    Importing Blogs from Blogger blogs
    the importing function did not work in recent days

    is it just me ?

    [Link removed]

    after i click the selected blog,
    a few seconds later,
    it goes to a blank page with this URL on the browser address line

    [Link removed]

    Please do not post links into your admin screens. -drmike



    i thinjk its bloggers problem. I had the same problem yesterday but now its back to normal. Try importing again



    but the page title is

    Oops, we can’t open “”



    Please check your page source for your blank page to see if it’s truely blank. There may be an actual error there that for some reason isn’t showing up. Also remember to change your blogger theme to one of the basic ones so not to throw off the importer.




    i have successfully imported one blog a few days before.

    The following is the code of that page after i click the hyperlink of the selected blog to import


    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC “-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN”>

    a:link {font:8pt/11pt verdana; color:red}
    a:visited {font:8pt/11pt verdana; color:#4e4e4e}
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV=”Content-Type” Content=”text-html; charset=Windows-1252″>
    <title>HTTP 404 Not Found</title>

    function Homepage(){
    // in real bits, urls get returned to our script like this:
    // res://shdocvw.dll/http_404.htm#

    //For testing use DocURL = “res://shdocvw.dll/http_404.htm#”
    DocURL = document.location.href;

    //this is where the http or https will be, as found by searching for :// but skipping the res://

    //this finds the ending slash for the domain server
    serverIndex=DocURL.indexOf(“/”,protocolIndex + 3);

    //for the href, we need a valid URL to the domain. We search for the # symbol to find the begining
    //of the true URL, and add 1 to skip it – this is the BeginURL value. We use serverIndex as the end marker.
    //urlresult=DocURL.substring(protocolIndex – 4,serverIndex);
    BeginURL=DocURL.indexOf(“#”,1) + 1;
    if (protocolIndex – BeginURL > 7)


    //for display, we need to skip after http://, and go to the next slash
    displayresult=DocURL.substring(protocolIndex + 3 ,serverIndex);

    // Security precaution: must filter out “urlResult” and “displayresult”
    forbiddenChars = new RegExp(“[<>\’\”]”, “g”); // Global search/replace
    urlresult = urlresult.replace(forbiddenChars, “”);
    displayresult = displayresult.replace(forbiddenChars, “”);

    document.write(‘<A target=_top HREF=”‘ + urlresult + ‘”>’ + displayresult + “”);

    function doSearch()

    function initPage()
    document.body.insertAdjacentHTML(“afterBegin”,”<object id=saOC CLASSID=’clsid:B45FF030-4447-11D2-85DE-00C04FA35C89′ HEIGHT=0 width=0></object>”);

    Does importing an old blogger account overwrite existing posts on the WordPress blog?



    only speaking on my own experience, but I just imported mine and it didn’t overwrite anything. Just put them into chrono sequence with what was there.
    I’m a new guy though, so don’t take my word on it until confirmed!



    hey. i am a new user on wordpress, &i have been trying to import my blog from blogger. but it always displays this message when i try to import. “Couldn’t resolve host ‘’Your Blogger blog did not take the new template or did not respond.” what does it mean? please help me!
