Has anybody had issues from moving metabox data from post to post or database to database? Meta Box Builder is NOT involved.
I’m not sure if this is a server env issue, a MYSQL config issue, or a Metabox issue.
Has anyone else experienced an issue moving the DATA entered into a complex metabox (groups & conditionals), between databases (or even between fields in the same database).
So… we have a complex metabox (including groups & conditionals) that has been filled out on a custom post type. The post type is Exam and the metabox is questions.
In postmeta there is a serialized array with a meta_key of “questions” for a given post_id. Moving the (quite long) meta_value for that post_id/meta_key to another post_id/meta_key doesn’t result in the metabox being filled out in the new post (no data).
As an added clue LENGTH(meta_value) and CHARLENGTH(meta_value) between new and old differ… but it’s the same table…
I have tried it multiple ways but the only one that works is mysqldump –where post_id =XXX > file.sql and then mysql <file.sql.
The wp export/import also chokes on the serialized array.
I realize this is confusing but I admit I’m confused.
