I have an existing blog/news site that runs on BE.net 2.6 and i would like to migrate it to Orchard. Right now i am testing the migration locally. I exported the BE.net posts as Blog ML and imported into Orchard. Two rubs - one) Orchard does not pick up the tags in BE and instead see the categories (of which there are only 3) as the tags and two) my excerpts in BE do not appear in Orchard after import. My excerpts typically have short text and an image and i want to be able to show those in the page that lists all the posts. I found the fork of Blog ML that should allow tags to be brought corectly except when using that version the Blog ML options in the dashboard are not present.

You can see the live site (running BE 2.6) here http://nomorecocktails.com. I'd like the listing of posts to appear the same way in orchard. And if you can help figure out how to getthe tags in too. I'd rather not have to go back through and edit the posts in orchard to ad the tags.

 

Thanks for any help.
