Import from Wordpress

We need to import articles from Wordpress to EZ. 

I found this script:

but it has not been changed in the last 6 years.


Does anyone know about an extension or script that is possible to use or do we have to write our own?

We just made an extension to import from .json and .csv -files, but I hoped that since WP is pretty popular it was something that already existed (?).

Hello Jeanette,

I'm pleased you found the wordpressimport script!

Wordpress content db is fairly consistent so I think the script should still work.

Let me know your thoughts!

Thanks for your feedback and suggestions guys! 

I hoped for a solutions as easy as importing TO wordpress, but it seems we have to do some job here blunk.gif Emoticon 

//Heath: I have not tested it and I have not looked in to it very much yet. I'll let you know if we decide to use it.

I think maby we will modify the code we used for the other projects. That means, exporting the post from WP admin and then modify the script we used on the other project to read the WP xml file and create ez objects.
