Ok, never seen this before, and I have done this a bunch of times, never had an issue. I am working on a new site, I have been doing my development on MAMP, it's the first time with MAMP, before I had been using a WP install in what I called my "development" area in my main domain. I have the site and basic content done, at least enough so it looks like something. The problem I am having is WP Exporter and Importer. What is happening is that my image files are failing to import, I am getting the message "failed to import blank.jpg," then at the bottom, there's a message, "have fun!" Ahhhhhh... not so much! Why is this failing to import my images? Something else I am seeing in the HTML code on the images is a path http://localhost, not the URL of my new site.
So what's going on? Ideas? Am I missing something??
