Importing Blogs

Some of the built-in importers will import only the most basic content from your old blog: posts and perhaps comments. Others will import categories, links, and even users. The list on the Tools ^ Import panel specifies what can be imported from each type of blog. The list of available importers (Figure 5-1) is:

• Graymatter

• LiveJournal (and all sites based on the underlying software, such as DeadJournal)

• MovableType/Typepad

• Textpattern

You can also import posts from an RSS feed or a blogroll from an OPML file. The list of import tools also includes the tools for importing or converting categories and tags.
