Completely New LiveJournal Importer
|Reported by:||beaulebens||Owned by:|
Attached is a diff that, when applied to a recent revision on trunk (developed against r10375) will replace the current LiveJournal importer with a new version.
This one uses their API to import posts and comments, and has been tested to handle over 3,500 posts and 190,000 comments. The data handling is all split up and uses AJAX to try to allow it to handle bigger imports.
It also tries to load as much meta data on posts in LJ as custom fields/postmeta in WP, and translates lj-cut into < !--more--> and lj-user into real links.
It'd be great to get some more people to try this out and see if it's "core-worthy".
