A Wordpress Plugin To Import Your ActiveRain Posts

Original content by Jeff Turner

A few weeks ago, ActiveRain released a new feature that allowed members to export an archive of their individual blog posts. In the announcement, Brad said, "It's open nature will allow for the development of third-party import tools."

So, I sent the link to my partner, Steve Zehngut, and we put "create a Wordpress Plugin to import ActiveRain posts" on our to do list. Today we tested it and are ready to release it into the wild. You should be aware that the ActiveRain export does not include categories, tags or comments. So, our plugin imports the posts and gives them a category of "Active Rain" in your Wordpress blog. This will make them easy to find. If you're importing your posts into an existing blog, I would import them as draft. The video below will illustrate.

Visit this page to download the Wordpress Plugin to Import ActiveRain Blog Posts.

Let us know if you have any problems with it.

C, thank you! I will certainly check this out. I write most of my posts in Scribefire which does not post to AR, but does post to wordpress, both paid and unpaid versions. This could eliminate a few issues that crop up for  me. Thanks for taking up the challenge, I do appreciate it. And tell your partner thanks too!

This looks very interesting. I am wondering if it will import the pictures too or if you need to import them separately.

Does Wordpress take advantage of "Google Juice" that we talk about in Active Rain?
