Blogger Importer
It's broken. Google accounts don't authorise (10 posts)

    One of users is trying to import their Blogger blog into a new site on our network.

    When they click the 'Authorise' button, they are presented with this message:

    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://blahblahblah.ac.uk" has not been registered. "

    I have tried doing the same on a single site install (different domain), and get a bit further but ultimately it doesn't work:

    "We were not able to gain access to your account. Try starting over."

    I'm getting a new, but related error. I saw a post on WordPress.com that this was an issue but has been fixed. Please fix the importer for WordPress.org users!

    Hi I am having this problem too. I successfully used the importer in July. Now I can not get the authorization to work (see the error message below). So is there a way to actually "send this info to support" ???? The entire xml file I exported from Blogger is 16.8 MB. I was hoping this would just update the posts and comments for the last two months so we can complete the migration process. Any suggestions appreciated please???

    Authorization failed

    Something went wrong. If the problem persists, send this info to support:
    HTTP/1.0 403 Invalid AuthSub token.
    Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
    Content-Length: 167

    Now the issue that you mentioned above is solved by wordpress.org blogger-importer plugin in new version 0.3. You can now import posts and comments. But I found one more problem after importing posts from blogger into wordpress (added ">" sign in posts title). please check this hope it will help you http://wordpress.org/support/topic/how-to-keep-search-rankings-after-moving-from-blogger

    WP 3.0.1; plugin 0.3

    Same problem as first poster (4 months later).

    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://blahblahblah.com" has not been registered.

    Can we get this fixed, please?

    I'm having the same problem as the original poster too. Does anyone at WP moderate these threads cause I haven't seen a resolution to this problem ANYWHERE!

    Ok... I found an alternative. I opened an account at wordpress.com and registered a free blog. I then tried to import my blogger posts from there and it worked perfectly. From wordpress.com, I have exported the XML file that supports wordpress import.

    But here is also one confusion.

    There is an option in wordpress.com dashboard to upload blogger Exported XML file but there is no such option in my WordPress.org control panel to import a blogger exported XML file. Why is it so?? Also some other options that are available in wordpress.com and not available in wordpress.org dashboard.

    And the question that is most important:

    If I follow the above procedure to import my posts from Blogger>WordPress.com>WordPress.org then how do I redirect my blogger blog to new domain at wordpress.org?? Will I lose all my google rank and web traffic??

    Same here. I'm going INSANE!

    I'm getting the same error: "The page you have requested cannot be displayed. Another site was requesting access to your Google Account, but sent a malformed request. etc" when trying to import my blogspot blog into wordpress.org hosted on my brand-new Bluehost domain. (Registration information is current and correct, despite what Google seems to think.)

    So...I opened an account on wordpress.com (chicsteals.wordpress.com) and imported my Blogspot blog directly (chicsteals.blogspot.com). But the importer changed all of the photos in my posts (all 3000+ photos except 2) to 300px wide, and my original photos are 600px wide. And when I import from wordpress.com to wordpress.org (www.chic-steals.com; by exporting the XML, saving on my desktop, and uploading to wordpress.org) the photos not only stay super-tiny, but ALSO remain on the wordpress.com site and are displayed in the posts (and yes, I did check the box for "include attachments" in the wordpress.org importer).

    I can't use the Bloger2wordpress conversion utility app, since it won't work at all in Firefox, and in Safari it just grinds and grinds and won't load the final converted file - so I guess it's not doing anything either. So I HAVE to import to WordPress.com directly from Blogger.

    Please is there a way to import my Blogger blog directly to wordpress.org that actually WORKS and doesn't mess up the photos? (and destroys the formatting of posts, and de-links videos from posts, which are 2 other things I'm experiencing now).

    (WP 3.0.1; plugin 0.3, hosted on Bluehost.com and after 2 tech support calls to BlueHost they say they have no idea what's wrong with it. Or why my photos are compressed.)

    PLEASE HELP!!!:-....(
