Support » Plugin: WordPress Importer » Fails to import images

  • Resolved corporatezen222


    The post content, tags, and meta data all gets imported correctly.

    However none of the images get imported:

    Notice: wp_get_http is deprecated since version 4.4.0! Use WP_Http instead. in /home/themes25/public_html/kolbydemo1/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3838
    Failed to import Media “clouds”

    This notice appears for all my images. Do the plugin creators plan to fix this? This plugin is an integral part of not only many migration techniques, but also of the “One Click Demo Import” plugin which is a huge deal for theme developers and sellers.

    Please advise. What should I do?

    Today we released version 0.6.4 of the WordPress Importer which includes a fix for this issue.



    I use version 0.6.4 of the WordPress Importer but does not import media. All the posts and tags were imported.

    Sorry to sound like a stuck record but this new version is still failing to import media.

    I deactivated the WordPress Importer plugin, installed and activated WordPress Importer Git loader.

    I go to Tools -> WordPress -> Run Installer. I import the media XML file. Some images are being imported but the majority are not. In the media library, I can see some of the images but these are not all being displayed on the posts.

    Can you please help or recommend another plugin that I can transfer the text and images only from the live database to my development server?


    As this topic is marked resolved … I will open a new thread.
