WordPress and Blogger

I can’t quite remember now on whose blog I had seen this mentioned; I know it can’t have been more than two or perhaps three weeks ago. Anyway, for whoever would need this information: there’s an option, in WordPress 2.0′s beta, that allows you to import posts from Blogger to WordPress. This can be quite useful if you want to move to WP, but cringe at the idea of copying/pasting all your old posts manually. Note that this is what I did, back in February, when I moved by Second Life blog to WordPress… It was terribly boring, I tell you. And I didn’t even have that many posts to start with.I’ve tested the feature on two old little blogs I had set up a couple years ago for a SWG character that I never got to finish (since I’ve decided to not try the game in the end) and for another MMORPG-related project. The points I’ve been able to note down so far are:

More will be added if I perform further testing, but for the moment, I don’t have any “real” Blogger blog under the hand, since I’ve never used the service extensively…Y Tags: | | |

    Interesting. I didn’t even consider importing my old blogger posts, thought it too much of a hassle. I’ll have to try it, when 2.0 comes out of beta

    I’d be tempted to say you could already do it now; I’ve found the beta to be stable enough to handle that so far, and perhaps a simple database backup that could be used to replace the DB on a version 1.5.x could work. Of course, that’s just me liking to tinker here, so indeed, better wait if you don’t want to bother toying with that ;)

    It’s also the fact I’m feeling kind of lazy :p
