Be gentle , but any advice or comments are welcome/needed, got to start somewhere.
EDIT: After a massive response to this post i have a few people to do this for them as they do not know how to install servers or dont have the time, so if you have a need for this then get in contact with me and we can work it out. Thanks for all the responses!
I was recently asked to export a clients blog posts and data from a squarespace account and import it into a WordPress.com blog. I was thinking this would be a easy job but not knowing how to do it i turned to google for the answer, I found, i thought, what i was looking for.
I easily exported the squarespace data and went to the wordpress site to import, it seemed to work but nothing would actually import,it just sort of hung there.
After a lot! of googling I still could not find any reason for this not to work and no one seemed to have a answer.
After many failed attempts and yet seeing ( on youtube ) people easily importing Sqaurespace data it occurred to me that maybe WordPress.com blogs and WordPress.ORG blogs were very different animals and perhaps Wordpress.COM blogs simply are not able to import the blog data from a Squarespace account
Finally, after not finding anyone with the answer I came to this slightly complicated but workable solution to get Squarespace data out and into a WordPress.com blog
Below is a brief step by step of what I did, if you understand all the steps already, great!, if not check back soon and as I will be posting a detailed tutorial with screenshots as soon as I can.
I hopes this helps at least one person out there, Let me know if thats you and post a comment.
Or even better if im totally wrong and you have a better way please let me know
