    Hi

    I'm trying to import my Blogware blog and I'm having major problems. I've tried adding this script http://chris.pirillo.com/download/blogware.zip I found to the wp-content/plugins directory but it's not appearing in my admin console.

    I've searched the forums and the link for the Blogware instructions http://codex.wordpress.org/Importing_Content#Blogwarefrom the 'Importing Content' help section goes to a dead page.

    can anyone help with either method?

    Thanks in advance

    Hey there, Everton!

    I'm glad I stumbled upon your post. I'm having problems, too, and I used your Chris Pirillo script -- and it worked beautifully.

    Here's where the .php file goes:

    wordpress\wp-admin\import

    It showed up as the last entry on the page after hitting the "Import" tab.

    In Firefox, I found that I receive "script timeout" errors that offer "Stop" and "Continue" -- if you're using this browser or MSFT's IE gives you a similar error, keep hitting continue.

    hope that helps,
