It worked for us
By , for WP 4.3

We exported posts with featured images attached from another website using Export Featured Images. We used WordPress Importer to import them. No errors.

Did exactly what I needed
By , for WP 4.2.2

This plugin did exactly what I needed it to do.

I was creating a new version of my site and I needed to import about thirty posts and thirty images.

Thanks for making the handy plugin.

A very good plugin, I use it for long time.

Works when importing .xml to local computer
By , for WP 4.2.2

I note the importer says "Choose a file from your computer: (Maximum size: 2 MB)". My .xml file (created from a wordpress.com blog) was 545 kiloBytes, so maybe that's why it worked for me.

My blog has 111 posts each with a fairly large image. Using theme Duotone.

I notice that many people say that they end up with the images displayed being still the ones on their original wordpress site. Not in my case. All the images arrived at my local computer and by looking at the web page's html source I can see that the local files are being accessed.

It will be interesting to see if it is equally easy uploading to a remote computer.

Works as expected. Easy to use. Thank you WordPress.org team.

Perfect import when you use prebuilt themes
By , for WP 4.2.2

This is the perfect plugin to when you need to import demo data for a pre-built theme, never needed to use it for any other reason.
