#7668 closed defect (bug) (worksforme)

xml import stopped by a post containing empty tag

As described in the forum : http://wordpress.org/support/topic/200696, the xml export is able to export post with tags but empty tags... the bad side effects of that during import in a another wp site : the import stop when the post contain :

<category domain="tag"><![CDATA[]]></category>
<category domain="tag" nicename="53"><![CDATA[]]></category>

the today workaround is : verify and clean tags through admin just before exporting posts...

the future solution ? :
avoid creating empty tag (without term) - the slug was by default the ID of tag

avoid during export creating xml "tag" if the name of tag is empty

avoid during import stopping without verbose messages....

Hope solution will be possible for future release..

Just tested and the import seems to work now. Also, you are no longer able to create a tag without giving it a name, so this situation will not occur again when exporting.
