WordPress Export/Import

This is an open call to Matt and his team on how to resolve this export/import problem that many users are facing as indicated in this thread.

I’ve tried to export my blog and import it to my own install many times over the last few months, trying any method I can find in the forums to no success.

I’ve tried multiple servers in multiple data centers with multiple host OS’s and PHP installs.

I’m led to believe that the export from wordpress.com to import in a wordpress.org installation just does not work.

Please prove me wrong.

  1. I recently went through this same thing. Bet I can help – thanks to some friends, I’ve learned the “tricks”.

    Tell me what errors you get – I bet they are font-based (WTF is a font doing screwing up an import!?!?).

    But even if they aren’t font-based, I bet I’ve run into the problem recently.

    Why this shit doesn’t just work is beyond me!
