    Brad,
    I am currently (if a bit slowly) working on a version of the blogger importer that handles images.

    You can try the following plugins.

    Thanks Andy.

    How about WordPress.com to WordPress.org?

    Is there a plugin that exports images from WordPress.org?

    Considering you can’t access the WordPress.com servers, how would you export the images so they display after closing down the WordPress.com site?

    I believe the “Blogger Image Import” mentioned above can pull files from other servers. If you know the name of the server with the source files then you enter that in the box and pull the files across.

    A very rough beta version of the importer with images can be found at

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/4010

    I can pretty much guarentee it won’t bring over all images and it also generates some “blank” images but for those who are interested or want to help with testing it’s available for review.

    There is a new BETA version that processes the images over at http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/4010/blogger-importer.zip

    Thanks

    Brad, did that version work for you? How many posts/images did you pull across? Any comments or issues?

    Hi Andy

    Worked well and i wrote a post about. Handy tool.

    Appreciate you guys devloping this tool. http://wpsites.net/best-plugins/new-blogger-importer-plugin-also-imports-image-files-to-wordpress/

    I only tested it on 2 posts as a demo so i could write the tutorial.

    If i pick up a job to do this, i will let you know if there’s any issues on larger imports.

    Do you also have one for WordPress.com image files?

    I’ve just tried the version linked on trac (http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/4010/blogger-importer.zip) but it stops every 25 posts and I have to hit continue. I’d really rather be able to hit “Import” and go away for a cup of coffee than be tied to my desk watching a massive import go in chunks of 25…

    Hi Gillespiaza,
    there are two settings in the file blogger-importer.php that affect this. Firstly is the batch size which is not surprisingly 25, I’d actually suggest you don’t change that one.

    define(‘MAX_RESULTS’, 25);

    There is a second setting which is the number of seconds before that continue button appears. It’s something that’s been there since the early versions of the plugin, I suspect the idea is that it does not overload google or your server. However you could change that to say 300 which would give you plenty of time for a coffee.

    define(‘MAX_EXECUTION_TIME’, 20);

    Brad,
    I’m not sure about larger imports as my largest is about 350 posts and about 800 images.
    I’m afraid it does not work for the WordPress.com importer but it should be reasonably straight forward for a coder to pick up the files and apply the same principles to that there are still a couple of issues to work out but hopefully there will be a fix for those later today.
    Cheers,
    Andy

    I tried using the beta today and it did not work. Version 0.5 works fine at importing posts. However when I tried to run 0.6 I get the following error on the import page:
    Warning: Division by zero in /…/wp-content/plugins/blogger-importer/blogger-importer.php on line 617
    Pressing the [import] button does nothing.

    Any ideas?

    The good news is that I know what that error is and have a fix for it in my latest dev release. The bad news is that I’ve managed to introduce a few other bugs that I’m trying to fix before I upload a new version.

    The line 617 reads:

    $c1 = ($blog['comments_done'] / $blog['total_comments']) * 100;

    so if you swap that with:

    if ($blog['total_comments']==0) {
       $c1 = 100;
    } else {
       $c1 = ($blog['comments_done'] / $blog['total_comments']) * 100;
    }

    Then that should sort you out.

    Mercifull that issue should be fixed in the latest beta.

    http://core.trac.wordpress.org/attachment/ticket/4010/blogger-importer.zip

    Gillespiaza, I’ve seen similar issues today when the wp_debug flag is turned on. I’m working on fixing that but if you could let me know that setting is turned on for you and can you also try again with the latest beta?

    Hi Andy,

    First of all, thanks all envolved on this implementation. Very handy!!
    I just tried this yesterday, but for some reason the importing stops in the middle of the process.

    I tried to find out what was causing the problem. Using firebug I found a message about a class that was not found, called “FB” on line 1112 under blogger-importer.php…

    line 1112 = FB::log($newcontent);

    Any help, advice?
    Thanks in advance
