    Resolved FED

    I am trying to perform a WordPress import of a number of pages with cloneable fields. I can see the metadata in the wordpress generated .xml file, but when I attempt to import the content, the cloneable content doesn't come in. Is this because those fields don't already exist in the database?

    Is there a workaround?

    The value of cloneable fields is stored as a sanitized array in 1 meta field and should be imported correctly IF you setup the same code on the imported site. Can you check that?


    Thanks for the reply. Yes, the same code had been set up on the imported site. Everything about the site was identical, except for the content.

    We ended up doing a mySQL dump of the content and importing it directly into the database. That did work, but wasn't exactly ideal.

    All the other fields came in as expected, it was only the cloneable ones that had this issue.
