Category to Tag Converter not Working (6 posts)

    I am using development version (3.0-RC1) of WordPress.

    I am trying to convert categories into tags with the option on our dashboard: Tools>Import. However, when I try to do it I get this error message:

    ERROR: The wp-cat2tag importer is invalid or is not installed.

    When I went to see if the plugin was installed the screen indicated to me that it was.

    Any ideas?

    I'm getting the same error message. I've imported a blogger.com blog and need to convert the categories to tags. I'm also using the development version (3.0-RC1). Anyone's help to resolve this ASAP would be appreciated.

    Looks like if this is a know about issue for 3.0-RC1. There is a patch at http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/13460.

    Not sure how to apply it though. It's a *.diff file.

    Managed to apply the patch after some research, but it doesn't work. Must be for a different issue. Reverted back to original version of wp-cat2tag importer.
