importing xml file - no entries

  1. Hi -

    I just tried to import old posts from a Movable Type blog @ with an xml file. It said it was successful and I got the Have Fun message, but nothing shows up on the wordpress blog. How do I fix this?


    The blog I need help with is

  2. Movable Type blog @

    This is the support forum where we provide support only to free hosted bloggers. Sears cannot help with Walmart customer problems and we are in an analogous position. We cannot help you. Your web host Support Staff at can.

  3. The issue is clearly with importing this file on my own computer to my new WORDPRESS blog. I assume there's support for people switching to wordpress...

  4. Please post the complete clickable URL for the blog to which you refer starting with http:// as what's linked to your username now is misleading and confusing the issue.

    In the meanwhile I'll do some forum and support documentation searches for you.

  5. This is the blog I am trying to import my xml file to:

  6. Okay. They reason you have a 404 on the front page is because you deleted the "Hello" or placeholder post. You need Staff intervention

    Also we always require a link to the blog in question when you post to this forum. There are two choices (1) post it every time you post to this forum (2) link your username to the blog.

    Here’s how to link your username to your blog in your blog Dashboard –> Users –> Your Profile. Then scroll down to where it says ‘Website‘ and fill in the address of your blog and then click ‘Update Profile‘.

    Once you’re done click “Update Profile”. Voila! Now every time you sign into the forum we can all click on your username and your blog will be linked to it. And every time you leave a comment on a blog your username can be likewise clicked and your blog can be instantly located.

    Note that there is a complete record of every post that you make to the forum on your forum profile page. Also note that when you mark a forum threads as “favorites” that you will find them listed on the forum profile page too. And everyone in the forum can access your forum profile by simply clicking on “Member” next to your username.

  8. Thanks for this. I didn't realize my username wasn't linked to the blog.
