Hi @leemon,
I'm sorry to hear that you are having issues with your WordPress site.

Unfortunately, this is not the right place to post.

This Trac instance is for the development of the core WordPress software and not general user support.

For support, please open a ticket in the WordPress.org Support Forums.

Thank you
Debabrata Karfa

The Blogger Importer is the one that comes with core WordPress. This is not a third-party plugin.

@leemon While the Blogger importer is mentioned on the Tools page shipped in WordPress Core, the importer itself is a plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/blogger-importer/). Please report the issue in the plugin's support forums.

Importer plugins are actually still supported here on Core Trac.

Per https://make.wordpress.org/core/handbook/contribute/trac/:

Tickets for core plugins, such as the importers, are managed under the Plugins or Import components, and current and former default themes are managed under the Bundled Theme component.

Per https://core.trac.wordpress.org/report/26:

The following components are tracked here:

  • Import: The core importers, now in the plugins repository
  • Themes: previously bundled themes (Kubrick, Classic), now in the themes repository

Thanks for the report, sorry for the confusion :)

This ticket was mentioned in Slack in #core by pbiron. View the logs.

It looks like this issue also conflicts with other plugins such as Beaver Builder.
