RSS Import Size Limit (5 posts)

    I am deciding whether or not to move my personal journal to another web server and was wondering if there is a limit on the size of and RSS import that WordPress can handle. Is there anyone out there that has imported with RSS 1500+ entries? I have had trouble in the past with other RSS imports so that is why I am asking.

    Anyone had a chance to look at this or know someone who has?

    The most I have done is about 600 entries, but if your entries are long, maybe just use 250 at a time. You can easily break that feed up into many pieces: just set your rss to display 250 entries at a time from 0-250, then 251-500, and so on. You can then save all these quickly offline so that your users don't see a big difference.

    The good thing about WP's importing is that if you try to import the same entry multiple times, it will ignore that entry, so if you timeout when uploading lots of entries, you cna keep retrying.

    Thanks for the reply...I wasn't aware that you could RSS feed entries arrays....how do you do that exactly? Say entries 250-600 for example?

    One way is using OFFSET in mysql like:

    SELECT column FROM table
    LIMIT 10 OFFSET 10
