This plugin caused my site to crash
By , for WP 4.2.2

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.

Only works on minified html
By , for WP 4.1.1

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.

Works Wonderful!

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

It very useful plugin.

So helpful!
By , for WP 3.8

What an amazing plugin - does not get enough recognition. I do wish there was a bit better documentation explaining each area better, and would love if there was a way to assign all posts to a date, but I guess you can do that after it's important with the bulk edit.

Makes it Happen!

Really useful, does exactly what it says and is very flexible. Really impressed considering it's totally free. Thanks for this!

3 suggestions for improvement:
1) The menu item should be under the Tools directory, not the Settings directory. After the import is done, we end up there anyway, then have to click over to the Settings area again. Maybe a "Do another import" button at the confirmation page would be useful.

2) It'd be great if we could select the parent category, and sub-directories within there would be populated in sub-categories as well. That would make importing posts into categories a DREAM!

3) A "Save and Import" button would be much preferred as well. As-is, you have to hit "Save" and then after refresh "Import". I can see why you'd want each individually, but a combo button would reduce clicks and refreshes by A LOT.

Thanks again!
