Converting Geeklog to WordPress

  • There’s someone who has a website that contains a PHP script to convert a Geeklog database to a WP database. I want to try and convert my Geeklog blog to WP. But when I go to the site, the link to the script is dead. Would anyone happen to have this file, called geeklog.php? It’s not the one linked on the site here somewhere; it’s an updated version. (I tried the older one, and it borks…)

    Thanks!

  • Geeklog to WordPress converter

    First hit on Google.

    That’s the older one that doesn’t work. There’s an updated one on another site (http://tobid.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/geeklog-importer/) and the link to the script there is dead…

    There’s always RSS. Export from Geek, import to WP.

    Huh? I want to keep links, users, etc…

    Hey,

    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!

    Thanks
    Mark
