    i'm making the migration from mt to wp. successfully imported my posts. BUT! none of my 'posting dates' have come across. they all show as being created on the 'day of import.'

    i imagine this topic has been dealt with but i'm not finding anything in my search.

    please point me in the right direction/topic/posts...

    thanks in advance!

    Importing From MovableType to WordPress covers step-by-step instructions with a lot of helpful links at the bottom for dealing with all of these issues.

    hmmm... i've looked all over that page. either i'm an idiot and not seeing anything pertaining to importing correct "posting dates" or it's not there.

    :(

    Maybe these might help more:

    quote from that one, from the same author who wrote the one I listed above:

    MT exports the entries with the dates set wrong. The dates do not carry AM/PM or 24 hour information. There is a Fix for the date problem at the MT support forums at http://www.movabletype.org/support/index.php?act=ST&f=8&t=40987

    I just searched for "import MT wordpress dates" in google and got a bunch, but I think these might be your best bet.
