  • I have question about wordpress import and export tool. If my database is corrupted due to bad plugin writes bad code into my database, to export and import the posts from one database to another, will the posts carry bad codes? or import and export only transfer the pure content, not codes, it should safe, isnt it?

    The export/import will transfer the contents of your database, “bad codes” and all, I think. What do you mean by “bad codes”?

    Like Plugins, sometimes some of them writes bad codes into my database or CSS rules causing page showing JS errors, deleting them wont undo the damage, so the only last resort is to export the posts to a new database and start off fresh, will importing those posts end up getting those malicious code? or its safe?

    If you’re using the import/export tools that come with WP, plugin settings will not be exported.

    Thats great! thanks
