Import posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, tags and more from a WordPress export file.
You just downloaded a premium theme, and you want to have the demo content ? Just install this plugin in few seconds. Then you'll be able to upload demo content with xml file provided by the theme developper :)
The Importer plugin is a necessary tool when developing for WordPress or moving a site, although it's not without its share of issues.
75% of the time it just works and all content/attachments will import correctly, but there are times when importing a file that is too large, or trying to import attachments from a remote server causes errors. This isn't a problem with the plugin per se, but with the web server that can usually be resolved by tweaking the server config (if possible).
Another issue that I've run across is due to a bug in the Safari browser which causes the importer to hang when importing a file. This is actually due to a Safari/Webkit bug that's been around since 2005 (https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5760), and you can save yourself the headache by doing the WordPress import with Firefox or another browser instead.
Incluso es capaz de importar imágenes y videos. Por lo que he probado, lo único que le falta es ser capaz de actualizar los links de las imágenes en los posts para que apunten a las del sitio nuevo y no a las del original.
It can even import images and videos. For what I've seen, the only thing that the plugin lacks is being able to update the image links to point to the new website rather than the original one.
This is severely screwing up my site not having this plugin working. I can't upload any of the dummy content and plugins specifically from the creator in order to have the site run. I doubt WP is going to fix this any time soon.
This plugin is broken. It does not import images or featured images and maybe more. A quick search reveals that it has been broken for some time. Moving content around is a critical part of any active blog. The fact that this has been going on for so long disappoints me.
This plugin won't work unless you are importing tiny blogs or do have a badass server that won't choke on a 2MB import file.
WordPress really needs to make a staggered importer and bring support for on-server files. You can't rely on max_upload_size directives to import a medium blog these days.
Nice, but can't import any image...
If you need to move your WP, this importer will make it easy.
Thank you, WordPress!!
It works like a charm!
It used to work well but now no longer imports images. It is still better than nothing but it really would be much better if it was fixed so that it brought the images across as well.
