I just imported a large Wordpress 3.0.1 blog with only 1 minor hiccup. And it only took seconds :)
If you are using latest version of PHP (or XAMPP), make sure you install the latest dev version of this module.
Apart from that... love it!
great module... easy to use
Drupal 6.10 & WP 2.7 - just facilitated the transfer of 750 posts and comments from my wordpress blog in less time than it will have taken me to write this :)
very easy to use, clean and simple...
Got the job done nicely
I stumpled across this module on 02/29/2008. I was thinking about migrating my personal weblog from WP to Drupal, but there was no reliable solution available I knew of.
I gave Wordpress Import a try that morning on fresh local vanilla Drupal 5.7 installation. I activated clean URLs, activated the Blog module and installed Wordpress Import. In my WP weblog I surfed to wp-admin/export.php and exported all my stuff to a local XML file. In Drupal I moved to admin/content/wordpress_import and imported this file.
Here you can specify a mapping for each WP user -> Drupal user and you can choose whether you want to import the posts as nodes of type blog (if you activated the Blog module) or post. WP pages automatically get imported as nodes of type.
Another option to choose from is whether or not you want to preserve your permalink structure. I use this code in WP "/%year%-%monthnum%-%day%/%postname%.html" and my permalinks all got imported correctly as all of my posts and categories did.
With a single click I had all my stuff at hand locally and within Drupal. All I had to do manually was creating menu items for my pages. My WP categories and tags (using WP 2.3 core tag support) get imported as taxonomy terms. Wordpress Import does not differntiate between WP categories and tags (maybe because they are technically the same in WP and the exported file) but that doesn't bother me.
What remains are internal links. So if you linked uploadad files in WP and / or images (and I'm sure you did), you have to make sure that the path /wp-admin/uploads remains on your site. Maybe you can move that uploads folder in Drupal's files folder and use a custom rewrite rule in your .htaccess .
All in all future seems bright for all of you who want to move over and save all yur prescious WordPress posts. I still think WordPress is a great blogging platform, but once you get to know Drupal better, you have so much more possibilities.
With Wordpress Import I had my WP 2.3 stuff migrated to Drupal 5.7 in a few minutes without any problems. This module definately rocks!
