Importing Blog Posts

From Website Builder

Jump to: navigation, search

If you have blog post content already created through another hosting provider and want it to display on your site, you don't have to copy and paste the content into individual blog posts - you can import it directly into your blog! This is much quicker, more convenient and less hassle.

Note:
Only Wordpress blog content is supported currently. This is the most popular blogging software suite, and we are working on supporting more in the future!


Where to Find

Blog post importing options can be found by clicking on the "Import" tab in the "Manage Posts" section of the Toolbar.

Exporting your Blog Post Data

Before you can import this content, it will need to be exported from your other blog software.

How to Use

For Wordpress data, you will need to acquire the appropriate file generated by initiating an export of your blog posts, and make sure it's saved to your computer. You can then simply browse for it on your computer, select it and click the "Upload" button.
