This is great! But how long should it take to generate the export file? It's been 'generating' for almost an hour now. Is that normal?

it may be running into an error if the file is massive or you could have a browser addon that could be causing a hiccup would me the most common reasons

Fantastic! One of the best "how to's" I've ever seen on YT. Only wish it showed how to switch over to a WP site while using the SAME host as I'm looking at doing. Thanks!

Yes, you can. I found this link, as I have to do this with only "one" of my Weebly sites due to a client request. You can give it a try. Good luck. 🙂smallbusiness.chron.com/convert-weebly-theme-wordpress-44850.html

It seems the error you might be getting is because you're clicking on the link instead of right clicking and selecting Save As for the file.
