Exporting to Wordpress with categories
« on: May 07, 2009, 11:20:59 PM »
Hello,

I'm exporting my blog from Blog to Wordpress, using a local test installation.

Well, looks like everything is exported correctly (apart from an old issue with accentuated characters), but all the posts are archived into the category 'General'

Question is: is there any way to export the posts to Wordpress keeping the right category?

Thanks in advance

You are using the built-in WordPress functionality in Blog, correct? If so, then you would need to first create the categories you use in Blog in your WordPress installation, then synchronize the categories with Blog (yes, I know you already have those categories in Blog but trust me on this one ....) and then post to WordPress via Blog :)
