#4009 closed enhancement (duplicate)

Change Blogger Importer to use Blogger Post ID

Description

The blogger importer currently uses the post permalink to associate comments to the post. Blogger, however includes a unique post id on each post, and the comments all reference this id. This enhancement will change the blogger importer to use this post id field, which will be simpler, with less code and complexity, and also allow the optional importing of Haloscan comments (see ticket #4008).

Blogger update to add postid field

#1 @clwill

After fiddling with this for what seems like forever, I have resigned myself to the same conclusion as Andy did -- that blogger leaves only the permalink as a reference, and that is what needs to be used within blogger to correlate the post and comments.

However, haloscan uses the blogger postid to connect their comments to the post, and therefore the metadata needs to keep the blogger postid field around. This update simply adds that metadata field to each post as it's imported. This lays the groundwork for adding haloscan import (ticket #4008), which I'm still working on.

This simple change, therefore accomplishes/closes this ticket.
