Support » How-To and Troubleshooting » Cannot Import Featured Images After Exporting Posts
3 years, 2 months ago
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.
Can anyone help? I have a large amount of posts (~5K) and cannot afford to manually update each post with the correct featured image..
Also, here are links to the old & new site… Any guidance is appreciated.

Are you exporting just a post or all content? If you export all content featured images should be exported, if not you will need a plugin to export them. Check http://wordpress.org/plugins/export-featured-images/
