Import posts, pages, comments, custom fields, categories, tags and more from a WordPress export file.
Not sure about all the bad ratings, it does what it says
This plugin is actually misguide users. If I move the hosting than it should export all my current data including images and also all settings (all options) so it should setup all things on import.
But currently it's exporting only content of post types only.
What I expect is that the export and import process will actually clone my existing site to new site.
It worked as stated - surprisingly fast!
Imported only few images: no posts no categories no other media.
Usually works but sometimes doesn't upload images. Would have given it 3 stars but this plugin seems unnecessary for a plugin as it should be in the wordpress core
This plugin clearly has not been deisgned to be timeout tolerant.
Therefore, if you have bought a theme from themeforest.net or the like, and want to import sample content, most of the times it won't terminate importing items due to timeout.
Then you have the double trouble of cleaning up and solving the timeout problem.
Being this a crucial plugin, this plugin should be extended with a timeout-tolerant logic.
I have used this thing dozens and dozens of times, each time thinking it would be easier than a MYSQL import. I am almost always wrong.
Image import fails far too much. Often it will show failed imports and they are actually imported. And if the xml is large, count on it failing.
As stated by others, this is a simple function and should actually be core.
Meh, I guess I should make my own and quit crying about the issues with this thing.
Use phpMyadmin tool instead.
Very glitchy, doesn't import images or documents properly
