Until this morning I was a WP 1.2 user. I saw no real reason to move to 1.5 since I already had Kubrick and a ton of custom mods I didn’t want to redo. Well, it’s not that I *saw no reason,* I was simply happy with 1.2.
This morning I decided to upgrade to 2.0 and had what I thought was a brilliant idea – instead of all that backing up, I’ll simply set up a fresh 2.0 install in it’s own directory – leave the old 1.2 working and *IMPORT* all the entries from one wordpress blog to another.
Setting up the new blog took all of 45 seconds (I’m not even really exaggerating.) But now, I see there’s no “upgrade from WordPress” option – only MT, Textpattern, etc.
Feature Request: It would be cool if there was an “import from WordPress” option.
For now, I’ll just try the RSS option and see how that works. I’m sure it will be fine but it would be nice to keep things like – post passwords for protected posts, names of original posters in cases of multi-user blogs, etc.
Whelp, I’ll give the RSS import a try and report back…
