[resolved] How to re-import posts (6 posts)

    I found an explanation how it should work.
    Deleting the last_activity_id field with this SQL command
    SELECT * FROM options where option_name = 'g_crossposting_last_activity_id'

    It worked once. But now I would like to do it again to import some more previous posts.
    I deleted all old posts and deleted the id field again.

    But no luck this time. Somhow I cannot re-import.

    Any ideas?

    The old trick doesn't work anymore. In the past, I only kept track of the lastest post. But it turned out that this was not reliable enough to determine whether a post was already imported.

    Therefore, since a few versions, I keep track of every single post imported.

    If you look at the wp_options table, you will find entries with option names similar to:


    You would need to delete all those entries to reimport everything. Besides, you also need to issue the old command as it still serves as a backup method.

    Hi Sebastian, that is cool. Great tip.
    Just to be absolutely clear. I am not really SQL savvy. I delete all entries manually that look like this g_crossposting_z13nvh2zcrjgxbtlm23ritczom2hxx1vq

    I go through all pages of the table and delete all of them (but nothing else - haha).
    Here is a screenshot what I am thinking I have to delete.

    Thanks for quickly clarifying. Looking forward to re-import everything.
    Little hint. Maybe you can add a "Start new and import everything again" button. I bet many test the functionally first but would like to import more later.

    Hi Sebastian
    I now did as you suggested and deleted every entry starting with g_crossposting_
    and I also issued the old command, deleted all posts and clicked on Mass Import.

    But no luck. I get doubt 7 entries (posts from about a week) but not more.

    Isn't there a way to delete the complete table, delete the plug-in and start new again?

    That sounds a bit strange. Are you sure the older posts are still public? Also, how many posts are you importing? Maybe you limited it to 7?

    Hi Sebastian. Problem solved. All imported. Somehow, after a while it worked. Great tip and thank you. All resolved. :-)
