    I’ve tried the import feature in the Tools menu twice to get the content from my Blogger blog to my new WordPress blog.
    Only the headers and names of the commenters show up…no
    post content or images.
    I can deal with the images later as they are all in my flickr account, but I’m not sure why the post content has not been imported.
    I picked a very simple theme that is not gallery intensive (Crafty).
    Is there something I am not doing correctly? I have seen that other people are having a similar problem.
    If I can get this to work I may actually pay to upgrade to a customized account. Thanks!

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

    Thank you. I went back and deleted all the imported posts and then uploaded an .xml file from blogger. Hopefully something should work!

    You also need to empty the trash on the posts you’ve deleted, otherwise the system will think the posts exist and will not import them the next time you try.

    Let me know if you still need assistance after you empty your posts and pages trash and reimport.

    Thank you!

    Hello – I am having the same issue as the orginal poster. Can someone give me more detail instructions on how to delete partially imported posts so I can start over?

    I’m new to wordpress so still trying to find my way through the dashboard :) Thank you!!!

    Thank you!
