WP-2-WP Import with files or not

As I understand it, if you Export "All Content" then, on import, you can, "Download and import file attachments."

But if you only export, eg, Posts by Author or Category or Date, then when you Import, checking "Download and import file attachments" will NOT DL & Import File Attachments -- is that right?

I can't imagine a case, or at least it isn't my case, where you'd want posts at a new site to have all their image links pointing to posts at an old site that you're very likely to be taking down, so...

Is there a way to force import to actually "Download and import file attachments"? Or a plugin? Or an alternate technique?

Thank You! :slight_smile:
