What do I need? Some import module? If you have the wordpress .xml can this be loaded in to silverstripe?

Phalkunz wrote a WP import module a while back (http://open.silverstripe.org/browser/modules/wordpressimport) not sure how up to date that is or if it does what your looking for.

@Willr, I have 61 wp blogs to import. After looking through the forums is my best bet to host a wp blog and archive my posts then redirect to it from CMS as my archive?

Also, I tried installing wp to mysilverstripeinstall.com/blogarchives but all I get is "page not found" Do I have to host it on a subsite or a whole other url?

Newbie question I know! Please humor me!

Well SS will be greedy and look for the blogarchives page first so you have to tell it to ignore that url. Add the following to your .htaccess file (before the rewrite rule)

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !^/blogarchives*

You are brilliant! I think I will try this!

However, that import is very tempting.

From an SEO stand point I would be better off importing over the /blogarchives on wordpress option?

Thanks again for all your wisdom!

Update: Dang, getting 502 bad gateway on the wordpress-to-silverstripe solution.

Just so others know, this worked on my test box when I was testing migration of my site from WP to SS. There was an error or two but I contacted the owner of the WP importer and he worked with me to get through them.

I gave him the errors I saw in my web logs.

So maybe get the information over and maybe he will see a solutions.

Thanks, I choose to just install a wp archive that I will redirect toward. The error was from the site to download the code. Thanks for your reply!
