I am trying to import content from a customer's old site (based on WP2.7) to a new site based on (WP3.3.1).
Also, I ONLY want to import the posts and comments, I do NOT want to import categories or tags (since the new target taxonomy is different and I intend to re-categorizing old posts as a separate task).
My questions are:
1) should the wordpress-importer plugin handle these versions OK?
2) should it be possible simply to comment out the lines (113-115) in wordpress-importer.php responsible for categories tags and terms - thus leaving import of posts only?
ie. comment out:
... $this->process_categories(); $this->process_tags(); $this->process_terms(); ...
... $this->process_posts(); ...
should this still work/achieve what I'm after?
any advice/guidance very gratefully received. thanks.
