Thanks Micho — while you seem to check on the forums: I also had issues while importing content (via WXR files). It seems that the import process does execute some code form the plug-ins, probably because of the filters etc. The Import was timing out every 200 posts or so (I didn’t have the usual PHP memory issues that most users report). I had to disable YARPP and PageNavi to get things to import normally. Honestly, I’m not sure why either would do anything, but I thought that you’d like to know.
Yes, that’s what ended up doing, but not before loosing 4hrs thinking that it was a timeout issue or a memory issue with PHP. Maybe a note in the FAQ or something might spare someone else 🙂 I thought that I’d mention it. thx!
