New Version of Serendipity (s9y) to WordPress Importer Available

Tell your friends!

There is a new version of the Serendipity importer available for WordPress. It can be downloaded at here. Note: The old location no longer works.

This version is a bugfix version addressing issues of unassociated comments and unassociated categories. This should be considered a beta release until I get more user feedback.

To use, upload

1
serendipity.php

to your WordPress blog in the

1
wp-admin/import

directory.

    I’ve been trying to use the Serendipity to wordpress importer but I keep getting the this same error:Warning: Cannot modify header information – headers already sent by (output started at /home/microcap/public_html/wp-admin/admin-header.php:16) in /home/microcap/public_html/wp-includes/wp-db.php on line 373WordPressError establishing a database connectionThis either means that the username and password information in your wp-config.php file is incorrect or we can’t contact the database server at . This could mean your host’s database server is down. * Are you sure you have the correct username and password? * Are you sure that you have typed the correct hostname? * Are you sure that the database server is running?The serendipity account is hosted by Aplus.net, and the WordPress is hosted by BlueHost. Any ideas would be awesome.

    Sounds like pure database connectivity issue. As mentioned that s9y and WP are hosted separately which I assumed they’re on separate networks where MySQL default TCP port 3306 is normally blocked on the perimeter.

    Remember, MySQL authentication requires this port (or any assigned non-standard MySQL port) to be opened to accept database connection. I hope this will help.

    This worked for me but it only imported the the “body” field of the entries table, not the “extended” field (where all my content except the introductory paragraph is).

    Also it ignored the category ID on half the posts. (half the posts would up in the uncategorized category).

    Any Idea’s????

    I had missed the code modification in item 13. When applied the whole post is imported.

    I guess I’ll change the poster names by hand.

    Thanks a million for the VERY useful script. Saved me a lot of work!

    Worked really smoothly except that the entries didn’t go into their respective categories. But that’s okay. It’s still quicker than copying and pasting! :) Thanks!
