Import attachments from another WordPress blog using a WXR file.
This, unlike the official WordPress Importer, actually works. If your images are hooped, this is what you need.
As a side note, I had to make use of the Search and Replace Addon to update some links etc. but this got my farther than anything else.
I have used this on several different sites and never encountered any problems. Thanks for the good work.
I struggled with a troublesome migration, and then found this gem. it would have saved me hours of banging my head against a wall. A much needed companion to the wordpress importer plugin.
i seldom give comment, nice work!
Using this plugin to migrate attachments worked like a charm. The only problem I saw, were some missing images due to the fact that upload was made by a user who is no longer assigned to the specific blog in a multisite.
This is a great idea for a plugin. Something we've needed for a long time!
My client I developed a theme for was moving off a managed hosting solution. Since it was super cheap hosting he didn't have access to anything just the WXP export. Crisis averted with Attachment Exporter. Good show!
It worked perfectly for me !
Thanks a lot ! :)
When trying to upload the demo content for a WP theme with the standard WordPress Importer as well as most of the other importer plugins around I always ended up with a lot of errors and a messed up database because there were too many/too large media files attached to the WXP file.
This plugin saved the day: I just uploaded the xml file, but without the attachments. Then used Attachment Importer to fetch the media files afterwards. Done!
The plugin needs a couple minutes (in my case almost half an hour), depending on the number of media files involved. But is simply works. Should have tried this in the first place. Would have saved me hours of trial and error.
Great plugin. Thanks for this, man!
