It is the best plugin of its kind that I have found.
Thank you very much!

Worked well for me

I just wanted to import a few posts from an old site, without losing their publish dates or breaking the database for the new site. It worked flawlessly, and didn't clobber existing posts or pages (all the comments were spam so I deleted those before export, so can't 'comment' on that function).

Featured images not working

Hi there,
If you only plan to import posts without featured images it is OK.
If you try to import post WITH featured images, than you have to do it one by one.
If you try to import more than ONE posts with featured images, than it bugs has all the post will show but all of them with the same featured image.


Not really working.

Never, ever works first time.

Surely there has to be a better option or improvements that can be made to this plugin.

Yes it's free and yes it works eventually (sometimes after 9-10 attempts) but it's one of the most frustrating plugins to use.

Currently about to try for the 5th time to import 10 pages and 22 blog posts on a fresh install.

It's just painful.

*update, took 14 attempts. FOURTEEN !!!!!

**another update - NO LONGER IMPORTS IMAGES !!!!


can anyone recommend an alternative?

**Another update Sept 2015 **

Tried to import some Woocommerce content. After 90 minutes of trying and retrying i've now given up.

An embarrassment to WordPress.
