Support » Plugin: HTML Import 2 » Claims that it worked but nothing to show

  • Went through the settings page and filled in everything. Import claims it worked and no new page or post created. Tested this with both folder and single file upload.

  • 100% sure it’s your server’s fault, or something you did. I tested this in 4 different servers so far and it works like a charm

    Clean wordpress installation on wamp localhost. If there was something I failed to do, or did incorrectly it just means that the setup and basic usage was not explained. Only reason I left a rating is because this plugin looks promising and was a waste of time when time was of the essence. Without basic usage explanation and error response when it does not work as intended this plugin rating should not be at 4.5 in my opinion.

    It has very detailed explanations, so I’m guessing you’re expressing your frustration on your own mistakes trying to harm those that tried to help you… for free

    You are right I was expressing frustration, but I did not do it unjustly. Like I said it was clean installation of a lamp stack on a clean installation of windows 7 on a clean installation of WordPress on a local machine.

    If you get a message that says imported successfully and no database entries were made, the plugin did not test every test case of potential issues, did not properly double check if content was created.

    I have no idea if the documentation changed since my review (7 months ago), however even on good reviews you can read that they say it is buggy. I was pressed for time and the plugin wasted more time than it was supposed to save.

    I just iframed the HTML files to get them to show, just to show a mockup of what our designer created in PowerPoint which I saved as HTML file using PowerPoint.

    In hindsight I should have known that Microsoft’s obscure HTML content would be near impossible to convert.

    Do not be dismayed by my opinion/rating, it gives the plugin credibility that says not just friends tried the plugin.
