Blogger Importer Extended


Inspired by the good work done on Blogger Importer, this plugin tries to fill the gap including import for pages, a theme-friendly formatting conversion, compatibility with Blogger 301 Redirect plugin and more over.

Blogger Importer Extended can:

  • Import posts
  • Import pages
  • Import tags
  • Import comments
  • Import images
  • Import links
  • Convert formatting
  • Preserve slugs


  1. Due to Google APIs daily quota limitations the importer can be unavailable, try later.
  2. Due to Google policies, Blogger API v3 are only accessible through manually approved web services, so, any imported content (posts, pages, comments, etc…) go through our web service, only public contents are processed, no private data, no anything else.


  • Authorization
  • Blog list
  • Importing options
  • Importing process
  • Author assignment


  1. Upload the blogger-importer-extended folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Tools > Import > Blogger Importer Extended


Installation Instructions

The importer stopped unexpectedly, why?

The importer can stop for several reasons, most frequently reasons are:

  • Restart: when you refresh the browser page 2 or more import processes can be together active, so, BIE waits for the first one finish its work.
  • Timeout: the browser, a proxy, or something else, breaks the import process for some reason, usually a timeout.
  • Quota exceeded: BIE uses the Google Blogger APIs, these grant a limited number of requests per day and per second, if the quota is exceeded, the importer stops.


Fantástico! Espetacular!

Eu tranferi mais de 6200 postagens, com mais de 8000 imagens!!! O programa parou 3 vezes e reiniciou sozinho – basta esperar o tempo indicado que ele reinicia sozinho – continuando a tarefa de transferir as postagens.

Espetacular!! Fiz um teste com o Blogger Importer original (importando 5 postagens) e com este (também importando 5 postagens de um outro site) para ver a diferença.

O Blogger Importer Extended fez tudo corretamente. Importou as postagens, com todas as divs, classes, (pra quem usa html nas postagens) tudo intacto. Coisa que o original não faz. No fim, não precisei editar portagem nenhuma. Fantástico!!


great blogger migration tool

I used this plugin to move nearly 1000 blog posts, several thousand photos & comments and several pages over to WordPress. I had no issues.

It worked perfectly

Hey wp lovers out there, this blogger 2 wp works just fine. remember, there’s no black magic this is a result of good dev doing the good for us, sometimes you need to apply some effort as well. overall this plugin has saved me a lot of time
my wp version is 4.8.2


We had a nightmare trying to import a Blogger blog with RewardStyle scripts in it. The default WP Blogger Importer was stripping out all of the scripts. Tried a few other methods, either the same result or something worse, ha. Searched EVERYTHING to find people with similar issues, but all results were posts talking about the correct way to include JS in WP – WE GET IT…seriously, there are soooo many posts about that ha.

Anyway, this plugin did it ALLLLLL. Posts, inline scripts, photos, pages, comments…perfection. So easy. One “time out” but it resumed at the end of the countdown when it said it would.


Great stuff! Worked perfectly with WordPress 4.8.1 – imported almost 3000 posts with their images.

Great plugin!

I just imported a blog of over 6000(!) posts to a local (XAMPP) WordPress site.
The export XML of Blogger was too big (64MB) for Blogger Importer, so I tried Blogger Importer Extended and it really saved my day! (That’s how long it took for the import to complete, but who cares if it does what no other plugin can do!)
Downside: the plugin doesn’t import categories, so now I have too re-categorise >6000 posts…
So if there will be an update to this plugin, please consider importing categories too.
