Importing from TypePad to WordPress: Posts ok, pages NOT ok

Both TypePad and WordPress can import from each other, but WordPress seems to have one little flaw: pages in TypePad are imported as posts in WordPress, so you will have to manually copy and paste and make them into pages. It’s not a great deal of work, but it’s still extra and annoying work if you have a lot of pages. TypePad does not have this problem, pages and posts are imported seamlessly as pages and posts. I don’t know if this is a general issue with importing from Typepad to WordPress or whether I did something wrong. If you have other experiences, I’d love to hear from you.

Another issue you should be aware of is that your post “keywords” in TypePad are turned into post tags in WordPress. That I find very useful. A third thing to remember when importing is that all image URLs are absolute, so will have to upload all post images from TypePad into WordPress and reinsert them into your posts.

Issue: Two pages in TypePad, “Contact” and “About”, are turned into posts in WordPress.
