    I received the following message when I attempted to import my entries from blogger.
    ___

    404 Not Found
    The resource requested could not be found on this server!
    ___

    I actually have 2 blogs and I managed to import one of them successfully when the import function first came out. However when I wanted to import my 2nd blog, I found that I can’t do it (either on Firefox or IE, if that matters).

    What should I do?

    I am having the above problem as well. Can WordPress only import one blog?

    I don’t believe that wordPress has any sort of restriction regarding importing more than one blog. Have you checked the FAQ and the WordPress documemntation under “importing”?

    This is a rhetorical question is your blog at Blogger very large or is it small? If it’s not a huge one then you might consider doing what I did with a couple of dozen draft posts I had and just copy and paste them. Drafts cannot be imported and I did not want to publish them at Blogger just to render them available for importing so that’s what I did.

    The second blog I would like to import has only 40 entries, which I suspect is small, in comparison to others. The first blog I imported came through very well, with no changes to blogger or in format on WP. WP even found my haloscan comments, which was great.

    I still get a 404 when trying to import second. I have three others to import eventually (I love pages on WP!) so while c&p is an option, it’s just not very efficient.

    Perhaps this may be a case of requiring some staff help by sending in a feedback. I admit copy and paste was a no joy exercise. But have you used the search box? I ask because I remember a recent forum conversation on this same topic.

    edit:
    please check these threads out. I found them by doing a search “importing blog”

    The catalyst for my moving here is Blogger’s outages in the past week. Could it be that I am having issues with a second import because of whatever is going on on their end?

    Might be. There’s a number of threads stating that people are having problems. I made a suggestion in another thread that if you can live with it, try deleteing the Blogger posts that have already come over. That way you’re not having to deal with the older posts yet again. Of course if you’re keeping your older blog….
