Import Blogger to WordPress error

If you have tried to import a blog from Blogger to WordPress 2.2 you may have been frustrated by an error. The system just returns a message that it can not login to your Blogger account. There is a very simple fix for this error that requires a one character change in the wp-admin/import/blogger.php file.

On or around line 84 there is a reference to www2.blogger.com, change this to www.blogger.com and the import should work.

I have done several imports from Blogger to WordPress and the system has been working great.

  1. Shazza, I would recommend updating your WordPress to Version 2.3 and then the new import system works great.
