How do I get my content from MT to WP?

If your entries (posts) are all just text and simple HTML code, we can import the XML export file from Movable Type into your new WordPress site.

With rich media blogs, we need to use Movable Type’s backup tool. We will create the archive and upload it to a temporary directory on the WordPress server. Then we will use the Movable Type Backup Importer plugin. This will create a local copy of all images, convert simple embeds to oEmbeds, and preserve tags, categories, and comments.

Pages will have to be recreated manually.

We will not bring over any of the pre-fab Movable Type themes. Your best bet is to start with a fresh WordPress theme. We will work closely with site owners who have highly customized themes.
