    I'm trying to port my blog entrys from my blogger blog http://brew-blog.blogspot.com/ to my new install of WordPress on my own hosting at http://www.brewpse.co.uk/blog/

    I can't get wordpress to import from google's blogger, I follow the tools>import>blogger and I get redirected to google to log in. However I then get the following error from google.

    "The page you have requested cannot be displayed. Another site was requesting access to your Google Account, but sent a malformed request. Please contact the site that you were trying to use when you received this message to inform them of the error. A detailed error message follows:
    The site "http://co.uk" has not been registered."

    I have tryed this from two different internet connections and in safari, firefox and opera and get the same response.

    I have also tryed a number methods to import my Blogger xml file into wordpress all with no luck.

    Surely there has got to be an easy way to make this work, what am I missing

    Hi there. I used to have a blogger.com account and I was able to export it to wordpress.com without any problem. I actually wish right now that I have to import coming from blogger because right now I have problem importing from wordpress.com to wordpress.org (isn't that ironic).

    Anyway, I don't know if you've done this but here's what I did from blogger to wp.
    1. blogger: export file by saving to local machine (i.e., your computer)
    2. wordpress: import file by uploading the xml file that you just saved from blogger.com

    Hope this helps.

    I have tried that but i get the following error

    Invalid file

    Please upload a valid WXR (WordPress eXtended RSS) export file.

    "it seems to be an issue on Google's side"

    It is. They stopped this and the last I heard we are waiting for information from them.

    So is there any way to import from Blogger either direct through google or via the downloaded xml file? Has anybody done a cross refferece of what the tags need to be?

    Right then

    Down load your blog from blogger as a XML file, it took me a few attempts to get it to download correctly

    use http://blogger2wordpress.appspot.com/

    to creat the wxr file then import it into wordpress

    Good times!

    @brewpse I was able to import my blog from blogger to WordPress using the link. thanks.

    But, there is one problem - No comments and tags were imported. How to import comments and tags now?

    this seemed like the most simple & direct method for migration, so I tried it. However, I received this error msg:

    The uploaded file exceeds the upload_max_filesize directive in php.ini

    one other question. when I used the appspot, it created this file:
    wordpress-wxr.xml.html
    Is that the correct nomenclature, or do I need to amend the file name?

    Thanks!
