- I used this gist in
source/rss.xmland then ran
- I imported the generated file (in
public/rss.xml) into my Wordpress blog, only to see this error > This does not appear to be a WXR file, missing/invalid WXR version number.
- A helpful post on the Wordpress Forums suggested the following change
<rss xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" version="2.0"> <channel> <atom:link rel="hub" href="http://pubsubhubbub.appspot.com" xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"/> <wp:wxr_version>1.1</wp:wxr_version> <title>Agam's Mashed-Up Pome</title>
(i.e. adding the
wxr_version marker line after the language specification)
- After this, I tried importing again, it gave some warnings about not recognizing the author (which was to be expected) … and then though it said “import successful!”, there were no posts to be seen!
WTF Aaaarrgh WTF
date = “An” slug = “An/failure-to-ragequit”
Yeah, I don’t have the $&@%in time to waste trying various other hacks. The big reasons I wanted to switch was that
- I don’t want to muck around with Ruby ever again, and
- I want to be able to write posts online (i.e. through some sort of browser interface).
Now (1) is not an immediate problem, so I suppose if it re-occurs, I’ll put more time/effort into quitting Octopress, but meanwhile there are compromises possible for (2), such as the nice interface of draftin.com that I just discovered. So yeah, this blog lives on …
