Merging two Word Press sites (3 posts)

    For the last year I've been running two sites. One is music based, the other art. I've decided to just give in and merge the two, but I have no idea how to import one WordPress site into another. Both are on the server.

    What I want to do is take all the posts and pics from http://www.lifeinabungalo.com/etc and merge them into http://www.lifeinabungalo.com

    Is there an easy way to do this?

    No, there is no easy way. Even more - it is not simple at all!
    The problem is: in both blogs, very likely, you have posts with the same ID#, comments with the same ID# etc. Merging the two databases would cause conflicts.
    There were several similar posts/questions in the forum but I don't remember any solution. A search wouldn't hurt, though...

    If you don't mind losing the comments, you could do an RSS export from the /etc blog and an import into the other.

    From the /etc blog, go to Option -> Reading. In the Syndication section, change the "Show the most recent" field to a large number (large enough to ideally get all posts).
    Browse to that site's RSS feed and, from your browser, save it as an XML file.

    Now, go to the other blog (the one you want to import into). Log in, click on Import, then click on RSS. Point it at that XML file you just created and let it fly.
