[EN] Exporting b2evolution in MovableType format

Introduction

For the purpose of the migration from my b2evolution blog to WordPress (the complete tutorial is here – in french for the moment) , I had to write a skin that can format the b2evolution output in the Movable Type format. This article allows you to download it and presents if quickly.

_MtExport

_MtExport is able to ouput :

  • AUTHOR
  • TITLE
  • BASENAME
  • DATE
  • STATUS
  • ALLOW PINGS
  • ALLOW COMMENTS
  • PRIMARY CATEGORY
  • CATEGORY: (Toutes les autres)
  • KEYWORDS: (les tags)
  • BODY

About the comments, they are preserved and the following fields are part of the output:

  • COMMENT:
    • AUTHOR
    • EMAIL
    • DATE
    • URL
    • IP

Mostly complete ?

Download

MtExportDownload MtExport (Version 1.0)

You can get or reuse the project as part of the CeCILL-B licence. Project is available on my github : https://github.com/FrenchW/MtExport

Installation

Installation is rather simple. Extract the archive content in a folder called « _MtExport ». You’ll then upload this folder into your blog /skins folder.

You’ll then have to go to the skins to activate it and preview it. If needed, the previsualisation url meets this form http://<yourBlog>/?tempskin=_MtExport&redir=no

Feel free to comment and add your thoughts. I’ll try to provide some help if needed.
