This is a script we use on the norwegian community root.no to show the latest messages from our IPB forum in our WordPress blog template.
For those of you who don’t know, MT stands for Movable Type and is SixApart‘s blogsystem. It’s a pretty simple plain-text format which many blogsystems (like for instance EE) can do an import from. I used the format description found here.
Download the script here: Serendipity (s9y) MT Export
The process is simple — just edit the following lines in the script:
$db_host = "localhost";
$db_user = "db_user";
$db_pass = "db_password";
$db_name = "db_name";
$filename = "s9y_export_mt.txt"; // file to write to
Upload the script and load it in your browser. A file (s9y_export_mt.txt by default) will be written. This is the file you import.
Enjoy, and ask in the comment section if something is unclear :-)
The SMF_Import module I’ve created can be used to import both users and forum messages to EE, or just the users if you only want to import these. (more…)
