Mercime (or anyone else, nosy!)
I saw that you had something confident to say about XML exports...
I am trying to help someone on this forum move from wp.com to their own blog. Her blog is mature (+40M export file). The new host as agreed to suspend the server limits to allow her to move in.
The problem is that she can't export an intact XML file from wp.com. Yes, a support ticket has filed with wp.com...
Stray tags and categories and spam -all deleted.
It doesn't look like wp.com is going to respond. I looked into RSS scrapers and things like FeedWP/wp-o-matic which were promising, especially for the image caching/auto category generation etc but ultimately, it didn't work out.
Do you have any suggestions?
The ideal would be for wp.com (and org, haha) to allow export parameters. A specific category, author, tag, date range etc instead of glob. But that's dreaming. What works?
BTW: I am aware of the option of splitting the large file into smaller ones, but first, I need (?) an uncorrupted file. What can I do to help manifest the uncorrupted file?
