I am experiencing something weird when moving from WP.COM to my self hosted WP.ORG.
I have generated the export file from my blog (it has about 3.5MB) and have then installed the WP importer plug-in and uploaded the file.
Everything is imported fine, however the posts are not linked to the tags or categories. It is like every imported post was set to the "uncategorized" category with no tags at all.
I can indeed see that the categories and tags were saved correctly. They are all there, but they have no post linked to them.
I have 48 categories and 1000+ tags and 174 posts.
No error is shown.
Weird is that I tried the same thing on another host with the same WP 3.0.1 I was testing and everything went fine. The problem is that the host was not good and I changed.
Do you know what can be causing this behavior of setting all categories to "Uncategorized"? Seems that the tags and categories are being ignored by the importer.
