Plugin Directory

Blogger Importer

Imports posts, images, comments, and categories (blogger tags) from a Blogger blog then migrates authors to WordPress users.

  1. Upload the blogger-importer folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

Prerequisites

The importer connects your server to the blogger server to copy across the posts. For this to work you need to have connectivity from the server to the internet and also have at least one of the remote access protocols enabled, e.g. curl, streams or fsockopen. You can use the Core Control plugin to test if these are working correctly. The importer connects to Google over a secure connection so OpenSSL needs to be enabled on your server. The importer uses the SimplePie classes to read and process the data from blogger so you will need the php-xml module installed on your webserver.

How to use

  1. Blogger Importer is available from the WordPress Tools->Import screen.
  2. Press Authorise
  3. If you are not already logged into Google you will be asked to login
  4. You will be asked to grant WordPress access to your Blogger information, to continue press Grant Access
  5. You will be presented with a list of all your blogs
  6. Select the appropriate blog and press the import button
  7. Wait whilst the posts, comments and images are imported
  8. Press the Set Authors button
  9. Select the appropriate mapping for the authors
  10. Review categories, posts and comments

You can now remove the importer plugin if you no longer need to use it.
