Successful Drupal import
Finally, after quite a bit of noodling around, I have managed to export my WordPress blog and import it successfully into Drupal. To those with a life, this is perhaps not so impressive. But given Drupal’s quite astonishingly unintuitive user interface I am quite pleased with myself.
If anyone wants to do something similar, the module can be downloaded here. It was the same one that blanked out the browser first time round, but restarting seemed to solve that snafu. Then you have to make sure you map the content to a user. Yes, I know – I zoned out too. And that’s why Drupal said “import successful” but no content appeared. So – there’s a crucial “create user” button you have to activate before it works.
And now? I have to start creating a user interface. That’s the weekend gone. The real downside is that last night I actually dreamed about PHP code strings. You have no idea how disturbing that is…Tweet
