Posterous to WordPress
As I have tried on the the current 0.7 version of Posterous importer is not compatible with the latest WordPress 3.2.1 version. Hence, I have to use tools from WordPress.com and use it as a medium of bridge to import and export to Posterous. But you will need to register yourself on WordPress.com and get a blog if you do not have any.
- Once you are in the WordPress.com Dashboard page, select Tools > Import > Posterous
- Enter your hostname and also the username which in this case is the email that you registered for your Posterous and enter the password.
- Click Submit, it will then validate whether it’s correct or not. If all the data entered are correct, the importer status will be out and it will show the amount of posts and other information being transfered.
After using WordPress.com as a medium of bridge to export Posterous XML file, follow the export and import steps like how it was shown in WordPress.com to WordPress guidelines and you will be able to migrate all your Posterous posts into your self-hosted WordPress.
For the further steps, please refer the post onhow to migrate using WordPress.com to self-hosted WordPress.
