Helli (a member in the forum) posted the fix for this bug in the forum 10 months ago for version 2.1 - this should be added to the list of bugs/defects for the next release:

Add in wp-admin\export.php:

<excerpt:encoded><![CDATA[<?php echo $post->post_excerpt ?>]]></excerpt:encoded>


<content:encoded><![CDATA[<?php echo $post->post_content ?>]]></content:encoded>

and in wp-admin\import\wordpress.php:


$post_author = $this->get_tag( $post, 'dc:creator' );


$post_excerpt = $this->get_tag( $post, 'excerpt:encoded' );
$post_excerpt = str_replace(array ('<![CDATA,?]>'), , $post_excerpt);
$post_excerpt = preg_replace('|<(/?[A-Z]+)|e', "'<' . strtolower('$1')", $post_excerpt);
$post_excerpt = str_replace('<br>', '<br />', $post_excerpt);
$post_excerpt = str_replace('<hr>', '<hr />', $post_excerpt);

(above this line)

$post_content = $this->get_tag( $post, 'content:encoded' );

Fine by me. Anyone want to create a patch?

Are you looking for a specific patch in "diff -u" format? The original poster did specify the code changes necessary. If the only thing holding this back is the format of the code patch, that can certainly be provided pretty quickly.

I have submitted a patch (see the attachment). I was able to omit one of the lines that stripped out <![CDATA[]>, since that gets done elsewhere already.

Confirmed. I just got burned by this bug and I'm surprised it's been around this long.

This fix no longer works in 2.6.2 - and import/export of post excerpts is still not included in the function.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from reopened to closed

according to the export file: the excerpt was included as per [7965], reclosing as fixed.
