en WordPress.com Forums › Support Posterous account problem Author Posts May 6, 2013 at 9:43 pm #1259884 sophievdmMember I want to import my Posterous account but it doesn’t work. I’ve downloaded it normally, but I cannot open it. So I can’t sent the wordpress file, but just the whole space. And that doesn’t work! How do I fix this? The blog I need help with is sophiemeulengraaf.wordpress.com.

Per the guide at http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-posterous/ you’ll need to upload the wordpress_export_1.xml file, not the one you tried to import. Please see what Staff amightywp says in this thread https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/posterous-download-zip-folder-will-not-extract-for-import?replies=14#post-1242796 May 6, 2013 at 11:36 pm #1260082 macmanxStaff Posterous sends you a .zip file which you need to unarchive to retrieve the files inside. I’m not a Windows user myself, but I believe the ability to open .zip files should be built-in to the operating system. It is on Macs at least. Either way, we can really only help with the WordPress.com end of the import process. http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-posterous/ Author Posts The topic ‘Posterous account problem’ is closed to new replies.
