How Can I Get the "RSS Importer" and/or the "Improved RSS Importer" to work? (3 posts)

    (1) I have an RSS feed w/ Google feedburner.
    (2) I exported an opml file of my feed.
    (3) I saved it on my computer.
    (4) I installed the "RSS Importer" plugin.
    (5) I clicked "Import", then clicked "RSS Importer"
    (6) I choose the opml file
    (7) I clicked the "Upload and Import" button.
    (8) A screen shows up w/ the following message: "All Done. Have Fun".
    (9) I clicked on "All Posts" only to see nothing!

    (10) I installed the "Improved RSS Importer" plugin.
    (11) I clicked "Import", then clicked "Improved RSS Importer"
    (12) I choose the opml file
    (13) I clicked the "Upload and Import" button.
    (14) A screen shows up w/ the following message: "All Done. Have Fun".
    (15) I clicked on "All Posts" only to see NOTHING!

    Am I missing something? These plugins have been downloaded thousands of times, yet there are few complaints about them in the forum. This leads me to believe that lots of people have been successful in using them.

    Can someone please explain what I'm doing wrong?

    Thanks.

    I figured out the answer. I'll share it here for anyone who comes to this thread in the future w/ the same question:

    (1)Go to: http://devtacular.com/utilities/atomtorss/

    (2) Enter your feedburner feed and click "Convert"

    (3) Save the results somewhere.

    (4) **Within wordpress Admin, go to Tools, Import, RSS

    (5) Select File recently saved.

    (6) Click Import

    (7) "All Done. Have Fun."
