We Are Experiencing Technical Difficulties, Please Stand By.

I am attempting to move my blog from GoDaddy.com’s Quick Blogcast to WordPress. I’m having a little trouble importing the blog posts — the comments and categories came over, but the only posts that were successfully imported were three draft posts I never published. The importing utility shows them all as having been imported, but they aren’t appearing as posts (obviously), and I can’t find them anywhere except when I try to import them again. We’ll see if the forums can help me avoid having to cut and paste them all.

  1. Hi, I had the exact same problem with one blog – going from GoDaddy to WordPress on Bluehost.com.

    Everything gets imported but it didn’t show up in WordPress.

    Using phpMyAdmin – from the bluehost c-panel – I started peeking into the database and found that the publish tag was not set. I just clicked the edit button … and funny enough the publish tag would by itself be reset to publish .. then just click go to save and voila, the post shows up in WordPress.


  2. That’s a couple of steps more advanced than I would have been capable of. Luckily, I didn’t have too many posts, and I was able to import them by hand.
