    I just imported my blog from Blogger..or tried to. Only the post tiles transferred, NOT THE POSTS!!! what the hell?!? None of the comments transferred either…the NAMES are there, but not the comments!

    so I have over 400 BLANK POSTS and over 2000 comments with no text! what the hell?!? and I PAID for this?!?

    The blog I need help with is lindasyoga.com.

    This is WordPress.com where there are free blogs being free hosted by WordPress.com. We do not pay for imports of any kind here. Please post an active link for the blog in question if it is a free blog being free hosted by WordPress.COM that you are referring to.

    “We do not pay for imports of any kind here.” WHAT?!?

    I SAID…
    “I just imported my blog from Blogger..or tried to. Only the post tiles transferred, NOT THE POSTS! None of the comments transferred either…the commenters’ NAMES are there, but not the comments!

    so right now on http://lindasyoga.com (a domain name I paid for) I have over 400 BLANK POSTS and over 2000 comments with no text!

    what’s up with that?

    I think I saw a similar issue a few days ago. You should contact the staff – they can reset the import process or give you other help: http://en.support.wordpress.com/contact/

    pretty ironic considering that Blogger is totally down….imported blog to WP thinking it was better.

    Blogger runs on deprecated code. Please enable this on your WordPress.com blog Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.”

    We Volunteers do the best we can to help our fellow bloggers. If you believe that Staff have not provided sufficient detail in the import entry support documentation http://en.support.wordpress.com/import/ then please share that with them when you file your support ticket. http://en.support.wordpress.com

    I can clarify something for you as I have more than one domain being domain mapped and free hosted here. The fact the import is not working for you is not as far as I can tell in any way associated with the fact that you purchased a domain name and domain mapping. But if you think it is associated then by all means include mention of it in your support ticket.

    Namaste from another yogini, who has had a practice for over 30 years. :)

    all I want to know is how to fix it. so far, nothing has been fixed.

    I did what you suggested: “Settings > Writing and select “ ___ WordPress should correct invalidly nested XHTML automatically” and then scroll down and click “Save Changes.””

    when you say “go directly to Staff”, that means nothing. go directly to Staff and do what? repeat my original question? all I want is a clear, concise answer on how to get over 400 posts and over 2000 comments imported to WP!

    The import failed. Others have had failed imports as well as auxclass stated above. That’s why I recommend going directly to Staff, providing all your details, and requesting that they help you.
