Sorry if this ends up a repeat in the forum... i posted there and now i'm trying to register a bug on the plugin itself.. hope that's where this goes.
i'm using wordpress-importer version 0.5.2 according to the plugins page in wordpress.
I'm following the suggestions on this page and splitting a very large WXR import file into smaller pieces in order to load it into a new WordPress site.
I have turned on WP_DEBUG (ie, set to true) in wp-config.php using
define('WP_DEBUG',true); so that i can see what is happening during the import.
When i import the first file, all of my authors are correctly listed with the corresponding posts. But when i import the next file , the authors on all of the posts are set to "admin". During the import i get an error something like "not adding author XXX, already exists." which is fine, except that this seems to also block linking from that author to the posts.
Any help here? The instructions say i can do this but this seems like an author-import bug on the multiple file importing.
