Blogger Switch

  1. Please help me!! I am in Blogger Beta (now Blogger). Since Blogger Beta is now Blogger, and the WordPress importer for Blogger says no Blogger Beta, but now Blogger Beta is Blogger, WordPress needs to update it!!

  2. G'morning
    Have you sent your request for the wordpress staff to be assigned this undertaking into staff via a feedback? There is a feedback button on the top right hand corner of any of your blog pages that you can use for this purpose. However, I'm sure you can understand that it would not be reasonable to expect staff to drop everything and do this virtually over night during the holiday season, right?
    Many other Blogger escapees have imported their blogs to wordpress.com. This thread from the forum search box may be of interest to you http://wordpress.com/forums/search.php?q=import+blogger+beta

  3. G'Day to you too, mate.
    FYI I did send it...
    I read other threads explaining the same thing, but i still don't get it.

  4. Ahhh... what part don't you understand? Maybe we can find another Blogger escapee who will guide you through the process. I myself escaped and cut and pasted all my blog contents into my blog here.

  5. Oh... I'm sure you remember this thread. Quote @ drmike : "- Go back to your Blogger beta site and bump up your RSS feed to a number greater that the number of posts that you have on your Blogger site."

    I have NO IDEA HOW YOU "bump" up an RSS feed.

    But still, my next part. I'm very new at WordPress, and I can't import Blogger Beta (now just Blogger).

    Also, from a different thread: Quote @ Podz: We do not have an importer for Blogger beta.

    Because it's beta they can change the code any time they want - it would be impossible to keep up with and we could break things. If they stop their changes we could consider a new importer but until then it's just not feasible to create code . Sorry. "

    Since Beta has settled to original Blogger (with new features), shouldn't they now be making an importer?

  6. Seeing as I have already been yelled at in Support for this by someone else....

    Since Beta has settled to original Blogger
    That was less than 24 hours ago.

    with new features
    I'm sure we've had most of those here....

    shouldn't they now be making an importer?
    It's less than 24 hours. We would prefer to release code than has been completely tested so we know it works and does not harm blogs. That takes a bit longer since google only finished their own code less than a day ago.

    And it is the holidays.....

    OOPS! It seems Mark was typing at the same time I was.
    IMO your best bet is to move into your new blog here and start posting while patiently waiting for staff to get to this. :)
    I'm also going to include threads to some basic information for you that will highlight the differences between wordpress.com and Blogger. http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/05/07/javascript-can-i-use-that-on-my-blog/

    @Mark
    Yelling. Someone has yelled at you about this. Well, just let me drag them into the ring *lol* and I'll teach 'em some manners. Some people need to review what they were taught in kindergarten. ;)

  8. I have a ticket. I don't need lots more :)

    Please remember that this also affects anyone wanting to use WordPress. It's not just here.

  9. Ok... good point. It's just... I don't feel that comfortable NOT having so much posts. AND I don't have that much visitors, and before i had... like 2,800 (on blogger, thats a lot, on here its minimum).

  11. OOPS! Sorry, I accidentally spammed.

  12. Not to worry. If you write well then you will attract the number of visitors you had before at that other site and even more. This will introduce you to some basic wordpress resources. And this will help with the set up and configuring of widgets. This will help with promoting your blog and this thread will help get the attention of the search engines.
    Once you catch onto the differences you're going to love wordpress. It's the best blogging technology there is. And yeah you bet I'm prejudiced because I was miserable at Blogger. :D

  13. But when do you think the importer will be done?
