[resolved] PLEASE RELEASE THE Yahoo 360 Importer TO NON WORDPRESS.COM BLOGGERS (3 posts)

    My dad's Yahoo 360 exported ZIP archive is 22 MB, where 21 MB of the archive is made of pictures and only 1 MB is a database text file that contains all his posts AND comments. The 360 Importer at wordpress.com only accepts 16 MB filesizes at maximum, and when I upload the ZIP archive (generated by Yahoo) it only imports the posts and comments without pictures! But it doesn't stop here: when I export using the WordPress export tool through wordpress.com, it only exports posts without comments and without pictures (even though the description for this tool claims it is supposed to export EVERYTHING including comments, posts, pictures, categories, etcetera).

    Half of my dad's blog is made up of comments, so without the comments his blog doesn't have much value and has no purpose. The picture problem can be fixed manually, but it would be nice if these were automatically included in the import.

    I host my dad's blog at menedek.com, and we don't have that stupid 16 MB upload limit. Where can I get the 360 Importer tool so that I can install it to menedek.com and import my dad's Yahoo 360 stuff with no problems? WordPress.com shouldn't be selfish and keep the tool to themselves; their restrictions and limitations are really stupid, which is why I have my own server and host my dad's WordPress blog at menedek.com (the only limit would be my money and my server hardware).

    Please release the damn import tool for Yahoo 360. Some people have their own server to host their own WordPress blog without any of the limits and restrictions wordpress.com puts on their users.
