Post comments not imported from Blogger (2 posts)

    Hello,
    I am trying to find a method for bringing in all of the comments from a Blogger blog. 3121 / 3121 posts came just fine, but only 50 / 47924 comments were transferred. I am aware of a work-around that people have been using ( http://www.shloemi.com/2012/04/import-blogger-to-wordpress-3-3-x/ ), but the site is already live with new posts and comments so I don't want to risk introducing duplicate posts for everything that was already imported.

    Any suggestion on how this can be addressed? The # 50 leads me to believe an unhandled error was thrown near the end of the first comment loop (~line 517 of blogger-importer.php in v0.4) since the max limit is set to 50.

    Thanks. Cheers.

    When testing the 0.5 version one technique I used was to create a different user that I could then set as the importer user. This allows you to see the posts you've imported and delete them.

    The importer should avoid duplicated posts and the 0.5 version should import comments ok.

    If you are at all worried then I'd recommend using a copy of your blog on a test site to do the imports.
