WP FetLife Importer

Description

The WP FetLife Importer is a WordPress plugin offering an easy way to import your FetLife Writings and Pictures to a WordPress blog. If you’re using a WordPress.com blog or want to move your FetLife content to a non-WordPress blogging platform, try the FetLife to WXR Generator instead.

FAQ

Why aren’t some of my Pictures being imported?

Most likely, it’s because you haven’t written any captions on your FetLife Pictures. You need to make sure that each of the pictures on your FetLife profile has its own (unique) caption, so WP WordPress Importer won’t think it’s already imported that picture.

Why is FetLife so awful?

Because FetLife is a corporation that doesn’t give a shit about you. I’m serious. Check out the following resources:
