Worked perfectly for me, importing posts, pages and media. Great Plugin!

Works but with limitations
By , for WP 4.1

I've used this successfully on smaller blogs. Seems to have an issue with larger files. Sometimes you have to break up the xml file with larger imports, which is a bit of a pain. This would seem to be an area that the core team might want to focus on for future releases. The other limitation is when you're working in a shared environment. Memory issues, PHP timeout errors etc all come into play. I for one hope this plug in gets a make over real soon. You don't need to import often but when you do, it would be really nice to know there's a solid solution that will work you can use.

These errors show up when I activate the importer plugin and go to Tools > Import.

Stuck in step 2
By , for WP 4.1

I'm stuck at step 2, blank page appears. I've used this plugin before and worked really well, not now. I've read that there're problems with WP version 4.1.

Does what it says

Bad solution
By , for WP 4.1

Unfortunately its literally not working with 4.1.

Often have problems with menu import - sometimes it goes fine and sometimes not.

Do not import the reading home and blog pages too. Would be nice to add this feature.

Its sad that such a widely used plugin does not get enough attention.
