Importing from RSS (3 posts)

    I'm just setting up a WP blog and would like, if possible, to import the old posts from my old blog - which was run in Squishdot (a Zope-based thing).

    As far as I can see, that means importing comment using RSS.

    Is it possible to point the import-rss.php script at a feed hosted elsewhere?

    If not, will it work if I just copy and paste the contents of the feed into a file and point import-rss.php at that file?

    And finally - does it automatically pick up category information? at the moment the posts are marked with dc:content tags, but I can easily change it to something else - is there anything that WP would recognise and use as a category for the post?

    I don't know if it helps, but the old site is at
    http://zwikipoetry.freezope.org/stormy_petrel

    thanks for any help

    importing *content* using RSS, I mean. Sorry about that.

    It's OK, I've sorted it out.

    thanks
