works as described!
Perfect, saved me a lot of trouble
Works described, but I did hit the timeout issue. Rather than fiddling with PHP/Server settings I just split the XML file up. More specifically I saw where the import had left off and I just deleted those items and retried the import.
Perhaps you can add a "batch" parameter where the user could split the imports into batches of 25, 50, 75, 100 files. From my experiences with a vanilla install I think 50 would be a sensible default. Then again this may be dependent upon a myriad of factors...
How I do it:
1. Install & activate 'WP Attachment Export' plugin in old WP site.
2. In old WP site, run export, and download the .xml.
3. Copy entire 'uploads' folder from old WP installation to the new one.
4. From new WP Dashboard, run Tools-> Import -> WordPress, and upload the .xml file.
Note: I ran them in localhost.
Very helpful and right on time.
I needed to export all the meta data, alt tags etc...worked like a charm.
Plugin works great. Thanks!
This is great and very useful!
Thanks a lot for very important plugin
I export media form wp 3.9.2 and import it in wp 4.0.1 easily !
I was trying to move a "Media Library" for around 2,000 attachments, it led to a big wxr file, around 25 MiB, and as I could import it, the media library always timed out. This made a smaller file (~ 3MiB, which gzipped were around 300 KiB) and thanks to that, I could do it with two tries.
I hope the author keep updating this :)
Note: I exported from a multisite using 3.5.2 and imported using the standard imported into a brande new 3.9.1
