RSS import problem (3 posts)

    I'd like to import my entries from my old blog via my RSS feed. I tried using import-rss.php, but it didn't work. I don't know the first thing about RSS feeds, but I suspect the problem is that my feed is not xml. It's RSS 2.0, but the extension is php, not xml. Is there some way I can import these entries?

    RSS 2.0 is xml (or rather, an xml format), and is supported by the RSS import script that comes with WordPress. The extension doesn't matter, but the steps you're taking to save your feed output does. Have you tried accessing your feed in your browser and saving that?

    is this how you import entries from an old WordPress instal on one server to a new WordPress instal ona new server?
    using the RSS feeds?

    I don't get it?
