Support » Plugin: One Click Demo Import » Images not importing (only referenced)

    Hi, this is a great plugin.

    However, I’m having issues with images importing into the media library. Essentially, they don’t, they are however referenced back to the original server.

    It seems that I can isolate this to using Beaver Builder. A standard WP site will import images into the library, however, when using Beaver Builder (with images on
    row backgrounds and in the Photo and Callout Modules within BB) it will only reference them.

    Is this is something to do with the page builders storing their content in the WP Meta table?

    Hi,

    just so I understand the problem in full… Some of the images do import for you? Or does not even 1 image import successfully?

    Do you get any import errors, while importing (images failing to import)?

    The issue really might be in image URLs being saved as metadata and not as content… But I’m not sure, because I never tested it with the Beaver Builder.

    Take care!

    Hi Capuderg, well, regarding some images importing and some not. Yes, I guess that’s correct. Any images using standard WP features such as the featured image in a post import fine. Any images contained within a page builder rows (saved via the WP Post Meta table) do not.

    I don’t get any errors. However, the process completes very quickly which is the first indication that the images have not been imported.

    Yes, I think Beaver Builder, Elementor and any other plugin will struggle because they save to the post metadata.

    I understand if you believe this to be beyond the remit of this plugin to fix and hope that Gutenberg is the solution we all need it to be as I’m sure that will be fine (I need to test).

    Hi,

    yes, there’s nothing we can do in the plugin, if the images are not even in then export/import file, so that they could be imported.

    I hope that the Gutenberg editor will be as good as some of the page builders, so that we can all use just one editor (Gutenberg).

    Take care!
