  9. 9.  We initially assumed that you are using custom domain name.  One domain can point to one blog. Currently its pointing to Blogger.com blog.  You need to make it point to your webhost where you want to install and run your Wordpress blog.
  10. 10.  WordPress post link:  http://localhost/2009/01/national-conference-on- advanced-computer-systems-ncacs-09-hindustan-college- of-engineering.html  Blogger.com post link for same post:  http://www.example.com/2009/01/national-conference- on-advanced.html  Fixed permalink:  http://localhost/2009/01/national-conference-on- advanced.html
  11. 11. <?php require_once('wp-load.php'); $res = $wpdb->get_results("SELECT post_id, meta_value FROM $wpdb- >postmeta WHERE meta_key = 'blogger_permalink'"); $wpdb->print_error(); foreach ($res as $row) { $slug = explode("/", $row->meta_value); $slug = explode(".", $slug[3]); $wpdb->query("UPDATE $wpdb- >posts SET post_name ='" . $slug[0] . "' WHERE ID = $row->post_id"); $wpdb->print_error(); } echo "DONE"; ?>
  12. 12.  Go to “Tools >> Export”.
