Migrating a blog from Typo 6 to WordPress 3.4

Finally got time to switch our blog engine to much popular WordPress. There’s no existing tool that can convert a Typo blog to WordPress.

Here’s my draft plan to do it myself.

  1. Write a sample post (this one) in WordPress.
  2. Export this new blog and use its format as guide for import format.
  3. Write a ruby script to dump data from Postgresql into a file in export format
  4. Import the file

Add a few html tags for testing…

I will post the results later.


Export XML file

The imported post is shown here with comment, categories and tags intact.
