How did WP lose such a critical feature?
By , for WP 4.5.2

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

And still this doesn't work…

This plugin seems to appear from nowhere in my WP Plugin list.

I have never installed it or agreed to install it yet on various sites I have found it randomly appear when the site has not had any new content or plugins added etc.

If you find this plugin without adding it yourself I recommend remove all traces and checking your site to make sure it is still 1) yours 2) safe & secure

The last time I found the plugin installed I was lucky to have W***Fence installed which saved my site from being attacked further

Bug

WP_GET_HTTP depreciated. Please solve it.

Throws errors, fails to import media, no longer updated.

Why such a core functionality like content import/export of the most popular CMS in the world, is been neglected like this sad plugin is, I cannot comprehend.

I mostly use duplicator, wp all in one migration or updraft plus for my backup or migration needs, but in some usage scenarios you just need to export and import post, pages, media etc. This plugin should have been this basic tool for that - but it isn't.
