    After reading this(http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/categories/#converting-categories-to-tags) article I tried to follow the directions, but when I click on “Categories can be selectively converted to tags using the category to tag converter.” it takes me to “http://stevebroskey.wordpress.com/wp-admin/import.php” – and the hyperlink of the original text reads to that URL.

    [Having just imported a few blogger blogs, all the tags came in as categories and I had been converting them by hand – automation sounds so much nicer…]

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

    You need to then click on the third option from the top: “Categories and Tags Converter Convert existing categories to tags or tags to categories, selectively.”

    Where?
    As soon as I click on “category to tag converter” it takes me to the import page.

    From Tools>
    Tools-Categories and Tags Converter>
    Import-Categories and Tags Converter>which will bring you to a page “Convert Categories to Tags” with a list of all the available Categories which can be converted to tags.

    At the top of that page there’s also two buttons>Categories to Tags (default-the page you are on) and Tags to Categories.

    Welcome! Yup, agree it would be nice if it were a shorter path from A to D. “-)

    (And mark “resolved”?, thanks!)
