Recommend XML Parser/Converter for Wordpress import?
« on: November 06, 2011, 11:14:13 PM »

I have an XML file exported from a dead blogging platform (Tucows Blogware) that I want to import into a wordpress blog.

I'm looking for a way to convert it to either Wordpress XML or CSV so that all the key fields (author,post date, content title etc) are preserved.

Can any of you knowledgeable folk suggest a program or an approach that I could use?   I have really no idea where to start...

I'm not a coder though I can probably hack someone else's stuff to fit my needs if any one has a sample of something similar...

any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I downloaded the zip and installed it as a WP plugin. But when I tried to activate it failed with the message "The plugin does not have a valid header."

The php file is dated 2006 and i guess the plugin format has changed since then.

I'll keep hunting...
