Imports content from a given WXR file.
wp import <file>... --authors=<authors> [--skip=<data-type>]
Provides a command line interface to the WordPress Importer plugin, for performing data migrations.
<file>... Path to one or more valid WXR files for importing. Directories are also accepted. --authors=<authors> How the author mapping should be handled. Options are 'create', 'mapping.csv', or 'skip'. The first will create any non-existent users from the WXR file. The second will read author mapping associations from a CSV, or create a CSV for editing if the file path doesn't exist. The CSV requires two columns, and a header row like "old_user_login,new_user_login". The last option will skip any author mapping. [--skip=<data-type>] Skip importing specific data. Supported options are: 'attachment' and 'image_resize' (skip time-consuming thumbnail generation).
