Import posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, tags and more from a WordPress export file.
Stopped working when I upgraded my server to PHP 5.4
If you want to import over 100 posts with images, this plugin will almost never work. You'll either get blank white screens on import, or you'll get timeouts. It requires your PHP settings to be just so, otherwise you'll get script timeouts or upload size.
I have tried importing an entire site, and I have tried importing the pages, posts, and comments separately. Either way, I get nothing but Failed to import and Invalid post type error messages.
This plugin is a total bust, and there is no support for it, either! Importing content is crucial functionality. Allowing it to be totally broken and doing nothing to respond to bug reports from users is going to drive consultants away from using WordPress for client projects. It will drive us either towards more flexible hosted solutions, like Squarespace and Weebly, or towards other open source content management systems, like Joomla and Drupal.
WordPress really dropped the ball on this one. Is anybody listening?
Go around the forums and see, everyone complains about the errors this plugin give importing the images on each post
I have tried and tried agian to use the export my blog form wordpress.com and use this plugin to import to my wordpress.org hosted site - since the first time I used it it just says that each file already exists but there is nothing there - it shows as having added the tags on stats page but when I click on them there is nothing there!
I am going around in circles in the forums and I am not getting anywhere other than days having passed and being on the verge of deleting it completely!
I've been very happy with this. It's good for exporting a site then importing it into another installation. It's not the same as a backup so won't reset up your plugins etc. But will faithfully bring across your content - pages/posts/products etc.
upload limit 2MB
This process also made the 301 redirects when you migrate the content from one blog to another?
This is absolutelly necessary!!!
Could someone help?

Descobri graças a um colega de trabalho. Me poupou muito trabalho na hora de trazer postagens de um blog para outro.
O plugin importa, de uma forma extremamente simples e rápida, as postagens, páginas e outras coisas. As imagens dos posts? Ele oferece a opção de fazer download e manter.
Perfeito pra quem precisa migrar conteúdo de um blog para outro ;)
If you are someone who makes a lot of WordPress site with a similar design or similar content, this plugin does exactly what you need it to do, which is import your WordPress files.
Simply go to export and export your WordPress enhanced XML file. Once this complete, its easy to go to any new WordPress site with the files and even import them to a user of your choice (images included).
The only limitation is being able to split content by user which may be annoying when moving large sites, however for the typical user its not a bad thing at all. Easy to use and probably one of the best plugins out there. Plus you can remove it once your done at no impact to your system.
