WordPress now supports easier LiveJournal migration

Great job! Check it out!

  • Enter your LiveJournal username and password and you’re ready to go
  • WordPress will automatically connect to the LiveJournal API and download all of your posts:
    • Posts marked as “Friends Only” are assigned a password within WordPress (so you need to share this password with friends so they can read it. If you prefer, you can leave this password empty and then set your entire WordPress blog to “Private”. That way only the people you invite to be members of your blog will be able to read anything you write.),
    • Posts marked as “Private (you only)” are marked as Private within WordPress, which means that only Editors and Admins on your new blog can read them,
    • lj-cut tags are converted to the WordPress equivalent, the <! — more — > tag,
    • lj-user tags are converted to normal links back to your friend’s LiveJournal account,
    • Tags are imported properly,
    • If you closed the comments on a post in LiveJournal, then they’ll be closed in WordPress as well,
  • Next up, all of your comments are also imported,
    • Threading is preserved, so replies to other comments show up successfully (themes on WordPress.com don’t support this yet, but they will soon),
    • The “subject” of each comment is included as the first line of the comment itself, because WordPress doesn’t have a comment title/subject value,
    • LiveJournal users get links back to their LiveJournals,
    • Your own comments are connected to your WordPress account, and are linked back to your new WordPress blog,
    • Anonymous users are labeled as “Anonymous”,
    • “Screened” comments on LiveJournal are imported as “Unapproved” within WordPress, so you can decide what to do with them
