[Plugin: Import HTML Pages] What about .html page images? Tables? CSS? (3 posts)

    Frankly, if there were no way to import HTML pages into WordPress, I wouldn't give it the time of day.

    However, I find it disturbing there is only one plugin, and apparently a problematic one at that, for accomplishing this.

    Does it preserve original formatting, or do you have to go back in and tweak every page individually? What about images? complex tables? CSS? Does all that get passed into the WP system?

    Or, what is the "state of the plugin" for this plugin?

    The plugin reads the contents of the HTML files as XML. It locates the portion of the file you specify in the settings, using either a specific tag or a Dreamweaver template region, and it copies that tag's contents verbatim. Tables within that tag would be fine. The site's CSS files would not be copied; you'd need to create a custom WordPress theme to match your site's design.

    This plugin could potentially save me a huge amount of time.

    How can I make this plugin import more than just one tag? At this point the plugin imports the first tag defined, but then stops there. I need to have it import several posts from one .html file (xml data), possibly identifying the next tag as a new post.

    Any ideas anyone?
