    Does anyone have a plog1.0 to wordpress importer? I tried the rss importer but it's very limited (all posts assume today's date, comments don't get imported, etc).

    Is this available yet? There appears to be a need for it. Anyone?

    hi guys I just made this converter to import my plog db to wp. I hope you can use it too.

    It's really just for my blog and has not been tested anywhere else. and it has very limited function. So use it if you have only one user and one blog in your Plog db.

    you can download the file from http://www.52montreal.com/plog2wp.zip

    hope it helps... :D

    Hello,

    Yeah, I'm right there with the other guys. Is there anyone out there with a script for a newer version of Plog? I don't see how many other blogging softwares out there can create import scripts for wp and other various ones, but not Plog.. what the hell lol?

    I noticed about the wp-admin/import-rss.php or whatever it's called, but I don't think that works for Plog 1.0.2. I hope someone comes out with something soon. I checked at the Plogworld.net forums about this, and no one over there really made anything for it yet either. I hope there is a solution soon.

    P.S. If the person that made that import script for the older Plog version had a new link maybe we could just down grade from the newest version of Plog to the version the script was made for. But, then again..the db would have to be downgraded to, which probably wouldn't make any difference. The poster of that script should include a good link then or add the codes in here, someone could atleast tinker with it then... No offense to the poster that started this thread.. I was referring to this one here lol: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/23106 that made that script..

    Thanks Kassad, I'll try it out this weekend. The instructions look a little involved... guess that's why this post has been open for almost 9 months with no solution.

    I tried it. It worked but, I coulnt import all of it, only last 10 posts.

    I got stuck in step 3, where I had to generate xml file of all my plog posts.
    It's impossible!
    I tried to change all kind of max settings, but rss is still showing last 10 posts.

    If anyone could tell me how to generate xml of all plog post, I would be very thankful!

    Problem solved!


    Are you really sure that you want *all* of them?

    By default the RSS feeds show as many posts as you configured under "maximum number of recent posts" in your blog settings page. You can 1) raise that number a lot though it would also affect normal blog pages, or make a small change in the code. In class/action/rssaction.class.php, look for this line:

    Code:

    $amount = $blogSettings->getValue( "recent_posts_max", 15 );

    And replace it with the following:

    Code:

    $amount = -1;

    Make sure you clean the contents of your tmp/ folder before you do any try, so that there are no cached pages left.

    Finally! Something comes around when I no longer need it! I had to manually add all 200 n some posts of mine, from shitty PLOG to WordPress.

    It's ok..besides having to go through them all AGAIN, so my shitty theme validates it and yet..I still have to fix some shit...

    Anyways....fuck it. All my shit was carried over... And I'll deal with it in my "free" time. LOL!

    Everything went smoothly, but as stated, no comments were carried over. Does anyone know how to import the comments as well? I have 500+ that I'd prefer not to lose.

    I am afraid, there is no immediate cure for your problem so I suggest to carry over your comments manually.
    Simply, there is no real interest in plog to wp migration.

    I have written a pLog (Lifetype) to WordPress 2.0 importer. This was primarily for my own personal use, but I would like to share it with the community and hopefully get it bundled. Enjoy!

    So danrooke, does this still work? If so, I'm sure ALOT of ppl over at the "old plog" forum or now called (Lifetype) would LOVE to have it. =) I know I would.. because I was in dire need of it back then. =)

    spencerp

    If it does, I'll be the brave soul to post about it at their forum, being that I have a Forum membership already.....and wouldn't be much loss because I ditched them anyways for WP. LOL!

    I have just completed the code today, and run several test runs with pLog version 1.0.1 and WordPress version 2.0. I am however having a problem with the comments assigning to posts with WordPress 2.0.1. I haven't time to fully investigate it just yet.

    Hope it can be of some use to people! Feedback welcome.

    Cheers Spencer, I hope so!

    I have looked at the problem I reported further. It should not cause any problems for people following the prompts, only when the import posts step is missed out (like I did when testing) will the problem occur.

    I am aware that the posts import can be quite slow. I'd appreciate feedback on the speed of the imports of posts from people who have used this importer, please provide the number of posts imported and the time taken.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    danrooke- thank you so much for this! It worked incredibly well... no problems converting from Plog 1.0.0, to WordPress 2.0.1

    - Backed up plog database (2 mins)
    - Moved all old plog files to new directory (1 min)
    - Installed WordPress 2.0.1 using new database (6 mins)
    - Downloaded/Uploaded plog importer (1 min)
    - Imported Categories (1 sec)
    - Imported Users (1 sec)
    - Imported Posts (58 mins)
    - Imported Comments (1 sec)

    The entire process took a little over an hour, but I was able to monitor the progress of the posts being added on my new page. I'm very happy that I held out for this importer. Thanks again!!

    No worries, glad you found it useful!

    Thanks for the feedback, it shows that there is definately some optimisation to be done under the posts import - although I did spend some time on this when writing the importer.

    Enjoy your new WordPress blog!

    I have just switched from plog to wordpress. The plog2wp-importer did not work well for me, it did not import all articles. So I used the rss import.

    There is still no way to import a.e. graphics and images uploaded to plog so I wrote a little php-script to make things a little bit easier with this issue. This is not a plugin and it is not an automatic importer at all, but it lowers the amount of work needed to get the resources over to wordpress significantly.
