Import of blogs keeps failing

Recommended Posts

Since I cannot find any answers online I will ask here. I am exporting blog posts from one squarespace 7 site and trying to import them into another squarespace 7 site. I am using the wordpress import and export xml file, and it keeps failing. The one time it worked, instead of importing the blog posts, it imported all of the pages from the site, which I thought wasnt even possible.

anyway, I need to simple just import the blog posts. any thoughts? I keep getting this error. Thanks

— WORDPRESS Import complete. Status: Failed
— The import has failed.
— com.squarespace.v6.business.content.exceptions.InvalidContentItemException: urlId cannot be null: 9DXR4ELWSH3NLRACA2AM

Hi drdavis74, 

At the moment, Squarespace isn't optimized for importing content between Squarespace 7 sites. This is mentioned in the help guide below:

Importing and exporting content

If you would like to submit that as a feature request, please contact our Customer Support team as Squarespace doesn’t track feature requests or bug reports in this forum.

Thanks!

Indeed! Am using a 7.1 template and the import simply errors out (export from another squarespace website) - is there no way to debug this?

Would make squarespace really useful if one can efficiently import and export content!!

I am having the same issues - trying to move a blog from one of my Squarespace 7 sites to another Squarespace 7 sites. Has anyone had success importing to an actual Wordpress page and then exporting from there (as opposed to creating the xml but not putting onto Wordpress first)

It will be easier to do this directly from Squarespace to Squarespace. There's a similar thread here:

@trixiefilms I just did it and it worked. Took forever and there's formatting that has to be fixed, but its better than having to go through and do it manually 400x in my case.

Have to share raves for the Squarespace Websites Tools Extension, which someone recommended on another thread here. Moving a large blog from one SS7 site to another took less than 1/2 hour with no problems at all. Worth the $50 price (but shame on SS for not having this feature built in.)

That is good to know. I had to go in and add the images to all 300 posts still unfortunately.

Thanks for mentioning that. I did lose a lot of images (but not all) and I doubt I'm going to take the time to fix that.
