Blogger import not working

  1. I'm trying to import a Blogger blog into my WordPress blog, but the import isn't working.

    1. I have no Import button to click so that it will automatically pull my Blogger posts into WordPress.

    2. When I try and do a manual import, I can upload the XML file and I get the "we're processing your import" message (I can't recall exactly what it says) and then ... nothing.

    A) How long does it take to import?
    B) Once it's imported, where do I look for the posts? Under "All Posts"?

    The blog I need help with is blansgirl.wordpress.com.

  2. A It depends on how many files are in the queue.
    B Yes

  3. Hi there,

    I just checked the Blogger importer for your blog, under Tools > Import > Blogger in your dashboard. We tried to make a connection to your Blogger account to automagically import your posts, but we weren't able to connect to your account. You can click the "Clear all information" button to start over with that Blogger import tool.

    However, I also checked your blog posts and it looks like the manual import was successful. You can find all of your blog posts under Posts > All Posts in your dashboard. If you have any trouble with that, or if you're missing posts, please let me know and I'll be happy to help further. :)

  4. Hi rachelmcr,

    So the import worked ... yet I don't see the posts under All Posts. I still only show the 102 posts I've had on my blog. I must be missing a step or something. Any helpful hints?

    Thanks!

  5. Hi there,

    I see 113 posts on your blog now, rather than 102, so it's possible that the imported posts just needed a little more time to process before showing up. If the imported posts still aren't all showing up, though, I can look into it for you. :)

    Can you let me know the titles of one or two posts that weren't imported? That will help me investigate what happened.

  6. Hi rachelmcr,

    Thanks for responding and please just chalk up that last issue as a big fact "DOH!" I'd been looking for posts that were listed without a category and lo and behold!, my imported posts were categorized. I've fixed it all now so I'm set. Thanks a million for your help!

  7. You're very welcome! I'm so glad all your posts are there. (I took a peek at your posts and cracked up when I read your latest post about potlucks and hostess gifts, by the way. I know I'm guilty of asking the very same thing when I get a dinner invitation — even though I completely agree with you about that!)

    Happy blogging! :)
