Decent Product, Works As Stated
By , for WP 3.4.2

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\i.

Dang Near Defiecent
By , for WP 3.5.1

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.

Clean and easy way to export / import
By , for WP 3.5.1

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.

And were is the IMPORT part?
By , for WP 3.4.2

I activate the plugin, and nothing.

I can’t find any place where I can run an IMPORT. Wow, just unbelievable.

Inconsistent
By , for WP 3.4.2

Inconsistent behavior. Certain factors seem to confound this importer; sometimes downloading attachments, sometimes draft pages. Still working to diagnose and understand.
