Importing images from MT

  • I have a Movable Type blog with my own domain name. I decided to switch to WordPress and imported all of my old posts/comments to my new WP blog. The images all came through in the import, but how do I get them onto my WP server? Do I have to manually upload each and every one, or is there a quicker way? Right now they are all linked to my MT website, and I’d like to shut down the old MT blog.

    Thanks in advance for any advice you could provide.

  • It’s pretty much move them over. There’s been some talk about automated the transfer of images but I don’t think anything’s been done on teh topic.

    Thanks, drmike. I was really hoping to avoid the manual route (I have 200+ posts, majority with at least 1 photo), but I guess that’s the way to go. Have a great weekend.

    Even if you were able to get a zip of the images from your MT site, you’d still have to relink them to their new locations.

    sorry.

    No worries. It will be time-consuming, but I am still excited about my WP blog.
