In my recent move I transferred the contents of this blog by using the WordPress XML Import/Export plugin developed by Aaron Brazell (from code by Matt Mullenweg that is being developed for WP 2.1). It basically did the trick as you can see from this working blog however there is a snag. Although it produces a working site it does not preserve all of the post slugs as it imports them. You get working posts but not necessarily with the same permalinks!
I noticed this because all requests to my old blog are being redirected to the new one and some of them are now appear to be missing. They are not but their ‘perma’-links have changed. It has been a problem for maybe 18 posts out of 440.
