its well done, and very reliable.

0.6.1 broken with WP 4.4.2
By , for WP 4.4.2

HEADS UP: the 0.6.1 release breaks with WP 4.4.2, complaining it cannot find the class DOMDocument. I downgraded to the previous version, 0.6 and it functions perfectly fine. Previous versions can be found under the Developers tab at the top of this screen.

Awesome plug-in and service too!

Great tool but only 4 stars
By , for WP 3.8

It's a great tool but I would give it only 4 stars.
For the 5th star it would have to give me few more options that would assist me in importing the data.

Muy bueno

Lo unico malo es que a veces falla al importar las imágenes y también a veces duplica las categorías, pero lo uso muy a menudo y me ahorra mucho trabajo.

Big Relief. Just imported a larger older site with about 1,180 articles. All came over including all images and attachments.
I installed Jetpack to insure a similar environment and matched WP.com permalinks to reduce confusion - they're also better for SEO.

So far the only bugs are:
- the import gives 0 feedback and does not refresh when done. Thus you cannot tell when it is safe to use other admin tools
- the in-post images lost their text wrap settings. So they take up a bar of space. Not huge for me.
- all the links inside posts to other posts are still pointing back at the old site. It means I have to maintain the WP.com referral service indefinitely. Thats a disappointment but modest cost.

Considering the many horror stories I've heard, I'm very happy to see it all OK and functional.

Considering the ability to migrate from site to site is one of WP's selling points, I'm surprised they have not polished this more.
