Is this ever going to get fixed?
By , for WP 3.9.2

This is severely screwing up my site not having this plugin working. I can't upload any of the dummy content and plugins specifically from the creator in order to have the site run. I doubt WP is going to fix this any time soon. I am beyond mad.

Plugin doesn't work
By ,

This plugin is broken. It does not import images or featured images and maybe more. A quick search reveals that it has been broken for some time. Moving content around is a critical part of any active blog. The fact that this has been going on for so long disappoints me.

Lacks key features
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin won't work unless you are importing tiny blogs or do have a badass server that won't choke on a 2MB import file.

WordPress really needs to make a staggered importer and bring support for on-server files. You can't rely on max_upload_size directives to import a medium blog these days.

Can't import images

Nice, but can't import any image...

'Push Button' pack up and move!

If you need to move your WP, this importer will make it easy.

Thank you, WordPress!!

Simple but effective

It works like a charm!

Stopped importing images
By , for WP 3.6

It used to work well but now no longer imports images. It is still better than nothing but it really would be much better if it was fixed so that it brought the images across as well.

Broken for too long
By , for WP 3.6

While the WP team has been hard at improving many aspects of WordPress this is one aspect that has been severely neglected! For months the WordPress Importer has not functioned correctly. Tons of unresolved tickets in the support forums with common problems like media not being imported correctly.
