The plugin works really well! I had an error with my JSON file failing to import, which turned out to be caused by another plugin (User Switching v1.5.4). After disabling that plugin the JSON menu import worked perfectly. This is a great plugin!

(Edit for latest version - 1.5.0) Adds unknown links to your menu based on the ID of the exported menu items. Doesnt work well if you have a multisite and import the menu, or if your data is imported data and the ids arent exactly the same as the site which you exported from. Could resolve the issue to create the posts(pages) if they dont exist on import, the same issue arises if the archive pages on CPT dont exist.
