[resolved] Import List of URLs as Pages? (2 posts)

    Hi Stephanie,

    1) Can the plugin import a simple list of URLs (and nothing more) as 'pages'?

    2) If yes to the above, can I somehow structure the list of URLs into parent and child pages (3-5 levels deep) so that the hierarchy will be retained upon import?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    No, it needs to have the actual files, and they need to be copied to the same server as the WordPress installation.

    It would be technically possible to have the importer crawl URLs, but I've resisted building that feature because I don't want to enable content thieves. If you are importing your own site, you should have access to the files. :) If for some reason you don't (lost password, whatever) there are tools like SiteSucker that will let you download copies.

    The importer does preserve the directory hierarchy (as long as you import your files as pages, not posts).
