"The file is not an xml File" when importing to wordpress from xanga

  • Author

    After I’ve downloaded the zipped files and extracted them, the wordpress website will not upload them claiming that they are not “xml files”. I get this error: “The file is not an xml file. Please see instructions for downloading and using the Xanga backup file.” If I click the link, I end up back where I started with it telling me to redo what I’ve already done. I have tried downloading, extracting and importing two to three times already with no success. Please help!!

    The blog I need help with is clapifyoubelieve4572.wordpress.com.



    A zip file is not an XML file, though.



    For instructions on how to do a Xanga import, please see: http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/import-from-xanga/

    Note that you must open the .zip export folder you get from Xanga and import ALL of the files included in the .zip folder individually.

    If you continue to have trouble with your import, please try a different browser. You might also try the WordPress importer rather than the Xanga-specific importer.



    Hi Lindsay,

    Did the guide timethief mentioned help you with this Xanga import? If there’s anything more I can do to help, please let me know.
