[resolved] Importing from new blogger beta (7 posts)

    Hi, I am using WordPress 2.0.5 and am trying to import from my blogspot blog. However, I recently upgraded it to the new blogger beta, which means the login screen is at a different url. I am not sure if this affects the wordpress importer, but when I try to import I get the following message:
    Login failed. Please re-enter your username and password.

    Just another FYI note, the new beta blogger login url is https://beta.blogger.com and it requires you to use your google login, i.e. bleh@gmail.com

    Thanks.

    I found the answer in this thread:

    I used anorling's suggested method combined with Otto42's incremental suggestions.

    So basically I imported the posts (no comments) 100 at a time using the RSS feed and just did this a total of 3 times to get all of my posts.

    However, if you have comments you want to keep, this doesn't resolve the issue. Blogger have now forced everyone to their new version, including having to create gmail accounts. Their 'forcing people' is going to both lose people but also make people think they're scared. If they have a good thing why force people?

    There is now a plugin that will import from New Blogger to WordPress:
