Export incomplete? (3 posts)

    Today I upgraded from 2.0.1 to 2.7.1 and that went pretty well, no major problems that I can find.

    The whole point of doing this was to acquire the export function in WP in order to simplify the export of the blog in anticipation of a migration.

    The problem is that running export produces an incomplete XML file. For one thing, it's 17MB where the sql backup of the db is 200+ MB.

    It contains as far as I can see, no posts and it seems to be made mainly of spam comments. (Askimet has been activated at this blog forever).

    Any ideas?

    Askimet simply being activated doesn't delete the spam by default...you have to login, got to comments, click on spam link and delete them. Try that and if it helps.

    I am experiencing the same problem only I have 2 authors with a total of 920 posts and 1 author has most of the posts. In my case, my export file is only 5mb. I took a look at the export file and the posts are not even in the file. I have tried disabling all plugins, disabling the current theme and using a basic theme and still nothing.

    Any other ideas?
