  1. Thanks very much for this video tutorial,which is an excellent step by step guide.My Q for you is this:I have embedded audio podcasts on my blogger blog, if I migrate to wordpress(I have a ready wordpress site on a domain name),will the audio podcasts also be imported?
    Also, blogger importer 0.4 is compatible upto wordpress 3.2.1. whereas I have the wordpress 3.3.1 installed. So, I am wondering if it will work?
    Kindly advise.

      Hi Esther,
      Sorry for the delay in my reply.
      Answers to your questions:
      1. Whatever content you have in your blogger blog posts, will get moved into WordPress posts. It means, if you are having embedded code, iframe, inline css in html tags, etc will get transferred.
      2. Yes, the blogger importer work fine with 3.3.1 WordPress also.

      Thanks.

  2. Wow, thanks so much,Nitun.I finally moved to wp,and guess what,my videos and podcasts moved as well.

  3. Nitun, I have used the twentyten theme. Anything I need to do if I change themes? Also, the default menu is not showing up in my site anymore. I seem to have done something, & cannot figure out what. Any ideas,how I can put it back there?

  4. Thanks Nitun.
    One more Q! Is it possible to reverse the migration to wp?Back to blogger?

  5. can I use the blogger dashboard to write new posts after migrating to wp?

  6. Hi, thanks for the awesome video and help, the migration worked perfectly!
    But, a question – if I dont put in the fix code will it matter? I dont care about seo or anything from the previous blog b/c it didnt get any traffic.
    Without it, everything looks fine and I dont want to mess around with FTP and code etc.
    Please answer, thanks!

      Sorry for such late delay in my reply.

      Answer to your question:
      You must need to run fix.php file, so that you will get one to one redirection of posts from blogger blog to WordPress, otherwise user may get 404 not found error on WordPress when they try to open old blogger posts from their bookmarks or any other source.
      Once you get the output DONE after running fix.php, you should delete that file (it will be of no use then).
      Hope this will help you.

      Thanks,

  7. Awesome video. I’ve got stuck with uploading the fix.php though. filezilla uploaded it but when I try to open it in my domain it says Error 404 — Not Found
    You are trying to reach a page that does not exist here. Either it has been moved or you typed a wrong address. Is it because I’ve just had the blogger domain re pointed to bluehost? Should I have done that first?

      @Sue,

      Make sure you have added the fix.php file in correct directory location from where you can access that file.
      Example: if you have index.php file under /home/public_html/ folder then add the fix.php file in the same location.
      If it is not working for you, then can you please create a support forum and upload a screen-shot as well as blog URL along with fix.php file.

      Thanks,
      –Nitun

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace
    will be preserved.
    
    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
