Import images & videos from a account !
The plugin will grab your images & videos from LoveIt and create new posts with it.
Boards are saved as categories under the parent category “”, so it’s easy for you to handle them later.
You can run it multiple time as it won’t save twice the same pin.
The data from LoveIt (pin ID, board ID, content source, etc) is saved as post metas (with prefix _loveit-) in case you need the original LoveIt informations.

The post content is
* for images, the full-sized image with a link to the original source
* for videos, a shortcode from the Jetpack plugin
See the FAQ for more information.

In case you use this plugin to make a backup, I suggest you setup a new WordPress blog to run the plugin on it.
You will then be able to export the posts & images generated and import them in another blog with the WordPress import/export tool.


I made this plugin because I wanted to leave :
I was bored of the ads, bored of them not answering questions (about the future of LoveIt, about reccurent breakdowns), afraid that they could shut down without a warning.
It took me a lot of time to make of my original code a plugin available for everyone:
If it saved you the time to backup manually a few hundred (or more!) pins, please consider converting this time into a donation
Thanks !

I’m not happy with the content created for posts imported. How can I change that ?

You can set the content you want by using the filters “loveit_importer_post_format_content” and “loveit_importer_post_extra_content”.
They are located inside function process_post_content().
