Mildly Frustrated With Blogger

I have tried to find a way to restore just some posts from the old blog--but without success.  There is supposed to be a way to import the old postings, without publishing them.  That works.  But once they are restored, and appear as Imported, there does not seem to be any way to publish individual postings.  Very annoying.  There's a lot of good stuff back there.  I just manually restored a bunch of postings about sinuses and BreatheRight strips because they were being referenced by something on my web page--but that means edit and copy from the non-public blog to the public blog.  For six or seven postings, not a big deal.  For thousands?  Hopeless.

Actually, you just need a script set up to automate the process. It's worth doing if you want to transfer over thousands of posts.

Is there an introduction somewhere to the scripting language used? I'm guessing that somewhere in Blogger there is a method for specifying which posting IDs to publish, right?
