Taxonomy Images
Export/Import doesn't retain taxonomy images (2 posts)

    An export of wordpress (and all terms) (using this plugin)and a re-import into a site in my network of WordPress sites doesn't retain the taxonomy image - causing me to reattach each image.

    Any idea how the taxonomy images can be retained upon export / import?

    Thanks for any help.

    I don't know how this would be done actually. I would most definitely have to build a custom importer exporter. In my experience both post and term id's can be changed during an import/export using the plugin.

    The Taxonomy Images plugin stores only the term_taxonomy_id and attachment_id for each association. I designed it this way to maximize the number of associations that can be stored for an installation. If these numbers change during import/export then the values in the plugin's option would be useless.

    When moving data to a new installation. I always use mysql import/export as you get all of the data and not just what passes the importer's filters.

    Open to hearing suggestions here. And if I am wrong about anything please let me know. I have only minimal experience using the importer.
