Export media with selected content


When selecting one post type in the WordPress export screen, by default the linked media (attachments) are not included.

This plugin adds an “Export media with selected content” option. When checked, the plugin tries to find featured images and included media in the post_content, adding them to the export file.


  • "Export media with selected content" checkbox option now available in the Export screen.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/export-media-with-content directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress


Export limit

This plug-in works very good. Only there seems a limit to the number of posts you can export. If I try to export the posts of more then one month, I get a file of 249 bytes. I have to export posts of 15 years, so it will become quit a job now. Maybe there is a simple solution for this.

Worked but … comments not imported/exported

A test of this plugin on two sites worked. However, we can’t use it because the comments from the source website aren’t exported/imported.

It looked positive for posts without comments though (including all content with and inline images in the posts).
