To commemorate my sudden switch to WordPress I’ll give you a small hint on how to get your data exported rapidly through RSS.

All you need to do is open is edit [GHOST FOLDER]/core/server/models/post.js look for the text // Set default settings for options, you will see the limit is set to 15, alter that to “900000”.

Restart ghost server, go to your site http://mysite.com/feed and save as the feed. You will notice all your posts are there.

There’s a gotcha: No images will be imported (of course, this is a RSS file after all) and no tags will be imported (sounds fishy on behalf of RSS importer, maybe a bug). As to why I did it… well, let’s say I wasn’t satisfied with Ghost and its dashboard leaves more to be desired. I wasn’t planning to spend the next hours writing an importer because honestly I don’t have many posts, and the hours spent wasn’t going to cut it either.
