Archiving your Xanga

If you need a little help archiving:


On the top right side of your screen you should see your user name, click it,then click Settings.


Now on the left hand side of the screen you should see a long menu. Towards the bottom – click on Xanga Archives



Click the button that says UPDATE YOUR ARCHIVES. This may take a couple of hours. Come back later.


Once it’s done it should look like the image below.

|Click on the file and save it to your computer.

You should be able to download anything that says *.zip.




Comments on: "Archiving your Xanga" (15)

  1. Thank you!  I will do this as I leave the shop and let it go tonight and see if it works.  If I can’t get it I may just let you do it!  ðŸ™‚

  2. Ok, I have it going!  It ways it is submitted anyway.  Thanks again!

  3. Oh thank you so much!!

  4. Thanks for reading. The older ones are better. A lot of people can’t keep up with my writing, so thank you. 🙂

  5. I’ve done every thing down to the file. Where is that? and How do I do it? Thanks for all this help.

  6. Ok, I did it and now that I have it what do I do with it?  lol  I have to move it somewhere to keep it?  When I click on things it brings up the posts but in a temp internet page.  

  7. @sapphire_sabotage – do you blog anywhere else? I would like to follow it when xanga closes it’s last server.

  8. @GoodGuyTheBoss – what browser are you using? Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome?

  9. @GrannyHappyNanny – Right now it’s just a file, like any other document file. It’s just using your browser as a viewer. As far as I know, now it’s just something for you to save and look at, unless you want to do a lot of cutting and pasting and put it into a new blog site.There is a way to upload the wordpress file into a new wordpress blog ( is me) but I can’t help you with that because my archive is not working correctly and won’t give me pictures or the wordpress file. Very frustrating!

  10. @endlesssummer128 – @AncoraImparo – @to_be_creative – You’re welcome, you’re welcome, you’re welcome! Let me know if there is anything else I can do to help. Hard to lose everything isn’t it?

  11. Cool!  Thanks so much!  I thought it was all going to be gone forever!  Now I’m wishing I would have took the time to get rid of some protected stuff first.  Not sure where it is but really don’t want anyone to see it.  lol   Now, is there anyway to delete the whole xanga so they don’t transfer it anywhere else?

  12. @GrannyHappyNanny – Not with any certainty.  You can close your Xanga and I would assume they won’t bother to move it. I know if it was my server I would not move accounts that were closed.

  13. So cool Tracy is better than the support link. 🙂
