2.4 out of 5 - and every review negative except one?!

I'm not even going to try it until there's a new release fixing the PHP / CGI problem.

Thanks, other reviewers, for saving me the grief!

Errors

Fatal error when using PHP as CGI
By , for WP 4.3.1

The plugin doesn't take into consideration that PHP can sometimes installed as CGI. It tries to execute the function apache_get_modules() which is not available in this case, so it crashes with a fatal error.

Even if I removed that function and added an empty array on its place, when I went ahead and tried to upload an xml file to import, it gives a 500 internal server error.

So this plugin needs some serious work. Please don't submit plugins that are not tested thoroughly.

An Awesome Plugin

The plugin do not work, and it only waste time and you have to fix your website setting after using it

crash

I thought since it had been updated since the last review I would give it a try. Bad idea. Locked up my site, I'll have to manually remove it or restore from backup.

Ka-Boom!

Installed, activated and it threw about a dozen errors, preventing me from accessing the Dashboard. Had to manually remove the plugin to regain access/control of my site. And, no I'm not running thing particularly exotic.

You may want to take a pass on this. Could really ruin a WordPress novice/intermediate user's day.

Doesn't work

A log is shown with every article to be imported. It says they are imported, but no post at all is created.

Terrible customer service, terrible plugin, all terrible don't use!

I have a site I'm developing for a business and I need to get it done somewhat quickly. I installed this plugin because so many others had and though it looked good. It was glitchy from the beginning and would screw up REPEATEDLY.

At that point I needed it to work so I went to their site and ordered it online and paid for it. The site said I would get an email with all the info I needed. I never received the email, the pro plugin or anything. I was in a bind and got no responses from anyone.

I bought and loaded A DIFFERENT PLUGIN which worked wonderfully and I highly recommend. Not glitchy, no missing data. just an all around better product.

At that point I was hoping to get my money back. I emailed the developer and he basically said it was a digital product and I should "buzz off". I wasn't getting anything back. I've emailed them numerous times with no response.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE. IT'S A RIP OFF. AVOID THEM!

No importa correctamente las imágenes
By , for WP 4.1.1

Las imágenes no las importa correctamente cuando importas un xml de un blog de wordpress.com a un hosting privado. Las imágenes se suben a tu servidor, pero las entradas no carga las imágenes correctamente. Siguen teniendo enlace a wordpress.com no al hosting. Y las galerías tienen los ids de las imágenes que había en wordpress.com, y al subirlas a tu hosting ese id ya no coincide, por lo que las galerías no se muestran correctamente. Este problema pasa con la mayoría de los plugins de este tipo.
