Posterous importer not importing anything

    I first tried to import my posterous blog to wordpress in January but the imported did not work. A happiness engineer told me that there were still bugs with the importer and that you would keep me posted.

    I have not heard anything since then. Today I received an email telling me that lots of people were transferring to WordPress since the announcement from Posterous that they had been acquired by Twitter.

    I tried again this morning and received an “Import failed, plese contact support” email. Can you please help me with my import now?

    The blog I need help with is



    Btw. My previous support number was #1092123



    Hi there,

    We’ve actually just updated the Posterous importer today.

    I’ve reset your importer — could you try importing again at Tools -> Import -> Posterous?

    Don’t hesitate to contact us again if you need anymore help. :-)



    Wow! I just checked my dashboard and saw that my WP blog now was populated with the 832 posts from Posterous were there!

    Thanks! I can now move to WP, back to my blogging roots actually as I started out using WP back in 2003/2004 (can’t really remember).
