Definitely useful in a tight situation
By , for WP 4.4.2

I am adding this plugin to my arsenal of website development plugins.

I had to transfer post and pages that were previously migrated from an old wordpress structure.

Many media files from the exported website were showing to be an item in the media library however were not in the file structure returning 404 errors which caused the import to be a mess!

I kept having timeout issues when importing the large XML file, I even split it into small 200k files without any luck. This plugin helped me isolate the attachment import process which allowed me to import the whole large XML export XML without attachments. I then imported a separate XML that only contained the attachments for the posts and pages with https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-attachment-export/.

This plugin ran in the background processing the attachment imports without any timeout issues!

Great plugin, please keep updating!

Worked great
By , for WP 4.3.1

This saved me from quite a headache. Working with a custom post type containing nearly 1000 posts, all with a very large amount of custom field groups and fields for each, including image attachments that weren't properly importing with the WP Importer plugin. I ran this right after and it picked up all the image attachments from the .xml file and assigned them appropriately. Huge time saver, thanks!

Why is this not the official importer?
By , for WP 4.1

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.

reliable and easy

Saved my ass

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.

You've saved my ass!

i seldom give comment, nice work!

Excellent for large sites
By , for WP 3.9.1

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.
