Considering this was one of the original use cases for the Atom Syndication format and api, this should be really, really easy, right? I have a valid Atom 1.0 feed that I want to pour into a new Wordpress installation. In theory, I should be able to basically just pipe the Atom feed into the Atompub endpoint, right? Has anyone actually done this on Wordpress 2.3.x? I’ll add anything I find to this entry for the sake of others wanting to do the same thing.
I’ll give you my opinion of the human race in a nutshell … their heart’s
in the right place, but their head is a thoroughly inefficient organ.
