    I have a quick question:
    For example i have a blog in a domain with more than 30 authors (they have posts, etc) if ever I'm going to change my domain, could I export those 30 authors and import them using this plugin? Currently, WP can import categories, posts, pages only, right? I tried importing my authors but i realized it can't. The blog entries were all under my name (admin role).

    So if I used this plugin, and imported the entries, could my authors be the original authors still?

    Are you getting me though? hehehe.

    When you Import a file that was Exported from another WordPress blog it will allow you to 'map' the authors names.

    So I believe the answer to your question "could my authors be the original authors" is yes.

    Please review WordPress Backups and perform a backup before doing the import!!!
