New Blogger export to WPMU import (5 posts)

    Blogger in Draft allows users to export their posts and comments to an XML file. Has anyone published some instructions for uploading this file into a WPMU member blog?

    Nope, because it's too new. The first I heard of this ability was last week.

    But, XML can be used as a feed and WP will already import rss feeds.

    I didn't work. I tried to upload an xml file that was supposed to hold more than 100 posts, got as message that the import was successful and that I should "have fun." Nada.

    Could be a glitch on Blogger's end. When I look at the content of the XML file, I also contains settings and template information.

    I've had a notoriously bad time getting exports from blogger.

    One weird way to get it working: import from blogger to a WP.COM junk account, then export that one into your MU install.

    After weeks of trying, the blogger import on my MU just started working by itself.

    I remember trying the xml a while back too. At that time they werent wordpress compatible.
