Is Blogger Import busted in 2.6.1 ? (4 posts)

    Users are emailing about not being able to import from blogger. I checked myself and they were right. I tested on both my live and test installs running 2.6.1 and it's the same.

    It just freezes and stays there after the progress bar grabs the first post.

    Anybody else ?

    Any other solutions that don't involve sending more users to Wordpress.com :D

    The issue, if the reasoning in that thread is correct, is that your server can't make a connection to blogspot/blogger. You may want to search the forums here as I know this has been discussed in the past. The connection issue could be for a number of reasons. The two that pop into my mind is outbound connections being totally not allowed and outbound secure (ie SSL) connections not being allowed. Best bet would be to get with your host and ask them about if outbound connections, both normal and secure, are blocked.
