Support » Plugin: Blogger Importer » Images not imported at all

  • Resolved ambrosa


    I’m running blogger-importer plugin rel. 0.7 into a free hosted WP installation http: // ambrosa . altervista . org

    I wish to import in my fresh WP installation my previous Blospot blog http: // triumphtiger800 . blogspot . com

    As you ca see here your plugin detect fine my Blogger posts and comments, but it NOT detect any image.

    I’ve tried to start the import: it was fine for posts and comments but no image is imported. Into WP imported posts, images are link to blospot site (you can browse yourself).
    This is the result after import: image

    Any idea ?
    Thanks for any suggestion.

    Blogger Importer plugin has standard options:

    // 14/2/2013 switched from global defines to class constants
    // These are used to change the behaviour of the importer from the default.
    const MAX_RESULTS = 25; // How many records per GData query (int)
    const MAX_EXECUTION_TIME = 20; // How many seconds to let the script run (int)
    const STATUS_INTERVAL = 3; // How many seconds between status bar updates (int)
    const IMPORT_IMG = true; // Should we import the images (boolean)
    const REMOTE_TIMEOUT = 5; // How many seconds to wait until google responds (int)
    const LARGE_IMAGE_SIZE = ‘1024’; // The size of large images downloaded (string)
    const POST_PINGBACK = 0; // Turn off the post pingback, set to 1 to re-enabled(bool)
    //N.B. Not all images will be this large and not all will be able to be remapped.

    I’ve tried just now this old plugin:

    Same problem: it don’t import any image from my old Blogger blog.
    Blogger changed something during these days ?

    Blogger Image Import
    Importing a maximum of 10 images
    Posts Processed : 122
    Images Imported : 0 (+ thumbnails)

    Another test trying
    No success

    Agosto 2011: primo test: No images imported – you might want to check whether they still exist!
    Du is megl che uan ? Oh yes !: No images imported – you might want to check whether they still exist!
    Colore: No images imported – you might want to check whether they still exist!

    But they don’t exist in my media library.
    And my media library is writable: I can upload images from my PC withou any problem.

    You could turn on the debug logging and see what errors are occuring when it tries to process the images.
    I think the fact this fails with 3 different plugins might indicate some kind of permissions or other issue with your server but the log should tell more.

    Sorry, I’m a novice in WordPress.
    Do you mean enable WP_DEBUG or something else ?

    It needs to log to file rather than to the screen so check WP_DEBUG, WP_DEBUG_LOG and WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY

    I’ve opened a support ticket within AlterVista provider.
    The problem was provider firewall: it was blocking some Google IP address.
    Now they have correctly opened their firewall and all works fine.

    All image are imported correctly.
