Blogger Importer
[resolved] Only imported a small percentage of comments (3 posts)

    I just tried using this, and it only imported a small percentage of the comments. 62 in all, whereas one post has over 130 comments on the original blogger blog (plus many on other posts). Why wont it import them all? Is this a problem with WP 3? or something with the plugin? Is there another plugin that works, or will this one be updated soon?

    A lot of the comments are spam, but its so much easier to clean them up in WP than blogger, so I was hoping to import first, then moderate. Plus, it didn't import any of the valid comments I want to keep.

    Seems like you have fewer number of posts. Try using a Blogger Export File and convert it into WordPress WXR using http://blogger2wordpress.appspot.com This will handle export files upto 1MB in size. Now import this converted file into the WordPress Importer.

    The blogger importer of WordPress mostly fails when there are more number of comments and posts.

    Note: You can use Google Blog Convertors on your local machine to convert files greater than 1 MB

    Ah, that makes sense. I wanted to get it done, and there seemed to be more comments imported when I deleted some. So I went through the very long process of deleting all spam comments while still on blogger (what a pain! why does anyone still use blogger?). Then tried again. With less comments than posts (though I didn't know that was the key) it all worked perfectly and the blog is now running on WP!

    Thanks.
