The WordPress Importer will import the following content from a WordPress export file:

  • Posts, pages and other custom post types
  • Comments
  • Custom fields and post meta
  • Categories, tags and terms from custom taxonomies
  • Authors

For further information and instructions please see the Codex page on Importing Content

Filters

The importer has a couple of filters to allow you to completely enable/block certain features:

  • import_allow_create_users: return false if you only want to allow mapping to existing users
  • import_allow_fetch_attachments: return false if you do not wish to allow importing and downloading of attachments
  • import_attachment_size_limit: return an integer value for the maximum file size in bytes to save (default is 0, which is unlimited)

There are also a few actions available to hook into:

  • import_start: occurs after the export file has been uploaded and author import settings have been chosen
  • import_end: called after the last output from the importer
