Is there some way to export/import links from a wordpress.com site to a private site? I have a rather large directory of links. I fetch the opml file and the category levels are there, but when I use the Bloggroller importer, it doesn't create the categories? Help would be appreciated.

If you're going from WP to WP, then you want to use the built-in exporter and importer. Your links should come along with it. I'm not sure about the categories with it, but this might help http://ellejohara.com/blog/making-the-wordpress-opml-tool-slightly-more-useful/

Nope. The categories doesn't work. Thanks anyway. –  grm Sep 24 '10 at 10:43
    
I just did some research, and unfortunately, the export import is just pages/posts in an RSS XML/format. wordpress.stackexchange.com/questions/7441/… –  NealWalters Jan 24 '11 at 2:04

when you say a private site, what platform is it? export file would essentially be the same, but how the new platform imports and handles the data is on their site, not WordPress.

Sorry, the private site is a WordPress site –  grm Sep 15 '10 at 10:59
