    Something I've seen are the problems at importing categories, always hierarchical categories are imported as categories without hierarchy.

  3. I have no idea why import and export options arn't in core yet. I'm always wanting to export my wordpress. Rather than the normal .sql file download from the suggested export plugin. I think having the export in CSV format. So easy to maintain and update product catalogs with CSV files.

    Export is built into core. Import was, but seeing as people usually only import once in their lives, it was moved to a plugin a year or so ago. It still works great.

  5. A great solution for importing XML and CSV is http://www.allimport.com - I use it on some sites and am totally satisfied.

    Leaving all files on the server, in my opinion, defeats the whole point of exporting. Files should remain downloadable.
