export yahoo360 blog/ import to WP (5 posts)

    Does anyone know if there is a way to export all posts from a yahoo360 blog and/or import same to a WP 2.0.2 install? (btw, the install is >not yahoo hosted)

    The short answer would seem to be to import the blog as an rss feed but dont know how to aggregate all the posts, if I open the feed in a browser/reader it only shows the last 10 or so posts and I am not finding any settings like blogger that let you control these settings. I just searched the WP support forum archives and couldnt find much in the way of relevance to this endeavor either.

    I am still looking on google and yahoo web service dev area but am not finding much; wonder if anyone has already been down this road?

    thx

    WP has an RSS Import function (see "Import" when logged on as admin).

    So, get your RSS feed from the old blog, save it to a file and feed it in to WP via the importer. This won't catch comments, but it'll get the articles.

    11 months later...

    The closest I ever figured out to do was take all my posts in yahoo 360 (you *can* manually scroll thru all the posts and grab permanent links to each even tho you cant generate an xml feed of all posts) and publish them as links in the first post of my new blog.

    Latest post on the old yahoo 360 blog tells visitors the site is deprecated and has moved and gives new new url.

    Not perfect but does actually kinda sorta solve the seo problem of duplicate content on both sites which you could have with a Blogger/WP migration. Dealing with with another site here are some links I found useful in this regard:
