No matter what is done it comes up with errors on the local as well as on the live server. Does not import users, does not import pages, does not import media, says it timed out though execution time is even set to 360s and still it times out, had two pros dealing with this and no matter how the server, live or local is set up it fucks up the import, lost a couple of days with this rubbish, do yourself a BIG favor and keep away from this.

Looking at the support there is not a single reply in months from any of the devs. No support given. Great WordPress.org, just great!

fails to download and import file attachments
By , for WP 4.2.3

I want to use this to export and import just my posts, with of course the images attached. No matter how I do it - posts only or export all content - it will not download and import my file attachments. This is even though I'm working on sites on the same server, and my file size is relatively tiny.

I have looked back through the forum and this has been a problem for over 4 years!

This is such a basic problem that I'm extremely disappointed WordPress hasn't fixed this yet. So they get you started billing it as easy for non-software engineers, but this is clearly a basic function that should be available.

Please fire whoever coded this absolute rubbish. I almost couldn't bring myself to post this review as there is no option for zero stars. Thanks for wasting hours of my time. Why the hell would this feature need a plugin anyway?

Never works as expected
By , for WP 4.2.2

It seems like every time I've used this, I've encountered a different issue. Users not being imported, media being left behind, the import file being too large, having to split it into multiple chunks. I've spent so much time googling and troubleshooting failed imports, and it seems there are just too many variables differing from server to server that prevent this from being useful. I've just given up and do everything with FTP and MYSQL now.

Awesome plug-in and service too!

Great stuff.

Duplicates Content
By , for WP 4.2.2

Duplicates pages, content, custom menus, etc. every time you click import file.

WordPress needs to step it up and update.

It worked properly!

Only the images haven't been inported properly.
Thank you!

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.
