Importing from LJ with WP 2.0 (3 posts)

    Hiya,

    I recently installed WP2.0 and am trying to import my LJ entries. I exported them to an xml file using ljArchive, however, I can't find the import script I'm supposed to use!

    Documentation here http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content#LiveJournal says that there should be a wp-admin/import-livejournal.php file, but I get a 404 when trying to access that page.

    I'm running a fresh WP 2.0 install :-/

    Any help would be appreciated :)

    Some googling led me to find:
    http://www.bhansalimail.com/wordpress_import-livejournal.php

    This let me import all my posts and comments; however, now the comment count is messed up. It shows No Comments even when there's plenty of comments :-/ How can I fix this?

    Also, is there a multi-edit option so I can set myself as author for all my imported LJ posts? I see one for comments but not for posts...

    Thanks, just getting started with WordPress here so your help is greatly appreciated :)

    drabiej, hey man, let me know when you figure it out. I'm a WP newbie, too, and I want to import my LJ into my WP as well.

    Is there any way for me to import LJ into the free WP account? http://username.wordpress.com ?
