Support » Installing WordPress » Import From Blogger

  • When I click import to import all of my posts on my blogger blog it says importing 1/103 and then it stops and the button changes to set authors. Why can’t I import from Blogger?

  • Does anyone have an answer for this? I don’t know what to do.

    I am having the same issue. Publishing is set to a blogspot address.

    Grrr…. I’m getting the same thing.

    Same problem here and the blogger blog is set to a blogspot address

    1 – continue to go through the process. Even if it is just ‘1’. Click import.

    When it is finished, check to see how many posts were imported.

    And repeat the process, several times if necessary. WP will not create duplicates – it will skip them.

    At least that is what I did and it worked for me.

    Users of WordPress 2.2 and above can import from Blogger. Earlier versions cannot import from Blogger because “New Blogger” was released by Google, invalidating all the old importers. Only WordPress 2.2 and later has support for “New Blogger”.

    If you haven’t already, you must be using New Blogger and a Google Account on Blogger. If you are still using Old Blogger, the importer will not work.

    I’m using 2.7.1 and having the same problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I am using New Blogger and am getting the same problem. I have tried everything I can on the Blogger end. I hosted on my own domain, moved it to a blogspot address, even exported and then tried to import the file. No luck. Am thinking that importing from Blogger won’t work. Wonder if I can export to another blog site, import there, then try to import into WordPress. Seems like a lot of work – anybody else found a workaround?

    I also have the same problem. Trying to import from Blogger to a 2.7.1 WP installation.

    Same exact problem here. Click on import and it says it imports 1 of hundreds of posts and one comment, then button changes to assign authors. It isn’t really importing anything though.

    Been searching for a solution and none are it. Found an idea to import blogger into a account then export and import, but my doesn’t show an import/export option under tools, even though I’m the admin.

    I’m having the same problem…. Any Ideas how to fix.

    I am using New Blogger with a Google Account.
    I am using WordPress 2.7.1
    I am using Mac OS 10.5.6
    I am using Firefox 3.0.9

    It stops importing after 1/476 (posts) 1/413 (comments)
    I get the Set authors button, and click on that

    There are two columns. Under Blogger Username there is nothing. No input field to type in, no pull-down menu to choose from.

    Under WordPress Login is the one login I set up, so a pull-down menu of one option. I click on Save Changes, even though there is nothing changed.

    I am directed to Edit Posts, where there are no posts. Nothing was imported. (And before I started the process, I deleted the Hello World post)

    However, there are two blank anonymous comments dated 11/30/1999 at 12:00 am. in response to # (which of course is a non-existent post).

    If I go back to the Import section, I am immediately taken to Set Authors, which looks and behaves exactly as before.

    I think that about covers it.
    Any suggestions?

    The advice on another thread to

    import into a blog
    export in WordPress format
    then import into your self-hosted WordPress
    and then delete blog

    When I try to import my blogger’s posts.
    It says that it cannot access the blog (my blogspot).
    The username and password are 100% correct.

    It also gives me an error code:
    Connection refused (111)

    When I try to do the import in blog trick it also says
    “Cannot access the blog”

    What is wrong? Am I doing something wrong. I really hope this can be fixed or else I am losing 323 posts.

    Here’s what I’m getting from Google on trying to import to my account.
