I have installed this plugin, as the WP-provided export severely truncates the output - usually after 15 seconds or so (more or less).
This plugin suffers from the same problem. I first tried outputting the whole blog, and the output stopped right after the opening
<title> of a post in early January this year, after 25 seconds or so.
I then decided to output contents only until December 2009, it stopped after outputting
<content:encoded> in the midst of a post from early December, after 15 seconds.
Finally, I limited output to January 2007, (apparently) got all the posts until then, and then from January 2007 until now.
For information, I use PHP5 with max_execution_time=50000 and memory_limit=40M.
What kind of limit causes these export procedures to abort without any explanation on large contents and can it be changed?
