[resolved] Scared to drop tables!! (2 posts)

    I have two blogs and really need to import posts and comments from one blog (business blog) into the other (personal blog), but I'm scared to death I'm going to mess something up!!

    I have the blogs hosted on godaddy and have backed up both databases following the directions at http://codex.wordpress.org/Backing_Up_Your_Database to the letter, but I've been reading some of the support threads here and it seems that because I just want to MERGE posts and comments into the personal blog and leave both intact, then I don't know which instructions to follow. There are too many variations and I have a feeling that if I try to guess which one to go with, I will have everything so screwed up I'll be pulling my hair out by bedtime.

    I'm sure this would probably take 5-10 minutes for someone to do who KNOWS knows what he/she is doing, but I do not! Are any of you wordpress/phpmyadmin programming masters available for hire for something like this?!! I hope I'm not violating any rules by asking.

    Please reply here or email me at worddiva@hotmail.com if able to help. Thanks!

    If you want more control, and if you have around 150 posts, you can simply cut and paste from one blog to another. Then, do not forget to give the right category and to change the time stamp of each post for the time they have been posted.
    It tooks me 4 hours, but at the end, I was sure of the result.

    Or, go to one blog, on WP-admin, go to Options -> Reading, on Syndacation feeds, put the numbers of posts you have (i.e. 150), check the "full text" button. Then use a RSS reader software, save the RSS feed in a text file, go to WP admin, -> import ->impost RSS, and select the saved file. It should be OK.
