Importing from Movable Type: No errors, but nothing is getting imported

  • I’m moving my blog from Movable Type to WordPress 2.7.1. I got all the posts exported from Movable Type as the text file and I’m using WP import tool. I went through the process of selecting authors, then hit Submit button and I’m getting ‘All done. Have fun!’ message, but none of the posts/categories/users are getting imported to my new WP blog.

    I tried debugging using plain mt-export.txt file, like:
    AUTHOR:admin
    TITLE:Privacy Policy
    STATUS:publish
    ALLOW COMMENTS:0
    CONVERT BREAKS: __default__
    ALLOW PINGS:0
    PRIMARY CATEGORY:Uncategorized
    CATEGORY:Uncategorized
    DATE:12
    BODY:123
    EXTENDED BODY:123
    EXCERPT:123
    KEYWORDS:123

    But it also doesn’t work.

    I’d appreciate any comments what I’m doing wrong or any clues which I should look into.

    Thanks!!
