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!

Works very well
By , for WP 3.5.1

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.

What about the 301 's ?
By , for WP 3.4.2

This process also made the 301 redirects when you migrate the content from one blog to another?

This is absolutelly necessary!!!

Could someone help?

Plugin excelente
By , for WP 3.5.1

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 ;)

Does What You Want
By , for WP 3.5.1

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.

no feature images, no language detection, mess
By , for WP 3.5.1

when you mark the option to import media also it
appears to be doinf something, lists media files etc and at the end it just stops, but nothing has been imported, no posts, pages nothing..
only the media library is available.

when you again try without media import it does import posts, however, all feature image settings are lost.
I have posts in two languages, and I could choose the language, but it is all mixed up and the connection links between translations are lost.
It is a mess.

Plugin does not work at all!
By , for WP 3.5.1

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?
