Import from Vox (Atom 1.0)? (3 posts)

    I have a blog on Vox that I'd like to import over to my setup here on WordPress. I tried the RSS feed import options until I finally realized that Vox's feeds are Atom 1.0-based and not your regular RSS, so the import obviously wasn't going to go through.

    I searched around for options to import posts through an Atom feed and found basically nothing, and I tried a couple "Atom to RSS converters" that didn't work. Are there any existing plugins or methods for importing posts from Vox or an Atom feed? If there isn't, I'll simply have to put up with copy-pasting 68 posts, because I'm determined to port this blog over here. :)

    Thanks in advance to anybody who can offer some advice.

    I forgot to mention this: I tried using the feedwordpress plugin earlier this afternoon, and kept getting a weird error upon "successfully" adding in the Atom feed (the message says the feed's been adding, but it doesn't actually add). I'm trying said plugin again, and here's what pops up:

    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'ORDER BY link_name' at line 1]
    SELECT * FROM wp_links WHERE link_visible = 'Y' AND link_category = ORDER BY link_name

    I'm guessing the link_category is missing, but I can't seem to find this string of code in any of the feedwordpress php files. Nor is it in the RSS or import files, as far as I could tell. Has anyone seen this before? I feel like I'm so close to kicking Atom's stupid feed-y butt. :(

    Maybe this'll get reopened if I add to it.

    I am interested in importing my Vox blog into WordPress, too. For lack of a better option, I've copied and pasted some of the entries over and edited the timestamp accordingly. However, WordPress doesn't seem to note them as being posted on the date assigned; they aren't reflected that way in the calendar widget at all.

    Any other options here? It's bad enough to lose comments, but to lose sequence, too is much worse.
