Importing an ftp blogger blog into WordPress 2.7Posted: January 10, 2009 | Author: tech0x20 | Filed under: blogger | Tags: blogger, import | 1 Comment »
If you have a blogspot blog or custom domain, there is a Blogger
import in wordpress:
- Left Sidebar Tools, Import
- Select Blogger
Of course, if you have your own hosting and use Blogger via FTP to
publish your blog, this is not an option
I tried using the RSS feed import in blogger (as did other people), but when I tried the import, it failed with no errors. (No posts were added to my WordPress blog, yet the import displayed only, “All done, Have fun!”
Instead, I chose to convert my Blogger FTP blog to blogspot.
- Go to Blogger.com
- Click on “Settings” for your ftp blog.
- Under the “Settings” tab, click “publishing”
You’ll see the following options
Switch to: • blogspot.com (Blogger’s free hosting service) • Custom Domain (Point your own registered domain name to your blog) • SFTP (secure publishing on your ISP server)
- Click blogspot.com
- Pick an arbitrary blogspot.com address, verify the word, and select [Save Settings].
Then follow the normal steps to import the redirected blog into WordPress.
If you’ve already imported from Blogger, you may have to select [Clear Account Information] and then [Authorize] to refresh the list of blogs.
