Issues in Moving LiveJournal to WordPress

LiveJournal does not allow you to setup redirects. This means that users visiting your old LiveJournal site will not be automatically redirected to your self hosted WordPress.org site.

Your only hope is to delete your LiveJournal account and wait for search engines to crawl and rank your new site. Even if you delete your old LiveJournal account, search engines will keep showing it in results for some time.

Another issue is that WordPress importer will not import your images. You can either download your images from LiveJournal and upload them manually.

Why Move From LiveJournal to WordPress?

LiveJournal comes with features like protected posts, friends, communities, etc. However, it is very limited in terms of how you display or control your journal. The basic free plan is even more limited than the paid plans.

WordPress is open source. You own your content, and you can do whatever you want with it. You are free to extend your journal in any way you want. You can even make money out of your WordPress site.

Import Content From LiveJournal to WordPress

WordPress comes with a  import tool that automatically imports your LiveJournal entries, comments, and tags into WordPress. Simply visit Tools » Import page and click on LiveJournal.
The LiveJournal Importer plugin will now be installed on your WordPress site. You will need to click on activate plugin and run importer link.
Now see the LiveJournal Importer page where you need to enter your LiveJournal username and password. This allows your WordPress site to access your content on LiveJournal.
If you have password protected posts on your LiveJournal site, then you will need to enter a password which will be used on all protected posts.

Once you are done, click on the ‘Connect to LiveJournal and Import’ button. WordPress will now start importing your content
