Blogger Importer Extended


Inspired by the good work done on Blogger Importer, this plugin tries to fill the gap including import for pages, a theme-friendly formatting conversion, compatibility with Blogger 301 Redirect plugin and more over.

Blogger Importer Extended can:

  • Import posts
  • Import pages
  • Import tags
  • Import comments
  • Import images
  • Import links
  • Convert formatting
  • Preserve slugs


  1. Due to Google APIs daily quota limitations the importer can be unavailable, try later.
  2. Due to Google policies, Blogger API v3 are only accessible through manually approved web services, so, any imported content (posts, pages, comments, etc…) go through our web service, only public contents are processed, no private data, no anything else.


  • Authorization
  • Blog list
  • Importing options
  • Importing process
  • Author assignment


  1. Upload the blogger-importer-extended folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Go to Tools > Import > Blogger Importer Extended


The importer stopped unexpectedly, why?

The importer can stop for several reasons, most frequently reasons are:

  • Restart: when you refresh the browser page 2 or more import processes can be together active, so, BIE waits for the first one finish its work.
  • Timeout: the browser, a proxy, or something else, breaks the import process for some reason, usually a timeout.
  • Quota exceeded: BIE uses the Google Blogger APIs, these grant a limited number of requests per day and per second, if the quota is exceeded, the importer stops.


It doesn´t work at all!!!

I,ve tried all tips given in this forum, and nothing work at all… older versions, timeout number, etc… The plugin doesn´t work more, unfortunatelly!!! Please you have to fix it because it was the best import plugin!!!

I love it

This plugin helped me to easely move my website from blogger to wordpress.

Great – saved my life

This plugin saved my life while migrating my blog including pages, posts and media to WordPress.
All tags will be migrated as keywords by default.
This was super easy and quick.

Run once and don’t delete anything afterwards:
I did the mistake and deleted my posts because I thought I messed something up with the keywords but this was due to an import with another tool. Long story short, the second time it won’t import anything because it remembers it has been alread imported. Solution was to restore WordPress database and run it again.

Thank you for the plugin – donation done 😉

Made a mess!

Unfortunately I can’t get this plugin to work, even after trying it with various versions and rolling back WordPress too. Sometimes it gets most of the way through importing my blog, then gives up and enters into an error loop. At this point, I have to delete the hundreds of blog posts it’s generated so far, deactivate and delete the plugin, then go into my database control panel in phpMyAdmin, locate the files it’s created, delete them, and then reinstall the plugin and try again. As far as I can tell from asking around, this is the only way to reset completely and try again.

Have done this four or five times now. On the third run, it got very close to finishing, but unless it gets *all* the way, you have to go through the process described above. What a headache.
