I have a xoops database, with posts that I want to transfer to wordpress.
About 200 posts, all posts have the same author and category.
So I do a select like this to populate an empty and fresh wordpress installation. :
insert into wp_posts (SELECT storyid AS ID, 1 AS post_author, FROM_UNIXTIME( published ) AS post_date, FROM_UNIXTIME( published ) AS post_date_gmt, bodytext AS post_content, title AS post_title, 0 AS post_category, hometext AS post_excerpt, 'publish' AS post_status, 'closed' AS comment_status, 'closed' AS ping_status, '' AS post_password, storyid AS post_name, '' AS to_ping, '' AS pinged, FROM_UNIXTIME( published ) AS post_modified, FROM_UNIXTIME( published ) AS post_modified_gmt, '' AS post_content_filtered, "" AS post_parent, '' AS guid, '' AS menu_order, "" AS post_type, '' AS post_mime_type, 0 AS comment_count FROM
This works fine, no problems running the query. And I can see all the posts in the table wp_posts as expected.
But from the web GUI in wordpress, there is nothing.
When I "add new post" from the web GUI. That posts appear as normal.
Is this not that straight forward or have I forgot something.
Any relations or something..?
