We show you how to export your data from Typepad using our TP2WP Demo Site.
Step 2: Convert Your Typepad Data to WordPress XML
In this demo we show you how to take the next step in converting your Typepad site to WordPress. Using the TP2WP conversion service, you’ll turn your .txt file from Typepad into WordPress XML. This will set the stage for the final step of the process, importing your data into WordPress.
Step 3: Import Your New XML File into WordPress
Using the new XML file you created via the TP2WP conversion service, you’ll now import your blog’s data and associated files into WordPress. This process begins with installing the TP2WP Importer plugin.
