Looking for wordpress import advice

I'm looking at using xpath and tsql to import my thousands of blog entries from the ms sql management studio. In order to generate new blog entries and page redirects which stored procedures should I call beyond calling the insert html content proc for creating my blog pages? All of the pages are going into the same blog so while its a lot of content its all going into one container, so I know I grab the GUID for my blog and use that to link in the html content. But I'm wondering what other stored procs get called when a new blog entry is inserted?

Actually in this case I'd have to import over odbc from mysql, but the problem seems to be navigating the complexity of content insert on mojo.

Re: Looking for wordpress import advice

I don't have any elaborate advice on this, other than create a few blog posts using the UI then study how the data is formatted in the mp_Blog* tables as well as the mp_FriendlyUrls table, and try to import your data so it is formatted the same.

I have a to do in the project tracker to implement support for importing from rss feeds and eventually will get to that but not sure when, unfortuantely not very soon due to other priorities that I'm focused on.

Hope that helps,

Joe

I'm being tasked at work to do a pretty massive import, so I can either share the xml file with you or if I get my patches to the blog code with you so you can add it back into mainline mojoportal if the code passes muster.

Re: Looking for wordpress import advice

Hi,

If you'd like to try and implement the import utility for the blog that would be great and I would be glad to review and integrate it once it is ready. That would be a great contribution.

I would like it if you could send me the xml file, I can use it for testing once you implement the code, or if you don't implement it at least I'll have a good file to work with when I can get to it. You can send it to joe dot audette at g mail dotcom

Thanks!

Joe
