xml import not transferring images to library. (4 posts)

    I used the Tools>export>import method of transferring a site from one server to another, same URL. None of the images transferred.
    I had taken a local copy of the whole site, so uploaded the wp-content/uploads folders' contents to the new server manually with FTP.
    Graet. All the images showing, everything good...

    ..except: none of the uploaded images are showing in the media library. Is there a way to get them to register in the library?

    I ran into this same issue, they're not in the media library because that would get written in the database somewhere. Anybody know where?

    This plugin helps immensely http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/add-from-server/ you can relink the pictures back to the posts without having to re-upload. Not the fastest solution, but a pretty good one.

    Does the add-from-server plugin add the pictures to the Media library, (and presumably the database)?

    I spoke to a WP developer about this and he thought (guessed)it's a 3.1 issue.
