Other-Ext-WP

Description

This useful WordPress (v.2.3+ & PHP 4+) plugin allows Cutenews users to transfer their Cutenews installation into WordPress, including categories, posts, and comments. It uses custom functions to read the information from Cutenews and format into WordPress compatible data. Then, the plugin uses the WordPress API functions to enter the data into the database. It places the posts into their correct categories and supports the transfer of comments, which will retain their proper information as well. This script is easy-to-use and is available under the GNU General Public License (like WordPress).

Features on Comments & Entries

When the plugin is transferring, it strips all code tags on both
entries and comments. When the comments are transferring, ONLY
the comments, it marks all comments with a link as SPAM. You will
need to go back and check for yourself. However, it is safe to say
that most of the comments will be, in fact, spam.

Installation

  1. Upload the plugin file (extwp.php) into your WordPress directory
    under /wp-content/plugins/

  2. Open your adminstration panel and go to Plugins and activate
    it by clicking Activate next to the description of Other-Ext-WP.

  3. Now you should see a link to Other-Ext-WP under your plugins
    sub-menu (next to Plugin-Editor for example). Go to Other-Ext-WP.

  4. Now just read the instructions. Options:

    A. Add Comments or Not – If you want to transfer comments
    as well. It will make the plugin take longer.

    B. Select Users – From the current WordPress users,
    which user should all the posts be authored to.

    C. Path – If the plugin can detect where Cutenews is
    it will show the path and a text box. You don’t need
    to enter anything into the text box unless the plugin
    has the wrong path or you have an alternate installation.
    If it cannot detect the path, it will present an input box
    that you need to enter the path for. Remember “../” means
    up one directory.

  5. Click transfer and the process will begin. Depending on the
    number of posts and comments feature, it may take a while. Do
    not close until you get a confirmation message.

  6. When it is complete, delete the plugin from the server.
