    I've done a search and read through many posts but still don't quite understand how to import my files from blogger to WP. How exactly do i rrun the script? Where and what is my b2? I read the only read-me file i could find. Any help is appreciated.

    WordPress was b2. So references to 'b2' can be replaced by 'WordPress'.

    Correct. I just replaced all references to b2 and cafelog in import-blogger.php with WordPress. The next nightly will have the new nomenclature.

    Ok, so i replace everything you said. But how do i go about running the script if i am to do so? Or do i just follow the directions in the import file?

    garybibb, the importer works just fine. In the text that you can read, read WordPress where it says b2, and run the importer.

    Ok so i ran the script and was following along until i came to the where it says make blogger publish your files into the directory where wordpress resides. how do i do that in blogger? I don't see anywhere to change that setting. Also i see no where to change the archive filename to cafelog.php. Thanks for all the help so far.

    Ok, i am begining to think i am losing brain cells. I now get this error message:
    001 java.net.ConnectException: Connection refused
    I don't get it. I went to where 2fargon told me to go, read everything, went and ran the import script, i think i did everything it said. But i still get nothing. Any ideas?

    I was wrong, I appologize. At the bottom of the page it said the pages had been imported, and I ditzed out and didn't look at the logs, which had SQL error after error...

    How did you get them to finally import? I can change the dates if they're out of order, so that's no problem for me. I just want to get them in there.

    when you finally have the files on your ftp server all you have to do is click "OK" at the end of the importer script.

    Ok, this is what I get. I followed the directions exactly, so I don't know where it went wrong. Could someone look at this page and tell me what happened please, and how to correct it?
    Thanks so much!

    I have about 1700 posts archived in (new) blogger.com, tried the procedure yesterday and it didn't work. The scripts says everything's ok, but I don't see my posts on WP. I'll try it again today, but I already think that the import script may have to be adapted.

    Succesful import from blogger just following instructions in the wp import utility.
    Once u make the changes in blogger, all the files(archives) and archive index (wordpress.php) will be in ur new wp folder (if u dont see them u make a mistake, check again the settings in blogger and republish ur blog), once u got them, going 3rd starge will cleany import ur post into wp

    All of the files were in the wp folder as they were supposed to be. But they still did not show up on the "edit" page, as I assumed they would. If the import worked, how do I know? And if it didn't work, I want to know the exact steps: WHICH template do I put the code in, and do I only replace the blogger code or the entire template code (including html)?
