  2. Hello there,
    I'll tag this thread for Staff assistance. Please subscribe to the thread so you are notified when they respond and please be patient while waiting.

  3. Do the instructions at Blogger help you? Export a copy of your content out of your .blogspot blog http://support.google.com/blogger/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=97416 and then import it into your WordPress.com blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/

  4. I am able to export blog but still have the Trouble signing in
    We were not able to gain access to your account .Try starting over.Where is the Automatically publish all imported posts located on here? I don't want to keep exporting the blog everytime I post something new.

  5. Hi,

    More or like the same problem here.
    A couple of months ago I imported the blog and it was ok.

    However now I'm not able to import (new posts) ... always keeps apearing the page ... "We were not able to gain access to your account. Try starting over."

    The blog I need help is in Portuguese: continentalcircus.wordpress.com

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  6. I have reset both of your importers.

    I have noticed recently that some people have had issues using the automatic importer which connects to Blogger. If that's the case in your situation, please try downloading your Blogger export file and use the manual option in the Blogger import tool to import it into your site.

    If that doesn't work, please let me know what the size of your Blogger export file is.

    Also, both of your sites have a lot of posts, so please double check that your Blogger content isn't actually showing up. That isn't something I will be able to verify on my end.

  7. Import blogger still not working. Can anyone do something about it, please?

  8. I have the same problem. My blog: thoughtthemes.wordpress.com

  9. Hi,
    Thanks jackiedana for the fast response, but unfortunately still does not work.
    Yes my blog is big, but in wordpress there are more or less missing 20 to 30 posts.
    And other problem is that the xml file exported has mor or less 65MB, so I can not upload it. :-(

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  10. It doesn't work on my end either.Guess I will have to delete the blog soon.

  11. The current size for the export blog is 5,043 KB.How long before it can no longer post?

  12. Now it's working again.

  13. Yes it is back to normal.

  14. @speeder76 are you still running into problems with this?

  15. Hi,

    Yes all is working just fine.

    Thanks a lot for the assistence.

  16. That's great to hear. Thanks for letting me know.

  17. Hello,

    Just started WordPress. Copied my blogspot to WordPress (theme: suits). That worked but now I have trouble to arrange text and photo's correct. Words appear next to the picture, I change it but no, he is stubborn and the text appears next to the picture again. Also: when I press enter, he (my computer) does not accept that. Am I doing something wrong?

    Kind reagards,

    Simone

  18. @simoneretro please post your issue in a new thread, as it is not related to the topic here. Thanks. :)

  19. It happened again!

  20. @frankr0d are you trying to import new Blogger export files or the same one as before?

  21. I can export the file easily but still get Trouble signing in
    We were not able to gain access to your account .Try starting over.

  22. When I click reset importer nothing happens.

  23. Me too. Import is not working again. Loops back to the same page.

  24. I too am having the same issues trying to import my blogger account. Tumblr worked fine but for some reason Blogspot keeps looping me back after granting access? What the what?

  25. Hi everybody,

    Same problem here.
    I did import my blog a couple of weeks ago and it worked fine.
    I tried again a couple of times last week it did work one time but stopped working again.

    Tried to import another blogger blog, just in case the issue might be on my blogger blog's side, same result, it didn't work.

    I am able to authorize it but as soon as I did it, I am back to the page where wordpress want's me to authorize it.

    Can't import it through the uploader, my file is over 50MB.

    If anybody knows how to convert a blogger XML file to a WXR (there are online apps but they have also a limited file size) or simply an app that can split a blogger XML file. This might help out those who have huge XML files.

    Thanks

    Regards.

    Patrick

    Same issues here. I can authorize but then the blog doesn't show up. I have tried on two browsers. It worked before 2 weeks ago.

  27. Since there are a few different people posting here:

    If you are having trouble with Blogger imports, please try to do a "manual" import where you get the export file from Blogger and then upload it using the Blogger tool, rather than connecting directly with Blogger. That usually will work when the automatic import tool fails.

    Also, if you have done multiple import attempts, be sure to check to make sure your posts aren't showing up in the Trash, as that may happen if our system detects multiple imports, to ensure that the second import doesn't create duplicate content.

    If you cannot get the import to work at all, please confirm that you have tried a manual import.

    If the importer starts, but gets hung up in the middle, let me know that you need the importer reset, and I can take care of that for you.

    @franr0d, I have reset your importer. Please try the manual import process.

    @patrickbecker87989769 due to the size of your export, if you can upload your export file to Dropbox or a similar file sharing service and let me know, we can process your import manually.

  28. When will the import blogger be fixed? I can export the blogger file but all I get is this:
    Trouble signing in

    We were not able to gain access to your account. Try starting over.

    Restart

    We have saved some information about your Blogger account in your WordPress database. Clearing this information will allow you to start over. Restarting will not affect any posts you have already imported. If you attempt to re-import a blog, duplicate posts and comments will be skipped.
    When I click on restart nothing happens.

  29. @frankr0d, I've reset the Blogger import for you again. You should be able to use the manual importer for now. If you still experience issues with it, I'm happy to try processing an import on my end if you can upload your export file to Dropbox or a similar file sharing service.

  30. The manual importer does not work.I'm still getting this:
    Trouble signing in
