export2wordpressxrss v0.9

Release Notes


  1. Will export all users
  2. Will export all blogs (may currently have a hard coded entity subtype in the query though)
  3. Will export all comments



  1. Template for tags created, but currently haven't added the query to get them
  2. Pages currently not supported
  3. All blogs will be harded coded to public
  4. The site headers are all hardcoded to 'example.com' as I didn't need them.



  1. Wordpress will attempt to auto import photos, but will fail for any that were uploaded to the elgg site that aren't set to public.
  • Vewy interesting functionality - offloading the Elgg users,, blogs, comments data- could be used as the basis for other kinds of export/import. DeScoop finds this impressive ;-)

  • @DhrupDeScoop I guess if someone developed an import version of this for Elgg, it could provide an easy way to migrate data from one elgg installation to another.  I also structured the code in such a way that the code isn't Elgg independent and could, for example, by easilly modified to export, say a b2evolution site, in this format...

  • Yess - my thoughts. Right now Elgg-Elgg moves are mostly the usual site-clone instructions - but not a logical data export / import. Something like Marcus Povey's ODD structures is needed to facilitate logical data transfers ;-) There's PlugIns/ code floating around to do this is small parts for groups, users, etc..

  • @ilham Unless you can be more descriptive of the problem, I can't be sure, but I suspect thats the hard coded entity subtype for blogs.  In my installation blogs have entity subtype of 5, so this script works for me.  I need to change the query that gets the blogs to check for the correct value.  Thats why this is still 0.9 and not 1.0 release... :-)
