missing posts when importing from blogger (4 posts)

    I recently imported a blogspot blog to WordPress that has posts dating back to January 2009 and going through December 2011. I used this plugin to do the import, and only got posts dating back to June 2009, missing six months' worth of posts (45 posts total).

    When I try to re-import, I can get new comments, but no new posts and then get these errors when I try to "set authors" --
    - - -
    Warning: array_fill() [function.array-fill]: Number of elements must be positive in /home/itrtwmn/public_html/wp-content/plugins/blogger-importer/blogger-importer.php on line 681

    Warning: array_map() [function.array-map]: Argument #3 should be an array in /home/itrtwmn/public_html/wp-content/plugins/blogger-importer/blogger-importer.php on line 681

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/itrtwmn/public_html/wp-content/plugins/blogger-importer/blogger-importer.php on line 692

    I've deleted the plugin and reinstalled it, and still get the same errors. The documentation when installing the plugin does say that this hasn't been updated in 251 days and that it's only compatible through 3.2.1.

    Help? Why am I missing six months' worth of posts? Will there be updates to this plugin that make it compatible to the most current version of WP?

    It has been updated for 3.4. Ensure you empty your trash before re-importing and it should add in any missing posts.

    Hi, I only tried using blogger importer a couple of days ago and suffered the same problems as doniree.

    I was innocently attempting to debug these on a local install when I noticed v0.5.

    So I cleaned out the site (using phpMyAdmin) and tried again. It very nearly worked: 2831 of 2832 posts imported AND 693 of 697 comments.

    I'm going to backup and drop the whole site and try again though. I don't really want to trawl the posts to find out which one's missing.

    Without knowing the characteristics of the skipped posts / comments it's hard to know if they were correctly skipped or not.

    If you scan the code for "Checks for duplicates" then perhaps add some debug code to determine what was skipped? I've been using Firebug to log to the console but you could alternatively write the errors to a file.
