#22994 assigned enhancement

Remove 'blogroll' from the import options

Reported by: Ipstenu Owned by: hareesh-pillai
Milestone: 5.4 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 3.5
Component: Import Keywords: has-patch has-ux-feedback needs-testing
Focuses: administration Cc:
PR Number:


Now that we've dropped links (#21307), we shouldn't encourage importing them. It'll just confuse the newbies.

This will require a change to http://api.wordpress.org/core/importers/1.0/, so while we can clean up /wp-admin/includes/import.php (attached) it won't matter till that's scrubbed. Maybe upgrade that to 1.1 so people who are on older WP are left alone?

  • Component changed from General to Import

  • Cc xoodrew@… added
  • Keywords ux-feedback added

Seems sensible to me. I'd be tempted took hook display to whether they have the plugin enabled or are still running the legacy version though.

I planned ahead. The endpoint receives the version number. :)

  • Keywords needs-testing added
  • Milestone changed from 5.3 to Future Release

With 5.3 Beta 1 shipping today, I'm punting this to Future Release so as not to clog up the 5.4 milestone. However, @hareesh-pillai as the ticket owner feel free to move to 5.4 if you feel comfortable committing to resolving this fully then... thanks!

I've committed the change on api.wordpress.org to not show it in 5.3+. The list in Core is only used as a fallback in the event the API is unreachable (and to allow translations of the importer names/descriptions)

What's the opinion here - Should I leave it as-is, revert, or bump it to not show for 5.4+ instead?

(edit: I had the tabs open and hadn't refreshed the Core ticket, so I wasn't aware it had been bumped at the time)
