I am trying to import over 10K categories into WordPress, and all 10K should map to a parent category.
Can someone please show me how to create an RSS file (xml) that would allow me to import the sample categories mapped to a parent category using WordPress's Import RSS file capability?
I exported my wordpress db using the Export functionality. I examined the file, and tried to create my own using Excel and then copying/pasting my concactenated fields into an XML string. I then pasted it into notepad and saved the file as import.xml. I then tried to Import the xml file into WordPress using Manage > Import > RSS.
However, I am unable to get it to import and create the categories mapped to a parent category.
Here is contents of the import.xml file I created:
<wp:category><wp:category_nicename>insurance-news</wp:category_nicename><wp:category_parent>Financial News</wp:category_parent><wp:cat_name><![CDATA[Insurance News ]]></wp:cat_name><wp:category_description><![CDATA[Insurance News]]></wp:category_description></wp:category>
Any assistance is much appreciated! I just want WordPress to automatically create the new categories and map them to a parent category.
