importing posts and postmeta from a non DMS site

Recommended Posts




We're importing all post, postmeta and comments from another WP site that does not use DMS.

We need to truncate those tables before we do the import.

Will this import create problems with our DMS site?
If so, how can we avoid them ?

Basically I am trying to say that I tried once already to import posts and post meta and comments from another WP site and my theme settings went haywire! The menus too were messed up but most importantly I lost most my front end DMS work. SO any idea why this might be? Are there some theme settings in these folders (post/post meta/comments)?

hi @!kimann03


Could you let us know he steps you took in exporting and which settings you selected so we can try and replicate this for you please? i don't think it should affect anything. i have done this myself but not since release of DMS2

The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
