I am attempting to import an export from another wordpress site and I am running into two particularly interesting issues.
Issue 1: When a post is imported, it is imported as the current user despite the fact that I have selected an already existing user using the drop down menu.
Issue 2: All posts are imported as drafts, despite their published status.
Relevant technical information: The export is coming from a WPMU 2.9.2 installation and is being imported into at WP 3.0.1 multisite installation. All content and attachments are imported correctly except for the above mentioned.
Has anyone else run into this issue or know of a not to complicated workaround? I have to import 2 sites at roughly 3K posts per site by about 50 different authors.
Thanks in advance!
