Hi, Thank you for providing these great resources. I'm following your“Migrate from Blogger to WordPress – Best DIY Tutorial.”And while running your "Blogger to WordPress Redirection" plugin, I encounter the following 3 issues:
- List of Blogs shows my Blogger blog with custom domain instead of the blogspot subdomain. Is this a problem?
I registered a new domain name through Blogger and changed my Blogger blog's blogspot subdomain to the new domain, and then imported all the posts into WP as instructed in the tutorial. Before running this plugin, I changed the domain of my Blogger blog back to the blogspot subdomain as instructed in the tutorial.
- I proceeded with this plugin anyway and Test Case shows that a Blogger post (with custom domain: http://www.dailyenglishquote.com/2010/06/julie-andrews.html) is redirected to a new post (with temporary IP address URL: http://188.8.131.52/~joliu200/2010/06/julie-andrews.html). Is this normal?
Before running this plugin, I had followed the tutorial to install Firefox's SwitchHosts addon and use it to access my WP on the custom domain which actually directs to the IP address provided by HostGator.
- Both the old and new posts in Test Case can load fine under the SwitchHosts "Edited view." However, under the "Original view", the original post shows as "Not Found" and the new post loads with awkward formatting. And this is what my blog readers will see. What should I do about this situation?
I have followed your "Migrate from Blogger to WordPress – Best DIY Tutorial" step by step to this stage, except I haven't changed the DNS.
Thanks in advance for your assistance!
