Support » Plugin: FG Drupal to WordPress » Is there URL path settings support?

    Hello again. I hate to keep requesting help, and hopefully this will be the last time. The site I’m importing makes extensive use of URL path settings. For example, a page like /long-page-title will be renamed /short-title.html. Then, when another page contains a link to /short-title.html, the WordPress page created by your plugin links to /short-title.html in the Drupal site, instead of /long-page-title in the WP site. Is there some options I’m missing, or if not, is there some workaround to fix this? Thank you.

    PS: I *did* click the ‘Modify internal links’ button after the migration, and the result was,

    === START modify_links 2016-09-24 18:42:34 ===
    0 internal links modified
    === END modify_links 2016-09-24 18:42:34 ===

    Would upgrading to the Premium version help? Thank you.

    Yes, the feature to import the URL alias and redirect them to their corresponding WordPress URLs is included in the Premium version.

    Thank you again. Is this the feature described as ‘SEO: Redirects the Drupal URLs to the corresponding WordPress URLs’ in your site? I’m going to get the premium version anyway, but I’m curious, is this done through 301 redirects only, or do the links in the imported pages also get converted within the WordPress db?

    @makeonlineshop, you’re welcome. Maybe some of this discussion will be added to the plugin FAQs eventually. And I have to say, plugin works brilliantly as best I can tell, in case you have a need for it yourself.

    The plugin (since version 1.6.0) replaces the links in the posts content and also does 301 redirects.

    Great. One last question, is it possible to only modify links and not do 301? I ask because the WP site will be on a test server until I finish the WP theme to replicate the Drupal site. Or because test site has a different domain name, the 301s have no effect on the live Drupal site? Thank you.

    Yes it is possible.
    There is the option “Redirect the Drupal URLs”. If you don’t want to redirect them now, you just have to unselect this checkbox.
    Anyway, if the WordPress site is on a different domain or different path than the Drupal site, it won’t have any effect on the original Drupal site, even if you check this option.

    So I updated to the premium version, and selected the ‘Don’t import the redirects’, and it halted with the following error message:

    WordPress database error: [Table 'wwcf_wrdp1.wp_fg_redirect' doesn't exist]
    TRUNCATE wp_fg_redirect

    I’m also seeing this error in the import page:

    Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /home/wwcf/public_html/wp-content/plugins/fg-drupal-to-wp-premium/admin/class-fg-drupal-to-wp-custom-content.php on line 205

    WP is version 4.6.1. Thanks
    —————————
    UPDATE: I ran it again with ‘Don’t import the redirects’ unchecked but got the same error. Also, at the beginning of the log, it shows this:

    [WARNING] The Types plugin is required to manage the custom post types and custom taxonomies.

    So I will try this one more time after installing Types.

    Thank you for point it out.
    These issues are fixed in version 1.7.0. You can get it with the same link that you received by email.

    You need the Types plugin if you have custom posts, custom taxonomies or custom fields.
