A module to import WordPress XML into Silverstripe Weblog.

Please note that I have not used this import module in over 6 years, so it may or may not work as expected.

This module is somewhat of a hack as WordPress integrates plugin shortcodes (requiring these WP plugins) inti the the XML export file.

This tool currently parses images, YouTube videos and links, plus the standard text formatting. All other shortcodes are optionally stripped from the content.

Once the blog has been imported, this module can be uninstalled as it serves no further purpose.
