Import posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, tags and more from a WordPress export file.
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?
I get a white screen, no part where I can upload my file.
Backing up is easy; the real problem, and the important part, is restoring. I can't tell you how many times I've tried to restore a backup, only to find that there was some difficulty that I couldn't get around.
Importer is simple but effective. It backed up my blog. It didn't save the media, but when I uploaded those separately my blog was able to find them. I admit that I may have missed some feature in importer that would let me back up the media with everything else.
This is the best product I've found so far for backing up and
irestoring my blogs
It worked after I spent nearly two days on how to use it from forums all over the Internet. Improve this so you can attract more users, WordPress. You're driving them away with poor assistance such as this plug-in.
Very useful plugin. The only issue is the following: if you have something in your code that replied on post id or taxonomy id, it will stop working since when imported new item ids are generated in the database that don't correspond to the original ones.
It's really perfect.
Leaves hundreds of posts unattached from its media, in a 200MB site.
For what it is intended to work very well. I heartily recommend it to everyone.
I activate the plugin, and nothing.
I can’t find any place where I can run an IMPORT. Wow, just unbelievable.
I use this plugin a lot. It did save my life a bunch of times.
