I'm trying to wrap up a migration from MovableType to WordPress.com and have just noticed that all of the publish dates are offset.
For example, one post was originally published in Movable Type published April 16, 2009 at 6:07 pacific time. However when looking at the imported post in WordPress.com, the date reads Apr 16, 2009 @ 2:07.
The migration is happening by dumping the MT posts into a WordPress XML import file. I looked at the WordPress XML file to confirm that the date and time were exported correctly:
<pubDate>Thu, 16 Apr 2009 18:07:12 -0800</pubDate>
I also checked my WordPress.com Settings > General > Timezone and confirmed that it is set to UTC-8 (San Francisco time).
Any suggestions on how to debug this further?
The blog I need help with is emmacarlson.wordpress.com.
