love this plugin.It imports all your products with description and media files too.
A must have plugin for every one.

Can't do the job by itself
By , for WP 4.0

I am installing a clean wordpress on my machine (localhost) and trying to copy the online content (a few thounsand images and posts). The only way I could do that with the importer is to import posts&pages with this plugin and images with the Attachment Importer plugin (https://wordpress.org/plugins/attachment-importer/).

Nope

Don't waste your time with this plugin, instead go the backup buddy route. Too many problems with this plugin and as others have mentioned it won't move your media.

Two fails in one weekend
By , for WP 4.0

Attempted to use this plugin twice on two completely separate and clean WP installs. Both failed; one - with over 400 CPTs - failed to import featured images (was up until 4am fixing that one) and the other just failed to import anything with a 403 error - I didn't have permission to access wp-admin/admin.php, apparently. Beware!

still wonder why such plugins are not part of the core

this is a must use for so many occasions like import/export, staging/live kind of wordpress xml imports, should've been definitely part of the core.

Featured Image mapping
By , for WP 4.0

Not only does this plugin not import images, but any post with an assigned Featured Image is mapped incorrectly.

It could work better. However. It helped me. Thanks

This plugin needs work. Wastes my time everytime.

Maybe it's the XML wordpress exports, or maybe it's this import plugin, but migrating a blog from one host to another shouldn't hurt this bad.

This simply can not handle attachments. Try the wordpress attachment importer for that.
