Lesson: Importing greymatter into WP 1.5 (4 posts)

    Recently I went through this exercise, so I thought it might be helpful for others if I post about it.
    First advice: don't try it - it doesn't work. The process starts, but after a while stops and it just hangs on, hangs on... never gets done.

    Workaround. Installed Mingus 1.2.1 and the script works as a charm. Imports correctly all the posts and comments. The only thing it didn't bring over correctly: the popup images.

    After that I did the famous one click update to 1.5 and now it works perfectly.
    Hope this could be useful for other "importers"...

    Does anyone know if this has been fixed?

    Thanks for the link.

    i got a couple of errors, but i think it's because i'm missing some script files, like the authors and such. not that any of those are really imporant. looks like this is a fix.
