Wow, reviews here seem to go mainly to extremes, 5 stars or 1 star, not so much in between. So I installed this carefully, and read the instructions carefully, ticked the right boxes and Hey Presto! Everything worked! No problems! So yes, from me also, just simply 5 stars.

I tried a few other plugins to transfer users before this and they didn't work. This one did the trick fast. I wish I found it first.
