MaxGalleria: WordPress Gallery Platform
Export/Import (2 posts)

    I'm trying to export existing MaxGalleria Galleries (v. 1.6.3 on WP 3.8.1) and later import into a new installation of WP 3.9.1 / MaxGalleria 2.

    While I can import/export the Galleries successfully (using WP Importer), the actual images are neither exported nor imported.

    Would you have any pointers as to how I could best achieve this?

    There's not currently a good way to include the images when you export the galleries. This is because the images are stored as posts with their post parent equal to the ID of the gallery custom post type, and a copy of each is made within the WP media library (this is how the same image can be added to multiple galleries).

    This is different than exporting normal content (like blog posts) because the content field in the export file is empty. Not sure of a good way around this right now, sorry.
