Where is WordPress HTML Import Tool?

In the WordPress documentation here:


It states that there is a specific tool on WordPress for importing HTML files. However, that option does not appear under the Tools –> Import screen. I see several import options, but none for “HTML”. How do I get the HTML Import tool available for use from the dashboard?

Here is what the documentation says:

WordPress includes an import tool designed specifically for importing content from static HTML pages.

  1. In your WordPress site, select Tools -> Import on the left nav of the admin screen.
  2. Under “HTML”, click the “Run Importer” link.
  3. Click “Choose File” and navigate to your HTML file.
  4. Click “Upload file and import”.
