- Grab my mt blosxom flavor files and add to your $datadir. Right-click to save these files:
content_type.mt date.mt, foot.mt , head.mt, story.mt
- Edit story.mt and change the line "AUTHOR: marc" to whatever
username you will be using.
- If you are using the blosxom clicktrack plugin (00clicktrack),
- Visit your blosxom site using the mt flavor:
http://yoursite.local/cgi-bin/blosxom?flav=mt and save it into a
file named import in your wp-admin directory. You may want to try
this: lynx -dump http://yoursite.local/cgi-bin/blosxom?flav=mt >
- Take a look at the import.txt file you just created. There are some
things you may want to fix now rather than after the import.
- Lines are wrapped at 79 characters, so long URLs or entry titles may be broken.
- If you have a habit of using a bunch of dashes to separate text, the importer
may get confused and think it is the beginning of a new entry. Consider replacing
- with =
- All the categories will be something like /nh (based on the pathname). You may want
to remove the leading slash. You can fix this after import and well as build up
a category hierarchy, so it isn't a big deal.
- Follow the standard WordPress instructions for import-mt.php.
- If you don't like your categories named with a leading slash (eg:
/nh), then edit your new WordPress categories.
- Start going through your posts and clean up any messes...

HOWTO migrate from blosxom to wordpress
For my piece of mind, please backup your wordpress database before proceeding. I don't want my instructions to cause you to lose data.
