WP Importer not mapping authors

  • Hello,
    I am using WordPress Importer to import an XML file I exported from Compendium. They have a WordPress export feature that seems to work well for the most part. However, when I try to import I get the following issues (I’ve enabled IMPORT_DEBUG):

    1. After clicking Upload and file and import the next page says:

      1:1 Start tag expected, ‘<‘ not found

      There was an error when reading this WXR file
      Details are shown above. The importer will now try again with a different parser…

    2. Under Assign Authors I only see one item, and it says

      1. Import author: ()

      followed by the create username or assign to existing author options. Why are there empty parentheses?

    3. After selecting to include attachments and submitting, the next page again shows the 1:1 Start tag error. Then the page goes on to read

      Failed to create new user for . Their posts will be attributed to the current user. Cannot create a user with an empty login name.

      Why would it say “user for .”, and empty login name? I’ve searched the XML file and none of the <dc:creator> tags are empty.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
