Import GUID functionality no longer works
|Reported by:||peterjanes||Owned by:||westi|
WordPress used to preserve GUIDs when importing from RSS feeds. (See Changeset 2193.) Now that the importer uses wp_insert_post that no longer works, since that method always overwrites the GUID with the permalink.
I haven't seen anything that suggests this was a deliberate change, and the RSS and WordPress importers still appear to determine posts' GUIDs so they can be preserved, so I have attached a patch against WP 2.3.2 that changes wp_insert_post to accept and use a guid if provided.
