Support » Plugin: WordPress Gallery Plugin - NextGEN Gallery » Export/Import galleries to different site

    Hi –

    I’m trying to move a NextGen gallery from one site to another.

    I exported the xml file for both “NextGEN Gallery – Album” and “NextGEN Gallery – Gallery” from the old site.

    When I import them into the new site, neither appear as Galleries or Albums. Importer says they are there but I can’t find them.

    These are not my sites. I am not a user of NextGen so not sure how the plugin works.

    Please advise, thanks.

    @marikane – The WordPress XML export/import file does not take into account the database tables that NextGEN Gallery uses. I would recommend a migration service that can move the entire site as is versus a piecemeal approach although it is possible.

    Thanks!

    @marikane – Here is a very basic outline to consider for migrations:

    • On origin site:
      • create a full verified backup of the site (all files and the entire database)
      • clear transients
      • copy all database tables
      • copy gallery folders and contents
    • On destination site (WordPress default installation):
      • ensure NextGEN Gallery plugin(s) are installed (and activated)
      • paste gallery folders and contents
      • paste (overwrite) all database tables
      • clear transients
      • optional, use Reset Option under Gallery > Other Options

    Thanks!

    – Cais.

    I found this guide to be real useful as well…

    Is there a way to do this if you don’t have access to your cpanel because you are using a hosting company that does not provide it.

    I don’t understand how to transfer NextGEN galleries from one site to another. Does anyone have a simple explanation OR a recommendation for another way to store and organize photos that does transfer easily across different WordPress sites?

    You can use this new free plugin to automatically export/transfer all your photos from NextGen Envira or FoolGallery plugins to your computer. It creates a zip file with matching folders for each gallery, which you can then use to import into your new WordPress website.

    I too am having a problem migrating to a new site. The images are there in the correct directory. I have tried deleting the NextGen plugin, dropping the wp_ngg_album, wp_ngg_gallery and wp_ngg_pictures tables from the database, and then reinstalling the plugin to start afresh. Now when I create a basic slideshow, the images all display in a continuous column – http://tenfoottwo.co.uk/?p=102

    Hi,

    I have a website with 3 languages and I need to copy the content written in this website to another website that has different url (also is built in the same 3 languages).
    Apart from that, if I write a post in one website in english language, it should be copied into the other website in the same language and in an automatically way.
    Is there a plugin that perform that?

    The original website is https://cym.com.ar/ and the other one which should receive the same content in the same language is http://www.metalcym.com.br/

    Is it understood?
    Thanks in advance.

    Bonjour,
    Est ce que quelqu’un peu m’expliquer comment intégrer une galerie, un diaporama crée dans Photoshop ou Lightroom sans être obligé d’avoir recours à un éditeur de galerie ou un carrousel pour les diaporamas.
    Il doit bien y avoir un plugin qui permet l’importation?.
    Si quelqu’un peut m’aider ça serai super
    Cordialement
