7.0 to 7.1 using Wordpress

Recommended Posts

Migrating from 7.0 to 7.1.  I have moved pages to the 7.1 site and now need to move the blog. 

I need to keep/restore blog comments, so have exported to Wordpress and imported into the 7.1 site. 

* Zero images imported.

* Comments have imported but are not viewing on the actual blog posts. Comments are enabled globally and on the blog pages.

Has a single person successfully used this method to restore blog comments in a 7.1 site?

Has anyone successfully imported blog images using this method (import into Wordpress and then import into 7.1)?

I contacted Squarespace support (usually amazing) but no help at all this time. 

Thank you to anyone that can save me!

You might want to try this chrome extension for copying blog content, it does work well for content and images, but I don't believe that it will keep the comments:

Glad that the comments made it across, but sorry about the images.  Given the difficulties of upgrading for 7 to 7.1 it would be great if Squarespace had a way of natively transferring certain content such as the blogs as very least, store items and settings would be great too.

So to work around what I needed:

I used the chrome extension (so fantastic) to move the blog from 7.0 to 7.1.

I imported the blog posts that had comments using the Wordpress method and then deleted the duplicate blog posts.

I also have a separate blog with the comments section being used as a 'message board', hence I couldn't lose any comments.. (I wish SS had a way to set up a basic message board or forum).
