Importing Pic Galleries from one WP to another WP (3 posts)

    I have two WP Blogs, I want to be able to update only one and the other to import that post with the picture galleries.

    I used the Import/Export feature that is with WP to get all the posts from blog A into B. Got all the posts, but none of the pictures and attachments.

    According to the threads I've found, this issue is at least 3 yrs old and no solution from WP. (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/import-feature-does-not-import-file-attachments?replies=23)

    Is there a way to get my picture galleries over from A to B? Has a simple work around been found?

    Also, what is the best plugin that I can use to import my posts from blog A into B including the pictures?

    Manually clone the site. Copy all sites files from A to B and also take a full backup of the db of site A and use at site B. Update wp-config.php accordingly and fix the url. I have used these steps many times without falter. You may have to use a search and replace plugin to update the hard coded URL's to images.

    When searching for WordPress help, use Google (WordPress Media move to new site) and filter the results by time, 'past year' works OK - look for resolved posts, content at popular blogs, or read up about the issue directly at the codex. Note: themes and plugins often do interfere with core functionality when they are not written well or used in combinations that have the same effect.

    I'm wanting to add Blog A posts to Blog B, this will not replace posts already on Blog B?
