#15760 assigned defect (bug)

LiveJournal Importer mishandles some <lj-cut> and <lj user=""> expressions

Reported by: designsimply's profile designsimply Owned by: westi's profile westi
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version:
Component: Import Keywords: livejournal dev-feedback wporg-importer
Focuses: Cc:


There is a note on plugins.trac ticket 1231 that says this should be handled in core.trac instead, so I'm cross-posting it here. The patch and ticket were originally added by a-bishop:

Reproduction steps: 1. Create a LiveJournal? entry that has <lj user="foo" /> in it. Note that this is XML-ish 2. Try to use the livejournal-importer on this post.

Bug The <lj user="foo" /> gets ignored because the regular expression is too strict.

I've attached a patch that makes LiveJournal? Importer recognize the XML-ish version.

Given that the LiveJournal plugin hasn't been updated in over 2 years, and there's a ton of other issues reported in the support/review area of the plugin listing on, if it will not be maintained further, perhaps the best course of action would be removing the item from the backend options, and noting the plugin is no longer maintained on
