    I was able to migrate blog posts and comments but not images. How to migrate images from Moveable type to Word press and update the image src in the blog post to point to the migrated location.
    Blog url: http://kaushikmahendravadi.wordpress.com/

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

    Can you give me a link to a post where images were not correctly imported?

    Ok, I see the images there, and they are referencing the source from elsewhere.

    Is http://blog.mywonderfulworld.org/ the blog you imported from?

    Yes, that is the blog that I imported the posts from.

    Ok, one thing that we can try to fix this would be to try the import again, but in order to do that, we’ll need to empty the WordPress.com blog.

    Did you only have imported posts on the WordPress.com blog?

    We can do that. I am just testing out WordPress and I only have imported blog entries. We can go ahead empty the WordPress.com blog.

    Sorry about that, the process was delayed for some odd reason. It’s clear now.

    I tired importing blog posts from the same movable type export file that I used but I did not even get a response from WordPress.com saying the import ran successfully. I have tried three times already. Any suggestions? When I upload the life, i do get asked how do i want to map the authors. So, wordpress is definitely reading the file.

    It can take up to 24 hours for the import to complete and for you to receive the email confirmation.

    Judging by the time I cleared your blog, it hasn’t been 24 hours yet.

    Ok, that should definitely work. I have reset your importer again. Would you please try one more time?

    I just initiated upload.. Hopefully this is it. Do you get error logs for this, if so won’t it tell you the issue. If not, how do you ever know what went wrong.
