Blogger Importer

Imports posts, images, comments, and categories (blogger tags) from a Blogger blog then migrates authors to WordPress users.

  1. Upload the blogger-importer folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

Prerequisites

The importer connects your server to the blogger server to copy across the posts. For this to work you need to have connectivity from the server to the internet and also have at least one of the remote access protocols enabled, e.g. curl, streams or fsockopen. You can use the Core Control plugin to test if these are working correctly. The importer connects to Google over a secure connection so OpenSSL needs to be enabled on your server. The importer uses the SimplePie classes to read and process the data from blogger so you will need the php-xml module installed on your webserver.

Preparation

It is strongly recommended that you disable all other plugins and caching during the import.

This will ensure that the information transfers across as smoothly as possible and that posts and comments are correctly transferrred.

How to use

  1. On your Blogger account, visit the Settings->Other page, and locate the "Export Blog" option. This will download an XML file containing your posts and comments.
  2. In WordPress, the Blogger Importer is available from the Tools->Import menu.
  3. Upload the XML file to WordPress.
  4. The posts will be read and you will be given the option to map the authors of the posts appropriately.
  5. Allow the import to finish.
  6. If the import fails halfway, you can simply retry. Already imported posts will be skipped and not duplicated.
