The MU forums have moved to WordPress.org

Import does not import categories (6 posts)

    When I try to import, I get 2 types of errors
    well, first one is the warning that says

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/adadsat0/public_html/wp-admin/import/wordpress.php on line 101

    .

    Since that's a warning, not too much worried.

    BUT
    if a category is already found in the DB, then a DB error is displayed [everytime] and surprisingly NO CATEGORIES were imported. All were blank with category IDs!

    WordPress database error: [Duplicate entry '241' for key 1]
    UPDATE wp_4_categories SET cat_ID = '241' WHERE cat_id = '809'

    Any help?

    Mmm.. It is not exactly if there is the same category it doesn't import all categories.

    Because,
    I imported 5 different blogs. 3 worked correctly & 2 didn't import the categories. But that's where it gave the above mentioned DB error message.

    I'm having the same problem, and need a solution fast. Anyone else encounter this issue/know if it's fixed in the latest nightly?

    nevermind, this is fixed in the latest wordpress.php file on trac.

    It'd be great to get that wordpress.php included in the files available for download from the main site... May prevent people migrating from WP to MU from having to google around after issues crop up 3min into the process :)

    Are you saying that you want this feature or you're happy to see that it's there as the import/ exporter is included within wp 2.1. I'm a bit lost as to your post.

    Library's open but the coffee stand is still closed. I'm not awake yet. :)
