Support » Plugin: WordPress Button Plugin MaxButtons » Compatibility AIO WP Migration plugin

  • Resolved jacobmcmxl


    Using Select Site Content results in string “/?page_id=nnnn” in URL field. This works fine on the site where the button is created.
    When transferring the site to WordPress on a ‘localhost’ (MAMP/XAMPP) for testing purposes using All-in-one WP Migration plugin that string remains “as is” and using the button then results in URL: localhost/?page_id=nnnn which is not resolved.
    Coding the full home site’s URL in the button’s URL field on the creating host i.e. https://a.b.c/?page_id=nnnn results correctly in URL: localhost/wordpress/?page_id=nnnn after transfer on a test localhost.
    My suggestion: Maxbuttons to code full (home) URL + /?page_id when button directs to a home site’s page.
    Note: External URLs do not change after transfer and work OK on testing localhost.

    Perhaps the ‘select site content’ should only return the relative URL, not the full URL. That’s a suggestion I’ll put on our todo list.

    In the meanwhile, you can do this manually. Omitting the domain portion works with URLs on the same site ( so just /page-id instead of localhost/ etc ) .

    You can also choose the put URL’s within the shortcode portion of Maxbuttons ( [maxbutton id=x url=’http://url’%5D . Migration plugins will probably pick that up.

    Thirdly you can manually migrate URLs in the database by running a mysql replace query on the maxbuttonsv3 table .

    Hi Bas, – FEEDBACK –
    I changed one button specifying the url= parameter (maxbutton=”x” url=”https://a.b.c/?page_id=nnn”) as you suggested in subject block, then exported/imported site to localhost.
    This worked fine! The migration tool recognizes the original site url and changes this to localhost/wordpress to make it work OK.

    Everything comes out a bit misformed here, but it sounds like you managed to make it work!
