Bad Ass

I don't know how much time I've wasted importing sites only to find all the media is referenced externally... thankyou for creating this plugin.

Idea for next version, allow the user to select which post type, or custom post type to scan for images to import... probably on yer list ;-)

Will be using this plugin regularly.


P.S. I had no problems using this plugin on a site running with the newest version of WordPress 4.1.1 with tons of plugins and customizations.

Awesome time-saver

This plugin worked like a charm & saved me a TON of time. So simple- just install, click the button to import images, & once it's done you're good to go! A great tool for a common issue in WordPress.

This plugin saved me massive money and time! Awesome plugin!

Huge thanks to Marty Thornley for this awesome plugin! Worked like a charm and solved a huge issue!

I had a client with multiple sites and massive blog posts on each site. I imported all the posts and the image urls were all pointing to the old site media urls. I ran this plugin and it downloaded all the images, repaired all the image links in all the posts from all the different blogs!

This plugin ROCKS!

Works Great.
Can it be run as a Cron Job?

Also, importing of image meta data would be really nice.

So helpful

Thanks so much! I had years of blog posts with images still in /images/. This plugin helped me import them quickly, without any trouble at all. One tip, I had photon turned on through Jetpack, so I added wp.com to the list of domain names to skip. Thanks again for this plugin!

Was wondering how I was gonna get 1K images imported while preserving the proper post attachments. Thanks for the solution. Even changes the ref of an anchor tag on an img.

Your Donate link doesn't go to a page where I can send $s. If it did, you'd have a bit of my cash.

insanely good

This solves a simple, but really annoying problem and it does it seemlessly.

Surprisingly great.
