I am certain I have bitten off more than I can chew with things but I am building a new website for my father and am in the process of setting up their library... I have configured Views to display everything fine but only with a selection of the items in the library.
Now I want to import the rest of the items and as their is about 13,000 or so items to import, doing it by hand is obviously not really something I want to do.
I have installed the Migrate Module as my research seems to suggest that this is by far the best way to import this many items. My problem is that I am not yet a proficient developer and so not sure how to actually set this up and use it.
I have found a number of sites that seem to run through migrating from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7 but i have all the items I need in an xml file.
Is there an idiot`s guide for a non-proficient developer to using the migrate module with an xml file so I can import all the remaining items into the content type I have already set up for these?
