Error publishing to WordPress

Hi,

I'm transfering my blog to a local Wordpress installation. I've configured everything: the server, the uploads... But when trying to publish, I get this error:

Error adding post: [postnumber] - parse error. not well formed

Change [postnumber] by the post number and multiply the error by the number of posts. Really annoying.

Any ideas?

This is the latest Blog 8 beta, right? Have you synchronized the remote server with your Blog installation? And also synchronized categories? Those are the only things I can think of offhand but if that doesn't help, send me a databackup and I'll see if I can duplicate the issue here ...

Hi,

It seems to be some kind of incompatibility issue between pagecodes and PHP versions. Error happens on a PHP5 server with UTF8 charset database on MySQL 5, both with Wordpress 2.3 and 2.6.

I'm testing it now with a PHP4 server with ISO latin1 charset database on MySQL 4, with Wordpress 2.3.3... and it's working.  :-)

There's still an issue: it just let me publish the latest entries, but not the archives. I'm going to give it another try.

I'll keep you informed.

I currently publish to the latest WordPress on a PHP5 and mySQL5 server and I don't have any issues with the publishing but it might be some sort of specific PHP or mySQL configuration issue. And I've been able to publish the archives without any issues.

Basically, when you set up a remote blog on Blog by linking the remote blog to a blog existing in Blog and then hit publish, all entries from Blog for the selected blog (the local one) should get published to the remote blog since Blog has no record of those entries being published to the remote one before. That's how it's supposed to work. (But that sentence had the word blog way too many times and so might have been really confusing :p)

Well, I've tested it with the latest WordPress on PHP5 and mySQL5, both in my local test server (Uniform Server) and on my Dreamhost hosting, and I get the same fail. Mind that my weblog is in spanish, so I'm using accentuated characters and the letter . Also, I'm using Blog since version 5 (if I remember correctly) and my current version is 8 Beta7, so there can be some kind of incompatibility after all the upgrades.

Yes, it's working that way. Then there's really no need to use the 'publish archives' feature when publishing to Wordpress.

Btw, there should be no confussion between Blog (the software) and blog (the site), but anyway that paragraph makes me recall that Monty Python sketch :-P

I'm still testing, anyway...
