I am attempting to move from Typepad to WordPress. I’ve exported my Typepad posts, and attempting to import them into my new WordPress blog, but the posts do not appear. I found another post on this topic that is closed, yet unresolved, and it describes my situation exactly. I hope someone knows the answer to this problem; otherwise, this switch isn’t happening! Thanks in advance!
Here’s a cut and paste of another user’s problem that matches mine:
I tried importing my blog from Typepad after creating a new blog here at WordPress. I exported the blog from Typepad onto my desktop, then attempted a couple of times to import the blog into WordPress. I selected the option, “Import from Moveable Type or Typepad”, then selected the file I exported from Typepad and pressed “Upload”.
After import has finished, it prompts me to assign an author to associate with the user name of the imported posts. I do that and after I hit “submit”, nothing happens. There are no posts imported at all. All it says in the bottom status bar is “Done”, but the screen next to the tool menu below the header is blank…there is nothing there.
