RSS Import - Authors (3 posts)

    I successfully imported a RSS-file - it's a great feature. However, the author of all imported posts become the user I'm currently logged in as, and not the author of the original post in the RSS.

    Is it possible to import the author as well?

    Thanks for a super blogging software!

    Hi fimp,

    I am having the same issues you are. Actually, from what I can tell (using version WP 2.01), anything that gets imported gets imported as user "webmaster", and not based on who you are logged in as.

    If indeed you are seeing a situation where it imports the posts as the author you are logged in as, then I would suggest choppin the RSS file up into different files based on author. (Eg, rss_me, rss_bob, rs_jenn, etc). Tedious, yes? But if it works, it woks, eh? As I said though, I wasn't able to get this to work.

    Also, if you manage to get your RSS into another system, then you can import it from there. I was able to bring in posts from Blogger where the author was correct. But unfortunatly, Blogger does not allow a mass import.

    Go figure.
    Let me know if you have any luck. I'm still trying to figure this out as well.

    Jason
