Blogger Import Problems (7 posts)

    I ran the import for Blogger. It imports all my posts, but only shows that there are 471 comments when there are really over 1300 comments.

    When I click import, it shows all posts were imported and all 471 comments were imported.

    I have tried to re-import but then I end up with duplicate posts.

    Is there any way to get the rest of the comments to move over?

    Any ideas what I should do?

    Thanks!

    I am having the same problem. None of my three strategies have worked. Hoping someone chimes in with an answer.

    I've found the best way to move from Blogger to WordPress is to export your entire blog from Blogger then use the Blogger to WordPress converter here:

    http://blogger2wordpress.appspot.com/

    And finally import the WordPress XML file you get into your WordPress blog.

    That convertor is great if your Blogger export file is less than 2MB. As mine is about 9MB it chokes and fails.

    Anyone have another solution?

    I could use some help on this one too. I have a client with a Blogger system of over 1540 comments and 1168 posts. The files are huge, so some of the conversion tools are not going to help. I have done the Blogger - WordPress.com - WordPress.org method, but that didn't work either. We found weird things happening where comments were not showing up in the blog, even though they were there in the Admin side.

    I'm pulling my hair out...there has to be a tool for large/established blogs to move from one system to another.

    I had everything ready to move my blog from blogger to wordpress, but when i wanted to import it went wrong. 203 posts and 83 comments were showed in the WP import function. The post-numbrt id okay, but more than 800 comments were missing.
    Yesterday, three days after my first attempt to import i tried an import again -- 203 posts and 59 comments. Another 24 comments vanished...

    What is going wrong?

    The export from blogger is no solution. It gives me a 5.1 MB file which fails at http://blogger2wordpress.appspot.com/

    I also am having this problem, has anyone not found a solution? I can't use the converters, mine weighs in at about 5 megs.
