Imports posts, comments, and categories (blogger tags) from a Blogger blog then migrates authors to WordPress users.
Press the clear account information button, then re-connect to blogger and re-import, the importer is designed not to re-import the same posts. If you need to do a full re-import then delete the posts and then empty the trash before re-importing.
Each of the posts loaded is tagged with a meta tags indicating where the posts were loaded from. The permalink will be set to the visible URL if the post was published or the internal ID if it was still a draft or scheduled post
The importer is designed not to overload blogger or your site so only imports in batches and will run for a fixed number of seconds before pausing, the admin screen will refresh every few seconds to show how many it has done so far. Press continue to continue importing posts and comments.
Blogger does not distinguish between tags and categories so you will likely want to review what was imported and then use the categories to tags converter
This importer does not handle blogger pages, you will need to manually transfer them.
The importer will simply load the tags for the images as they appear in your source data, so you will have references to blogspot and picassa based images. If you do not migrate these with a separate tool then these will be lost when you delete your old blogger blog.
No, WordPress and Blogger handle the permalinks differently. However, it is possible to use the redirection plugin to map the old URLs across to the new URLs.
The scheduled posts will be transferred and will be published as specified. However, Blogger and WordPress handle drafts differently, WordPress does not support dates on draft posts so you will need to use a plugin if you wish to plan your writing schedule.
The importer uses the SimplePie classes to process the data, these in turn use a Simplepie_Sanitize class to remove potentially malicious code from the source data.
