LiveJournal import to fresh WP install, XML-RPC Request Failed
|Reported by:||Rubin110||Owned by:|
After grabbing the bleeding edge of trunk (revision 10811) off of SVN and create more or less a fresh instance of WordPress, attempting to import items from a LiveJournal account through the built in importer fails with an error.
Steps to reproduce:
- Grab the latest version of trunk.
- Setup the WordPress install.
- Attempt to import a LiveJournal account through the built in importer.
Importer imports all items from LiveJournal with no reported errors.
Importer returns with a non end user error and does not import any items. Please see attached screen shot.
XML-RPC Request Failed -- 208: Client error: Invalid text encoding: Cannot display this post. Please see http://www.livejournal.com/support/encodings.bml for more information.
I was directed to create a new ticket here with the bug information by Beau Lebens after emailing him with my issue. He noted that there may be an issue with a post that contains international/non-ascii characters. I will investigate this further. The journal in question is located at http://rubin110.livejournal.com .
Side note: This is the first time I'm creating a new ticket for this project. Please let me know if I'm missing anything. Thanks.
