It works.
By , for WP 4.6

The plugin always does its job, nothing more, nothing less (at least for me).

Updated for WordPress 4.6
By , for WP 4.6

I use this plugin all the time between my site and a local staging installation. It's fantastic and now that It's updated for 4.6 it's even better.

Thanks.

Gives an error

Simplistic, but works
By , for WP 4.5.3

I regularly use this importer and exporter when replicating content to another site. It doesn't do anything fancy like prevent duplicate content, but it's a nice, simple tool to export and import page and post content reliably.

Keiner mehr da?
By , for WP 4.5.3

Hallo, ist bei WordPress.org keiner mehr dafür zuständig, das Plugin upzudaten?
Ich habe versucht, einen Ersatz zu finden, aber den gibt es offensichtlich nicht.
Ist WordPress jetzt am Ende?

ACF import with large fields problem
By , for WP 4.5.3

I have a problem when importing ACF xml files containing large rules (e.g. a set of nested fields and repeaters). Plugin simply adds an empty field. Please fix it.

Unreliable

Just stop with on error or explaination

Error prone
By , for WP 4.5.2

This importer is error prone, unpredictable and even doesn't work with simple post types. It is just annoying.

Generally it works and I would contact the author first for improvements, but this is a "core" plugin of WordPress.
