Went through the settings page and filled in everything. Import claims it worked and no new page or post created. Tested this with both folder and single file upload.
I must admit I had very low expectations for the ability of this plugin to import a site from a webhost's proprietary webbuilder app, so it wouldn't have been that hard to exceed them.
However, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the import went. Plugin did well grabbing HTML and images, not so well with preserving the page hierarchy. Lots of tinkering with titles, parents, and the menu left to do, but still. Getting the bulk of the content imported saved me hours. Thanks!
Saved me so much time
Very useful plugin. Worked great. Excellent documentation on the developer's site, too. It was a bit of a read, but afterwards I did the entire import correctly the very first time. Thank you!
I installed and activated this plugin and my site crashed instantly. So I went into my remote DNS provider account deactivated the plugin and my site came back up. So I uninstalled the plugin, everything has been ok since then. My theme is PhotoStory Premium version 1.1.6 By Tomas Toman.
Maybe it is my error somewhere. I have blamed a plugin before for problems on my site, and then realized that I was in error after further investigation.
The description says:
Imports well-formed HTML files into WordPress pages.
However, it does not do this job for me as my html is not minified even though it is well-formed.
The details are here: Does not treat white space properly
This plugin might be good for transferring existing sites to WP but not for my needs.
This came very handy to me in a number of occasions. I must say I'm impressed of how well it works and how beautifully thought of this plugin is. Still can't believe it is offered for free. Thank you so much for releasing this, it saved me a lot of time and energy!
Worked well for me with a bit of massaging of the data.
When in need of importing tons of content from HTML static pages, this is a must have tool to migrate properly all your static content
Thanks! This plugin has saved me a lot of time importing more than a hundred articles from an old HTML site. Very flexible options. Highly recommended.
