EXPORT > custom taxonomy not being exported (2 posts)

    Hey there

    So I have a new custom post type, with custom taxonomy (aka custom categories)
    I poped in a few posts, then hit EXPORT (to get a base XML file to build an importer)

    I noticed if you export a blog post from a normal category each "item" has a category:
    <category><![CDATA[Uncategorized]]></category>

    However exporting custom "items", with the custom taxonomy is exported in the channel there is no linking of the ITEM to their specific taxonomy.

    Is there a way to add this into the exporter? Both my register_post_type() and register_taxonomy() include the line 'can_export' => true, but doesn't seem to help (at least not for what I need)

    I did an import of 150 "items" ... everything works, all custom data etc, except I had no way to set the relationship between the "item" and the "custom - term_taxonomy"

    Anyone else notice this?
    It makes it impossible to export all my custom posts & import them back into the right custom taxonomy

    Or .. am I really missing something here?
    Any help MUCH appreciated
