How do I import my existing blog to Longwood Blogs?

You can import a blog from numerous other blogging platforms such as WordPress, MoveableType, Blogger, LiveJournal, TypePad, and RSS.

To import your blog from a blogging application, please read your respective blogging platforms details for exporting your data. Once you have exported your data from your blog, go to the Tools > Import subtab. From here, click on the respective blog type you are importing. Browse for the file (which will most likely be an XML file) and click “import”.

Once you’re done here, you will be taken to a page that will ask you to map authors. If you are importing a blog with numerous contributors, you may want to add authors beforehand in order to associate each author with their respective blog posts. After that, click the “submit” button and the import should begin immediately.

One note of caution: Depending on your blog application, you may not be able to import pages, links, and theme customization. If you need further help with this, please use the contact form to describe your issue, and we’ll get back to you shortly.
