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.

This is a great idea for a plugin. Something we've needed for a long time!

Works great for when you don't have access to a DB Dump
By , for WP 3.8.1

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!

Great for importing WXP files with lots of attachments
By , for WP 3.8.1

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!
