Importing from Blogger Confusion... (5 posts)

    I am not clear about this instruction for importing from Blogger:

    Go to the Templates. Replace your existing template with this line (copy and paste):
    <Blogger><wordpresspost><$BlogItemDateTime$>|||<$BlogItemAuthorNickname$>|||<$BlogItemBody$>|||<$BlogItemNumber$>|||<$BlogItemSubject$></Blogger>

    Do I add this code somewhere in my template, or do DELETE all the code in the existing template and add only this line?

    Please eloborate and thanks.

    This will not work...blooger sends the archieve files over as html, not php. I changed the archieve file in blogger to 'wordpress.php' as stated. The page loads completely unformatted.

    what is the problem?

    thanks

    I followed the steps, and my blogger refreshed 50%, and then stalled. There then was an error message saying that ftp login had failed. Does anyone know what I did wrong?

    I'm also having problems with importing from Blogger. I followed the bluechronicles tutorial to the tee and still can't see any of my Blogger posts or archives. I verified that I see ther 2004_*_*_wordpress.php files, but not sure what I am doing wrong. The tutorial says to leave the directory blank when using the file wordpress.php for the archive. Can anyone help?
