Q: What placeholders can I use in the Root path option? You can use %role% and %username% only. In the case of Role, The first role which the user has is used, This can mean that in complex installs, that using %role% is unreliable.
Q: Why does the file I want to import have a red background? WordPress only allows the importing/uploading of certain file types to improve your security. If you wish to add extra file types, you can use a plugin such as: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/pjw-mime-config/ You can also enable "Unfiltered uploads" globally for WordPress if you'd like to override this security function. Please see the WordPress support forum for details.
Q: Where are the files saved? If you import a file which is outside your standard upload directory (usually wp-content/uploads/) then it will be copied to your current upload directory setting as normal. If you however import a file which -is already within the uploads directory- (for example, wp-content/uploads/2011/02/superplugin.zip) then the file will not be copied, and will be used as-is.
