importing pagelines section items from like collapser and project type things

Recommended Posts

hi.

 

this might not be possible but I'm moving from 1 dev site to another.

 

one of the items that didn't come over was any of the collapser or projects stuff I had on the old site.

 

is there a way to easily move those? I can do it by hand but this lady had a bunch of collapser work done.

 

or is this more a section by section issue I need to bring up with those developers? but I'm kinda guessing either its not going to work as a whole, or its doable across the board.

 

thanks,

Hi,

 

How did you migrate content?

 

The PageLines settings export utility is for settings.  WordPress Export tools should migrate all content.

hi. I migrated by doing a pagelines options export and also my pages and posts using the WP-tools.

 

just none of the collapser stuff came over. I think I'll just do it by hand.

 

but in theory that should have pulled itself with the pagelines other stuff?

 

it seems like those items are posts but not quite posts. they are a bit of  a pain to deal with and make things kinda manual. I haven't found a way to make a bunch of them fast like I can with Quick Posts or something.

Hi there,

 

I've not used that plugin before so I'm not sure how the content saves. If it's a shortcode/html inside the post/page then yes the code should migrate with the database content. However, the actual plugin/section won't. That will need to be installed into the new site manually. Once installed and activated it should affect the imported code in the post/page.

 

Best place to check would be with the plugin/section author at http://www.pagelines.com/forum/index.php?app=forums&module=post&section=post&do=new_post&f=68 if you select the product form the drop down list he'll be able to advise on the best course of action when migrating.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.
