3. The photos that get imported still have to be rearranged.

Well, that was a bug with my import script. I just fixed this for future imports. Sorry I didn't catch that before you ran your import.

Supposing I choose to have my entries published straight away, would it still be possible to edit them later?

Like Sarah said, yes, you can definitely edit them afterwards.

Quoting Stefmuts

So I tried, selecting 1 blog, only the pics to go with it and safe as draft
Got an error
And now I'm stuck with
'Your import is under way'
153 completed 102 not completed
What to do now???

Just wait. It's in a queue and the queue is running - I just checked. This can take a while as it's got a ton of photos to get through (I managed to get over 700,000 copied across). At this point of the process it's resizing the photos into all the sizes needed on TP and also storing those photos in our database. I didn't want to overload my systems by doing them all at once, so they are going at a steady, but reasonably slow pace.

Not sure about the error though - that sounds like a glitch just when submitting, since the status page you describe now is expected.

Peter, Many thanks for your efforts in setting up the TravBuddy migration process. I was very selective in what I chose to import. (I had already recreated several of my TravBuddy blogs in draft here in Travellerspoint.) However, I received an Error message and a note that a message was being sent to the administrators. Unlike the previous poster, I don't see anything happening. Should I try importing again?

O ok, I'll just wait some more then
Nolan mentioned error messages to be ignored so I did at first but It was running for 2 hours already and I saw nothing happening so I got worried

Hi Andy, no your content looks like it's queued. If you go back to that page you should see a similar status to Stefmuts, though probably stuck on 0 for completed as it's waiting behind other photos being saved at the moment.

I'd better sort this error to avoid further confusion :)

Yeah, be prepared to wait possibly for a few days for this to complete. The more people in the queue, the longer it will take. I'll check up on it occasionally to make sure it hasn't stopped somehow, but so far it hasn't.

Thank you for the update, Peter!

A few days is a bit longer than I expected, If I knew I would have waited before posting worries :)
Thanks for the update

I think the confusion we both had is that we thought along these lines when encountering the text below:

"'Your import is under way'
153 completed 102 not completed"

Well, it really means 102 have not YET been completed. It's not a failed import. As it takes quite a bit to import the photos, whatever is not completed yet is reported as "not completed".

I took over a day to complete my import ... @Peter - do I need to attempt another import so that the scripts for photo placement will work properly in my case?

Appears that most of my TB upload has completed. Again, thank you to Peter for coding this! That was an immense task.

Some observations, not meant as critical.
It does not appear all blog pages copied over. (Queue says I have 4 tasks to go, so perhaps some are in there.) No problem, as I have the TB backup. I did not copy nearly all my TB photos, but even at that, some 3,000+ copied over. It's straightforward to sort by country. Excellent! I've been deleting unneeded photos by using the tick boxes and that has gone well. I can see that all remaining photos will need to edited in order to add descriptions, tags (especially where I add a US state tag), and a more granular geolocation than TB could provide. I have descriptions over at Flickr, so I copy that into the Travellerspoint description. Will take a while, but I like the Travellerspoint gallery. Approaching it chronologically, one can see one's travels over the years.

Recommendation for future enhancement: I do wish once a photo has been edited the system took you back to where you were last working in the list rather than back to the beginning of your photos. (Necessitating country selection anew and advancing again to the needed place in the photo queue.)
