    I’cant import my blogs from posterous; I followed all the steps and still no luck:

    “Sorry, there has been an error
    The file is not an xml file. Please see instructions for downloading and using the Posterous backup file.”

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

    Have you read this entry? http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-posterous/ You cannot upoad a zip file. It must be an xml file. Go here http://browserhappy.com and try downloading and using either Firefox 20 or Chrome 26.

    Hi there!

    I show in your log files that you’ve been using the WordPress importer, not the Posterous importer. Can you try to upload your XML file again on this page?

    Please note it may take up to an hour for the import to successfully complete.

    Let me know if you still have trouble and I’ll be happy to take a closer look.

    I’m using the Posterous importer and my file has exactly the same name as in the “instructions’. I even checked with my IT and he confirmed it is xml file.

    I’m not sure why you still are having problems importing this file, but I decided to take your previously uploaded file and import it on my end.

    The import may take up to an hour to complete and I’ll respond to this thread once it has finished.

    I hope that helps!
