Live Space Mover 1.0 !

I finally updated this script to Version 1.0, which means it’s somewhat practical now :)

The most significant change of this version is to use fetch-export-import strategy instead of the old fetch-post one. In the earlier versions, MetaWeblog interface is used to send posts to WordPress, and an additional php file is required to transfer comments. This way suffered by some points:

  1. MetaWeblog interface doesn’t support proxy, or say, I don’t know how to support..
  2. Uploading an additional php file isn’t such a good idea, not possible sometimes
  3. User needs to provide user name, password, etc — a lot of parameters

Now the procedure becomes much intuitive. Just tell this script your live space address, it will fetch all stuff and save them as an XML file. Then use the import function of WordPress to upload and import this XML file. Much better and looks solid, right? :)

Wish more people use it, and dump the sh*t live space….


  1. Vista的Sidebar上面有一个Mashup的工具,我觉得MS对于“RSS到用户桌面的最后一公里”能做到真正的贡献

  2. Thank you guys :)
    Live Space和Live Messenger绑定这一手也真是够厚脸皮的,我就等着看gtalk会不会弄出同样的功能,弄出来之后是绑定blogger还是可以随便填rss地址了。
    RSS现在使用上还是有一些against intuition啊,用浏览器打开一个网页是非常straight forward的一个事情,人人都能理解;但用RSS Reader来订阅,然后收到更新,似乎对很多人来说就不是那么容易理解和使用了。
    尽管Rss Reader的网站和软件做了很多工作来填补“RSS到用户桌面的最后一公里”,现在的状况来看RSS似乎还是更多的被使用在MashUp方面。

  3. cong.
    live spaces唯一不s**k的就是更新后live messenger的小黄花。live messenger上的人大部分不知道rss订阅为何物,即使是整天满嘴mashup的ibm guys,也没几位是bloglines或google reader的用户。
