I am running EE 2.7.3 and Solspace Importer 2.2.3. I am getting this error when I select the channel for these entries to go in. I am uploading manually using strict XML.

A PHP Error was encountered
Severity: Notice

Message: unserialize(): Error at offset 11 of 49151 bytes

Filename: importer/mcp.importer.php
Line Number: 1151

Unable to Retrieve Profile Data

Here is an example of the XML:

        <title>Destiny and a Blue Cloak</title>
        <story_excerpt><![CDATA[ Except goes here]]></story_excerpt>
        <story_box><![CDATA[ Content goes here]]></story_box>

Any thoughts?

Try the "Loose XML" option. Also run your xml through a validator just to make sure it's clean.

You might also be missing the XML header in your XML file, eg. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Finally, the <categories></categories> node should contain a string of category data, such as a comma-separated list of category names.
