I'm in a similar situation. I have an old Geeklog setup I want to convert to WordPress 2.9*. I've looked at the conversion scripts discussed here but as is noted the latest version is not found.
So, I try the RSS feed, it almost works. I look at the RSS file and the entire posts are present in the feed and then I run it through the import RSS tool. I look at the results and the resultant post is present but only 40 words or so of the original post (out of 350 or so) are present. So far, I have not been able to discern a pattern on this.
Anyone else experience something similar? Any thoughts or ideas?
I am thinking I may have to write my own import functionality. I will probably only look at pulling in users, comments, stores as I'm working on a complete site reorganization.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year to you all!
