Importing Content into My Blog

If you have content from another blog that you want to bring into your Jive blog, you can import it by converting it to Movable Type first.

If you've got a blog in Jive, you can import content from your other blogs. You'll need to first export content from those blogs into the Movable Type import format. Some blogging tools can do that pretty easily.

Note: If you export content from WordPress, you might need to do a little editing of the exported content before you import it. When your WordPress blog posts include HTML tags, the file exported from WordPress omits tags needed to tell Jive that the HTML is there. You'll need to enclose the content in <body> tags before importing. Here's an example:

Before

This is my <b>BOLD</b> HTML example.

After

<body>This is my <b>BOLD</b> HTML example.</body>

To import content into your Jive blog:

  1. Open your profile by going to the top right and selecting your avatar > View Profile
  2. Click Content.
  3. Under Your Blog, click your blog name.
    Note: You won't see your blog here until you have published at least one blog post.
  4. Click Manage in the Actions menu.
  5. Click Import under Manage.
  6. Click Choose File.
  7. Find and select your file, and then click Open.
  8. Click Upload File.
