Export Posts with Media (3 posts)

    Hi there,

    Just wondering if anyone knows, for sure, a way to export posts, using export feature in WP but to include media?

    I have seen many, many posts on this but none really seem to resolve the issue…from what I can see :)

    My situation is, I have a main site, and a number of smaller sites. I would like to import into the smaller sites some posts that also have the images from my main site.

    So exporting posts from a certain category from the main site isn’t a problem however this never has media.

    Any thoughts on this would be great. I need to do this every month so something simple and quick would be ideal however I fear this may not be the case.

    Many thanks in advance for your thoughts :)

    How are you doing the export? If you select Download and import file attachments that should also pull down the attachments provided the smaller site can reach the original site.

    Once you have the posts into your smaller site you'll (probably) need to do some bulk deletions of the posts you don't want.

    Try one of these plugins for that part.

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks for getting back.

    What I have done on the main site is created a post category called...say...'small site'

    On the posts I want to export, and this may only be 10 I include them in this category.

    So to export I go to Tools > Export and select 'Posts'.
    Then select the category I wish to export...great.
    From here however there is no option to include the images that go with the posts...this is the problem.

    I have seen many with this problem and was wondering how on earth I can easily include the images with the posts to export?

    Many thanks, P
