Movable Type importer doesn't obey case restriction on post_status field
|Reported by:||jgbishop||Owned by:|
Exported data from Movable Type 3.34 uses status values like "Publish" instead of "publish." Since WordPress expects the post_status field to be lower case, the Movable Type importer needs to force lower case on the imported data.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Export data from Movable Type 3.34 (I assume any 3.3x Movable Type build acts the same way).
- Import data into WordPress 2.5, using the Movable Type importer.
- Note that the given posts have no "status" set (on the "Manage Posts" page). In the database, the posts have post_status values of "Publish" instead of "publish".
I have attached a very simple patch for the Movable Type importer, which corrects this problem.
