I'm trying to move my posts from one wordpress install to another, using the Import/Export features built into tools. However, I am not able to import the featured images onto the new site.
I've looked at the XML file and I believe the problem is residing from a custom postmeta key holding the featured image URL. These are the two strings in question.
<wp:postmeta> <wp:meta_key>_thumbnail_id</wp:meta_key> <wp:meta_value><![CDATA]></wp:meta_value> </wp:postmeta> <wp:postmeta> <wp:meta_key>_rps_img_src</wp:meta_key> <wp:meta_value><![CDATA[/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/DSCF3104-520x280.jpg]]></wp:meta_value> </wp:postmeta>
Can anyone help? I have a large amount of posts (~5K) and cannot afford to manually update each post with the correct featured image..
