I have content from elsewhere that I would like to insert as a post in Wordpress and then associate with an existing category. It is pretty straightforward to insert a new post into the wp_posts table, but I can't seem to figure out how to construct a query to both insert a new post and at the same time associate the post with a category. How would one go about doing this?
If it helps, I am using WordPress 2.8
Use this query:
INSERT INTO wp_posts (post_title,post_content,post_name,post_date,post_date_gmt,post_modified,post_modified_gmt,post_author,post_status) VALUES ('title','text','post_name',now(),now(),now(),now(),1,'publish') INSERT INTO wp_term_relationships (object_id,term_taxonomy_id) VALUES ([the_id_of_above_post],1)
