[resolved] import-mt.php and unicode? (3 posts)

    yep, i did my searches. i promise i would not start a thrad unless i was absolutely desperate! and i am!

    i'm merging two blogs, and decided on using the MTexport plugin, and the import-mt.php files to get around any nasty 'database massaging'.

    the export plugin works fine- and spits out all my posts. i also did an import into another WP blog OK. ... BUT it mangled all my japanese to ?????? marks. i assume this is because i saved as plain text. (i was able to see the japanese text fine in the exported info).

    so i tried another export, and saved the new txt file as Unicode. and tried it on yet another blog. no joy!

    the import-mt.php does not seem to recognize the posts. it does not offer me to rename the author.

    can it not read a Unicode file?

    or is there something i am overlooking?

    duh, i should have saved it as UTF-8, and all is fine.

    resolved!

    The text file should be imported should be saved in UTF-8.
