importing a subset of a blog (author export) can result in a page structure without any top level page parent
|Reported by:||nyoungman||Owned by:|
When importing a subset of pages into a new blog using Wordpress XML, it can result with no pages with a page parent of 0.
As a result, the page parent setting doesn't have a drop down, and there is no option for a static page (reading), and links to pages on the public site don't work. The pages view in admin also appears flat, instead of as a hierarchy.
By simply changing the topmost page to page_parent 0 in phpMyAdmin, everything works. Ideally import would give some control over the page parents of top level page(s), or detect the situation where no page_parents of 0 exist.
