Hello, I have purchased this plugin and installed it. I installed this plugin in old site and new site as well. From old site i exported the posts which is total 2900 posts using your plugin and it went good. Now when i import that posts to new site using the same plugin its taking nearly 1 hour to import just 20 posts. Then how can i import all my 2900 posts using this plugin ? Please suggest me what we can do. Export is good. but import is too bad. Please help us.
Here is the license code for the plugin i purchased : c5d61d13-ef49-47d0-8a23-a8f1811fcb38
Is post contains big images as it takes time to download image. Normally if you try import with 1000 posts, it takes only few mins to import as you can test it on demo also. Please check for image as that might be issue. In case you are not able to figure out, then please send access details, We will check it for you.
Where i can send the access ?
You can send detail via email using profile page. Thanks
Ok. I just sent you the access through profile. please check and let me know. We are in tight deadline. Please help me to complete this soon. Thanks in advance
Hello, Any update ? I had sent you the website access.
Hello! Please add the ability to update posts by id. And the choice is only to update the posts, without creating new posts.
Sure, we will try for to add this feature in next version. Thanks
I need to move a single page with all the comments that are connected to that page and move it to another WordPress installation. Is the plugin going to do the job?
Even better – if I could only take the comments for that page and export them to a file and then import to a WooCommerce product in another website that would be awesome.
Can the plugin do that?
Yes, you can first try it on demo also by exporting and importing data.
Please check and let me know in case of any issue. Thanks
I have discovered an odd bug when using this plugin. When importing sample data into a CPT that uses ACF (Text and Text Area) fields it causes a strange issue with the Post Archive. Basically when you are logged into Wordpress some posts are not displayed and others are duplicated. But when I log out of Wordpress they all display correctly.
I have tried deactivating all plugins and even switching to the twenty seventeen theme but the issue remains.
Please note this ONLY happens AFTER I have imported the data into the Companies CPT using Wordpress Awesome Import/Export plugin.
Last time this happened I had to do a complete fresh install of Wordpress to get posts to display properly again, but now I’ve managed to replicate the issue.
Any help would be much appreciated!.
I cant contact you directly with login details because my support has expired, but as it’s a BUG any help would be appreciated.
Also, when downloading the latest version of the plugin from codecanyon if I open the file wp-awesome-import-export.php the version number says 2.6.1, but on the main plugin page here it says the latest version should be 2.7
I’ve now sent you login details via the ‘Email developer’ option on codecanyon.
Not had any reply and I really need to start building this site so I will leave the site and login details for the sub-domain I was using and then start a fresh install on another sub-domain and try a different Import plugin.
I am trying to load posts to a forum.
My file format is post_title | post_content | post_date | post_author
I am able to load posts to the site but not to a particular forum / group.
How do I specify that the posts go to a particular forum / group.
Please note that my input file is a pipe delimited CSV.
You need to check how forum data is stored in the that forum part. After that you can map fields in similar ways of that forum table and import it.
Sorry, I should have said, the target site runs Buddypress and bbPress.
To do the mapping I need to know what field to map to.
I am expecting a field such as post_group_id or post_group_name or something that identifies the group.
My problem is that I do not decide what the available mappings are. Your code presents the available mappings when I load my CSV file.
How does it decide what mappings are possible?
Additionally… I am importing posts from a non-WP site therefore my input file has no group or forum data fields.
Although clearly I could add them if I knew what to set them to.
Yes, you can import any kind of data but you need to understand where to import data and how to show that data. For example, if you want to import forum data to post and post meta, you can do so by import post option. or if you want to import it to particular table, you can use import table option. Let me know if it is clear now or do you need any more explanation. Thanks
OK, I was able to import Topics data using the Custom Post import.
The Topics are added in date/time order except for the first record of the import file which is added last.
All other Topics added are in the correct date/time order.
This looks like a classic programming initialisation error where the first record is treated differently to all other records.
I can provide you with test data & access to my site if you wish.
Let me explain this, we are getting data as array and converting it to xml object using php simplexml function. This function requires data to be properly formatted else it gives error. I hope it is clear to you now. Thanks
The data I am importing is actually from an entirely different forum.
The format is not under my control.
Or more accurately, the data in the post_content section can be very complex and may contain characters or sequences of characters that may break an XML conversion attempt.
Is there a way that I could proof test my CSV import file to see if it would pass your XML conversion?
Ideally a utility or program or even something online that I can load the CSV file into and it would tell me if there is an issue that would break the XML conversion?
OK, I was able to load the Topics OK but 66% of the Replys were “Skipped”.
Is there a log file somewhere with further information on why records are “Skipped”?
OK… it looks like I have the same number of Replys as Topics.
Which looks like I was only able to add one Reply per Topic.
So, in my import file I have set the post_parent id for each Reply for each Topic to be that Topics post id.
So for Topic “A” with post_id 12354 I have set the
post_parent of Reply “A1” to 12354
post_parent of Reply “A2” to 12354
post_parent of Reply “A3” to 12354
Do I need to set the post_parent of Reply “A2” to be the post_id of Reply “A1” ?
Doesn’t look like it.
I manually added two replies to post_id 12935.
The replies were created with IDs 13597 and 13598 and BOTH have post_parent of 12935.
OK, I tried a new test. I tried to add 7 replies to a topic. Each reply has the same post_parent.
Every reply was skipped.
There is settings to skip the records or update the records. Please check settings page. Thanks
Duplicate post title?
Skip or update?
Each Reply “Post Title” is the same… because obviously if you have :
as the Topic title then if seven people reply to a Topic with title of “ABC” the reply post title from everyone will be
Seven replies each with the same post title.
Is this a WP restriction? Replies cannot have identical post titles?
OK, if I choose “update” replies are added.
Which is what I wanted to happen but if I had actually wanted them to be “updated” I would have been a bit disappointed.
Therefore it would be a useful additional function to have “Add” and then “Update” could actually mean update.
Ok, I will try to add this feature in next version. Thanks
Thanks. I chose your plugin over many other similar plugin because of the support which you offer. I appreciate your conscientious attitude.
I have myself, a shareware product which I have been supporting on my own via a dedicated forum for 17 years so I know how much effort is involved.
It’s great that you are a developer and understand the efforts. We will do it for sure, please allow us some time, we will let you know once done Thanks.
I’ve figured it out. The importer did not like the content wrapped in a ”< div >” or a ”< span >< span >” at the beginning of each content cell. I did a find and replace to remove the opening and closing tags from the CSV and the tool accepted the import.
So I decided to Export the posts with type Forum, Topic and Reply as XML in order to reverse engineer an XML import file.
Forum went OK but I got an error when trying to export the Topics.
“This page contains the following errors:
error on line 84 at column 7: xmlParseEntityRef: no name
Below is a rendering of the page up to the first error.”
There might be some issue in the data of Topics table that is not allowing to correctly format XML. XML has standard structure as you know and any incorrect data might be causing it. Please check data.Thanks
I’m having a problem with the incorrect dates occuring on post import. Both sites use the same date format, but the months and days are backwards – my sites are set to UK date format (dd/mm) but it looks like the plug-in is reading them in US format (mm/dd) regardless of how they’re set.
I’ve seen reference to date format options in Settings but that’s not available for me.
Am I missing something?
You can set date format in settings of plugin and wordpress setting page. It uses wordpress insert function and consider dates as per wordpress settings for date. Please check.
Ah it’s cos my date formats weren’t the same on each blog. It seems to be correct now – there’s still no obvious date format settings in the plugin options though!
Hi guys… I have built a new website and got your product to import and export data… I have exported Woo Commerce Sales through the porthole but I cannot find how to import into the new website… There does not seem to be an option there in the interface for this. Can you please assist? Many thanks and kind regards
Your demo login does not work. Also, in the browser tab title it says “shit”. Is that supposed to be a joke? It’s not funny or professional.
We have to give access of admin panel to show demo but Someone has misused this and hacked our demo website. We have just resolved this. You can check it. Thanks
In addition to the demo not working and your unprofessional message. The plugin is not working for us and we want a refund.
As I explain, the website was hacked. It was not our message. Can you let us know what issue you are having with plugin. We are here to help you. If it is not working for you, then we have no issue in refund you. Thanks
I am using ListingPro – WordPress Directory Theme can i import listings from csv ?
Can this plugin support the custom listing fields of this theme while import ?
Plugin supports import of the custom post fields (normally used by different listing themes). You can purchase plugin and try it. If it doesn’t work then let us know, we will check once and if not working, we will refund you. Thanks
Hello, I just bought and installed the plugin. After activate it, I noticed that I can’t change settings like “default post status”, “duplicate post title” and “CSV delimiter”in settings page. If I change them and click in save, the settings returns to original values. I already test deactivate and re-activate plugins, without success. Any help?
Please send access details via email using profile page. We will check it. Thanks
Sorry mate, but I’m very disappointed with this plugin and would request a refund.
My purchase is: 6bcf6b38-a412-45a6-8e01-5c97dffa3d00
Not sure how you can credit me, but I’d appreciate you returning my license fee. I have removed the plugin from my site and replaced with one that fully supports TYPES.
We have no information about why it didn’t work for you. Plugin does everything that is mentioned in it’s description. Regarding types plugin, we don’t have any control over other plugin so we never mentioned butit supports everything else than repeater fields.
If It doesn’t work for you, we are ready to refund. You can submit refund request here. We will approve it.
You can submit your refund request here on codecanyon. We will approve it. Thanks
Yes, thanks, I would like a refund.
As described in the comments, Awesome simply did not register the Types custom fields. These were plain single-line, non-repeating fields.
I did my best to look very carefully through the list of avilable fields, but, as noted, it was very difficult due to the cramped select list presentation and the mish-mash of namespace treatments used to display the fields.
In any event, I am not sure how to “request” the refund except through this email.
It works with single line field of types plugin. You can also test same in demo.
But anyways, you can submit refund request here on following form after login.
Can the plugin export a single post? Client wants to export his weekly post about a topic. Thanks.
Yes, it can export specific post by Id. Please check demo also. Thanks
Thanks – this is exactly what we need
We got a huge website to merge to new website, the old website has over 10,000 posts, I got below questions.
1. How can we move everything include some specific meta data and featured image to new site?
2. Can I moved 10000 posts together or I need to move say 1000 each time? I reckon the import and export process will be time out, since we got so many posts.
3. Can I export post via categories? Then I can move each categories every time.
4. Will it double posts or categories if I already have the posts or categories?
5. Do I need to create a new template to match the old website meta data or I can match them when I am migrating the posts.
I am looking forwards to hearing from you, thank you.
Had to migrate nearly 9k posts. The plugin did most of the job, it got stuck at the end around 99% but I guess nothing’s perfect. Seems that some of my attachments are missing too. Just FYI to whoever’s reading since the plugin dev didn’t reply the last guy; I was waiting to know the answers too.
please send more details about what missing in email, we will check it and make it 100% working for you. Thanks
I’m looking for a solution to transfer data from a csv file to post and postmeta tables . The data is for a custom post type with custom fields made using Pods. Can you parse the csv file and put the proper information in the post and postmeta tables?
yes, it can be done using this plugin. You can test it before buying using demo. Please check and let us know in case of any issue. Thanks
I tried the demo and I couldn’t tell if the data was imported or not. My need is to transfer 20,000 rows of data from a non-WordPress database. I mapped my test CSV file containing about 75 rows of data to the post table. All but two fields, the id and post_title, were mapped as Add Meta Fields with their field name. After the import, I tried to export the post_meta table and couldn’t download it. The download link sent me to the demo home page.
This is not WooCommerce data, it’s in a custom post type with about 30 custom fields. It would be great if I could see that the imported data is being properly parsed into the postmeta table. Is there a way for the demo to show me the data that was transferred to postmeta after the import?
You can send us csv file via email. We will import data and show to you. Thanks
Hi… I have just bought and used your plugin – the issue that I was trying to resolve was having all the featured images imported as the wordpress importer didn’t do this for me – however, inspite of exporting the file and making sure that it was mapped correctly on the import file, the images still haven’t been added. Can you help please
Sure, let me know the details. Please send me details via email using profile page. Thanks
The plugin does not install. I get an error message: Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
That’s strange. Please send us details via email using profile page. we will do basic installation for you. Thanks
