Can Wordpress import preserve text formatting?

Recommended Posts


I'm hoping to import a pretty large blog from wordpress in XML format. When I tried my first import, the blog posts lost all line breaks.

The XML looks like this:

<content:encoded><![CDATA[this is paragraph 1.

This is paragraph 2]]></content:encoded>

But it will come out like this: (Note the lack of space after "."

This is paragraph1.This is paragraph 2

Is there a way to edit the XML so that the content imports correctly?

Hey @xcskier56 ! Did you get a solution? I have a problem similar to yours. I have a product listing (almost 1500 items) that was edited on Google Sheets and now when I import the CSV from this listing the paragraph formatting doesn't appear in Squarespace, I didn't want to have to edit item by item in Squarespace. 😞
