post formatting all messed up from blogger transfer

  1. Hello all,

    my friends and I recently transfer hundreds of posts from our blogger site to wordpress and the formatting is all wrong on wordpress. For example, fonts will change in types and size, and the spacing in some posts will be all wrong. I recently bought the minimum theme which I really like but it's frustrating that all of these old posts are messed up. I don't have time to go through each one and reformatting, is there any advice you all could give?

    I tried selecting "WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically" under the Settings (writing) sidebar but it literally didn't do anything.

    any help would be greatly appreciated.

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

  2. It doesn't do anything retroactively: it WILL prevent this problem in future posts.

    Now that you have it active, just go to each of the messed up posts and select Edit, then change anything: period to semicolon, anything. Add a space. Anything. Then Update. That should cause the XHTML setting to kick in and fix things.

    Try this please. Please try this one time setting fix. Go to Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    Go to Posts > All Posts, change all your posts to Draft, click Update, change them back to Published, click Update again. (You can edit all of them at once: tick the square in front of their titles then select Edit from the Bulk Actions dropdown and click Apply.)
