    Can someone explain what the choice "Template for Imported pages" on the metadata view is for? I just want to confirm that if I select the default template choice this is the template associated with the current theme that I have choosen for my website, correct?

    It's the page template you'd normally choose from a dropdown on the edit page screen. It applies to all imported pages.

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am failing to import my old html static site to wp using this HTML import 2 plugin. The template is blank on the imported pages but I specifically set it in the plugin setup to use "default template". Also no content is being copied. I used the dreamweaver Template Region - "Body_Text_Region" (I'm not sure if I need to include the quotes or not - I tried both ways with the same undesirable results).

    Old site link to index
    New wp root location for the same page Here

    What might you think is happening?

    Thanks!

    Wow, lots of nested tables there. That region should work (you don't need the quotes). You could also try td colspan="2".

    Thanks for the input. I couldn't figure it out using the dreamweaver template region as to why it would import so I used an html div tag and it worked out perfectly.
