I'm using the free blog at wordpress.com. I wanted to split my blog up, and put a small subset into a new url.
The export at wordpress.com is easy enough. Chose a date range, everything else at default. I get an xml.
I import into an empty site. here are the errors:
- Gallery media is doubled - 2 copies of every pic
- Gallery media does NOT keep gallery order, captions, or titles - they all get defaulted
- Featured image settings are not restored
These problems could not be solved by wordpress.com support even after 2 months. Has anyone ever used the import successfully?
