    I'm trying to move my old Movable Type blog to a WordPress installation. I am generating the import file myself, since the old database is borked. The old trackbacks are getting imported as comments.

    My test import file looks like this:

    <p>your download here link on shrpshr.html gives 404.  Looks like there's an extra "static/" in there.</p>
    
    <p>Putting that in a plugin is a hoot.  good job.</p>

    The author, Bryant of Population:One, wrote this after a troll posted on a friends blog one too many times.

    The import screen claims that it's imported with 2 comments and 1 ping, but the ping doesn't show up as a ping when I filter on pings in the comment admin screen.

    ... now, admittedly, this makes almost no practical difference in my life; I don't display comments and pings differently or anything. But I hate losing metadata, even something as trivial as this.

    Any ideas?
