    I have installed the moveable Type and TypePad Importer but nothing happens when I try to import. I just get a blank screen and nothing. I have several blogs to move from MT to WP. Everything I read on the net is for older verisions of WP. Need help!!!

    Could it be the file is too large? What does the export file from MT look like? Is it truncated?

    What I have done in the past is make my own export template in MT. Something like this: http://pastebin.com/UDAYUsPM

    You'd need to change the
    <MTEntries sort_order="descend" category="x">

    So that you export a few at a time (above is a category at a time). You can also use something like:

    <MTEntries sort_order="descend" lastn="200" offset="200">

    Download them in order, a few at a time. Check the documentation on MTEntries (http://www.movabletype.org/documentation/appendices/tags/entries.html)

    I do not think it is the file size the are very small 127kb. I can send you a copy of the file to look.
