<p>Completed GM 2 WordPress import !</p>
<p>Now you can go and <a href="wp-login.php">log in</a>, have fun !</p>
<p>This is a basic GreyMatter to WordPress import script.</p>
<p>What it does:</p>
<li>parses gm-authors.cgi to import authors: everyone is imported at level 1</li>
<li>parses the entries cgi files to import posts, comments, and karma on posts (although karma is not used on WordPress); if authors are found not to be in gm-authors.cgi, imports them at level 0</li>
<p>What it does not:</p>
<li>parse gm-counter.cgi (what's the use of that file ?), gm-banlist.cgi, gm-cplog.cgi (you can make a CP log hack if you really feel like it, but I question the need of a CP log)</li>
<li>import gm-templates. you'll start with the basic template wp.php</li>
<li>doesn't keep entries on top</li>
<h3>First step: Install WordPress</h3>
<p>Install the WordPress blog as explained in the <a href="../readme.html" target="_blank">ReadMe</a>, then immediately come back here.</p>
<form name="stepOne" method="get">
<input type="hidden" name="action" value="step1" />
<h3>Second step: Provide GreyMatter details</h3>
<table cellpadding="0">
<td>Path to GM files:</td>
<td><input type="text" style="width:300px" name="gmpath" value="/home/my/site/cgi-bin/greymatter/" /></td>
<td>Path to GM entries:</td>
<td><input type="text" style="width:300px" name="archivespath" value="/home/my/site/cgi-bin/greymatter/archives/" /></td>
<p>This importer will search for files 00000001.cgi to 000-whatever.cgi, so you need to enter the number of the last GM post here. (If you don't know that number, just log into your FTP and look it up in the entries' folder)</p>
<td>Last entry's number:</td>
<td><input type="text" name="lastentry" value="00000001" /></td>
<p>When you're ready, click OK to start importing: <input type="submit" name="submit" value="OK" class="search" /></p>
