Simple Fields
Maintaining Same Keys/Values between Localhost and Server (2 posts)

    I love the simple-fields plugin, but I'm finding it a bit difficult to set fields and values on the server to have similar markup names as those fields and values on my localhost. For instance, a radio button on my localhost for value "X" has the name "radiobutton_num_2" whereas on my server the same radio button for value "X" has the name "radiobutton_num_3". This makes it difficult to write code that can be swapped back and forth with the server.

    Is there a way around this issue right now, and also is there any plan to give users of the plugin the ability to create their own keys and names for fields in the future?

    The only option I can see right now is to directly manipulate the serialized data stored in wp_options for the plugin itself.

    Hey Jonathan,

    What is your normal process for transferring a WP site from localhost to your web server?

    I think a database DUMP (or transfer) from your localhost to the web should do the trick. If you're not a strong database guy you may want to checkout Backup Buddy. It has a migration feature that could help with the transfer:
