    Is there a way to import excerpts and comments via RSS import in 2.5? I tried to figure out how they should be described in RSS, but did not find any information.

    Please, help!

  • Not via RSS, no. However, WordPress supports the WXR format as well, which is short for WordPress Expanded RSS. This does allow importing of that information in special fields.

    WXR is what it produces if you export a blog or import using the WordPress.com importer. Try exporting a blog with comments/excerpts and then look at the WXR file. It’s just a text file.

    Thanks – this is what I was afraid of 🙂
