Importing <$BlogItemUrl$> Tag Data from Blogger (3 posts)

    My blogger.com blog made heavy use of the <$BlogItemUrl$> tag. The WordPress import tool grabbed my message and title content fine, but it dropped the URL info contained in <$BlogItemUrl$>.

    I pretty much can't move away from Blogger without being able to capture that data.

    Is there any way to make WordPress import the <$BlogItemUrl$> data? I'll worry about using it later...

    Thanks,
    Kevin

    In which WP field do you want to store this information?

    My site is cryptogon.com. Most of my stories include links to external news stories; every time you see a ':.'. That's a link to a story. Sadly, I have thousands of entries like this.

    Honeslty, I don't have the slightest clue of how I could make use of those data in WP, even if they could be parsed.

    Custom fields?

    Ideally, it would be nice if I could get a link at the bottom of each post that just said 'Source' or something like that, with the URLs contained in the $BlogItemUrl$ tag....

    Thanks,
    Kevin
