Support » Plugin: WordPress Importer » Rarely works well, but forced to use to migrate from wordpress.com

  • Obviously Automattic want to keep people on wordpress.com, yet still be able to claim an ‘open’ platform (but where’s the full source code, not just Calypso?), so they provide a sh1t plugin for migration to self-hosted wordpress.org.

    It rarely works, let alone well, but seems to be the only tool available. Never use this plugin except to migrate from wordpress.com to self-hosted wordpress.org. Any other tool will always be better for any other job.

    wordpress.org is open. wordpress.com is not. Do not use wordpress.com in the first place if you want to save yourself hassle in the long run. (I make money out of people who do, but I shouldn’t have to.)
