    When I click import to import all of my posts on my blogger blog it says importing 1/103 and then it stops and the button changes to set authors. Why can't I import from Blogger?

    1 - continue to go through the process. Even if it is just '1'. Click import.

    When it is finished, check to see how many posts were imported.

    And repeat the process, several times if necessary. WP will not create duplicates - it will skip them.

    At least that is what I did and it worked for me.

    Users of WordPress 2.2 and above can import from Blogger. Earlier versions cannot import from Blogger because "New Blogger" was released by Google, invalidating all the old importers. Only WordPress 2.2 and later has support for "New Blogger".

    If you haven't already, you must be using New Blogger and a Google Account on Blogger. If you are still using Old Blogger, the importer will not work.

    I am using New Blogger and am getting the same problem. I have tried everything I can on the Blogger end. I hosted on my own domain, moved it to a blogspot address, even exported and then tried to import the file. No luck. Am thinking that importing from Blogger won't work. Wonder if I can export to another blog site, import there, then try to import into WordPress. Seems like a lot of work - anybody else found a workaround?

    Same exact problem here. Click on import and it says it imports 1 of hundreds of posts and one comment, then button changes to assign authors. It isn't really importing anything though.

    Been searching for a solution and none are it. Found an idea to import blogger into a wordpress.com account then export and import, but my wordpress.com doesn't show an import/export option under tools, even though I'm the admin.

    I am using New Blogger with a Google Account.
    I am using WordPress 2.7.1
    I am using Mac OS 10.5.6
    I am using Firefox 3.0.9

    It stops importing after 1/476 (posts) 1/413 (comments)
    I get the Set authors button, and click on that

    There are two columns. Under Blogger Username there is nothing. No input field to type in, no pull-down menu to choose from.

    Under WordPress Login is the one login I set up, so a pull-down menu of one option. I click on Save Changes, even though there is nothing changed.

    I am directed to Edit Posts, where there are no posts. Nothing was imported. (And before I started the process, I deleted the Hello World post)

    However, there are two blank anonymous comments dated 11/30/1999 at 12:00 am. in response to # (which of course is a non-existent post).

    If I go back to the Import section, I am immediately taken to Set Authors, which looks and behaves exactly as before.

    I think that about covers it.
    Any suggestions?

    The advice on another thread to

    import into a WordPress.com blog
    export in WordPress format
    then import into your self-hosted WordPress
    and then delete wordpress.com blog
    worked.

    When I try to import my blogger's posts.
    It says that it cannot access the blog (my blogspot).
    The username and password are 100% correct.

    It also gives me an error code:
    Connection refused (111)

    When I try to do the import in wordpress.com blog trick it also says
    "Cannot access the blog"

    What is wrong? Am I doing something wrong. I really hope this can be fixed or else I am losing 323 posts.

    Here's what I'm getting from Google on trying to import to my wordpress.com account.

    Access Request

    The page you have requested cannot be displayed. Another site was requesting access to your Google Account, but sent a malformed request. Please contact the site that you were trying to use when you received this message to inform them of the error. A detailed error message follows:

    The site "http://wordpress.com" has not been registered.

    Same issues. Importing from blogger is not possible right now as the workaround is not functioning.

    I played around in the wordpress code and changed $parser = xml_parser_create_ns(); to $parser = xml_parser_create(); around line 920 in blogger.php

    Not sure if that helps the wordpress people make an official solution, but it is allowing me to import again.

    @schmidt00 I did attempt to apply your fix but to no avail. When I try to click import it then gives me another button of continue, once click it continues to say continue going no where.

    All, I too am having the same problems, stops importing after 1/1950 posts, and 1//2005 comments. I tried to do it via the RSS import by I get a memory allocation error, so that's not working either. I really want to move over, but as of now I seem stuck in a no win situation. HELP!!

    Same problem here, too.

    Schmidt00's solution worked for me.

    In /wordpress/wp-admin/import/blogger.php find (around line 919):

    $parser = xml_parser_create_ns();

    Change it to:

    $parser = xml_parser_create();

    Apparently the developers changed the name of this function and forgot to update it in all dependent modules.

    So has this problem been fixed. If I can't import my blog from Blogger to WordPress then there's no use to install WordPress. I have over a thousand post in my Blog. No way I can start my Blog over.

    If this is a problem the Admins should let the public know. Remember before installing WordPress you have pay for hosting. If you can't import from Blogger don't let people waste their money thinking they can.

    Could not connect to https://www.google.com

    There was a problem opening a secure connection to Google. This is what went wrong:

    Unable to find the socket transport "ssl" - did you forget to enable it when you configured PHP? (0)

    Using 2.8.4 and having the "Connection timed out (110)" problem. It looks like they've rolled schmitt00's code into the release, 'coz it already has the line "$parser = xml_parser_create();" but it still doesn't work.

    Same problem here, I get the

    "Connection timed out (110)

    I tried the http://blogger2wordpress.appspot.com/

    When uploading my XML file it says..

    Choose a file from your computer: (Maximum size: 1.46484375MB)

    my file ends up being a 1.7MB

    And I keep getting this error message!

    The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini.

    For those showing 0|0 - you need to change your publishing settings to be published at whatever.blogspot.com and it will work when you try to do the import.

    Hope that helps.

    I kept experiencing import hangs and different points in both posts and comments.

    I finally succeeded however, when I went through blogger, used the export feature in blogger, then converted that file with the http://blogger2wordpress.appspot.com/ tool. Then I could import the resulting file into wordpress. Several extra steps but I got past being stuck.
