Export b2evolution to Movable Type

Just a small note. Recently I've migrated Sashblog from b2evolution to Movable Type. To accomplish this, I wrote an export script for b2evolution database, which prepares data in format Movable Type can understand. The script exports published entries and comments to them.


What's wrong with b2? The primary reason - bad spam protection and publicly available statistics, which opens a hole for reference hunters. Also, MT has a better template system.

UPDATE Nov,20 2011: I've fixed the link to the file, hope it is still useful to someone..

Nice job,

but the link to your export script is not available anymore. :(

Cheers

I've fixed the link, thanks for pointing out!

It appears the first link is still broken, i.e., the first and second do not point to the same resource. The first link to the script is 404.

Thank you for making this resource available.

Second link has been fixed as well, thanks!

Hi Kir,
I know it's been some while since you posted this, but I have the exact same problem with an old b2evo installation and would love to have your script, but the link is broken again.
Could you kindly fix it again? Thanks a lot!

I still get a 404 on the link to the script.
