WORDPRESS ATE MY BLOG! A conversion from Live Experience

  • Author

    I converted yesterday from Live (I should have waited!). It would appear that during the conversion, it has messed up all dates on my blog entries – all 3 years of them, so they all appear as 1999. Now on my blog, two things happen:

    1. When you are not logged in, you cannot see my blog posts. Ony a few show up.
    2. When I log in, all of my blog posts are visible but with the wrong dates (And – it is kind of irrelivant – AS NO ONE ELSE CAN SEE THE POST!)

    What I have tried:

    1. Tried to simply update the post. Nope, will not show up.
    2. Tried to edit the date on the latest post, nope. Will not show up unless I am logged in.

    WHAT THE HECK? I have emailed the tech support team. The latest response was ‘looks fine to me’. Goodness. I SHOULD HAVE WAITED!

    Any help would be appreciated. Wasted an hour trolling through the options and everything is turned on as ‘public’. I would like to get my old posts back.

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


    Here is the even weirder thing – when I go into the dashboard – it shows that I have 700 entries. BUT NONE OF THEM ARE SHOWING UP!



    Did you report the bad timestamps to us when you contacted Support? My apologies for this not being taken care of right away.

    I’m going to empty your site and run the importer again; when this happens, the posts should migrate just fine. Give me just a few to take a look at it. I should have it done within the hour.



    The import is running again now and the timestamps look good. It should complete in the few minutes.

    Please let me know if any of your posts are out of sorts and let us know if there’s anything we can do to assist you with your transition to WordPress.com.


    Thanks Markel, greatly appreciated!
