Missing export option (3 posts)

    This has probably shown up before, but search did not seem to turn up a likely listing. I want to export the posts, links and so on from the WordPress installation running on my website host, to import to a variant on wordpress.com. My hosting service (iPower) supplies version 2.0.2 (I think that's correct). I cannot find an export function -- not under manage and not under any other dashboard item. Am I missing something, or is this a later feature? If so, is there a way to move the data from my hosted site WordPress to the rudimentary location I have established at wordpress.com?

    Hi - I just exported and imported my WordPress blog to a different server. When I was looking the other night, I missed this second post (I guess it was late), so here is what a friend figured out for me.

    1. Go to http://www.yourname.com/blog/wp-links-opml.php
    2. When you press Enter, you will get an XML file of your links.
    3. Do a Save Page As and save that page as an XML file. Call it blogroll.opml
    4. Go to the Blogroll section of WordPress and click on Import Links.
    Select the blogroll.opml file and click on the button Import OPML
    File.
    5. I just tried this with mine and it worked like a charm.

    Hope this is helpful.
