This plugin is so slow... need updates and fixes so bad.

Missing: importer integrated in wordpress core
By , for WP 4.5.2

What good is an export tool in wordpress core to export xml, when there is no equivalent import tool?

This importer plugin produces an error message and the developers do not seem to do anything about it (see masses of support requests).

Is this working reliably or not? I don't dare to use it. And without a way to move data from one wordpress install to another, I have to reconsider wordpress as a platform.

does its job

its well done, and very reliable.

How did WP lose such a critical feature?

Losing the ability to move content to a new site is really a nightmare.

Half the Job Done
By , for WP 4.5.2

I used it on one site one month ago and it worked fine.

Tried on another site today, and only imported posts and pages. Importing images failed completely.

Quite upset with the plugin since once it works, once it doesn't...
