[resolved] Exporting only part of my WordPress database? (3 posts)

    I have a very large, extensive and complex WordPress site which I need to create and test a new theme for. I've set up another WordPress install for that purpose, and need to import existing posts and categories to the test site, but I just don't want to import all of the thousands of entries that exist. Maybe 100 entries would do.

    Is there any way I can export only a part of my existing site to a file, and then import it into the test blog? (BTW, I cannot use PHPMyAdmin for this)

    If you can't use phpMyAdmin then you're pretty limited.

    What you could do is create another user account, then assign a hundred or so posts to it as the author. Use the built in WordPress exporter to only export the posts by that author.

    Thanks. That's a great suggestion and should work for me. (Already have lots of author accounts anyway)
