Blogger import - labels to tags instead of categories? (3 posts)

    Hi there - I'm working to convert a blog from blogger to WP. I've been using the blogger "Labels" as tags, but of course, the (otherwise fabulous) WP importer brings them in as categories. I'm sure there's a way to change this in wp-admin/import/blogger.php, but i can't quite figure it out. I've looked around for plugins or hacks, but can't find anything. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I had the same problem. Here is what I did.
    Log-in to PHPMyadmin
    click SQL button to open SQL dialog box
    Replace 'SELECT * FROM wp_term_taxonomy WHERE 1' or what ever with

    UPDATE wp_term_taxonomy SET taxonomy = replace(taxonomy,"category","post_tag")

    Click Go button

    This will change all Blogger's label from category to Tag in WordPress.
