What kinds of errors are you getting? When you say that it is a "no go", what happens to tell you that it didn't work.

 

In order for us to be much more help, we're going to need to localize the problem. We don't do so well with general "it doesn't work" kinds of problems. We are much better at solving, "I get this specific error: <error message>" kinds of problems.

 

So let us know exactly what you tried, and what error message you got, and we'll see if we can't figure out where you might have gone wrong.

 

Good luck!!

I recieved no error messages, otherwise I could probably do some preliminary debugging. I press the "OK" button after the republish(I verified the files are there) But I check the db and none of the posts are there. I installed wp in my public_html directory, I have placed the files in that directory as per instructions, and the code saya it looks one directory back as well.

I'm going off memory here, but I'm wondering if you exported your files from Blogger in the correct format. Maybe you could post the template you used in blogger to export your posts.

 

I'm also wondering if there would be help in the WordPress support forum:

 

http://wordpress.org/support/

 

Maybe there is somebody there who has more experience with Blogger imports. If, however, they are the ones who resolve this question, you should still post your response over here, so that TCH family members can benefit in the future from what you learn as you fix this.

 

So, if you can, post the template you are using for your blogger exports.

Yes, I would suggest following the steps in the tutorial that Bruce suggested.

 

One thing to remember, when you copy and paste the code into the Blogger template, that line has to be one long line, with no breaks. If there are breaks in that line, it won't work correctly.

 

Next, when you are publishing it using Blogger's publish button, what happens? Does it get to 100%? Can you find the files on your TCH server? Where are they located? What is in the files?

Hmmm... Your data seems okay, except that it seems to be missing any comments.

 

So you have this data file that seems to be okay (except it is sans comments); what is the exact filename? What directory is it in (in relation to your WordPress installation)?
