    Problems with xml import export to extract WP site into another WP site....
    Context : extraction by export 432 posts to another new wp site... but during xml import only the first 82 posts were imported...
    Diagnostic after many tests :
    The lastest 82th post contain empty tag (a tag without term) described in xml as here.

    <category domain="tag"><![CDATA[]]></category>
    <category domain="tag" nicename="53"><![CDATA[]]></category>

    The solution :
    before exporting : go in the admin tags menu and delete unexpected tags !

    and now the xml produced file will be clean and work well.
    Hope that help you !

    Note: during the tests, some limits of export / import appear - but it is not the topic of this post.
