Hello, after exporting an XML file to a blog and after import this XML in a empty Wordpress installation (to a new URL), the result is often a broken Library: it's missing thumbs, as you can see here:

But if I clic on empty thumb, the media is ok and appear also on the website. As you can see here, after clicking empty thumb, the media is here:

After many days of research and try tips found on the forums, plugin tests... I finally found the ultimate plugin that repair the problem:

The subject is vast on the Internet if you search "wordpress broken library after moving" or "wordpress plugin repair library"... so i think that there is a problem in the core of WordPress, missing a function "regenerate library" or "repair library".
