  • I just wanted to import the xml file from another wordpress installation into this new one. but – huh? – I am not able to do that. reason: wordpress provides 0.

    whats the reason for that? I have WordPress 2.8.1 installed (or ist ist 2.8..1.4.6.7.4.3.3.4.5.8?)

    Re-upload WP files/folders via FTP. You’re missing some files.

    i actually did that. but it is still not able to show importers.

    maybe there’s a manual way? or can you say which files are missing? maybe I can get them from somewhere else

    edit: I re-upload the wp-files 2 third time, now. I don’t believe that it will change anything.

    Disable all plugins and change to default theme then import the XML file. There might be plugins which are interfering with your admin page.

    whats the url to the blog, please.

    I worked now. The German WP version is damaged. I tried the original English version and – boom – it worked. As simple as usual. Now I have to think on getting the German language into the installation without loosing half of the features 😀

    I mean “It”

    Import options not visible
    I have this ‘Tools/Import’ problem too and cannot get it resolved.

    Here’s the status:
    Everything works including all plugins including my dutch language files.
    With the exception of Import options not being visible.

    I run this as a standalone WP install on a subfolder of the parent domain WP install (i.e example.com/demo). The parent install (example.com) has no problem whatsoever.

    Having dropped the database , deleted ALL folder and files from server and re-installed a naked english installation of 2.8.4 and left plugins untouched (not active), the Import options still are not visible.

    Does someone recognize this particular and very strange problem?

    Very much appreciate a response.
