How To Move From Posterous To WordPress

February 16, 2013


This week Posterous announced it would be shutting it's doors. This leaves many bloggers (including this one) looking for another solution. I had setup my personal site and a podcast site on Posterous for ease of use and simple publishing. Now, it's time to move them back into WordPress (where they really should have been all along). This is a good reminder - you should always own your site so this doesn't happen to you. We had issues moving some sites over to WordPress today using the importer plugin that's out there now. So, we forked it, fixed it, tested it - and it works! So give it a try if you are having trouble with the original version of the plugin.
