Is there a MetaWeblog API tool to export from BlogEngine to another platform?

Aug 15, 2010 at 4:56 PM

I am currently looking for a utility that uses the MetaWeblog API to export from a BlogEngine hosted blog to a blog hosted on another platform that also uses the MetaWeblog API. The other platform I'm currently looking at is Squarespace, but they don't support uploading a BlogML file; wish they did.

Any suggestions other than writing my own?

For exporting, on the Settings tab in the control panel, at the very bottom is an "Export" button, which exports in BlogML format.

Yes, I see that, but I pointed out that Squarespace does not support uploading a BlogML file. I am trying to find out if there is a tool somewhere that uses the MetaWeblog API to migrate posts from one blog to another. Do you know of any?

I just found some example code on MSDN that shows how to use the MetaWeblog API from C#.

This will help me write a utility that will do what I need.
