Hi,

I am moving from Yola and want to be able to export my current yola blog and then import it into word press or similar.

How is this done please?

You can also download your Yola blog as a database. It doesn't require the downloading of your entire site and it comes neatly packaged in a database. eg use SQLite.

1.) Download the db from the link http://www.yoursite.com/blog/data.db
2.) Install SQLITE addon for FF: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire...
3.) Relaunch FF, tools -> SQLite manager
4.) from the SQLite manager: database -> connect database (open the file they downloaded)
5.) You will now see a list of all your tables in the manager on the left, click on BlogPost
6.) All the table info shows on the right. click export -> choose CSV -> click ok

This will then allow you to upload it to WordPress. It's not a Dashboard utility and requires the understanding of database manipulation. Methods for the manipulation of the database for uploading to WordPress are given in the WordPress help areas.

It is possible.

Gop, how would I download the database from my site, as listed in step one?

I can pull up the page (using my site url) but I am not sure how to start the download process to my computer.

replace "yoursite.com" with your own site URL. Enter this into the address bar and "Enter". It will begin down-loading the database. It will begin the download process to your default download area. You don't have to have your sitebuilder open as its simply addressing the databse of your blog which is a URL itself.

Goodluck Gwen
I've just confirmed that it still works .

Step #6 above is not really part of the process. i just use it to load the dbase into an excel sheet so that I could read the content by eyeballing.
