Hi @jonburke, I was trying the export/import tool of P2 and I got stuck somehow on my first try. This is more of a suggestion on the message/workflow when importing. Here are the steps I took:
- Opened Import Tool.
- Clicked on WordPress.
- Clicked the link “upload it to import content.”
- Browsed for the XML file and got this window below. It says that “Please reassign the authors of the imported items….”. At this point I don’t have the same authors in the new P2 and not enough new users to assign to. I just chose my name on the dropdown that corresponds to Elbert Campos as author from the original site. I left the other 2 unassigned. I clicked “Start import” button. No error message at all or warning.
5. I got this window saying “Success! File Uploaded”. At this point, I thought that the posts/pages/comments were already imported because of the message “Success!”. Though I was curious why the “Cancel” button below instead of Done or Go back to menu.
6. Stuck….. I checked posts and pages, I got nothing.
My second try was a success because this time, I reassigned all authors and got a new window import in progress. May I suggest a message saying that “You MUST reassign authors before importing”. Or if a user clicked the “Start import” button without reassigning the authors, there should be a pop-up message saying “Please reassign authors”.
