    Any thoughts on the issue?
    Anyone?

    I am afraid that the importer currently doesn’t attempt to translate URLs in post content (except for attachment URLs).

    Thank you for the answer Jon.
    Don’t you think it should though? Any plans on that?
    I understand that it is not a bug but I also believe it should be a feature that could be “easily” implemented since internal linking is quite a common thing. I mean, most likely the infrastructure is probably there (it already does this for attachments).

    BTW, how does it work with mapped domains? If we were to transfer content from
    http://mapped.com (which actually is http://oldurl.com/somesite) to http://newurl.com would we have to deal with any known issues you probably are aware of?

    Yes, ideally it should. I couldn’t say when though. It requires someone to write a patch and think about any edge cases where it wouldn’t work or break something.

    It should work fine. So there are no issues that I am aware of.

    I am glad we both agree. 🙂

    Sorry, I thought you were the developer. Meaning the right person to address when it comes to caring about updates, bugs, new features and suggestions.
    After all we are talking about a plugin with almost 2.5 MIL downloads (an average of 7.000people daily-WOW) and actually the only one for exporting/importing a WordPress site.

    I wish the developer(s) will take a note of this so needed functionality.

    Thank you for your time,
