I’ve been expanding my Ozblogistan network and have run into an interesting bug.
When importing from Google’s blogspot, all post titles and post content wind up with the ‘>’ symbol prepended. This is annoying.
If you have database access, the fix is fairly straightforward:
update wp_posts set post_title = trim( leading '>' from post_title );
update wp_posts set post_content = trim( leading '>' from post_content );
If you have multisite enabled, like me, you need to run this query for each affected blog, with the correct table number. So for example, if you have blogs 1-10, and blog 7 is affected, the table name might be ‘wp_7_posts’ instead of ‘wp_posts’.
