Wordpress Import Tool: how to bring all your content to our DCMS

If you have content on your old site that you want to migrate over to your new RebelMouse powered property, you can swiftly do that with our Wordpress Import Tool.
 

We have two instances where you can import your WP articles:
 

1) During sign up, when you're creating your new RebelRunner. (scroll down to #2 if this is not your case)

You'll see this screen at the end of your sign up process:

 

If you click on 'Import your WordPress', you will be prompted for:
- Your WP username and password
- Your xml-rpc endpoint URL, which is where we'll be pulling all your content from.
For more information or if you're unsure how to get that endpoint URL, see here.

That being said, this endpoint URL you need will most likely be the root URL of your WordPress site + /xmlrpc.php.
Example: http://yourWPsite.com/xmlrpc.php

And if you click on the 'Advanced Options' link, you will have the possibility of installing a plugin and getting a couple more custom features for your import:

With the plugin, we'll be able to:

- Import your wordpress authors and create RebelMouse users with them.
- Give you detail on how's the import process status, like this:

You don't have to wait for the import to be finished to go to your dashboard, you can just leave it running in the background.

 


 

2) When you already have a site, you can start your import by going to Content and Feeds.

There you will find all your Feed information and Content for review. Scroll down until you find the WordPress importer:

You will be prompted for:
- Your WP username and password
- Your xml-rpc endpoint URL, which is where we'll be pulling all your content from.
For more information or if you're unsure how to get that endpoint URL, see here.
