[Resolved] [Plugin: Posterous Importer] Fixed the plugin
I fixed the plugin by adding a couple of sleep commands before all posterous.com/api calls.
To whom I can send the patch?
You can send it to me Nicolas;-)
Can you paste the link to patch here so that others can benefit from it?
PLEASE post it here, or post the instructions on how to add the sleep commands in manually here, or something … this is driving me absolutley round the freaking bend!
I posted the fixed plugin here
It doesn’t seem to be doing anything Nicolas. I just see a daisy wheel next to the ‘submit’ button but when I enter my password, nothing happens – except the daisy wheel keeps animating.
It depends on the size of blog you have. Mine took around 5 minutes to import. It’s not a file import, it’s an API import, so it may take a couple of minutes.
Ah ok. But I’m not sure it’s even started yet because the daisy wheel showed up before I even entered the password. Will my password be saved from the previous attempt to use the (broken) Posterous Importer? There’s no status showing so I’m not sure if it’s actually going.
I’m in the same boat as jasey12345. Doesn’t do anything for me either. :/
Confirmed. It does not work at all. Better option is to create a blog at wordpress.com, import from posterous using its importer(works beautifully), export from there and import to your new wp blog.
A new version of the importer has just landed that should help some with the 403 response errors that the sleep command helps fix. There’s also better handling of some types of media (audio/video) that wasn’t previously imported.
thanks for the heads up dllh. at least this plugin actually imports all the posts, and very quickly too. BUT BUT BUT it fails and returns errors when it gets to the attachment importing stage, and you can see that posterous is returning an error to the plugin’s requests to import the attachments, which means that all the photos are still sitting on posterous, which is useless.
wordpress, what do we do now?
What kinds of attachments are failing for you? My test sites import images without issue. It’s entirely possible that there are some cases the importer doesn’t handle. Can you post a screen shot of what you’re seeing, and either some sample markup surrounding one of the failing images on a post that’s failing, or a link to a sample post?
all attachments are failing, with the error:
Remote file error: Remote file returned error response 0

have a look at the posts on jasonelk.com. please let me know once you’re done, because i’m going to have to reactive the .htaccess file to point at jasonelk.posterous.com after that, until this is finally resolved.
