#10793 closed enhancement (worksforme)

Add original post's permalink to imported post during WordPress Import

The import of a WordPress export doesn't bring the posts' prior url with it (like the blogger import does).

This patch adds a post_meta field to the new (imported) post that contains the original post's permalink.

The suggested patch is attached.
