Import via Podlove Import tool fails Warning: simplexml_load_string(): Entity: line 16766: parser error :


#1

Hello,

I am running a show (6 episodes) on anitaposch.com. Now I want to move these episodes and the whole podlove setup to another WordPress Installation on bitcoincopodcast.com. The WordPress content is not the same. I want to make bitcoincopodcast.com to my main podcast site.
When I export my podcast data and import it into the new site I get the following error message:

Export and Import of episodes is working.

In the Podcast settings under “Player” I get the following Warning

Warning : Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /www/htdocs/w018b9e0/bitcoincopodcast.com/wp-content/plugins/podlove-podcasting-plugin-for-wordpress/lib/modules/podlove_web_player/media_tag_renderer.php on line 46

Any ideas?
Thank you!

Sorry for the later reply.

Warning : simplexml_load_string(): Entity: line 16766: parser error : EntityRef: expecting ‘;’ in /www/htdocs/w018b9e0/bitcoincopodcast.com/wp-content/plugins/podlove-podcasting-plugin-for-wordpress/lib/modules/import_export/import/podcast_import_job_trait.php on line 18

That error means that the file does not contain valid XML, Maybe the export did not finish correctly? You can check the file with an XML validator like this one: https://xmlvalidation.com/

Thanks for your reply. In the meantime I copied the episodes to the new website, was easier than finding the problem.
