Blogger Importer Should Include Helpful Text

  • Only Blogger Accounts hosted directly on Blogspot can be imported. To import a Blogger blog on a self-hosted domain, Change your publishing Settings to use Blogspot instead (self hosted blog content will not be lost during the import and Settings can be redirected after import completes)
  • User accounts should already be created in WordPress to properly map multiple authors

Actually, I think you can import any blogger account *except* those that are set to publish via FTP. If you're using the other method of using your own domain name, then that will import fine.

There's three modes. Blogger-hosted, FTP or SFTP. The importer won't import FTP or SFTP (verified).

Yes, I was just distinguishing between the *.blogspot.com address and the "Publish on a custom domain" option. Both of those work fine with the importer, it's the FTP modes that don't work.

Blogger blog service via FTP or SFTP ended May 1, 2010. Only blogger-hosted accounts are available now. Ref. See http://blogger-ftp.blogspot.com/2010/01/deprecating-ftp.html

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

FTP sites no longer exist on blogger, and this is getting a refactoring anyway. Closing as invalid.
