I have the XML file. But WordPress generates the below: Sorry, there has been an error. The file is not an XML file. March 22, 2013 at 4:08 pm #1192827 timethiefMember That means you are trying to upload a .zip file rather than an xml file. March 22, 2013 at 4:15 pm #1192830 ajaxwuiMember It is the XML file … wordpress_export_1. I checked and saw the many members had the same problem previously.

I was able to recover and rename the file with the proper “.xml” extension and was able to import your content for you. I hope that helps! March 23, 2013 at 3:20 am #1192983 ajaxwuiMember Thanks .. It works now !! :) Author Posts The topic ‘Posterous import .. Help !!’ is closed to new replies.
