may need to move here permanently

Becuase of the continuing cost of upkeep on the domain and the website hosting, I may at some point in the near future have to move the site to here. That will mean I would have to move the old posts here too. I dont know how to go about doing that so will have to do some investigations, but it must be possible to export the posts from a WordPress site and move it to a blog fairly simply? If anyone reads this and knows how to do it then please let me know!

  1. The FAQ in WordPress makes it sound very straightforward (see extract below)…but I haven’t tried it!

    “How do I move posts between blogs?
    If you have a blog here but decide you want a new blog name, you can move all your posts, pages, comments and categories between the two very easily.

    In blog 1:
    Login > Manage > Export > save the file

    In blog 2:
    Login > Manage > Import > upload the file

    That’s all there is to it.”

  2. Thanks Dave. My version of WordPress on my domain is still 2.0, which doesnt have the export function 😦 I suppose I will have to upgrade it to get that functionality just so I can move! I dont think its that much of an issue, just dont want to lose 2-3 years of posts.
