Gallery Import

November 16, 2008

i am currently working on a gallery import system for wordpress. It will be able to import into the media library using pages to glue galleries together and to NextGenGallery. I hope that i will be able to finish them within the next few days (spend already too much time on writing importers for wordpress …).


Geeklog Importer

November 16, 2008

While migrating my website from geeklog to wordpress i stumbled upon the geeklog2wp importer from justindave (thanks’ to justindave). This is a very nice and handy piece of code, but unfortunately, some parts are not importet (links, static pages, and images). Beeing a programmer, i rather spend some weeks implementing an importer, than doing any copy paste between my old and my new website …

imported features are:

  • categories
  • users
  • posts
  • static pages
  • comments
  • links
  • article images

further a list of posts which should be checked for geeklog related elements is provided.

The extended version of the original importer can be downloaded from this blog: geeklog.php.

i have tested it with geeklog 1.4.1 vs wordpress 2.6.3. if you have used it for different versions, please leave a comment.
