It seems like every time I do a migration with the WordPress importer, something about my data breaks. For instance, while writing my Year in Review post just now, I noticed last year’s post has an incorrect image:

The image should be the visualization.

It would be really neat if I could verify a migration¬†with WP-CLI. Using the WXR file as the baseline, the command would iterate through all of the data in the file, compare it to what’s present in WordPress, and alert me if anything is missing or unexpectedly different.

How can I help?

Hit me at [email protected] with a short note about what you'd like to do.

My roots are WordPress and publishing, and I love pretty much everything related to web development (architecture, performance, security, etc.). When not working with clients, I also maintain WP-CLI (WordPress' command line interface) and other open source projects.
