Makes Life So Much Easier
By , for WP 4.0.1

Can't imagine what a drag it would be to do all this manually on the MYSQL end of things. Love this handy helper.

a necessary feature some CMS are missing. This is crucial for my projects. Using the importer is much easier than transfer data manually to the data base. thank you for that tool

Does it's job! And does it well.

Whenever importing content from an either defunct blog or wordpress.com site I've never run into any issues. Not sure why this isn't just included with WordPress, but I'm sure there's a reason.

It works perfect with wp 3.9 and wp 4.1

This plugin it is fantastic and be careful with the bad reviews because some can come from paid plugins owners...

There are some things to have in mind if you are importing lots of post like in my case 100.000.

If you have your site in a shared host I would recommend to do it local and then upload the db to the production server so you can increase the php variables:
memory_limit =128M
post_max_size = 64M
upload_max_filesize = 64M

Also will be better to do chunks of 20000 items.

If you are getting duplicates categories the typical cat_1 cat_2 etc thing it is probably because you have some rubbish in the terms table that are not showing in the category or taxonomy you are using.

you maybe also have to update the count of the taxonomy table

Thanks for the plugin,

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

still wonder why such plugins are not part of the core
By , for WP 4.0

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.
