Description

This importer import posts (users, comments, tags, categories), links (categories) into WordPress 2.3 from a Dotclear export flat file. A restart procedure allows the import of big blogs.

It's the importer for a Dotclear 2 blog. It imports also from a Dotclear 1.2.x blog (note that the embedded Dotclear importer imports from Dotclear 1 only).

Download the http://cvie.free.fr/public/flatimport.zip ; a tutorial is embedded with the flatimport.php script.

I know now how to patch a Wordpress file, thanks to Owen http://asymptomatic.net/2005/12/03/2142/how-to-patch-wordpress/. I want to upload my newly files for the Dotclear flatimport importer.

Tell me if just a TortoiseSVN → Add is the right thing to do?

Replying to albaran:

Tell me if just a TortoiseSVN → Add is the right thing to do?


Quoting from Owen's page:

  1. Create a patch - This is easy. Right-click on the wordpress root folder and select Tortoise SVN - Create Patch. A dialog appears to allow you to select the files you want to include in the patch. Check the files you want to include, then save the patch file. If I'm patching one file, I'll usually use the full name of the file followed by ".diff", for example, "admin-functions.php.diff".
  1. Find a Trac Ticket - To submit a patch, you need a ticket. Be sure to search for an existing ticket for your issue before creating a new ticket. If one doesn't exist, create one and explain the problem as clearly as possible. When you have a ticket, click Attach File and attach your patch file.

This importer was tested successfully for WP 2.0 up to WP 2.3-alpha.

This last version is specific to WP 2.3 (native tags, nonce added ...)

A sample of test files is available here http://cvie.free.fr/public/blog-backup.zip with a readme.txt file.

Dotclear importer hasn't been updated in over 2 years. If its not being supported anymore, should:

  • This ticket be closed? And if so
  • Should the option to install the importer be removed from core?
