Import Error (Importing from Blogger to WordPress.com)

  1. When I try to import posts from my Blogger/BlogSpot blog I get the following message:

    Authorization failed
    
    Something went wrong. If the problem persists, send this info to support:

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

  2. This has happened 4 times today.

    I have imported from this blog in the past with no problems.

  3. Hi there,
    We Volunteers cannot help you but Staff may be able to. Here's the contact link > http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

  4. thanks - I'll try that than

  5. Best wishes for a happy ending. :)

  6. I have the same problem, any solution?

  7. We are checking with Blogger to see why this is occurring. For now, you will not be able to use the authentication method to import your Blogger content. We're actually going to lock that down for now so people don't use it and keep running into errors.

    You can still use a Blogger export file and import it by uploading it to the importer.

    I'm going to sticky this post so everyone can see it until we have resolved the issue. We are responding to tickets as they come in at Support.

  8. The Blogger importer has been repaired and you can now import your blogs using the authorization method.

  9. Any chance this fix is something that can help fix the same issue on WordPress.org/self-hosted blogs? I assume it's an issue with the authorization (maybe scope?) but I'm not sure, and I'd love to be able to use the importer!

  10. You will have to talk with the .ORG forums since wordpress.COM is not connected to self-hosted blogs in anyway. I expect there will be some code that you will have to enter into one of the wordpress core files to fix the issue till they come out with the next upgrade.

  11. just retried it and it's working again now

    Thanks!

    Hi, I am having the same problem.

    The issue still exists.

    markel, how do you upload to an importer?

    The Blogger importer has been repaired and you can now import your blogs using the authorization method.

    markel, can you explain how?

    Thanks

  15. It still gives the same error above. How is that fixed?

    Be honest WP...

  16. Yes, sorry to say this is still happening. I'm hosting a WordPress (3.0.1) blog on a 3rd party host and no matter what I try I get the same error.

  17. Ahh never mind. I see self-hosted problems need to be taken to .ORG. Thanks!

  18. Hi. I'm having the same problem and I don't know how to use the upload method to import my blog. I do have an XML file from blogspot but the thing is: where do I upload it?

  19. @llipegilard
    Are you rederring to q wordpress.COM blog? How would we know as you have not privided a URL? If you are then simply log into your WordPress.com blog dashboard, then go to Tools -> Import, choose your previous platform and follow the instructions presented.
    Reference link > http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/

  20. I'm trying to import this blog http://permutavel.blogspot.com to my website which is a wordpress.com blog - http://www.fellipegilard.com

    I did what you said, went to Tools - Import, chose Blogger and it gives me the same error that this guy @eelkat had. I have an XML file but I just dont know where to go to upload it!

  21. same thing over here, can't import from blogger to wordpress on private server

    this is the error i get:

    HTTP/1.0 403 Invalid AuthSub token.
    Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
    Content-Length: 167

    <H2>Error 403</H2>
    </BODY>
    </HTML>

  22. If you are on a private server, you are in the wrong forum. You need to head over to http://wordpress.ORG/support/ as that is where self-hosted wordpress blogs using the software from wordpress.ORG are supported.

    These forums are for those hosted here on the wordpress.COM free hosting service and things here work differently and our answers typically will not work for you.

    If you do not know the difference, see this support document: http://en.support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/ .

  24. Hi,
    I also faced same problem while importing posts by WodPress importer tool.
    But now I got the solution for all the problem by bloggertowp service. There is a plugin that you can also download to import blogger.com blog posts into WordPress. It is free to use.
