    Hi I’m evaluating WordPress.com as a hosting platform for a large HTML website of over 1000 pages and I’m looking for a way to import these thousands of webpages into WordPress.com.

    I can convert the webpages into RSS or custom XML.

    Has anyone attempted this before?

    Do you know of any companies who have migrated more than 1000 HTML, XML or RSS webpages before successfully into WordPress.com.

    Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

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

    As long as you can create an XML file you should be able to use the IMport function on the Tools page of the dashboard to get this done. You will NOT be able to import the design, however. That’s just not an option on our platform.

    Thanks raincoaster. Do you know if the XML file format for wordpress is documented? I have not had success finding this documentation for the WordPress XML schema.

    Thanks in advance all.

    I can’t find the documentation either. Here’s the best info I can find from the WordPress StackExchange: http://wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/7441/download-view-schema-or-dtd-for-xml-import

    Ask over at WordPress.ORG – they are the keepers of the WordPress software.
