  • Don’t you have an Import option in your admin panel?

    sorry for delay

    In my admin pannel manage–>import tab list
    Movable Type and TypePad

    where can i upload the exported blog_export.xml.gz file.

    If i upload using any one of the above list i get
    <strong>All done. Have fun!</strong> but post and contents are doesn’t moved.

    And in admin area pulgin tab contains default plugins only shall i activate that..


    First you need to uncompress it (files ending in .gz are compressed).

    WinZip or 7-zip should be able to help you with that.

    What platform is based on?

    extracted xml file is 18mb but maximum upload size is 2mb..

    Any other idea to upload this large file?

    Search the forum: there have been posted several solutions for “slicing up” huge xml files…

    If you need to slice the XML file up into chunks, then it should be easy, just slice it into large chunks of complete <item>’s.
