  • I’m happy to send anyone $50 if you can fix this problem for me.

    How about $100?

    I’m also having some difficulty importing a textpattern blog. I’m guessing the textpattern script isn’t doing any error handling because even putting in bogus information to test turns up no errors and “0 categories found” instead of content.

    I’ll post here as I debug and try to find a solution.

    Ok, I was able to get this working fairly easy, I was just using the wrong database settings. Looks like you also want to import your data into the wp database to make things work as well. Some basic DIE statements should be added to the script, but I’m guessing it hasn’t been a problem, since I’ve only seen a few mentions of this around.

    Hi, do you have a better version of the script? I am trying to import, I have the Textpattern setup in a separate database (same host) as the WordPress install. I know this is an old question but I can’t figure out what is wrong with my settings.

    I am getting the following error:

    `Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #1 is not an array in /wordpress/wp-admin/import/textpattern.php on line 734

    Warning: array_merge() [function.array-merge]: Argument #2 is not an array in /wordpress/wp-admin/import/textpattern.php on line 734
    No Categories to Import!`

    I am running the script off of Alex Brie’s site, rather than the default one. If I run the default one I get the same as you, no errors and just “0 categories found”.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    I got similar errors, what I had to do was export the textpattern database into the same database that wordpress was using, shouldn’t be a problem because you probably have wp_ and txp_ prefixes on all of the tables.


    I have tried a whole slew of Database settings and I am still getting the same “0 categories found” error. What did you finally have to use to get it to see the information?
