kind of complicated greymatter to wordpress problem (4 posts)

    I successfully uploaded my old greymatter entries to wordpress 1.2 a couple days ago. After that I updated to the latest 2.something wordpress version.

    But now I realize that I want to add entries from my very old greymatter blog. This would require importing greymatter files again, but I am no longer using the 1.2 version.

    I have read this thread:

    and I have tried using the new greymatter.4.php script listed, renaming it to greymatter.php and putting it in the imports folder. When I access the imports part of wp-admin, I get a link for the greymatter import, but when I click it, it says this:

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class gm_import in /home/elohim7/public_html/wp-admin/import/greymatter.php on line 0

    So I don't know what to do.
    Is there any way I can upload these old greymatter files to my blog without having to start all over with 1.2, doing everything again?

    You don't need to 'start all over', but I would recommend you install a 1.2 version to do the import of the extra info from greymatter. But treat it like a separate install with a separate database. After you have greymatter imported, do a n RSS import in your proper blog.

    Or you could try and fix that error.

    RSS import? The wordpress entries work for that?

    yes, wordpress can import from an rss file. I've never used it though. I believe you need to export rss to a file. well, ya know what, I'll just find the info in the codex ... http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content#Importing_from_an_RSS_feed
