#8822 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Use SWFUpload on importer tools

Attached is a patch that does the following:

  • Enables support for the lj-user tag, and creates a link to that user's homepage (with class="lj-user" for styling purposes) - fixes #5840
  • Converts lj-cut tags to <!--more--> tags and removes all but the first one
  • Provides the SWFUploader for the uploading files (impacts Blogware, MovableType/TypePad, RSS and WordPress importers as well)
  • Adds some user-friendly instructions on how to export from LJ properly
  • Removes the use of /e in preg_replace() for livejournal.php as detailed in #8689
  • Adds the title of the post to the output in the RSS importer as well (since all the others do that)

This patch was developed based on r10331

  • Keywords dev-feedback added
  • Summary changed from LiveJournal Importer move to SWFUpload plus other upgrades to Use SWFUpload on importer tools

Ignoring the fact that the LiveJournal importer has been completely rewritten, what do the devs/etc think of the SWFUploader part of this patch?

If it's worth it (the main benefit being that it adds the progress bar to the upload?), then I'll make a new patch that just handles that part on the current trunk.

  • Milestone changed from 2.8 to 2.9

Definitely something nice to have, but 2.9 will be changing media and upload stuff so we should table this until then.

#3 @Denis-de-Bernardy

  • Keywords needs-patch added; dev-feedback removed
  • Milestone changed from 2.9 to Future Release

Maybe use now Plupload, see #18206.

  • Milestone changed from Future Release to WordPress.org

#6 @bpetty
5 years ago

  • Keywords needs-patch removed
  • Milestone WordPress.org deleted
  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Closing this out as the 5 year old patches are completely useless now, and this would need to be done with Plupload now anyway.

I'd recommend opening up a fresh new ticket for any new Plupload approach.
