Support » Fixing WordPress » Importing issues

  • Hi there,

    I imported entries into my new WordPress blog from a couple different sources, Moveable Type and Blogger. The MT import went very smoothly, but the Blogger import caused me a lot of problems. Many of my entries did not have titles because they were from prior to Blogger including titles in their posting functionality. When the entries imported, they all came over with numbers for titles. I was going to go through and add titles to everything and assign categories, but as I got into it I realized that there were a lot of duplicate entries that were imported from both Blogger and Moveable Type, sometimes as many as 4 or 6 of the same entry. There are also a lot of entries from my Blogger blog that I would like to make private, but after seeing that there were so many duplicates, no titles and no categories, it just seemed like too arduous of a task to complete.

    After getting very frustrated, I decided I’d rather just delete everything and start over. Is there an easy, step by step way to do this without losing any of the other data in my installation (themes, plugins, custom pages, etc.)? I haven’t been able to find anything really concrete on this type of issue.

    Please help! Thanks.
