Currently, the import of WordPress media TAR files does not work. To register the files, please compress the exported media files into ZIP format and upload and unzip them on KurocoFiles.

Exporting the post data from WordPress

First, export your post data from WordPress. The steps are outlined below. You can also find more information at WordPress Support: Export Your Website’s Content.

In the side menu of your WordPress dashboard, click [Tools] -> [Export].

Specify the content item to save the imported content under the [Convert Content] section. Currently, importing into the content (default 'contents' item) is not supported, so please import into an additional item set up in advance.

Click [Update] to add the import process to the batch processing and execute it.
