I've exported one of my single installation blogs (on a subdomain) into a WordPress MS virtual domain blog. The post count of the original blog is just over 5,000, but the post count for the blog I imported the posts to is just over 3,000. Have I lost 2,000 posts or is one of the blogs miscounting? Is there a way I can check the success of the export/import process?
I imported the posts in two different ways (they've been imported twice, only show once, though, thankfully):
1, I exported the original blog posts according to categories then imported each category export file into the replacement blog; and
2, I exported the whole blog as one 8.4 Mb file which I then split (using a WXR file splitter) before importing it's split parts.
All of the imports received the success message printed at the bottom of the import screen.
Where have I gone wrong?
