This is a really important point. I have tried using the migration plugin a number of times only to be met with “Sorry, it doesn’t work with your version” (my version always being the most up-to-date). It happened again recently when I was testing moving a site from WP5.5 with Woo over to CP and CC. I know it can be done manually but I always like to do things the way an average user would, so I can see any potential hurdles.
The most common scenario I can imagine is a user updating to the latest WP version, finding a bunch of issues and error messages, and thinking: “That’s it! I’ve had it with WP, I’m moving to CP”. So they download and install the migration plugin only to find it won’t do the job. At that point I expect we would lose many of them.
Can someone tell me what is required to bring the migration plugin updated to be working with the latest WP release? I don’t know anything about this; maybe it’s a complicated business that needs lots of testing so there will always be a considerable time lag.
