SMW Import


This plugin synchronizes information of an Semantic Media Wiki
with a wordpress blog.

It is supposed to be used in production without any downtime of the site.
The way SMW data is imported can be configured using a simple php mapping array.

Until now it supports importing poss, categories, attachments, meta data, links and full galleries. Only data which has actually changed will be imported, thus minimizing the
time on successive imports.

The supported import format is JSON. Thus it could also be used for data sources other than Semantic Media Wikis, as long as they export their data in JSON format.


  1. Upload smw-import to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Add data sources in the admin page
  4. Edit and adjust the mapping in the smwimport-mapping.php file
