Support » Plugin: Meta Tag Manager » Importing xml file (pages): added meta tags not included

  • Resolved wpenthusiast7



    I added specific meta tags to specific pages (so: unique meta tags per page) with your plugin.

    I now had to export pages of this wordpress site to an .xml file (EXPORT).

    When I IMPORT these pages (using the .xml file) to a different WP site (having the plugin also installed and activated), the previously added meta tags are not shown on the new site (they are not imported as well).

    (note: I do see the meta tags listed per page in the .xml file, but when import them using the .xml file, these meta tags are gone; this strange because the meta tags I used with the Yoast plugin (like meta description and meta title of pages) are maintained when imported).

    Thanks for you nice plugin!

    I haven’t messed with the WP import/export tool for a while, but if I’m not mistaken (the plugin page states so), it imports custom fields so in theory it should just import the MTM data too.

    Have you checked the database (if you know how to) to see whether the custom fields are imported? It’d be in wp_postmeta, with the meta_key mtm_data for a specific post_id

    Probably, if the import goes through, the issue is your settings whether to show MTM for a specific post type on your new site.

    Thanks for your quick reply Marcus.

    Yes, after several tries the mtm_data got copied (as checked in the db).
