hi there!

is it posible to export every geeklog-content (there are just articles and users - links and the calendar aren't important) to Movable-Type-Files?

I doubt anyone here knows anything about that MovableType format ...

Exporting the stories from the database should be easy enough. phpMyAdmin, for example, has an option to export tables to CSV. You should be able to rescue your story text from there - manually, if nothing else helps (I have no idea which, if any, import formats MT supports).

Well, I did actually write a plugin now that can both import from and export to Movable Type's import format.

It's a little rough around the edges still, but seems to do the job. And the content I tested it with did (more or less) survive the round trip from Geeklog to MT and back to Geeklog.

It currently requires Geeklog 1.4.1, but it should be possible to make it work with 1.4.0 if there's enough demand.

What I'm looking for now are people who could test it with real data (any direction). Anyone interested?

bye, Dirk

Heh, maybe I should check our own download section before reinventing the wheel. But at least my wheel, err, plugin, can also do exports 8)
