WP Re-Importer

Import content from a WordPress export file. Content that already exists is added as a post revision. Also lets you specify a default parent post.


  • Checks for existing posts during import now compares the post name rather than post title.
  • Fix post meta being duplicated on multiple imports.
  • Allow imported posts' post_parent to be set to a post not in the import (e.g. an existing post).


  • First version. Forked from version 0.6 of the WordPress Importer plugin.
  • Importing content that already exists will add the new version as a post revision.
  • A default parent post can be set for content that doesn't have a hierarchy defined in the WordPress export file.
