TYPO3 tt_news Importer
Carry over related news items from news_related_mm (2 posts)

    Hi there, I already sent a message to the builder of this plug-in but so far have had no response and i thought maybe someone here has any suggestions for me.

    Im transferring a site from a typo3 enviornment into wordpress. So far this plug-in has been working great importing the tt_news items with attachments and images but it's not transferring the 'related posts'. Our database goes back to 2002 and makes much use of this functionality.

    I'm positive it should be possible on a technical level to automatically copy the related posts in the same way the attachments and categories get transferred (as i can see from the sql commands in _typo3_api_news_categories() function in typo3-importer.php for example and seeing there is a required table in the typo3 backend called 'news_related_mm') but i'm just too inexperienced of a programmer to write this piece of code myself.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Kind regards,

    I'm sorry about the contact form not working at http://typo3vagabond.com/contact-typo3vagabond/. I've removed it for now.

    As you noticed, related posts coding isn't in place. Next, it's something that's not possible to do during the individual news importing, but as part of the final wrap up.

    I've got an upcoming project that might need this functionality, but that's not until January. If you'd like the feature now, I suggest sponsoring the change.
