Export media with selected content


When selecting one post type in the WordPress export screen, by default the linked media (attachments) are not included.

This plugin adds an „Export media with selected content“ option. When checked, the plugin tries to find featured images and included media in the post_content, adding them to the export file.


  • "Export media with selected content" checkbox option now available in the Export screen.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/export-media-with-content directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‚Plugins‘ screen in WordPress



This plugin is essencial for xml export, because that the export default not working good.

It worked saving a lot of work

Very good plugin! The exporting/importing including the attachments was always a problem without this plugin. When a plugin works, saves you a lot of work and does what expected as in this case, it deserves 5 stars. Very good job!

Export limit

This plug-in works very good. Only there seems a limit to the number of posts you can export. If I try to export the posts of more then one month, I get a file of 249 bytes. I have to export posts of 15 years, so it will become quit a job now. Maybe there is a simple solution for this.
