    Hregstoll, hello!

    I indicates an error.
    ====
    Status: Error getting session – please try again. If this continues to happen, contact Greg (reachable from http://www.gregstoll.com)
    ====
    Perhaps because of more than 700 entries? What should I do?
    Do I understand correctly, then what you need to send backup?

    Thank you!

    Hi @mmeshkov

    700 entries shouldn’t be a problem. (my journal has ~1800) Do you have any entries in Russian or another non-English language? Someone else has emailed me with a similar problem, and I’m working on it now…

    Gregstoll, yes, my journal in Russian. This is the problem?

    Thank you for your hard work!

    Hi Gregstoll,
    Thank you very much for the python script. My journal is in russian, so I used Semagic lj-client to dump my posts to the xml, and then modified your script to convert the obtained dump to wordpress format. Works like a charm. The only issue is that comments can’t be imported this way. But I hadn’t any intention to import them anyway.

    Hi @mmeshkov

    I fixed a number of bugs today including some dealing with non-English characters. Can you try running LJBackup again?

    I have this error too:

    All my posts are in Russian.

    Hmm, sounds like there are more bugs I haven’t fixed yet :-/ If you send me an email at (email redacted) I can work on figuring out what’s wrong.
