Blog import fails to generate reduced-size images

I just imported from http://daveabrahams.wordpress.com (go ahead, try it yourself if you like) and chose to "Import Attachments." The only images from the original site that show up in the result are those that were originally displayed with size-full. The others need to be regenerated by inserting them freshly.

Actually the problem is that the URL syntax is different. The imported URL is:


and the required URL syntax is


This seems difficult to work around at best

Looks like the fix needs to be made somewhere around tags/2.9.2/wp-admin/import/wordpress.php#L651 but now my expertise is exhausted. Would really appreciate a fix or this importing business is going to be painful.

  • Keywords changed from image,size,import to image size import
  • Milestone changed from Unassigned to 3.0
  • Severity changed from major to normal

In the meantime, you could use the Regenerate Thumbnails plugin.

Still an issue? Looks like a wp.com issue?

This mostly worksforme when testing with the theme test data. All resized images show up correctly in post content. However, it relies on browser resizing of the full size image, e.g.

<img src="http://wp.dev/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/boat.jpg?w=300" alt="" title="boat" width="300" height="198" class="size-medium wp-image-544">

All images have their resized equivalents created and saved to disk, e.g. boat.jpg, boat-150x150.jpg and boat-300x198.jpg.
