to you).


  5. Can you confirm that it would be acceptable for me to empty and redo the import? My doing so will cause you to lose all content currently in that blog until I get the content from your xml file reimported, so I want to make sure I have permission to empty the blog before I do so. Thanks.

  6. Yes you have the permission to empty the blog.

    Thank you!

    For some reason, I thought I was in a private conversation with the support.

  7. I've performed the import for you, and at a glance, it looks like tags and categories are intact. Please take a look, and if you have any further issues, please follow up in a private request (please include a link to this forum thread and feel free to drop my nick into the request so that it gets routed to me). Thanks!

  8. Thank you so much! You are a life saver!

  9. I just want to give some kudos to you guys for being so supportive. I've decided to purchase the domain mapping and custom css upgrades last night. I hope I found a great long time new home for my blog (it's been around for 10 years) :)

    Thank you!

  10. Glad to hear it's working, and welcome!

  11. Awesome, and welcome to!
