Good Plugin but...
By , for WP 3.5.1

From wordpress.org I was expecting something better, specially when we go on image importing: fails 9 time on 10!

Imported Incorrectly
By , for WP 3.5.1

I had a blog that was hosted on as "myblog.wordpress.com"
I exported the blog so that I could upload it to my new domain name.
Imported the file to the new blog control panel on my domain.
Seemed to work okay.

The navigation menu is jacked. Nothing is where it should be.
Picture slideshows were reverted to grid picture galleries.

Is it possible to have the same functionality as when WordPress was hosting? The slideshow plugins that I found are garbage. They try to over complicate it.

This was a big let down.

Almost never works
By ,

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.

does not work
By , for WP 3.5.1

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!
