There have been several fixes to both the importer and exporter since 2.1.3 was released. Some of these dealt with pages and page hierarchy. So the problem may be fixed, but you should make sure.

I suggest downloading the latest export.php and import/wordpress.php and trying them on your blogs, to see if they fix the problem.

Download them from here:

See if those help. Let us know what happens.

The both files you told me to download and test worked correct.
No more error now :)

But at the page that show the pages and posts imported (this page appear later I click at the buttom "Upload File and Import") I found something confuse, Wordpress show all the pages and posts imported with name "post", take a look:

If you didn't understand what I'm trying to say. The screen who shows the posts & pages & subpages imported appear wrong yet:

  1. Importing post About... (should appear with the name "page" not "post" right ?)
  2. Importing post Contact... (should appear with the name "page" not "post" right ?)
  3. Importing post Delayed Wordpress 2.2 Release ... (1 comments) (this is post, so... ok for this)
  4. Importing post Books... (should appear with the name "page" not "post" right ?)
  5. Importing post child_1... (should appear with the name "parent_name_page_sub_page_name" not "post") the last could be implemented ?

Since now thanks, :)
