[issue] Documentation about migration from Blogger should be updated

Documentation about migration to Textpattern from Blogger needs a minor update. The proposed “Blogger template” should change to something like this:

<code>
<html>
<head>
</head>
<noembed>
<body>
</noembed>
<Blogger>
TITLE: <PostSubject><$BlogItemSubject$></PostSubject>
AUTHOR: <$BlogItemAuthor$>
DATE: <$BlogItemDateTime$>
——-
BODY:
<$BlogItemBody$>
——-
<BlogItemCommentsEnabled>
<BlogItemComments>
COMMENT:
AUTHOR: <$BlogCommentAuthor$>
EMAIL:
URL:
DATE: <$BlogCommentDateTime$>
<$BlogCommentBody$>
——-
</BlogItemComments>
</BlogItemCommentsEnabled>
————
</Blogger>
</body>
</html>
</code>

The reason is to disable this annoying top bar which was added recently in Blogger (the main diferrence is the “noembed” tag). The above template worked for me. Without the noembed tag, the ftp publishing never completes and some mysterious errors happen.

I think also that is better to replace the <$BlogItemAuthor$> in the above template with the user name of an already configured user of Textpattern (I did it in my case). This shoud be metioned in the documentation too and is a must option when the Author’s name in Blogger does not use latin characters.

Do not forget also to correct the comment counting bug in the next release.

Bye and thanks for this excellent piece of software!

Andreas

Ankar,

Textbook has a page about requesting a Wiki account.

Do not forget also to correct the comment counting bug in the next release.

As far as I’m aware this was corrected in 4.0.1. If it’s still a problem, please post a specific bug report.

It did not work for me (version 4.0.1). Comments were imported but the comments counter of each article was zero. I had to re-save one comment in each article to get th correct indication.

I will post a bug report.

Re: [issue] Documentation about migration from Blogger should be updated

I had the same problem

Alex, I’m looking right at the Blogger import script, and there isn’t even an attempt to count the comments (unless I’m blind, which is highly possible). So did there use to be and it’s mysteriously disappeared, or were you thinking of some other bug?

I’ve volunteered to beat up Blogger for Textpattern. ;)

I think the import-script is from a time, when the post count was not yet saved in the database.

I think alex was referring to the comment-count bug during regular usage of txp. That’s how I first understood the first post as well.

Still, in 4.0.2 the comment-count bug exists. And I am confronted with it right now. (Any solutions proposed until now that I did not find in the forum?)

Re: [issue] Documentation about migration from Blogger should be updated

Having tons of issues trying to import from blogger. Has anyone successfully uploaded a blogspot blog recently (2010) and where is the documentation for it? I am having the hardest time trying to find successful solutions that are up to date.

Re: [issue] Documentation about migration from Blogger should be updated

I don’t know if any documentation exists, or where it is if it does, but there is this: Import scripts. Devs should be able to say if that is still relevant or not.
