WordPress Import Tool
Accessing the Import Tool Screen in WordPress
You can Import content to your WordPress Website from a few different formats such as Blogger, Blogroll, Tumblr and of course WordPress.
The Import Tool is a tool that you will probably not use much but if you decide to try it out you have a few options as far as sources.
Blogger – Install the Blogger importer to import posts, comments, and users from a Blogger blog.
Blogroll – Install the blogroll importer to import links in OPML format.
Categories and Tags Converter – Install the category/tag converter to convert existing categories to tags or tags to categories, selectively.
LiveJournal – Install the LiveJournal importer to import posts from LiveJournal using their API.
Movable Type and TypePad – Install the Movable Type importer to import posts and comments from a Movable Type or TypePad blog.
RSS – Install the RSS importer to import posts from an RSS feed.
Tumblr – Install the Tumblr importer to import posts & media from Tumblr using their API.
WordPress – Install the WordPress importer to import posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, and tags from a WordPress export file.
If you do decide to try this it is best that your WordPress site be a fresh install so you can be sure that no existing pages are over written and that no pages are left behind.
Make sure you check the box that says Include Media so you get all of your Media Files as well.
Now that you have logged in to your WordPress site and reviewed the Import Tool Screen what do you do next?
